To stay out of prison.  That's his ONLY reason.

ISIS. Healthcare. Troops out of AF and IQ. Drain swamp. Wall. Infrastructure.

The only promises that Trump has fulfilled are the ones that hurt people. He's got real work left to do.

/preferably on a chain gang

So he can die in office, avoid indictment and prosecution and be celebrated as the President who Made America Great Again. Then we are stuck with Pence and our only hope is that the Democrats take the Senate.

Does he mean those arms deals with countries that never cared one way or another about Israel, anyway?

1. He is the subject of the book.
2. If the book is boring, perhaps the cause is see point 1.
3. He didn't read it anyway so this entire exercise is complete bullshiat.

I know right, nobody ever gives me the credit I deserve for the treaty I helped Canada and New Zealand find an ever lasting peace. Who would have thought you could get two nations that never fought each other to sign a peace deal. It boggles the mind I tell you.

I'm about 200 pages into it and it's exactly what you expect from Woodward: Clean, clear writing, attention to important details, thorough sourcing (unlike "Fear," most of the primary sources are on the record), and a brisk pace. It's a pretty excellent look inside the chaotic nature of the Trump White House.

My only knock is that the inside flap and current PR focuses on the Covid-19 stuff, which might be good for clicks/sales, but in truth the book is about his whole tenure in office. It picks up right where Fear left off.

No, nothing in it is going to SURPRISE anyone who has been paying attention, but to have it clearly laid out through credible sources, as told to a credible journalist, and done in a way that is not gossipy or salacious, really brings it home.

I'm still not convinced he held off on his scoop with Trump down-playing the severity of covid 19, just so he could sell his book though. I listened to him on an interview, and he doesn't appear shady... he couldn't just say "I held off a few months on this information so I could sell the book". He just hemmed and hawed about confirming facts and making sure what he heard was really, really, really true.... pffff.

No. The item pictured is stable and potentially useful.

Watched a Fox interview with Woodward, the new talking points are out.

"Do you think it does a disservice to the President that you didn't include his historic peace treaty in your book?"

"Well, the President did ask me why I didn't include it and I explained that the book had already gone to press 3 weeks ago"

He did say the plan was a positive.

The second talking point is to praise the Cadet for letting Woodward have access because he is such a busy man and no other president would do that.

Woodward was quite insistent that the after talking with the Cadet the evidence points to nothing else than he is not qualified to be leading this country.

In fact, three times he made Dana "what's a Cuban Missile Crisis?" Perino listen to his assessment and then reminded her, with her own quote, that she wouldn't work for the Cadet because he likes to blindside his staff.

She shot back "I never sought the job" to which Woodward said "I know, your statement was that you wouldn't  volunteer because of how he treats his staff....which was a wise decision on your part"

It was kinda brutal

The Middle East Deal?  The one where countries that never had hostile relations announce that they will have "normalized" relations,and which donnie announced would be good customers for US-made advanced weapons?

Yeah, some deal, donnie.

I think the criticism has been unwarranted. It wasn't really a scoop in that it didn't reveal anything we didn't already know, it simply confirmed what we were already aware of. Everyone with any sense could see clearly what Trump was doing and knew why he was doing it. Woodward merely confirmed that Trump knew exactly what he was doing. Which, again, shouldn't surprise anyone.

It was a confirmation more than a revelation.

I don't think knowing earlier would have changed Trump's actions one iota. If anything, he'd have dug in and doubled down, which is exactly what he's doing now by more openly saying masks don't work, we should never have done shutdowns, etc.

Plus when you catch someone being dishonest, you've got to give them enough rope to hang themselves before you reveal it, otherwise they have way too much wiggle room to slink out of the noose.

"I have done so much so quickly"

I agree with this description of his Presidency. He has done a lot. A lot a lot. Much of it at a lightning pace. It's all terrible stuff though, like a highly aggressive cancer.

I'm sure it will be of great historical value (aka All the President's Men) - but I don't see the point of reading about what we are currently going through.  To be fair, there may be a large majority of people that need investigative journalism with corroborated sources to tell them that what they are seeing is actually true, to help counter the false reality Trump and his ilk are trying to spread.

It's nice to have everything documented, but for those who won't find any surprises - I assume the book is as relevant as a Ric Romero interview.

What's even funnier is that he had already called Woodward to see if it could be included a whole back, and was told it was too late because the book had gone to press.

I'm about 1/3 of the way through "Rage," and one nice feature is that Woodward fact-checked all of Trump's claims throughout, without footnotes.. It's also a very clear read. Woodward may ramble and use slow speech a bit in love interviews, but his writing is near impeccable.

It's like super nice that the UAE and Bahrain recognize that Israel exists. But let's not forget who started that beef, because Israel refused to acknowledge that either Bahrain or the UAE existed for like the first 20 years after it was founded.

Brian The Fist: but I don't see the point of reading about what we are currently going through.


Because you want to stay informed through actual reporting corroborated by people with firsthand experience rather than through skimming headlines, memes, and Fark comments.

Twitter threads and Fark debates and Reddit meltdowns and CNN clips are nice and fun and all, but they're not a substitute for actual journalism.

Even if all it does is confirm that how you believe Trump functions behind closed doors really is how he functions behind closed doors, there is value in having it confirmed by a credible source free of the biases you or I might bring to the table.

Also, it's entertaining and compelling, if you're a politics junkie.

And would any of us be in these Fark pol threads if we weren't to at least some extent compelled by the saga unfolding before us?
