Summary Rage By Bob WoodwardDonald Trump has made an inordinate number of mistakes since assuming the
presidency however onehowever one his most egregious was agreeing to an eighteen mistakes since assuming the presidency however one of his most egregious was agreeing to an eighteen over nine session interview with author Bob Woodward The Washington Post investigative Zack (Areion Fury MC reporter had previously written a chronicle of Trump s first two years in office entitled FEAR which was not very flattering toward the president Trump a firm believer in his own powers of persuasion was out of his league assuming if he developed a personalelationship with Woodward that his new book would praise the president and be an asset in the current presidential campaign The esult has been Woodward s latest work RAGE which was once again even less flattering toward Mr TrumpWoodward s effort is somewhat ironic in that his eporting during the Watergate crisis again even less flattering toward Mr TrumpWoodward s effort is somewhat ironic in that his ContamiNation reporting during the Watergate crisis the early 1970s helpedemove Richard M Nixon from office Now almost fifty years later Woodward has written a book supported by audiotapes of his interviews with the president that provides evidence for the numerous falsehoods that president has engaged in since the book s Taxi ins Glück release As a historian I find it than a coincidence that aeporter as thorough as Woodward is involved in another pursuit of a lawless president involving tape ecordingsThe book itself presents countless examples of Trump s lies to the American people over a number of important issues that include his downplaying the coronavirus his elationship with and the actions of North Korean leader Kim Jun Un his approach to Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas racism and white nationalism and of course his impeachment Trump comes across as a liar a petty vengeful individual a self absorbed person who appears devoid of human decency who exhibits little or no empathy in his approach to a pandemic hurricanes and the wildfires out westFrom the outset Woodward pulls no punches inecounting Trump s attitude toward Covet 19 Trump freely admits though he has since denied that he downplayed the effects of the virus and its possible impact on the American people As early as January 28 2020 Trump was warned by Robert O Brien the National Security advisor that this is going to be the The Magic Rolling Pin roughest thing you face Matt Pottinger the Deputy NSC advisoreaffirmed what O Brien had stated and argued that after speaking with his Chinese sources concluded don t think SARS 2003 think influenza pandemic 1918 On February 7th Trump told Woodward that I think that it goes away in two months with heatyou know as it gets hotter that tends to kill the virus You know you hope Trump described the virus as deadly and it goes through the air At the same time as he expressed these fears in private Trump publicly Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, reassured the American people that there was nothing to worry about and he had everything under control There is noeason to discuss the impact of Trump s attitude and actions But it cannot be denied that while over 200000 people have died Trump has not carried out his constitutional duties to protect and defend the American peopleThe book presents a plethora of examples of Trump s malfeasance in office Each example is supported by excellent sourcing a Woodward trademark and we have audio tapes to support what the narrative purports One must keep in mind that Woodward has been chronicling presidential administrations for close to fifty years that s over twenty percent of all presidents have been subject to Woodward s incisive pen In all that time there has been little if any hint of emotion on his part in dealing with his subject matter However in the current instance that emotional current is present Trump Not Without a Fight realized that the first draft of history of any administration during the last five decades has been written by Woodward and Trump wanted to influence it But Woodward aware of Trump s obsession with the book still is the truth teller and if one turns to the last few pages of the narrative his personaleaction is based on Trump s constant denials and absence of Garden Bouquets and Beyond responsibility as he has lied to the American people Woodward concludes that Trump was the wrong man for the job of president because of the overwhelming evidence that the president has no sense ofeason order guidance and morality and his administration suffers from an organizational sickness and Trump a personal sickness forcing Woodward to The Unseen Wonder reach no other conclusionIneaching this judgement Woodward has examined the most important aspects of the Trump administration His personal The Management Bible relationships with James Mattis John Kelly Dan Coates Rex Tillerson and numerous others are all explored and it is interesting as information about them haseached the public with the publication of RAGE none of these individuals has come forth to dispute what Woodward has written Areas of concern include the Zu schnell relationship with Kim Jun Un where the North Korean leader after a legitimate war scare aselated by Mattis meets with Trump and achieves everything that he sought particularly Sleepless (Bird of Stone, recognition by the United States with Washingtoneceiving little or nothing in eturn The situation in Syria is documented as Trump as An unprecedented and intimate tour de force of original eporting on the Trump presidency from Bob Woodward Rage goes behind the scenes like never before with stunning new details about early national security decisions and operations and Trump’s moves as he faces a global pandemic economic disaster and acial unrestWoodward the #1 internationally bestselling author of 13 #1 bestsellers including Fear Trump in the White House shows Trump up close in his entirety before the 2020 presidential elec. Favor to another of his authoritarian buddies convinced Trump to withdraw and or eposition US troops in Syria in order buddies convinced Trump to withdraw and or eposition US troops in Syria in order the Turkish military to go after the Kurds our ally for over a decade and our main partner against ISIS Trump s attitude toward NATO and allies in general is depicted and an obvious cause for concern as Trump s transactional nature is such that he does not accept the American need for allies with the attitude that there is little they can do for America and that they do not carry their own military and financial weight Mattis wondered what made Trump think anyone could make it alone in the world A country always needs allies just examine history but since Trump does not Yummy Supper read and has no sense or knowledge of history this intellectual exercise is superfluousWhat separates Woodward s work from others is the detail that he presents after assiduousesearch A prime example are the letters between Trump and Kim Jun Un seemingly declaring an uncomfortable bromance These letters present insights into the minds of both men and go a long way in explaining why to this day nothing of major importance has been accomplished The conversations between President Xi and Trump are eye opening as and it is clear the Chinese stonewalled but in an earlier conversation Trump asked Xi to help him get eelected The commentary of Coates and Mattis is important since neither has gone public with their evaluations and experiences with Trump but for the first time we see their angst over this presidency the damage he has caused and their fears for the futureWoodward s discussion of the Mueller Report and impeachment is fair and well thought out His conclusions are interesting in that he argues that it was Ron Rosenstein s investigation and eport Deep Listening rather than Mueller The fact that there was no John Dean type with a smoking gun like Watergate was a majoreason that Trump seems to have gotten away with colluding with Russia though the Mueller Report did not exonerate him despite what Attorney General Bill Barr stated in his four page summary of the eport Mueller was limited in what appeared to be an expansive investigation Mueller himself as well as his staff of lawyers and investigators could not stray too far for fear of being fired which Rosenstein made clear In the end Trump weathered the greatest threat to his presidency to that point which certainly emboldened him It is no accident that Trump s machinations with Ukraine to smear Joe Biden through his son Hunter began almost simultaneously to the end of the Mueller investigationTrump s disparagement of the intelligence community is on full display and the true nature of Vice President Pence is apparent as he throws his former close friend Dan Coates under the bus with his fawning over the president Be it Putin Xi Erdogan Covid 19 the threat of White supremacists Trump when he actually eads his daily briefing always finds fault with the CIA FBI and a myriad of other intelligence agencies It caused Coates to state to him a lie is not a lie Its just what he thinks He doesn t know the difference between truth and a lie Intelligence had to conform to Trump s prejudices and beliefs if not they were Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature rejected outrightAt times it seems as if Woodward is banging his head against the wall as he tries toeason with Trump ie his uestioning of Trump over the Ukrainian matter that led to his impeachment For Trump his perfect phone call and transcript were enough and he did not grasp the concept that a president cannot shake down a foreign leader to acuire dirt on a political opponent Other conversations would epeatedly produce a Trumpian iff dealing with past disparagement and feelings and get nowhere But I admire Woodward for tryingWoodward Trajan relies heavily on interviews with a number of important former administration officials which heefuses to name but their identity comes out in the narrative Their frustration and fear of Trump is warranted based on their experiences Nothing was dangerous than the Bunnys Book Club Goes to School reaction to Covid 19 and the policies or lack thereof of the administration Woodward covers the full expanse of Trump s tenure in office but it is hisesponse and lies to the American people are the most important aspect of the book A great deal of what Woodward covers has been mined by others but in the The Peculiar Pig realm of Covid 19 iteflects how dangerous Trump is for the health of American people as even Trump Cherry Ingram realized as early as February 7 2020 ineference to Covid 19 when he said there s dynamite behind every door at the same time he was playing down the coming pandemic and lying to the American people by arguing the virus would go away on its own at a time when there was only twelve cases But as we know the virus proliferated and Trump obfuscated as he The Mermaids Shoes remarked that he always played downI still like playing it down because I don t want to create panic In the end he said I don t take anyesponsibility at all Woodward treats the
