The long-esteemed reporter Bob Woodward’s book Fear, a Donald Trump tell-all, is on the eve of its release. The journalist taped all of his conversations to verify his work was accurate. Then, the president reacted like an enraged bull in the Oval Office, trying to gore Woodward’s credibility to death.
In an early more tweet, Trump wrote that many say the quotes in the book are “fiction”:
‘The Woodward book is a Joke – just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources. Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction. Dems can’t stand losing. I’ll write the real book!’
First Lady Melania Trump warned the U.S. that her husband always hits back 10 times harder than those he perceives have injured him. In a second tweet, the president wrote that his administration was a “smooth running machine:”
‘The White House is a “smooth running machine.” We are making some of the biggest and most important deals in our country’s history – with many more to come! The Dems are going crazy!’
A pattern has been emerging. Each new book adds to that pattern of a president who has been erratic, given to rages, and is actually incompetent. Now, the Donald wants to write his own book to contradict Woodward’s aptly titled book.
Why should this concern the American people? First, the Republican party has been complicit in keeping an unfit man in the White House in order the achieve its own agenda and members of Congress’ jobs.
Second, it raises questions about how the voters can change this dire situation. Last, it motivates people to get out and do what they can to take the air out of Trump’s presidency, if only by voting.
