Breitbart Against Trump?

The web publication seems to have turned against Trump out of frustration that his own people feel free to criticize him.

Perhaps the real story here is that the Cabinet is turning against Donald Trump. Breitbart is drawing attention to that fact and (I think, appropriately) calling out the President for displaying “weakness.” The mainstream media, of course, will always present those who criticize Trump as sources of sound analysis. Breitbart has a different perspective.

Thus, Sunday’s lead story at Breitbart was headlined: “Projecting Weakness: President Trump Allows Inner Circle to Publicly Disparage Him as Globalists March.

In the past several days, several members of President Donald J. Trump’s inner circle have publicly disparaged him—and the president has done nothing public to stop them.

First, National Economic Council (NEC) director Gary Cohn—the former number two banker at Goldman Sachs and a top Democrat who joined the Trump administration after the president’s election—bashed the president in an on-record interview with the Financial Times.

[…]

The Washington Post added in its own reporting that Cohn was overheard in a Long Island restaurant trashing President Trump.

“On Wednesday evening, Cohn complained loudly about Trump while dining with friends at a Long Island restaurant called the Frisky Oyster,” the Washington Post’s Damien Paletta and Philip Rucker reported on Friday. “Cohn explained to his companions — in a loud voice overheard by others — that he had to be careful not to give Trump too much lead time about some new ideas because the president could disclose the information prematurely and upend the planning process, according to a person familiar with the dinner.”

Now, after Cohn’s threats to resign over his disagreements with the president, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared on Fox News Sunday this weekend to also disparage the president. Tillerson declined to say that the president supports American values, saying that the State Department does but that “the president speaks for himself.”

In addition, Tillerson defended globalists arguing that he does not “see any division” between those who support globalization and those who support the “America First” agenda that the president campaigned on.

But, of course, he refused to defend the President but said he “speaks for himself.”
