NeverTrumper Erick Erickson crawls out from under his rock: I Know One of the Sources

I would say Erick Erickson, a devout NeverTrumper, and Rush Limbaugh wannabe is full of bull excrement. 
This pathetic attention grab that can never be authenticated speaks for itself.  Are we supposed to be impresses that Erickson claims to know one of the sources for WaPo's hit job on Donald Trump as if Erickson somehow is equivalent to the burning bush?  Sorry, that dog doesn't hunt, it's sleeping under the porch while Erickson is in the kitchen cooking up some Brownies.   

Erick Erickson writing for The Resurgent, I tend to take these stories about the President with a grain of salt. We have seen key details of a number of salacious stories retracted within 48 hours. The media hates the President so much that they’ll run a negative story about him without very much provocation. Anti-Trump sources embedded within the administration in the career civil service, etc. will leak to the press and confirmation bias sets in.
What sets this story apart for me, at least, is that I know one of the sources. And the source is solidly supportive of President Trump, or at least has been and was during Campaign 2016. But the President will not take any internal criticism, no matter how politely it is given. He does not want advice, cannot be corrected, and is too insecure to see any constructive feedback as anything other than an attack.

So some of the sources are left with no other option but to go to the media, leak the story, and hope that the intense blowback gives the President a swift kick in the butt.
