As you may remember from back in January, after Trump hired former Nixon home health aide and Fox nudge Monica Crowley to be a national security advisor, someone noticed she heavily plagiarized other people's work for her dissertation and for a book. If you click through those links, you'll see we're not talking about a couple lines here and there, which might be excused by innocent errors or sloth, but hundreds of misappropriated words, indicative of a casual attitude, let us say, toward the intellectual property of others.

Her publisher pulled her book, and Crowley lost her White House gig, claiming to prefer to "remain in New York to pursue other opportunities." She went quiet awhile, but now she's back. Are you expecting perhaps contrition? Even Ben Domenech pretended to be contrite -- but that was years ago, before the New Age. Now:
Monica Crowley: Plagiarism Charges Were a 'Political Hit Job'
Ain't even kidding.
...“There is a very toxic—and it’s getting increasingly toxic and poisonous—atmosphere of personal destruction in Washington and the media...It’s always sort of been there, but now it’s at a whole different level,” Crowley told Hannity. 
“In some ways, I was something of the canary in the coal mine -- the attack on me was a test,” she continued. “What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what’s happened to Attorney General Sessions and others is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign underway against this president, his administration, and his agenda." 
Crowley warned that forces are not only trying to delegitimize Trump, they want to personally destroy him. 
"They are out for blood," she declared..."
That this utterly-refutable-I-mean-receipts-and-everything liar is conflating her situation with that of our truth-averse president is just too on the nose -- but, then, isn't everything these days? I'm beginning to think that's how we'll be identified by future historians, assuming (perhaps unfairly) that we have any.
