Shocking: McCarthy Attacks Trump


If McCarthy really did this, MAGA is going to hate him.

Miles Taylor, formerly recognized for writing an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times about his experiences in the Trump White House, recently revealed in an interview that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy privately holds the view that Donald Trump is “a buffoon,” despite publicly supporting him.

According to Newsweek, Taylor had worked as a staff member in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from 2017 to 2019 under former President Trump, briefly serving as DHS chief of staff. His anonymous column titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” was published in 2018, attracting widespread attention for its critical stance on Trump from within the government.

Since leaving the Trump White House in 2019, Taylor has continued to be a vocal critic of the former president while remaining engaged in Republican politics. During his recent interview with The Guardian to promote his book “Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy from the Next Trump,” he addressed various issues the country is facing, including the fact that many party leaders publicly support Trump while privately opposing his influence.

Taylor specifically called out Kevin McCarthy, asserting that the Speaker of the House had once personally referred to Trump as a “danger.”


“He thought Trump was a buffoon and a danger, and I’m sure Kevin still thinks that privately,” Taylor stated. “Yet these individuals continue to publicly support him out of fear. This collective anonymity is posing a significant danger to us.”

He also pointed out the hypocrisy of some people who criticized him for publishing anonymous critiques of the president but then requested anonymity themselves during his book interviews to speak candidly.

Regarding Trump’s potential candidacy for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, McCarthy appeared on CNBC and expressed uncertainty about whether Trump is the strongest candidate in the current field, although he acknowledged that Trump could win the general election against President Joe Biden.

In late 2020, journalist Carl Bernstein claimed that at least 21 Republican Senators had expressed contempt for Trump when speaking with him. However, some of the lawmakers mentioned in the list, including Chuck Grassley of Iowa, refuted the allegations.
