President Donald Trump has dismissed a new book by investigative journalist Bob Woodward as a politically motivated “con of the public”.
Woodward’s book, titled “Fear”, was written after hundreds of hours of interviews with past and present key players in the U.S. administration.
Some of the book’s main revelations include:
- Woodward reports the White House chief of staff John Kelly described the president to other aides as an “idiot” and complained that they were in “Crazytown”.
- Woodward also quotes Trump describing his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, of being “mentally retarded”. In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump denied ever using such language to describe anyone.
The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded” and “a dumb southerner.” I said NEITHER, never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff, and being a southerner is a GREAT thing. He made this up to divide!
Have you seen any other revelations from “Fear” reported elsewhere?
