Ginni Thomas was Trump’s initial informal Czarina of loyalty telling him who to fire for disloyalty and who to hire because they would be loyal to him personally and to his mission to make America “great” again. Her services were so valuable to Trump that he eventually employed someone on site, full-time job, his one time body man, baggage handler and confidant, John McEntee. Was Johnny qualified for the job? At least as qualified as Ginni Thomas (or her dear colleague Sidney Powell, or Jared, for that matter). Check this shit out:
Sadly, neither Ginni or Johnny were outliers in Trump’s inner circle. They are two of the many loyal, ambitious assistants that any self-respecting (or even self-loathing) autocrat can always find, drawn to power like flies to shit.
Here is Jamelle Bouie in the NY Times, laying it out in an opinion piece entitled Ginni Thomas is No Outliler.
At this point, there’s very little distance between the fringes of the modern Republican Party and the elites who lead it. Superficial differences of affect and emphasis mask shared views and ways of seeing. In fact, members of the Republican elite are very often the fringe figures in question.
Take Virginia (known as Ginni) Thomas. She is an influential and well-connected conservative political activist who has been a fixture of Washington since the late 1980s. A fervent supporter of former President Donald Trump, she reportedly urged his chief of staff, Mark Meadows, to do everything in his power to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election and keep Trump in power. And judging from her text messages to Meadows — which include the hope that the “Biden crime family & ballot fraud co-conspirators” are awaiting trial before military tribunals at Guantánamo Bay — she is also something of a QAnon believer, one of millions of Americans who embrace the conspiracy theory that Trump is fighting a messianic war against the “deep state.”
