Trump loyalist bashes him for the first time as 'a traitor' and a complete idiot: book [View all]

A Donald Trump loyalist came forward for the first time to bash him in Jonathan Karl's new book.

In an interview with MSNBC's Jen Psaki, the ABC News reporter revealed that in his book "Tired of Winning," someone who has previously not come out publicly against Trump dropped a bomb on the former president.

"He lacks any shred of human decency, humility or caring," the former White House official told Karl. "He is morally bankrupt, breathtakingly dishonest, lethally incompetent, and stunningly ignorant of virtually anything related to governing, history, geography, human events or world affairs. He is a traitor and a malignancy in the nation, and represents a clear and present danger to our democracy, and the rule of law."

Karl explained that the person was in the West Wing and worked alongside Trump for more than a year at a "high level." The key title is "official," indicating it wasn't a staffer or aide.
