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

Published

on

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.”

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.

But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.

‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question

Published

on

In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.
