Erstwhile US President Trump’s 29-year-old body man took charge of personnel in the concluding part of the administration — engaging beautiful young women and geeky guys that were called the
“Rockettes and the Dungeons and Dragons,” a new book revealed.
Accompanied by the White House in disorder in Trump‘s concluding part of the year in office, Johnny McEntee, 29, appeared apparently out of nowhere to become head of the extraordinarily powerful Presidential Personnel Office, as stated by
by ABC’s chief DC correspondent, Jonathan Karl.
The MAGA fanatic — whose former job was carrying Trump’s luggage on excursions — was “a f–king idiot,” a high-level cabinet secretary informed Karl in an extract issued publicly by The Atlantic on Tuesday.
But McEntee persuaded the commander in chief that he was the man to ferret out “secret Never Trumpers” who had penetrated the White House — and speedily became what a senior administration official detailed as “deputy president,” the bombshell book claims.
McEntee as well hired then-20-year-old conservative Instagram “influencer” Camryn Kinsey as his
Kinsey afterward said in a discussion,
“Only in Trump’s America could I go from working in a gym to working in the White House, because that’s the American dream.”
“became the deputy president,” a senior source revealed Karl.
McEntee enjoy greatly his political muscle and made no bones concerning flexing it, Karl writes.
A source within made a witty remark that additionally the comely young women, the handsome McEntee engaged
“guys who would be totally no problem to Johnny in going after those girls.”
Book cover for “Betrayal.”
“Betrayal” by Jonathan Karl extends over the final weeks and months of the Trump presidency.
The book asserts that uber-Trump loyalist McEntee made his chops playing on Trump’s fears concerning “deep state” schemers close to home.
“Some Trump aides privately compared the PPO [under McEntee] to the East German Stasi or even the Gestapo — always on the lookout for traitors within,”
says the book, ready to be released next week.
One White House subordinate learned of the office’s claimed rabid fervor the hard way.
The young woman “liked” an Instagram post by Taylor Swift, a Joe Biden supporter — and the signal was considered so disturbing that White House chief of staff Mark Meadows received a phone call concerning it in the middle of a Senate confirmation hearing for Trump Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett.
“To the enforcers of Trumpian loyalty, this was a sign of treachery in the ranks,”
Karl writes, in addition that the “enforcers” were in McEntee’s office.
It’s not clear what transpired to the staffer, an assistant at the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
McEntee, as head of the PPO, oversaw the engaging and sacking of about 4,000 political appointees in the White House succeeding landing the greatly desired position around February 2020, The Atlantic also said.
He had begun working for the administration in 2018 as Trump’s baggage handler — surprisingly and speedily fired following his FBI background check found unexpectedly he’d failed to report “suspiciously large sums of money’’ tied to gambling, Karl writes.
But McEntee evidently was never far from Trump’s radar. The president personally asked for him to lead the PPO in early 2020, over the disapproval of some staffers.
Challenged over engaging McEntee, Trump exploded.
“You people never f–king listen to me!” the president blistered, as stated by the book. “You’re going to f–king do what I tell you to do!”
After which other more skillful aides with knowledge of constitutional law caution Trump he could not lawfully invalidate the 2020 presidential election results, McEntee texted Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff on Jan. 1, 2021 — indicating all the reasons why he felt the president should try it.
As McEntee bragged self-assuredly when first asked to take the post,
“People have been telling me I should do that for a long time.”
“I didn’t feel ready before, but I am 29 now and I’m ready,”
he disclosed, as stated by Karl.
McEntee did not return emails requesting comment from The Post on Tuesday. The phone number listed for him did not pick up.
