President Trump’s administration has been, at times, a revolving door of bureaucrats and speed bumps, (sometimes one in the same), who fail to meet the CEO-in-Chief’s lofty expectations.
This is the reality of have a resultist as President: Folks will come and go a little more rapidly than before, all in the name of getting to that finish line. The left paints this turbulence as troubling, while the President’s supporters see it as an aggressive hiring policy designed for maximum impact in a minimal time frame.
Now, after the Commander in Chief fired the Department of Homeland Security’s head of cyber security, one of prominent progressive is peeved.
Top Democrats have condemned the firing by Donald Trump of top cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs after he refuted the president’s claims of election fraud.
Trump had appointed Krebs director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security when CISA was established in 2018.
After his dismissal, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi described Krebs as a “deeply respected cybersecurity official” whose “patriotic service” had worked to dispel misinformation.
“The President’s insistence on distracting and dividing the country by denying his defeat in the election undermines our democracy,” she said in a statement, citing the conclusion of top election officials that there was no evidence “any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
And that’s not all:
“Instead of stooping to this dangerous and shameful charade, Trump needs to get serious about crushing the accelerating pandemic that has killed nearly 250,000 Americans, infected over 11 million people in our country and devastated the livelihoods of tens of millions more,” Pelosi added.
Pelosi’s comments on the pandemic are peculiarly strong given a recent, embarrassing incident in which she was caught flouting the rules at a California hair salon, sauntering around mask-less and indoors.
