You’re fired. It’s only been two weeks and our new President has already been able to put his famous Apprentice line to work back exercising his legal right to remove an insubordinate federal employee who violated the law by refusing to comply with a legitimate and legal presidential executive order.
But the real story is that Sally Yates no doubt did this deliberately to become a martyr for the party of the left and to obtain for herself nationwide publicity in order to troll for a higher position in life, either in public office or a job at some non-profit or legal organization.
The fact is that Sally Yates was to loose her job within a week once the new Attorney General is confirmed and appointed by the president. What did she have to lose by refusing to comply with the presidential order? Nothing.
But what did she have to gain? Everything – including a better job at higher pay and potentially become recognized as a leader of the left.
She even went as far as to illegally direct her entire agency not to comply with the President’s order. She could’ve simply said she was not going to enforce it, but she wanted to go the extra step to get the extra publicity she craved so she had to take an extreme position. She knows that Presidents Obama and Carter both issued a similar order. This wasn’t about her believing something different than the President. She very keenly grasped the opportunity before her to propel herself into the limelight and play the national media to win favor with the left.
