Book review…”RAGE”

President Donald Trump’s former top Cabinet officials are among his harshest critics in journalist Bob Woodard’s new book “Rage,” providing some of the most brutal assessments of the commander in chief to date: “Dangerous.” “Unfit.” “No moral compass.” “Doesn’t know the difference between the truth and a lie.”

Woodward’s book paints a devastating portrait of Trump by those who worked in his inner circle. Former Defense Secretary James Mattis, former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, all hired at the start of Trump’s presidency, are quoted detailing their frustrations with Trump’s inability to focus, their alarm over his refusal to accept facts or listen to experts, their fears over the consequences of his impulsive decision-making…

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key White House coronavirus task force member and the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, is quoted telling others Trump’s leadership on the virus was “rudderless” and his “sole purpose is to get reelected.”

“Rudderless” is polite for “Incompetent”.

    “The most outrageous revelations in Bob Woodward’s book ‘Rage’ aren’t the ones you’ve heard about : It’s not just lies about coronavirus. Woodward writes of the president as a man who can’t tell fantasy from reality” https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/bob-woodward-book-rage-summary-trump-covid-tapes-b421650.html
    “Seeking refuge amid a blizzard of negative press coverage over comments he made to Bob Woodward about purposely downplaying the threat from the coronavirus in March, President Donald Trump went on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Wednesday night in hopes of explaining himself.
    It didn’t go well.”
