How do we get Trump out of the White House in the end? Will he run back to Mar-a-Lago in silence, never to be heard from again? Or will he and all the other parasites still stuck on him have to be dragged out on January 20th? Maybe he actually thinks he can keep the White House for another four years if he stalls long enough and gets some sort of intervention from the Supreme Court. Thankfully, certain staff around Trump are finally starting to put their foot down and refuse to enable him. And that is exactly what acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf did recently.

According to reporting by the New York Post, Wolf refused to follow orders to fire top cybersecurity official, Christopher Krebs. The order came after Krebs refuted claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election. Krebs has even gone so far as to create a website that points out fact versus fiction when it comes to claims about the election, which is sure to press a couple of Donald Trump’s buttons, to say the least.  What probably ticked off Trump the most, though, is that Krebs is allegedly close to DHS Chief of Staff Miles Taylor, who recently revealed himself as “Anonymous.” 

Honestly, it was the president saying, ‘What the heck is this guy doing? He’s giving me grief before the election and now he’s saying there’s nothing wrong in the world?” One White House official stated.

This is what happens in Trump’s fake White House — if you stand up for the mathematical fact that he lost the election, he wants you fired. Thankfully, someone is standing up to our soon-to-be-evicted president.

Chad was asked by the president to fire Anonymous’ best friend and he’s refusing,” the official added. “He is not managing his agency, but that should not surprise anyone because he is a [former DHS Secretary Kirstjen] Nielsen lackey.” According to the White House official that reported to the New York Post.

As cliche as it is, the phrase, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing,” fits well here, and it’s certainly good that at least some in the Trump administration are not allowing him to run the country into the ground with reckless abandon.
