Trump Calls New Book by Watergate Reporter a 'Con'

In a small meeting, Kelly reportedly said of Trump: "He's an idiot". Trump later says Conway "should've come to me". "He's this dumb Southerner", Trump reportedly told Porter about Sessions. The freaky silence suggests that even if Woodward's account is not fully accurate, this White House is too dysfunctional and disorganized to quickly rebut explosive, firsthand claims of incompetence on two of the country's biggest media platforms.

According to Woodward's reporting, Trump stumbles and contradicts himself during the exercise and Dowd is convinced that Trump should never sit down with Justice Department investigators.

BW: She transcribed all the tapes because, with permission, I taped people for hundreds of hours. "Don't testify. It's either that or an orange jumpsuit", he reportedly said.

"John, I understand", Mueller replied, according to Woodward, but insisted, "I need the president's testimony".

The White House pushed back hard Tuesday against the extremely unflattering portrayal of President Trump in legendary journalist Bob Woodward's scathing new book about the Trump administration.

"When you put a snake and a rat and a falcon and a rabbit and a shark and a seal in a zoo without walls, things start getting nasty and bloody", Priebus said.

He also claims that two of the people most close to the president, Chief of Staff John Kelly, as well as the Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, are sick and exhausted of Trump's behavior.

And that seems unlikely to change with the September 11 publication by Simon & Schuster of Fear: Trump in the White House, a look at the current President and his administration from the legendary journalist and All the President's Men co-author.

"I never spoke to him", Trump told The Daily Caller. The Washington Post published excerpts earlier Tuesday. Lindsay Graham of SC, to put in a good word for him as well.

Trump did not speak to Woodward until after the book's manuscript was completed.

Ohio State jumps Wisconsin, Michigan drops in AP top 25
In total, the SEC has seven of its 14 teams in the AP Top 25, with three SEC West teams in the top 11. The Buckeyes are just four points ahead of the Badgers and only nine points ahead of No. 6 Oklahoma.

"I would've loved to have spoken to you", Trump said. "I would have taken that resignation letter and shoved it up his ass six different times", Kelly told Cohn.

The gathering quickly went awry, however, when Trump made a decision to unload on his generals for attempting to discuss Afghanistan strategy. The national security team then set about developing options for a conventional air strike.

Woodward describes "an administrative coup d'etat" and a "nervous breakdown" of the executive branch, with senior aides conspiring to pluck official papers from the president's desk so he couldn't see or sign them.

After that meeting, according to Woodward, Mattis said to colleagues that Trump had the understanding "a fifth- or sixth-grader" - a 10- or 11-year-old child.

Kelly also questioned the president's ability intelligence, according to Woodward.

Trump denied that top aides, including former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, took papers from his desk to keep him from pulling out of NAFTA and a trade deal with South Korea. "He's gone off the rails", Kelly was quoted in the book as saying. "You know I'm very open to you".

'The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true, ' he said in a statement.

Breitbart News exclusively reported that Mattis had actually told senators that the summit was one of the "most productive" he had ever attended.

According to the book, Trump told Mattis that he wanted to have Assad assassinated after the Syrian president launched a chemical attack on civilians in April 2017.

"Let's [expletive] kill him". There's a lot to go over-too much to include here without plagiarizing WaPo-but the "too long, didn't read" (tl;dr) of what we know is that what we know is sure to make President Mad Online, well, mad online.
