If Ayn Rand wrote The Fountainhead today Pope Francis would be Pope Ellsworth:

He made it a matter not of individual guilt, but of collective guilt, societal guilt, something we all are part of and must atone for. This is a big tenet of liberation theology and similar lines of lefty thought. Society is guilty.​

Pope Francis collectivizes the guilt

Ellsworth Toohey​
Ellsworth Toohey is an influential columnist and architectural critic, whose praise or censure can make or break an architect’s career. He recognizes that Peter Keating is, at best, a mediocrity, while Howard Roark is an innovative genius. So why does Toohey do everything in his power to boost Keating’s career while plotting and scheming to destroy Roark’s?​
An arch-exponent of the morality of altruism, Toohey preaches self-sacrifice and service to others at every opportunity. What does that have to do with architecture — or with literature, theater or other artistic fields with which Toohey also concerns himself?​
By the end of The Fountainhead, you’ll discover what it is that Toohey is really after, and understand why he is Ayn Rand’s embodiment of collectivism “not in politics, but in man’s soul.”​

Whether or not there is a saboteur in the White House is unimportant. Ellesworth Toohey wrote that NY Times op-ed and the NYT published it.
El Rushbo nailed it:

Limbaugh suspects N.Y. Times made up Trump editorial​

The NY Times op-ed was like dropping surrender leaflets on an enemy city during a war. There is one problem with that battle strategy. The NYT already lost the war. On the other hand, Trump’s Twitter leaflets tell the NYT to surrender before they are wiped out.
