Stephanie Cegielski was the Communications Director for the Make America Great Again PAC until it was disbanded, to further the “outsider” narrative. She remained firmly on the Trump Train for months after that. Now, she no longer supports him. At all.
She just wrote an op/ed with this headline: “An Open Letter to Trump Voters from His Top Strategist-Turned-Defector”
And this is the tagline: “I respect Trump’s fans. That’s why I can no longer support the man himself”
Her main points:
- She supported him as he seemed to be the perfect embodiment of a protest candidate
- The campaign never actually thought that he’d be the frontrunner or win the nomination
- His ego dominates everything and because of that she quit
- His campaign is a charade and he would do damage to the U.S. if elected President
Her final paragraphs:
“Trump acts as if he’s a fictional character. But like Hercules, Donald Trump is a work of fiction.
No matter how many times he repeats it, Trump would not be the “best” at being a president, being in shape, fighting terrorism, selling steaks, and whatever other “best” claim he has made in the last 15 minutes.
He would be the best at something, though. He is the best at looking out for Donald Trump — at all costs.
Don’t let our country pay that price.”
