Donald Trump lashes out at his biographer as ‘broken down hack’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Thursday attacked a biographer and CNN analyst for unflattering analysis of his administration.

“A third-rate conman who interviewed me many years ago for just a short period of time has been playing his biggest con of all on fake news CNN,” Trump claimed.

“Michael D’Antonio, a broken down hack who knows nothing about me, goes on night after night telling made up Trump stories,” he complained.

D’Antonio is the author of the 2016 book The Truth About Trump.

“Disgraceful,” Trump added.

On Wednesday evening, after Trump caved to Nancy Pelosi, D’Antonio said the president was scared.

“It’s shocking,” D’Antonio said. “This sounds like something that maybe Ivanka wrote or Jared Kushner. It really doesn’t sound like Donald Trump’s language. This is a fellow who has troubles stringing three words together in the right order.”

“I think he’s scared. He’s afraid,” the biographer continued. “He’s politically afraid the Senate Republicans are probably telling him this is a disaster. He sees that people are suffering and are fed up with maybe he’s going to act presidential because he’s being forced to act presidential.”

Last week, D’Antonio said Trump feels a need to “rig” everything he does.

“Donald Trump believes either you’re a sucker or you’re taking advantage of the suckers,” he said. “So we were the suckers. They took advantage of us. But there’s also I think something consistent with Donald Trump’s entire life going on here. This is a man who thinks that he cannot win a straight-up competition. He has to somehow rig whatever game he’s playing.”

D’Antonio was a member of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team at Newsday and he has written for The New York Times and The Washington Post.

After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.

Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.

"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
