Woodward book reveals 'crazytown' Trump White House

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissed the book, saying it was full of false stories from unhappy former employees "to make the President look bad".

Current Chief of Staff John Kelly told colleagues Trump is "unhinged" and "an idiot", according to Woodward.

Of course Trump has had awful things to say about Barack Obama, but it's not like he called him a "weak d**k" in the debates like he reportedly did in private. Haley said she'd been in all the conversations about responding to the Syrian attack and "I have not once ever heard the president talk about assassinating Assad". "This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes".

Other topics covered in the book, scheduled for a September 11 release, include Trump's paranoia, and his often immature handling of worldwide conflicts like the North Korean nuclear threat (i.e. calling Kim Jong-un a "little rocket man"). The Washington Post, where Woodward is an associate editor, reported Tuesday on the book, revealing some of the highlights.

'He's an idiot. It is pointless to try and convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails.

Donald Trump's supporters will say, not without cause, that Woodward epitomises the Washington establishment their man is fighting against.

White House officials have been removing sensitive papers from US President Donald Trump's desk so that he can not see or sign them, an exceptional "administrative coup d'état" reflecting internal fears over the stability of the commander-in-chief, according to a book slated for publication this month.

"The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true, in fact it's exactly the opposite", said Kelly, adding that he has "an incredibly candid and strong relationship" with Trump.

The book says Trump's former lawyer in the Russia probe, John Dowd, doubted the president's ability to avoid perjuring himself should he be interviewed in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference and potential coordination with Trump's campaign. But, according to Woodward, Trump was not finished.

Russia had Trump ‘over a barrel’, claims former British spy
Ohr's relationship with his wife and his interactions with Steele tie him loosely to the Russian Federation investigation. He has also singled out Bruce Ohr , saying he was a "disgrace" and that he would revoke his security clearance.

"This guy is mentally retarded", the President continued. "He's this dumb Southerner", Trump reportedly told Porter about Sessions.

'He couldn't even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama'.

The book also claims Trump wanted to "kill" Syrian President Bashar al-Assad earlier this year after he defied the US leader by again using chemical weapons.

"I wouldn't let him see it".

That being said, the famed journalist claims they are done being silent about such a serious topic.

And, after having had to explain to Trump in January that the USA must keep forces in South Korea "to prevent World War III", Mattis told colleagues that Trump had the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader" - a 10- or 11-year-old child. "Well, I assume that means it's going to be a negative book", he said. John McCain (R-Ariz.). He falsely suggested that the former Navy pilot had been a coward for taking early release from a prisoner-of-war camp in Vietnam because of his father's military rank and leaving others behind. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis had to gently explain to Trump that "you've got it reversed".

Dowd denied the accuracy of Woodward's reporting in single-word emails to the Washington Examiner.

"We have begun BUILDING THE WALL".

Mueller has asked the White House for access to Trump, and administration officials have negotiated for months over how that might happen. "Democrats want OPEN BORDERS which equals MASSIVE CRIME". "I'll never be a staffer".
