Bob Woodward: 'Great Washington Denial Machine' Driven By Politics, Not Truth

In "Fear", Woodward claims Trump accused Christie of "stealing" from him while he was assisting on the presidential campaign trail, notes The Hill.

That's right, the deafening stomping sound you hear is The Big Grundle trying to walk back all those things he told Bob Woodward about how apocalyptically stupid and adolescent he found the current leader of the free world to be. "Some of the things Trump did and does jeopardize the real national security". But I wonder, since it did - coincidentally, I suppose - come out so close to when the excerpts of your book were released, what do you make of it?

Bob Woodward thinks we have a lot to worry about.

Kelly is alleged to have called Trump an "idiot" and told staffers that working in the White House was the worst job he has ever had.

Trump tweeted that "the Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources".

He said he understands the "skepticism" around unnamed sources but added that it would be almost impossible for reporters to get certain documents and testimony on the record.

Colbert's critique concerned the very last line of the book, which contains a swear word that finishes a dramatic scene, leading Colbert to conclude that Woodward buried the lede.

Speaking on Good Morning America, Don Jr. said: 'I think there are people in there that he can trust, it's just - it's a much smaller group than I would like it to be. Democrats can't stand losing.

The piece's publication has coincided with revelations from a new book by veteran journalist Bob Woodward that depicts a chaotic White House in which some aides have even removed papers from Trump's desk to prevent him from taking what they believe to be unwarranted actions.

In the case of the Korean agreement, Cohn told an associate that he removed a letter from Trump's desk to protect national security.

Earlier also in June 2017, Donald Trump had acknowledged PM Modi as his friend before Modi's first visit to United States after Trump took charge of the White House.

Woodward, on the other hand, has a very long track record of fact-based reporting. Our side is getting all the things that they're wanting to because my father's delivering on all of the promises that he made.

Colbert then points out that the "hallmark" of Trump's behaviour is: 'From day to day, he may not remember what his idea was yesterday, ' a statement with which Woodward concurred.

Woodward won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting in the Post on the Watergate case in 1973, and a second for a 2002 New York Times section on the 9/11 attacks. "You have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this", he said when asked whether any laws were broken. The Atlantic reported a year ago that within hours of the tape becoming public, Pence had made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump's place as the party's nominee. Now, at age 75, Woodward is pursuing another embattled president, this one leading a tumultuous administration and awaiting the judgment of a special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Woodward dismissed their written statements as unpersuasive.
