That was certainly less than revelatory
Anybody with a modicum of reasoned impartiality knows this based on what is publicly available information.

res ipsa loquitur.
At some point it becomes a duck.

This is a collation of what people in Trump's circle have written in tell-alls, and as such, some of that information that we all currently know about originated with them. It's certainly been corroborated, and we all generally would have a pretty good picture of what Trump's like without them, but perhaps we wouldn't have conceived of just how petty, vindictive, and cowardly Trump really is without a first person account.

Also, headline writer is misleading. Miller isn't an ex-Trump staffer. She read all these ex-Trump staff memoirs to get a big picture.

"Like many a terrible boss, Trump is fundamentally a coward. In direct contrast to the image he cultivated on The Apprentice, he rarely has the nerve to fire anyone to their face. More often than not, he uses belittling treatment and other indirect means (such as hiring Scaramucci over Spicer) to force them to quit. Or he simply announces their replacement on Twitter, as he did to Tillerson. Trump may lose his temper and berate his underlings, but exercising calm, considered, and deliberate authority is another matter."

Ok ok. If he was elected because he was a business man, I have to ask: would you work for this guy?

"You can't con an honest man"  They all thought they would get a cut of the grift but never thought they'd be out before the money came in

Because he is rich so he has the money. You don't get to decided who your boss is based on how nice they are.

Because gullible people think that if they work for and suck up to a rich person they too will become rich.

That is why trump lovers voted for him.  There is not a single one of them that is honest.  They are all amoral garbage whose evacuation - like the turds they are - would make the world a better place.

"Dangling and withdrawing goodies is a classic Trump move, one he used repeatedly on Bolton."

Probably a classic Putin move as well, one that he uses repeatedly on Trump.

All Putin has to do is smile at Trump and Trump is as happy as a dog who has been home all day seeing their human coming in the house from work.

Donald Trump has been compromised by Russia.  He's their asset.  He's a moron.  He has some kind of degenerative mental illness.  He's a racist asshole.

Did I miss anything?

Everything you said is true, but yes, you missed a lot. There's far more negative descriptors that readily apply.

You're correct. My mistake.

Usernate:

You can decide on working for a nice boss

It might not be as secure or pay as much

But you gotta ask what's better, money and material goods or working in line with someone who values line up with yours.

Depending on how desperate you are for a job.  There are some people who can write their own ticket and therefore can choose to work for non-assholes.  These people are in the minority, of course.

There are also some bosses that are so horrible that even if you really need the job it's better for your mental and physical health to quit and work at McDonalds.
