A high-level administration source says the White House expressed disregard for the mainstream media’s smears related to personnel appointments.
In an exclusive remark to Breitbart News, the source said, “The media have become experts at crying wolf, and as a result, their credibility is at an all-time low.”
“The days of canceling conservatives are over.”
Corporate media members, journalists, and pressure groups went full offensive in recent days over the White House staffing. Trump loyalists were then appointed to fill several positions under the new administration.
John McEntee, President Trump’s aide, headed the presidential personnel office since February. McEntee has then made various major appointments on important issues to Trump’s platform, including Big Tech censorship.
Reports say McEntee fast-tracked replacements of alleged unfaithful administration staff in recent months.
Anti-Defamation League and the mainstream media purportedly attacked an appointee, Dr. Darren J. Beattie, as a Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad member.
Beattie told New York Times he was open for the attacks from the ADL.
“The ADL pretends to be an organization that protects Jews, but it really exists to protect Democrats,” Beattie told the news outlet. As a Jewish supporter of President Trump, the attack by the far-left ADL and Jonathan Greenblatt, its disgraced leader, is considered an honor.
On the other hand, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz welcomed Dr. Darren J. Beattie’s appointment, who previously worked as his speechwriter.
“Congrats, Darren! Great choice by @realdonaldtrump,” tweeted Rep. Gaetz.
Democrats also expressed outrage over Jason Richwine’s appointment. Richwine is a contributor to the Center for Immigration Studies, Harvard Ph.D., National Review contributor. He is also a considered leading voice for controlled, legal immigration.
Richwine was chosen to be second-in-command at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the previous week.
Two congressional Democrats frowned upon Richwine’s appointment and became the subject of an angry letter. The Dems allege Richwine’s “beliefs and actions are plainly disqualifying from federal service” due to his views on IQ published by Politico.
Democrat challenger Joe Biden has been declared by the media as the president-elect, albeit still being challenged in court by President Trump’s campaign. However, if the campaign falls short, the staff’s ongoing appointments would be halted in two months.
