Why do people fall for obvious bullshit?

It's part of the gaslight tactic to isolate Trump.

I've considered there's a good chance that someone is setting him up to cause trouble in the administration.

The NYT Op-ed is 100% fake. It was fabricated so that people would not overlook Woodward's book.

This shit is so easy to see.

Also, with the added benefit of causing turmoil in the WH.

Kind of what I was thinking

It's Trump himself. He knows that there are disloyal elements in the administration and it's a ploy to root them out.

On the other hand, Michael Caputo claimed this morning that he knows who it is, and it's a woman and is well known to the populace.

Why would he specifically use a word only Mike Pence uses then?

[–] Spaceballs-1 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

It's all just a larp. They chose that word specifically to try to drive a wedge between Trump and Pence.

It's very transparent and poorly done.

Or a clever ploy to put a wedge between him and the president(which one is more likely you think?) That Pence would so blatantly go against Trump or that it's a PsyOP?

[–] TheAmerican [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I've considered this to. I almost lean more towards it being a ploy because I think Mike Pence would be smart enough not to use that word essentially giving himself away.

Yep. I would say everyone pretty much. But he fired Bannon and surrounded himself with deep state goons. I predict Repubs impeach him, after they've secured the Nov election, in a soft coup.
