Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes on Trump untrue

President Trump amps up attacks on Woodward after explosive book excerpts

Which means that when he talks, you should listen.

On the topic of Woodward's book, Fear: Trump in the White House, Harrington said the op-ed "fits the same narrative that his [Woodward's] book is pushing, people working to save the country from Trump".

That's the only logical takeaway from the dogged pursuit of this goal by the "deep blue state", which reached a crescendo this week with a scathing New York Times opinion piece allegedly authored by someone close to President Trump, and the salacious excerpts from Bob Woodward's latest book, detailing what it describes as Trump's dysfunctional relationship with his inner circle.

In Fear, Woodward's 19th book, Kelly and Mattis are named as two of several senior current and former Trump administration officials who mock the president's mental capacity and express concerns about his ability to lead. He claims everything he does is the biggest, the first, the best.

Mattis told friends Trump had a tendency to go on tangents about subjects such as immigration and the news media.

According to the anonymous op-ed writer, administration officials even considered invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump. Asked whether he has tape recordings of most of the interviews, Woodward said yes. The same way he nearly always does - by name-calling on Twitter. Dems can't stand losing. Speculation will be rife in the days ahead, and finger-pointing will nearly certainly escalate, but unless Ivanka- or anyone else with a bone to pick- has real information about the identity of the writer, accusations like hers will only foment distrust, deepen division and help instigate the internal war that will slowly bring the Trump administration to its knees. All data can be deciphered however he likes.

Woodward told CBS that the most risky moment came when Trump worked on another tweet. Trump said in his tweet. "It's critical: Who is this person and why are they masking themselves in this way?"

In a credibility fight then, Trump loses. At a rally last week, he also called Woodward an "idiot".

During an interview on the "Today" show Monday morning, co-host Savannah Guthrie asked Woodward if Kelly and Mattis were "lying" when they denied their portrayals in his book.

"General Mattis, General Kelly said it's not true", Trump continued.

In the case of the Korean agreement, Cohn told an associate that he removed a letter from Trump's desk to protect national security. He seems entirely convinced that he possesses all the knowledge he needs despite never having held elected office before. Others have wondered whether staffers obstructing Trump amounts to an undemocratic attempt to override the will of U.S. voters. For Trump, a Kavanaugh confirmation would be a silver lining behind all the dark clouds that are circling his presidency. This one, despite the fact that he is now admittedly under attack from within, is just more of the same.

Woodward's book reinforces all of that.

"It happens frequently", Woodward said. In short: Woodward is not easily dismissed.
