White House: Woodward’s Book ‘Fabricated Stories’; Kelly Says He Didn’t Call Trump an ‘Idiot,’


Bob Woodward’s highly anticipated book on President Donald Trump is “nothing more than fabricated stories,” the White House said Tuesday.

“This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad. While it is not always pretty, and rare that the press actually covers it, President Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people,” the White House said in a statement.

“Sometimes it is unconventional, but he always gets results. Democrats and their allies in the media understand the President’s policies are working and with success like this, no one can beat him in 2020 – not even close.”

Woodward’s forthcoming book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” reveals a nervous breakdown of Trump’s presidency through the eyes of the president’s inner circle, according to The Washington Post.

“Woodward describes ‘an administrative coup d’etat’ and a ‘nervous breakdown’ of the executive branch, with senior aides conspiring to pluck official papers from the president’s desk so he couldn’t see or sign them,” the Post said in its report.

The book also claims Chief of Staff John Kelly called the president an “idiot” during discussions with associates.

“The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true. As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: “I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship,” Kelly said in a statement. “He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.”

Kelly frequently told colleagues that he thought the president was “unhinged,” Woodward writes in the book, according to the Washington Post. In one small group meeting, Kelly said of Trump: “He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”

Woodward writes that his book is drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand participants and witnesses, many of which were conducted on condition he would not reveal that they were the source of information. His account is also drawn from meeting notes, personal diaries and government documents, according to the Washington Post article.

The post published a transcript and audio of a phone call between Woodward and Trump, who the newspaper said didn’t respond to the author’s interview requests until August, after the book was completed.

Woodward’s book comes less than a month after former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman published a tell-all account of her first year in the Trump administration, calling the president a “con” and a “racist.”

  1. As though anyone on the left has any credibility at this point… Woodward did his best to get rid of Nixon and he’s part of the cabal doing whatever they can to get rid of President Trump. Truth? That means nothing to the left. I wouldn’t waste my money on this trash.

  2. Is Bob Woodward showing the signs of Alzheimer or is he just another Left wing liar? I am beginning to think the Lefties are dumber than rocks if they think we would believe any of their BS.

    • Get ready for the left to try a rig the elections, like they always do. If it’s a fair election then the GOP should add seats both to the Senate and House because the people are seeing these constant lies and attempts to overthrow Trump in plain site. They are not even hiding it.
      To all Republics, Democrats and Independents if you want 4 more years of continued growth and strength don’t sit home. Get out their and vote. For those who sit home I don’t want to hear you bitch about why Trump was impeached.
      You will be blamed for the death of the Republic and the cause of the Civil War.

  3. So here comes Mr. Deep Throat slinking along to be the Deep State hero by publishing his book on the inner workings of Trump. Now keep in mind that he puts himself out there as a “investigative journalist” but some how the scandals of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton didn’t seem to be important enough for Woodward’s pen. But, to his credit, he did shed some light on how the Obama mafia team works. He appeared on a FOX news program after the infamous government shut down after the budget show down between Obama and Ted Cruz. Remember that the procedure called “Sequestration” was born out of that battle. When the affects of that procedure AKA budget freezes started coming into play, Obama started squealing that it was the Republicans were responsible for that element in the budget agreement. Woodward stated on the air that it was in fact Obama’s idea. And that after stating that fact publicly, he got a call from the White House. He would not say who called him but the message was clear and not a pleasant one. Do not rat out a fellow liberal…… But Woodward is essentially a leftist journalist hack and doesn’t make any bones about it.

  4. Ah yes . . . the ‘comedy trio” (of “Fancy Girls”) ‘–Omaroso, Stormy Daniels & Bobbo Woodward are long shots on the NYT best sellers’ bimbo list. Lotsa ‘buy-backs’ here . . .
