John Kelly thinks Trump is an ‘idiot’ who has ‘gone off the rails in Crazytown’: Bob Woodward

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly

Bob Woodward’s explosive new book on the Trump White House reveals that chief of staff John Kelly has regularly attacked both the president’s intelligence and sanity.

In an excerpt leaked to the Washington Post, Woodward writes that Kelly has regularly blown up after having interactions with the president.

“He’s an idiot,” Kelly said of Trump during one group meeting, according to Woodward’s sources. “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 also claims that Reince Priebus, who served as Trump’s first chief of staff, similarly dreaded what Trump would do when out of adult supervision. Specifically, he says Priebus would describe the president’s time sitting alone watching cable news in the presidential bedroom as “the witching hour,” as he feared that the president might launch an ill-advised tweet after getting angry at something he saw on TV.

Trump, Woodward reports, similarly had contempt for Priebus and described him as “a little rat” who “just scurries around.”

The video of Ducey looking at his phone as it played "Hail to the Chief," and then placing it facedown on the desk, went viral late Monday afternoon.

I have often dubbed “fascism” mental pathology in politics, and as a fascism scholar and author of the new book, Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present, Prof. Ruth Ben-Ghiat is as psychologically-minded as historians come.  The way mental health professionals have brought the context of our experience with patients to understanding the turbulent presidency of Donald Trump, she has brought the context of historical figures.  I interviewed her at our recent town hall.

‘It’s over’: Joe Biden’s win is certified in all key states — and Donald Trump can’t handle the truth

Published

Since Nov. 7, the result of the 2020 presidential race has been clear: Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump by a substantial enough margin that the outcome has never really been in doubt by serious observers. But on Monday, the results met a new official threshold as Arizona and Wisconsin became the final decisive swing states to certify their votes.

"All six key states have now certified their election results with Joe Biden as the winner," said attorney Marc Elias, who has been involved in key election law cases for the Democratic Party. "Trump and his allies remain 1-39 in court."
