In a counter-narrative to the pervasive cancel culture that seeks to prevent conservatives from simply making a living, former White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley says hiring people who served in the Trump administration would actually enhance companies because of their skill set in knowing how the federal government operates.
Traditionally, the revolving door between government and the private sector is a way to make big bucks, although Democrats seem to usually be the prime beneficiaries.
While a concerted effort exists on the vindictive left to retaliate against those who worked for President Trump by isolating, ostracizing, and even de-platforming them from the marketplace, and by pressuring employers or potential employers, Gidley suggested that the increasingly woke corporate America is overlooking a valuable resource.
“Of course, they’re going to attack those who worked in the administration, But people who work in a White House, whether it be Republican or Democrat, have a depth of knowledge of how the government works. That’s an asset to any entity at all. But they also understand the players in Washington, D.C.,” Gidley told “America This Week” host Eric Bolling on the Sinclair network. “Those are characteristics, those are skills, that I think a lot of people would benefit by.”

“Seventy-five million people voted for Donald Trump,” Gidley continued, “and it would behoove those on the left, those companies who are kowtowing to the radicals, and the ones who are so woke and so vocal, it would benefit them to understand, half of this country doesn’t agree with that agenda, and they should try and get our business as well.”
As guilt by association, unfortunately, continues to permeate, Bolling mentioned the speculation that some companies are having second thoughts about offering gigs to ex-Trump officials — possibly including Kayleigh McEnany who was purportedly a possible fit for the Fox News Channel — in the aftermath of the universally condemned chaos at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
“It’s pretty obvious that the left is saying that if you do not agree with impeaching this president, then you do agree with the riots at the Capitol, those lawless thugs who attacked our very democracy. That’s, of course, a shrewd political tactic,” Gidley acknowledged.
“It’s dangerous, though, to the future of this country, as well, to try to conflate those issues, when every Republican was consistent, and absolutely denounced what happened at the Capitol, but also denounced what happened in this country this summer, when billions of dollars of damage occurred across out city streets. Cops were targeted by BLM and Antifa and the ‘defund the police’ movement. Democrats were virtually silent then…violence has no place in this democracy,” Gidley asserted.
What Gidley is alluding to is that liberals in and out of government, along with the media industry, labeled summer-long riots that swept across the country as mostly peaceful protests while characterizing the inexcusable riot at the U.S. Capitol, perpetrated by a fringe group of lawbreakers among hundreds of thousands of mostly peaceful rally attendees, an insurrection.
Gidley recalled that, despite the Democrats’ obsessive, and likely unconstitutional effort to impeach a federal officer after they’ve left office, “Donald Trump didn’t support the riots, in real-time he told them to stop. He told them to be peaceful; he told them to go home in peace, not attack police officers.” The ex-White House aide then recounted some of the inflammatory rhetoric from Democrats during the Trump presidency.
Corporate America has revealed itself to be disproportionately susceptible to gaslighting from online bots and trolls as orchestrated by radical-left, relentlessly anti-Trump activist groups. Against this backdrop, Gidley claimed that “the whole lie about ‘unity’ is completely the biggest farce I’ve ever seen.”
Parenthetically, the Sinclair Broadcast Group has announced that it is shutting down Bolling’s show and that the ex-Fox News host has opted “to pursue other professional opportunities.” Bolling is set to launch a podcast with NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre among other ventures.
