    Remember the revealing op-ed that came out last year by a insider in Don's WH who it appears is/was a senior staff member? He/she has a new book coming out. If you are concerned about what the op-ed said perhaps you shouldn't read these excerpts cuz they make it clear things have become worse.

    Because this material is excruciatingly humiliating for the Idiot-in-Chief and by extension The Following, it will be labeled fake. You can almost always measure the accuracy of what is reported by watching the vehemence of the attacks on it and on who reported it. IOW, expect an epic tweet storm.

    Anonymous author writes Trump's decision-making is eroding over time

    We already know everything we need to know from the genius who blew the whistle on himself, Schiff, and the rest of the enemies of the US:

    I wrote this yesterday on another thread.

    "Don is not a serious man, not an intellectual, does not dive deeply in to policy analysis, does not surround himself with people who challenge his views, does not read, and famously eschews national security briefings unless they are presented in cartoon form."

    Little did I know the excerpts I've seen from the book confirm it.......and worse. All of Baby Donald's briefing have to be dumbed down since he has a short attention span and no interest in detail.

    Ahh a book from ANONYMOUS author.
    That's some credibility right there!
    I'm going to buy it and put it in the fiction section of my library along with Harry Potter and lord of the rings

    Although the book apparently offers more granular detail, it essentially covers material we already knew about. The impulsiveness, lack of attention to detail, having briefings reduced to simplified content on only one subject cuz that's all Don can handle.

    Don't be like Lindsey. Don't bury your head in the sand when faced with the reality of just how unfit this clown is to be prez. It's your obligation as a citizen to consider it's all true..........though I understand your desire to not deal with it.

    That would be misquoting Lindsey. He said he would not read the DEMOCRATIC transcript.

    Just remember that about everything Deep Throat said about Nixon turned out to be true - anonymity does not = liar.

    The other thing to consider is despite the frequent use of the fake news meme the vast, vast majority of the reporting on Baby Donald has been spot on.

    There is no "Democratic Transcript. There is only the transcriber's transcript. I find it amazing how easily Graham could be bought. Two rounds of golf and he rolls over like an obedient puppy wanting his belly scratched. Trump is either a master manipulator or the devil incarnate.

    It is the transcript which the democrats have. Whether it is the only or correct transcript is an open question based on Adam Shiff's Trump quote.

    Even assuming all that's true then it doesn't mean anything.

    The author has direct quotes from the Divider-in-Chief in the book so he/she has first person access to meetings with Don. The implication from the op-ed that staff is able to control Don has apparently eroded as he has replaced people like Mattis and Kelly with spineless yes men.

    Someone, we don't know who, put their opinion in writing and people are doing cartwheels and handstands. Bring out the band and let's have a parade.

    Anonymous in a media source (e.g. Deep Throat) is understandable and necessary. It is like the protection of a whistleblower and critical to reportage. Anonymous in an author is not my cup of tea. I find it makes the book non-credible.

    Whistleblower’s Lawyer Sends WH Cease And Desist, Cites Endangerment Of Client
    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/whistleblower-lawyer-cease-and-desist

    The whistleblower’s lawyer sent the White House a cease and desist letter Thursday, warning that the President’s constant stream of vitriol is putting his client in “physical danger.”

    “I am writing to respectfully request that you counsel your client on the legal and ethical peril in which he is placing himself should anyone be physically harmed as a result of his, or his surrogates’, behavior,” attorney Andrew Bakaj wrote to White House counsel Pat Cipollone in a letter obtained by CNN.

    "The author — who first captured attention in 2018 as the unidentified author of a New York Times opinion column — describes Trump careening from one self-inflicted crisis to the next, “like a twelve-year-old in an air traffic control tower, pushing the buttons of government indiscriminately, indifferent to the planes skidding across the runway and the flights frantically diverting away from the airport.”

    Trump has proven that. There is a reason that Russia has designated him as a UI.

    A former (or current) senior staff member who obviously knows of what he/she speaks.

    Or..................you can believe what Trump says.............even though he is a liar. To believe Don you have to believe dozens and dozens of people who have knowledge of what goes on in the admin are all lying.

    I think most citizens would prefer Trump to go away.

    Speaking of kids and Trump. I saw a video recently of a mountain climbing group easily scaling a reproduced portion of Trump's big beautiful fence. Even an eight year old girl made it over with ease.

    It began when Trump said the best mountain climbers in the world could not scale it. They took it as a challenge and proved him wrong.
