Trump Administration Insider: President Wanted to 'Maim' Migrants - 2020-08-25
Miles Taylor, the former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, joined Rick Wilson and Molly Jong-Fast on this episode of The New Abnormal to share the eye-watering tales of what Trump is really like when the cameras are switched off.
The national security official couldn't get through a meeting "without him doing 20 tangents, becoming irascible, turning red in the face, demanding a diet Coke, spewing spit," Taylor explained. "Literally out of goddamn nowhere, he'd be like, 'You know, who's just my favorite guy? The MyPillow guy. Do any of you have those pillows?'"
When it came to the border wall, Trump would dream up "sickening" medieval plots "to pierce the flesh" of migrants, rip all the families apart, "maim," and gas them, Taylor claims. "This was a man with no humanity whatsoever," Taylor says. "He says, we got to do this, this, this, and this, all of which are probably impossible, illegal unethical," Taylor recalls, but he was writing them down as the president spoke. "And he looks over me and he goes, 'you fucking taking notes?'"
