    Team of Vipers...

    Anyone else started on it? I hope it's easier reading than "Fear"...

    What do you mean by “easier reading”? Is “Fear” the Woodward book?

    Yes.

    After reading any given chapter, even Jon would have an uncontrollable urge to drop to his knees and thank God we're still alive.

    Have not read the book, but saw Sims on Morning Joe and another one of the MSNBC shows. He is obviously a Republican, but did not pull any punches when discussing his book and experiences in the WH. In his interview he nailed KellyAnne and Jared.

    Team of Vipers...

    Trump fired back @ Sims today calling him a low level “gofer”. Now they’re threatening to sue Cliff Sims for violating his non-disclosure agreement.

    Last week I posted the review of the book from WaPo in the Trump thread. I expected it to be a fluff piece with nothing but support for Trump. I do plan to read this and Woodward’s book.

    That is a disturbing visual.

    Heck, I thought it was about the NCAA's Selective Enforcement Hit Squad.

    One of the Birmingham talk radio guys is buddies with Sims but is also a big Trump supporter. He had Sims in quite a bit before he became a staffer. I’ve not listened this week but I wonder what his take on the book has been. Maybe others have listened to Leland Live this week and might could summarize. I kinda expect him to ignore it and tote the company line.

    You can bet on it. All of the negative reviewers on Amazon are obvious Trump supporters. The first part of the book shows Trump in a very negative light, which is why he is ....ed and belittling Sims...
