‘Crazytown’

CBS News: “Bob Woodward’s new book ‘Fear,’ scheduled to be released later in September, reveals vivid accounts of dysfunction behind the scenes in the Trump White House.”

“Woodward describes a ‘nervous breakdown’ within the administration, and quotes senior Trump staffers expressing negative views of their boss.”

“Defense Secretary Jim Mattis reportedly told associates that Mr. Trump had the behavior and the understanding of ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.’ Current Chief of Staff John Kelly said in a meeting that Mr. Trump was an ‘idiot’ and told fellow staff members, ‘He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.'”

“Other revelations include Mr. Trump’s belief that making a speech where he condemned neo-Nazis after the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 was ‘the biggest f***ing mistake I’ve ever made.'”

“The book [also] recounts instances where the White House staff prevented Mr. Trump from taking some actions. Former economic adviser Gary Cohn reportedly ‘stole a letter off Trump’s desk’ that would have had the United States formally leave a trade deal with South Korea.”
