Woodward Delivers, But Does He Tell Us Much We Didn’t Already Know?

Woodward Delivers, But Does He Tell Us Much We Didn’t Already Know?

General Mattis said in a statement: "The contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

Well, we knew this was coming: Bob Woodward's new book featuring lots and lots of unflattering descriptions of Trump is resulting in yet another Trump meltdown.

He adds: "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public".

Trump took to Twitter to deny the book's claim that he had called Attorney General Jeff Sessions "mentally retarded" and "a dumb southerner".

Kelly says, "The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true".

The reporter, who said the book was based on hundreds of hours of interviews, had a brief retort: "It's going to be accurate, I promise".

Basically, through some simple questioning, Woodward gets Trump to admit that several people including Kellyanne Conway and Lindsey Graham told him about the book and that Woodward wanted to talk with him.

At the top of the list is retired four-star Army General Jack Keane, Administration and congressional officials said.

The book claims that after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad ordered chemical weapons to be used against civilians in April of previous year, Trump called Mattis and said he wanted to assassinate Assad.

In one example, former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn reportedly took a letter off Trump's desk to keep him from signing it because Cohn feared the consequences for the USA position in Asia.

Serena in US Open QF
They had combined for eight titles in Flushing Meadows, six by Serena, and each had beaten the other in a US Open final. Open semifinals, where Pliskova beat Williams in straight sets. "I won, because I believed I have a chance".

"I'm not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot", he said.

Perhaps some of the strongest rhetoric came from former FBI Director James Comey, who called Trump "morally unfit to be president", "untethered to truth", and "unethical".

Kelly allegedly would lose his temper often and said he thought Trump was "unhinged", according to the report.

The book does not inspire great confidence in the administration. Well guess what-it could be even worse! Trump has frequently threatened legal action against others he says have wronged him without following through.

According to the book, Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly raged: "He's an idiot". Team Trump thus engages in what Woodward describes as an "an administrative coup d'etat" to circumvent Trump's worst impulses (like pondering assassinating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, launching a military strike against North Korea, and pulling out of key global trade agreements).

While Trump mentioned libel laws, Sanders said on Fox News that she hadn't spoken with Trump about filing a libel lawsuit. Woodward also confirms NBC News reporting from April that Trump routinely mocked and impersonated H.R. McMaster, wholeft the White House that month. "We're doing this in order to prevent World War III", Mattis advises the benighted president when explaining why the USA maintains a military presence in South Korea. "So I have another bad book coming out".

In this reported conversation between Trump's former lawyer John Dowd and Robert Mueller, the man leading the investigation into the alleged collusion between Trump and Russian Federation in the 2016 election, the former says he is not going to sit by and let Mueller interview Trump for his investigation.

The book recounts that Mr Mattis told "close associates that the President acted like - and had the understanding of - "a fifth- or sixth-grader". I'm committed to the president, his agenda, and our country.

The Washington Post released an audio recording and transcript of a call the president made to Woodward in early August.
