A White House official penned a searing op-ed identifying themselves as part of the "steady state," or people within the Trump administration working to thwart President Trump's "impulsiveness" and "pettiness." Trump criticized the New York Times for publishing the anonymous letter and said the author was “gutless.” Trump also tweeted "TREASON?" soon after the letter was published. The letter comes amid buzz of Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book, which portrays a White House staff with little confidence in its president. What do you think of the anonymous op-ed? Are the author and other dissenters in the White House courageous or cowardly? What actions, if any, would you like to see them take?
