President Donald J. Trump’s boast that he only hires the best people has blown up in his face, what with all the departures, scandals, investigations, indictments and guilty pleas besetting the administration. (The departures alone have now spilled over into a third bingo card.)
Now, just when you thought things couldn’t get any kookier, there comes this bizarre story involving former Trump aides Jason Miller and A.J. Delgado. The ex-lovers are involved in a nasty child custody fight that involves an adulterous affair, an out-of-wedlock baby, allegations of sexual and physical abuse, and — wait for it — the Apollo moon landings.
Yes, you read that right. The Apollo missions are a point of contention in this sorry mess. Here’s what Delgado alleges in a court document:
Father once told Mother he believes the moon landing was staged. When Mother asked how he could possibly believe such, he said he learned it from spending time with Ted Cruz’s team, noting something about the Houston connection.
Miller had worked on Cruz’s presidential campaign before the Texas senator ended it. He and Delgado then worked for Trump’s presidential bid, where they had the affair.
Miller, who resigned as Trump’s campaign spokesman after all this became public, denies it all and accuses Delgado of spreading “false and salacious accusations” against him.
For the record, NASA has said the similar things about the fake moon landing claims.
