New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman became a household name for her coverage of former President Donald Trump's time in the White House, breaking some of the most defining stories of his tenure there.
In fact, Haberman's access to the Trump administration has even generated controversy in itself, with some in media accusing her of practicing "access journalism" and hobnobbing with the likes of presumed sources like Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
So it's safe to say that few civilians knew the inner workings of the Trump administration in more detail than Haberman.
This week, Trump issued a bizarre statement, one of many criticizing the Biden administration for a botched withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan.
"First you bring out all of the American citizens. Then you bring out ALL equipment. Then you bomb the bases into smithereens—AND THEN YOU BRING OUT THE MILITARY. You don't do it in reverse order like Biden and our woke Generals did.
No chaos, no death—they wouldn't even know we left!"
Haberman responded with a wry observation.
Like Haberman, people saw flaws in Trump's ideal sequence of events.
The statement prompted a range of observations.
