Forbes editor issues warning to companies intending to hire Trump press secretaries:

Recommended Posts

'We'll assume everything you talk about is a lie'

In the wake of Wednesday's attempted coup, Forbes — the American business magazine — has issued a warning to companies hoping to hire former officials from President Donald Trump's administration.

 

Businesses that choose to hire Trump administration alumni will, the editor said, be held to account.

 

"Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie," the magazine's editor Randall Lane wrote. "We're going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we'd approach a Trump tweet," Lane added

In the article titled 'A Truth Reckoning: Why We're Holding Those Who Lied For Trump Accountable,' Lane reflected on the lies that spurred rioters to ransack the US Capitol building.

 

The easiest way for American democracy to recover from the insurrection, he wrote, is to "create repercussions for those who don't follow the civic norms."

 

In the Forbes article, Lane name-called Trump's press secretaries and a former senior counselor to the president — Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephanie Grisham, Kayleigh McEnany, and Kellyanne Conway — and referred to the group as "Trump's fellow fabulists."

 

This ultimatum follows the news that some White House staff are worried about securing their next job, according to Politico.

Administration officials told the media outlet that they fear Wednesday's events will damage their reputations, finances, and future careers.

 

Lower-level Trump staffers are also "trying to save face for future employment," a source told Politico.

 

In recent days, several high-profile Trump officials have resigned to distance themselves from the president.

 

On Thursday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos resigned as did Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

On Wednesday, Melania Trump's chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews, and Deputy National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger all resigned.

The death of mad magazine was the last tie to my reading list from when I was young. I'd love to go find all the old mad magazines and national Lampoon's that I read when I was a kid

Both were great.  I still get MAD since the majority of the reprints I've never seen.  Didn't read it for years.  Glad it's back in my life.  Reprints or not - still funny and mostly new to me.  Have you seen that movie about the creator of National Lampoon, Animal House and Caddyshack: Doug Kenney?  "A Futile and Stupid Gesture".  Worth seeing.
