Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio reacted in shock on Wednesday after learning details of how President Donald Trump withheld the dangers of COVID-19 from the American public.
D’Antonio told CNN that Trump likely agreed to interviews with veteran journalist Bob Woodward because “his reality was formed back in the ’70s when Richard Nixon was president and Bob Woodward was the most famous reporter in the world.”
“He thinks that this is a wonderful thing that Woodward wants to speak to him,” D’Antonio speculated. “But he’s also a con man. He believes that he can con almost anyone. He believes he could con Woodward.”
“But the strange, bizarre element in all of this is that as he’s speaking to Woodward, he’s revealing that he doesn’t believe his own con,” the Trump biographer continued. “So, he knew he was lying. He knew these were lethal lies that were tantamount to homicide for tens of thousands of Americans.”
D’Antonio added: “I mean, this is so self-destructive, so bizarre, so depraved that you really have to wonder how many screws loose this man has.”

Conservative New Hampshire paper breaks 100-year tradition of GOP presidential endorsements with nod to Biden
In it's first Democratic endorsement in 100 years, a conservative New Hampshire newspaper is breaking tradition by backing Joe Biden for president.
The New Hampshire Union Leader released a statement in their publication on Sunday defending their decision.
"There is no love lost between this newspaper and President Donald J. Trump. The Union Leader was very quickly dismissed by then-candidate Trump after we failed to bestow on him our endorsement in the Republican primary four years ago, "the statement said. "We were hopeful with Trump’s win that he might change, that the weight and responsibility of the Oval Office might mold a more respectful and presidential man. We have watched with the rest of the world as the mantle of the presidency has done very little to change Trump while the country and world have changed significantly."
