Bannon believes they have exposed Trump to the Russia probe that could topple his presidency and that Trump would be able to accomplish more without them. This, he noted, led him to become president on the very first try, which may qualify as "genius", most "stable genius" at that, he said. Plugged-in journalists blessed with advance copies had highlighted passages and tweeted photos of page after page.
From the start, the administration struggled to find highly qualified candidates across the administration, largely owing to the president's unpopularity with the Washington political class. A spate of nominees for sub-Cabinet jobs and judicial appointments have been forced to back out over ethics concerns or because they were so unqualified even Republican lawmakers objected to their appointments.
Trump took to Twitter late on Friday to renew his attacks on Wolff, and on his former top aide Steve Bannon who was quoted in the book.
"He said he interviewed me for three hours in the White House".
He then slammed Ross, who will now work as an investigative correspondent working on long-term projects. Bill Clinton wasn't responsible for the dot com boom that came along as baby boomers were entering their peak earning years and the Cold War was over. Worse, given those very characteristics, that he's quite possibly not mentally competent to perform his duties.
According to the book, the President is regarded as an "idiot" by treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and former chief of staff Reince Priebus. I absolutely spoke to the president.
Copies were reportedly flying off the shelves in Washington, D.C., while Mankato's River Hills Mall Barnes & Noble was still awaiting its shipment of "Fire and Fury".
That Trump quickly responded by seeking a cease-and-desist order to prohibit the book's publication is consistent with the behavioral tendencies mentioned above. Some departures are expected to come from senior ranks the staff churn that makes headlines but more are likely among the lesser-known officials who help to keep the White House and Cabinet agencies running.
Faced with a growing backlash, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist released a statement Sunday reaffirming his support for the commander in chief and praising Trump's eldest son as "both a patriot and a good man". Why speak so candidly and put such trust in Wolff, a writer who has previously been accused of giving the cold shoulder to facts to paint compelling scenes that may or may not be based on reality? Wolff suggested that even the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and daughter, Ivanka Trump, are hardly demonstrating any faith. Would the two people in the back of the room who have not used these words to describe the president please raise your hand? Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist.
The book claims that for "Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, the president was an 'idiot.' For Gary Cohn, he was 'dumb as shit.' For H.R. McMaster, he was a 'dope.' The list went on". But all but one of the lawmakers she briefed are Democrats.
Please note: This is a commentary piece.
Steve Bannon is trying to make amends.
The South Portland Public Library, according to the state's Minerva online library site, was the only library in the state to have a copy Friday. He told BBC radio in an interview that it's a "very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect". Nixon lied himself right out of office.
"I spoke to people who spoke to the president on a daily, sometime minute-by-minute basis".
I mean, Trump has been called a "child" more times in the last year than about 97 per cent of the world's actual children.
"Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend - Trump might actually win - seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost".
