Guessing who wrote the piece has become one of Washington D.C.'s favorite new board games.
The New York Times opinion piece describes the president as "impetuous, adversary, petty and ineffective" and says that the author is part of an organized "resistance" whose goal is "to preserve our democratic institutions while they are frustrated."
