Rather Rants: Trump Cronies Trade White House for Jailhouse

Dan Rather, a familiar face to many with a penchant for stirring the pot, has once again taken to his online newsletter to launch a scathing attack on the former President, Donald Trump. In a headline that screams “The White House to the Big House” and a subhead that reads “Felons present and pardoned in Trump-world,” Rather goes on a tirade lambasting Trump’s associates, who he claims have had run-ins with the law.

The focal point of Rather’s disdain is the recent imprisonment of former Trump economic aide, Peter Navarro. Navarro was found guilty of contempt of Congress and is currently behind bars for refusing to cooperate with the investigation into the events of January 6, 2021. This seems to have fueled Rather’s fire, as he also honed in on the return of Paul Manafort, Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, who found himself in hot water over a prolonged tax case.

With colorful language, Rather highlights Navarro’s brash statement to reporters upon entering prison, saying, “I’m pissed.” Rather interprets this as a reflection of Navarro’s refusal to spill the beans on the alleged plot to overturn the 2020 election, a sentiment that Rather suggests is shared by many.

In classic Rather style, the veteran newsman pulls no punches in his scathing critique, likening Manafort and Navarro’s loyalty to not snitching on their boss to prison slang. True to form, Rather dismisses the reintegration of these individuals into Republican politics as “another day of disbelief” for the GOP.

Not one to miss an opportunity to take a swing at Trump, Rather takes a stroll down memory lane, recalling his own tumultuous departure from CBS News in 2004 following his controversial reporting on former President George W. Bush’s military service. He suggests that Trump’s legal entanglements and his associations with ex-convicts could hinder his chances of winning over independent voters.

Rather ominously hints that his newsletter will continue to serve as a platform to denounce Trump’s legal woes, painting a bleak picture of the Republican Party’s embrace of figures like Manafort, Navarro, and other individuals with prison records. With a flair for the dramatic, Rather seems to revel in the idea of Democrats finding solace in the GOP’s apparent fondness for these characters. All in all, Rather’s tirade is a vivid example of the entrenched divisions and acrimony in present-day politics, as seen through the lens of a seasoned news provocateur.
