The latest "fly on the wall in the White House book"
by Bob Woodward is about to be released.

WaPo have started publishing extracts ...
Well, we all know that Trump is a bit excentric, but even so !

A part from aides backtabbing and jostling for influence, we discover that :

After the chemical weapons attack in Syria,
Trump wanted to assassinate Bashar al-Assad.
'“Let’s fùcking kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the fùcking lot of them.”)

Staffers, so worried that Trump's impulsiveness will lead to a national
or even international disaster, that they've taken to
removing offical papers from his desk so that he won't see or sign them !

On the Mueller investigations,
John Dowd was so convinced that President Trump would commit perjury
that on Jan. 27, Dowd did a practice session to prove his point



... In the White House residence, Dowd peppered Trump with questions about the Russia investigation, provoking stumbles, contradictions and lies until the president eventually lost his cool.

“This thing’s a goddamn hoax,” Trump erupted at the start of a 30-minute rant that finished with him saying, “I don’t really want to testify.”



That's pretty standard, however, the kicker is here :


On March 5, Dowd and Trump attorney Jay Sekulow met in Mueller’s office with the special counsel and his deputy, James Quarles, where Dowd and Sekulow reenacted Trump’s January practice session.

Dowd then explained to Mueller and Quarles why he was trying to keep the president from testifying:
“I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot. And you publish that transcript, because everything leaks in Washington, and the guys overseas are going to say, ‘I told you he was an idiot. I told you he was a goddamn dumbbell. What are we dealing with this idiot for?’ ”

“John, I understand,” Mueller replied, according to Woodward.

Later that month, Dowd told Trump: “Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit.”

... snip ...

“I’ll be a real good witness,” Trump told Dowd, according to Woodward.
“You are not a good witness,” Dowd replied. “Mr. President, I’m afraid I just can’t help you.”

The next morning, Dowd resigned.

Mueller already has the goods on Trump !

Working in the White House is nothing more than a high-profile babysitting gig at this point.

Just making sure the kid don’t break anything.

At this point, I wonder which staff members will be drained from the swamp. I'll bet Kelly bails quick.

I actually feel sorry for Sarah H. Sanders.

People can say things, but it doesn't make it true. This has to be like the 5th book released that was going to be the end of Trump, but I'm yet to see it.

From your source:



Woodward writes that his book is drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand participants and witnesses that were conducted on “deep background,” meaning the information could be used but he would not reveal who provided it. His account is also drawn from meeting notes, personal diaries and government documents.


So the same old crap but a different day. I'm sure Amazon will make his book very noticeable on their site for the extracts. You know, the same companies that absolutely hate Trump.

Reading through the phone transcript between Trump and Woodward,
It could be Kellyanne Conway's turn next

She didn't relay to Trump that Woodward asked her for face time with him

What kind of fools would even give Woodward access to top level WH staff and allow the interviews.

Heads will roll, believe me....!!! Trump must be devastated to know that he didn't even have the loyalty and support of his closest advisers.

Trump: But are you naming names? Or do you just say sources?

BW: Yeah, well, it names real incidents, so . ..

Trump: No, but do you name sources? I mean, are you naming the people, or just say, people have said?

BW: I say, at 2:00 on this day, the following happened, and everyone who’s there, including yourself, is quoted. And I’m sorry I didn’t get to ask you about these . ..

Trump: I mean, you do know I’m doing a great job for the country. You do know that NATO now is going to pay billions and billions of dollars more, as an example, than anybody thought possible, that other presidents were unable to get more? And it was heading downward. You do know all of the things I’ve done and things that I’m doing? I’m in the process of making some of the greatest trade deals ever to be made. You do understand that stuff? I mean, I hope.


Transcript: Phone call between President Trump and journalist Bob Woodward

If Trump is ok with no names,
his fanboys should be too

Anyhow, as it is, we can all guess who spilled the beans

Are you comfortable with this style of journalism being the norm? Moreover would you consider it press?

When this style of journalism is was used on Clinton, the conservatives cheered. Stained blue dress, remember? The Kennedy unfaithfulness...

I surmise it is the norm....

I'm okay with it,
So's Trump

What do you think about this exchange ?


Dowd then explained to Mueller and Quarles why he was trying to keep the president from testifying:

I would say the same thing if the nations top information analyst told me what they told him.

The problem is not the reaction but the information put forth being completely one sided.

You are aware that the dress and the stain were actual evidence, right?




the conservatives cheered.


Only conservatives?

Fair enough.

Just trying to gauge integrity here.

Sadly for the Democrats this will only feed their TDS and their hate.

It won't "take Trump down" since all "sources" are anonymous and probably most statements are lies.

It won't make any Trump supporter leave his side.

It's just more of the same crap.

But hey... Keep'em coming!

Mattis said Trump had the understanding of ‘a fifth or sixth-grader’


This should be obvious to anyone who has observed him speak. He knows nothing about our government, or American history. Even Obama said the presidency is "on the job training", but trump starts out in grade K.

Here are some more excerpts from the book if anyone is interested.

www2.philly.com...

From Kellly same link.


It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying about Trump in Woodward's new 448-page book, Fear: Trump in the White House. Kelly added, "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."

Let me know when they release the sources of this info if ever. Until then, I don't believe the book. But hey, I'm one of those guys thats been around long enough for the days when ATS acknowledged people create these stories to sell books.
