In what is yet further confirmation of the warning to Trump supporters published for months here at D.C. Whispers, longtime Trump ally Roger Stone delivered an on-the-record warning to the POTUS and his supporters today regarding just how close the Trump presidency is to being utterly destroyed.
…Last night, the flames leapt into the West Wing. Moore’s dramatic loss to Democrat Doug Jones in a state Trump carried by 62 percent is sowing panic among some of Trump’s kitchen Cabinet. “This shows the public is taking the sexual harassment issue seriously. The president has a big problem,” a Republican close to the White House told me. Even before the election, Democrats renewed calls for Trump to resign for his alleged treatment of women. This week, three of Trump’s accusers launched a media tour to elevate the issue. Even a member of Trump’s administration weighed in. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Face the Nation that Trump’s accusers should be “heard” and “dealt with.”
Stone also believes Trump could be removed from office because he has surrounded himself with disloyal Cabinet members and other top officials. “Nikki Haley stuck a knife in his back,” Stone said, referring to her comments about Trump’s accusers. According to Stone’s back-of-the-napkin tally, only two Cabinet members would vote against invoking the 25th Amendment, the provision by which the president can be deemed unable to serve (Congress would have to vote by a two-thirds majority to remove him permanently.)
Are things as precarious as Mr. Stone suggests? In short, yes. The Roy Moore fiasco in Alabama more fully exposed POTUS Trump’s political flank. His supporters have grown far too accustomed with Mr. Trump’s ability to survive media-generated attack, but in the last month there are signals that Trump’s base is finally showing signs of fatigue. Without that base the President loses his ability to instill fear in his D.C. political foes which includes nearly the entirety of the political establishment be they Republican or Democrat. If this trend of a shrinking base continues, the political/media pile-on will be even greater and Donald Trump might not survive the onslaught.
