Watch Stephen Colbert’s interview with Bob Woodward on Fear

  • Nolte Bob Woodward Amps Up Scare Tactics to Hype Book			CBS		10 Sep 2018

Listen, everyone knows that the best parts of the book now making the rounds are the parts about Gary Cohn living every day in mortal fear that he had to save America in his own, stealing papers from the oval office, accidentally cucking Steve Mnuchin in Trump Tower and explaining the kindergarten basics of monetary policy to the commander-in-chief. "It shows that the book is just a piece of fiction".

According to Woodward, Trump's about-face is just another example of his impulsive and emotional governing style, while others in the White House frantically manoeuvre around him to avoid worst-case scenarios. We learn things, secret things, off the record.

In "Fear", Woodward claims Trump accused Christie of "stealing" from him while he was assisting on the presidential campaign trail, notes The Hill.

Woodward tells Colbert how Trump goes "ballistic" at the questions and "makes things up, starts screaming, ' and says how the lawyer, Dowd, thought that if he had been Mueller, he would have been 'fired on the spot". The book also quotes White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as telling colleagues that the president was "unhinged" and "an idiot" who had "gone off the rails".

"Forget about Reince", Trump reportedly said.

To be frank, we're nearly surprised that Gary is still making a show of fealty to Trumpworld.

Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward told the BBC's Today Programme that the U.S. president had questioned security spending over South Korea, Europe and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in a national council security meeting a year ago. She claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006.

Trump was convinced not to send out the tweet in part after Secretary of Defence James Mattis told him those personnel are there "in order to prevent World War III", according to the book.

At the start of September, Trump took to Twitter to vent his frustration at the book. After all, Colbert manages to work in plenty of Woodward's bona fides during the interview, including how many books he's written (Fear is number 19), his Pulitzers (two), and how many presidents he's covered (nine). Trump alleged that the quotes were made up and accused the author for using tricks to demean him. Woodward is a Dem operative?

Taking a measured tone during the 20 televised minutes he appeared on the show, Woodward said that it took a good amount of time - and patience - to secure the interviews and documents that he used for his book, which depicts the Trump White House as a byzantine, treacherous, often out-of-control operation.

Woodward was born in IL in 1943 and attended Yale University before serving in the US Navy until 1970.

The following year he teamed up with Bernstein to investigate the June 17, 1972 burglary at the Democratic Party HQ in Washington, DC at the Watergate complex. It seems as though Woodward shouldn't experience that anymore, considering the political history that he's lived through and reported on. However the President resigned on August 9, 1974.

"Pakistan isn't helping us".

"The Woodward book is a scam".
