New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman appeared on CNN Friday morning to discuss former FBI Director James Comey's upcoming book -- and she predicted that it would send President Donald Trump into a spiral of rage.


Reacting to Trump's angry Friday tweets attacking Comey, Haberman said that the president is feeling a sense of impotent rage as he watches interview clips with Comey pop up around cable news -- which will only get worse next week when Comey's promotion tour hits full gear.

"He is going to feel like he has to do something to reclaim the narrative and just tweeting is not going to be enough because as we are seeing, Comey and this interview, which doesn't even air until another couple of days, is going to be everywhere," Haberman said. "And that is going to make him crazy."

Haberman then noted that Trump's schedule next week is unusually light after he decided to cancel a planned trip to South America, meaning he'll have a lot of alone time to sit and watch cable news cover Comey's book.

"He is then going to go to Mar-a-Lago next week for a summit with the Japanese prime minister," she said. "This is going to be a lot of downtime with him in front of the TV stewing, and that is always a danger point."
