CNN’s Phil Mudd: Trump has the temperament of a 4th grader, judgment of a 3rd grader and intellect of a 5th grader

Veteran Journalist Bob Woodward released excerpts from his book revealing the dysfunction of President Donald Trump’s White House.

On Tuesday, Ex-CIA officer Phil Mudd said that book reveals what most people already thought about Trump during a panel discussion with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

“It’s beyond stunning. In his latest book, Bob Woodward presents a devastating look behind the scenes of the Trump White House,” Blitzer said. “Top members of the president’s inner circle speak very bluntly about the dysfunction, the chaos stemming from what they portray as the president’s ignorance and erratic behavior.”

One claim in the book is that Trump has the intelligence of a 5th grader. Mudd agreed with the claim.

“The president has the temperament of a fourth grader, the judgment of a third grader and the intellect of a fifth grader,” Mudd said.

Additionally, ABC News reports that the recording was made by Igor Fruman, the now-indicted henchman of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who captured the president's voice during a private dinner where he also met with Fruman's co-conspirator, Lev Parnas.

Republicans’ phony impeachment outrage can’t conceal their deep-seated anxiety

Published

on

When you watch a trial, whether you're on a jury yourself or on the couch in front of the TV, the prosecution's presentation always seems airtight — until you see the defense. So I don't want to say at this stage that the House managers in Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial have made their case. But seriously, it's hard to see how the president's team can plausibly explain away this behavior. Their only choice will be to admit that all the evidence is true and tell the American people that it was perfect.
