Donald Trump, who claims to always hire “the best” people, lashed out yet again at another former White House official for exposing his administration.
On Wednesday, CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang asked the president and acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf if they had any words to say about former Trump DHS Chief of Staff Miles Taylor and his accusations that the president would frequently make unhinged demands that would have been illegal to carry out.
Trump responded by falsely claiming that he “never met him, I never heard of him,” despite the fact that there is a photograph of the two men standing together while smiling with their thumbs up in the Oval Office.
After claiming he never met him, Trump went on to call Taylor a “lowlife.”
“He left a year and a half ago, all of a sudden he’s badmouthing us!” the president fumed. “The reason is the Democrats, or somebody, got to him and said, ‘How would you like to speak,’ or whatever. He’s a lowlife! Anybody who does that is a lowlife!”
Trump then proceeded to call his opponents “bad people” and “sick people.”
