(JustPatriots.com)- Politico published a lengthy article about a group of female former Trump staffers who have become an anti-Trump coffee klatch of sorts. And at the heart of this group is Alyssa Farah Griffin, the former White House Director of Strategic Communication who is now a co-host on “The View” and a regular contributor on CNN.
The Politico article recounts the anti-Trump women’s concern for Cassidy Hutchinson as she peddled her litany of lies to the January 6 select committee.
They were so proud of her for appearing “before the world” to “tell the truth,” Alyssa Farah Griffin told Politico.
Of course, much of “the truth” Hutchinson peddled turned out to be a lie based on hearsay. But let’s not pick nits.
This group of former Trumpers-turn-Trump-Haters is described by one of its members as the “small, lonely girls club.”
Yes, they are so lonely, getting endless hits on CNN and co-hosting jobs on “The View.” They’re regular voices crying in the wilderness, aren’t they?
Politico explains that these women who all disavowed Trump after the January 6 riot have “found themselves largely in the same political space,” namely, they are “persona non grata” within the same political infrastructure where they spent most of their careers. So they “formed a quasi-support network of their own.”
Like “The First Wives Club.”
After Cassidy Hutchinson peddled her fantastical tales of Trump commandeering the presidential SUV by choking a Secret Service agent and grabbing the steering wheel, the “Bitter Ex” club formed “an informal kind of ‘rapid response’ unit” to defend Hutchinson on Twitter and cable news.
And people were mean to them, Politico whines. Twitter and Instagram users attacked them for defending Hutchinson, with some calling them “traitors” and others blasting them for daring to work for Trump in the first place.
Worse still, Politico adds, some people are accusing them of being opportunists who are using their anti-Trump schtick to get cable news appearances, book deals, and co-hosting spots on “The View.”
Yeah, because there’s some truth in that.
These women aren’t defying the establishment; they’re caving to it.
There’s nothing brave or heroic about feeding the corporate media, social media, and the popular culture exactly what they want.
