I work for Donald Trump, but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart his worst impulses.

The dilemma, which Trump does not grasp, is that many of the senior racists in his cadre of profit-driven criminals and demagogue-exploiting corporate plants are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them.

To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the crowd that cares what happen to our planet, its people, or the basic moral structure of society. We want the orgy of profit-taking to succeed and think many of our best scams have already made America more dangerous and less welcoming.

But we believe our first duty is to our future in public office and, of course, our book deals, and Trump continues to act in a manner detrimental to our coming financial prosperity after we inevitably deny our criminal actions and try to get speaking gigs and positions at think tanks.

That is why Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our possible post-incarceration careers while thwarting his less commercially viable impulses.

The root of the problem is Trump’s refusal to put optics before raping the country and lining our pockets. Anyone who works with him knows he’s not moored to any discernible PR plan that guides his decision making, and it’s really gonna be hard for us later when we have to explain how we backed the guy who said Nazis are “good people.”

Although he was elected as a Republican, the president has shown perhaps too much undisguised affinity for ideals long espoused by the right: hatred of the poor, racism, lack of concern for a coming environmental catastrophe, unfunded tax cuts, and an interest in letting people die from easily treatable illnesses. He sometimes forgets that the Republican party is also the party of letting anyone with deep pockets and no interest in the public good tell us what to do, and then not calling them out on it when we have pissy-pants hissy fits.

Of course, there are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: we’ve eliminated a shocking number of basic regulations that protect your health and safety, we succeeded, at least for a little while, in setting up concentration camps, and we’ve wasted more money on pointless military expenditures than any administration in history, including the cold-war chicken hawks and their military-industrial complex masters.

The president’s erratic behavior, though, threatens our gerrymandered hold on all branches of government, and even with our active efforts to disenfranchise black people, we now risk losing our immorally acquired control of the U.S. legislature.

But this erratic behavior would be more concerning if it weren’t for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to make sure that U.S. citizens of Mexican descent are denied passports, that our public lands are sold off at fire-sale prices, and that our standing around the world has fallen to its lowest level in history.

I’d like to close by saying, disingenuously, that it’s not Trump’s fault, but that “we as a nation” have allowed him to do this, which is really a load since he was elected by a corrupt system which gives far too much power to smaller, whiter states, and he is being propped up not by the American people but by Republicans like myself who just want to keep him in office until we’ve completely stacked the courts.

Thank you, and God bless America!
