Wall Street Journal’s Michael Bender’s new book is already a #1 bestseller. George Conway, former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, got ahold of ‘Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost’ and started tweeting out tidbits on the book. And one part, well they all were, is interesting as it pertains to last year when the Secret Service whisked the former president to a White House bunker as hundreds of anti-racist protesters gathered outside the executive mansion.
This was after George Floyd was murdered by a police officer, so protests broke out. And Trump is like an arsonist who lights a fire, runs to his safe place, then blames the people that got burned. After the story was published by the New York Times, Trump tried to claim that he went to the bunker for an “inspection,” but then-Attorney General Bill Barr contradicted him.
Trump likes to play the strongman. He wants the world to see him as a tough guy, but he’s weak. He literally hid from the American people that night. And he knows he was exposed when the story got out. Trump was ridiculed, and hashtags spread through Twitter, calling him the “BunkerPresident,” among other things.
According to what George Conway tweeted about Bender’s book, Trump didn’t take it very well. In fact, Trump said whoever leaked it should be charged with treason, adding, “They should be executed!”
Former guy’s reaction to the NYT’s report that he spent part of a night in the WH bunker:
“‘Whoever [leaked] that, they should be charged with treason! They should be executed!'”

According to reports last year, Trump and his family had been shaken by the size and venom of the crowds. And while they were shaken, most of us were not surprised by the protests. We saw a murder being played on TV over and over again. A man calling out for his mother while a police officer killed him. So, maybe, and I’m just throwing this out there, having a president that’s capable of empathy should be a prerequisite to sitting in this highest seat in the land. Instead, we had one that was surprised that Americans were upset after seeing an unarmed man being murdered.
