Anonymous New York Times op-ed sparks frenzy of amateur linguists, sleuths

The day after the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by a high-ranking member of the Trump administration, White House staffers, cabinet members, and Republicans at large have been outspoken in their outrage-and their denials of having written the piece themselves.

Pundits are lining up to weigh in on a salacious New York Times op-ed allegedly penned by an anonymous #Resister in the Trump administration, with some experts on television calling the piece an all-out coup against the president.

Mr Coats said in a statement that speculation that he or his principle deputy wrote the piece was "patently false".

Yet senior GOP lawmakers rejected the idea that the op-ed would damage Trump, insisting instead that it would help him during the midterms and in the 2020 presidential election.

Who wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed about Trump?

The US President fired back at the piece and its "gutless" author, demanding they be exposed for "national security purposes".

"We all know Putin wrote the op-ed and the NYT claimed it's a senior Trump official because they think that's true", Ben Shapiro tweeted.

Trump called Woodward's new work "fiction".

"This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes", Kelly said.

Dr. Bandy Lee told Salon and The New York Daily News on Thursday that two White House officials flagged Trump's behavior last October.

Donald Trump responded with fury, on Twitter and in comments at public events at the White House.

In the article, the anonymous writer slams the US president, claims to be part of the "resistance" against Trump to "thwart" his "more misguided impulses", and even reveals that cabinet members once considered using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

A livid Trump questioned whether the author is a legitimate administration official, but also demanded that the Times out him or her and suggested that the person should be investigated.

Even the Washington Post, no defender of the president, called the op-ed old news, and a "PR stunt".

It's also confirmed that Ben Mendelsohn will portray Talos, who's the leader of the Skrull army that'll invade Earth. It doesn't look like that make-up allows for a very expressive face, but their design is pretty loyal to the comics.


"I was absolutely nervous about it for any number of reasons, one being the safety and security of the writer".

Under that theory, Michael Socolow, a communications professor at the University of ME, outlined a six-point argument on Twitter, including that Coats publicly laughed at Trump when he was told the USA president wanted to invite Vladimir Putin to the White House.

"We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers", the paper said.

The Times column said that those working for Trump made sure sanctions were placed on Russia for poisoning a Russian spy in Britain, despite the president's reluctance to do so.

The official wrote: "Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the Cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment", but decided against it to avoid a constitutional crisis.

The column has set off a wild guessing game on the author's identity.

"We did not", he said.
