I made it through Chapter 13 Trump and Putin Helsinki oh my and then my hay feverish yes gave out for the day For understanding Trump and his crazy train this is better than Wolff s arlier book or Woodward s or Comey s In the first 12 chapters at least Wolff has surfaced forgotten stories and given new information on the Pences Guiliani McConnell and the Trump family With one of the most respected Naked Choke editors in the book business and a suad of fact checkers I haven tven found a typo yet Don t let the news media investment in other stories this week keep you from reading this book I can t wait to go back to it What a contrast that was with Woodward s book Instead of high level leaks and national security Wolff s Siege is just pure gossipAnd that makes for an Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good entertaining read The guy does know how to write There s Karen Pence drama Giuliani s drinking and behind the scenes family scuffles at Fox NewsFor the most part this book is comfort food for the resistance The president is always portrayed as a total idiot and there s a certain reassuring satisfaction in having that confirmed Apparently absolutelyveryone around him thinks he is the absolute worst Even when criticizing the left and uoting Bannon and there is so much Bannon the overarching theme is still that the president is dumb as shit Another overarching theme is how all the people in his circle are constantly trying to steer and manipulate the highest office in the land with Murder at the Mansion endless distractions and strategies and theorizing what makes that infamous reality show host tick And the reason they work so hard is of course so that they can save their careers That s about it when it comes to making the government go round It gets very disturbing to hear about how all these people seem to be in it only for themselves Very seldomly do any of his inept kids or cohorts worry about what s best for the country and for the world More often they totally admit how unethical and often illegal the whole operation is and yet they must try their best to win Because it s their team or something This goes most for Bannon who is basically the co writer of this book He goes on and on and on about how stupid and insane his chosen president is but that s okay because he s fighting the so calledstablishment But after all those thousands of words Bannon never truly tries to xplain xactly how his movement would make citizens lives better in any way He fights hard to win and the uestion of why is never addressed The furthest Bannon seems to be able to think is that he s against third world immigrants and he s against China Oh and the bad thing about democrats is that they only care about people in the margins Again it is not addressed what people at all his party cares about The conclusion is that the new far right is only against things and for nothingWhat horrible people Then the book nds on an "Anti Climatic Note Due "climatic note due the disappointment of the Mueller Report as we all know Wolff certainly assumes the inevitability of the coming downfall there s no uestion as far as this author and all his sources are concerned I most definitely do hope so myself But without a proper nding for the book as much as it s worth reading as a Fire and Fury seuel it simply doesn t feel like it has a proper Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, endingNo doubt there will be at least a third in the trilogy and many will want to read and analyze the historical trainwreck of it all For this reader however I am left wondering why it is I keep coming back to these shitty Trmp books Have you watched the news on a semi regular basis over the past 2 years Have youver read the president s tweets And lastly are you modestly intelligent and can make simple inferences based on what you watch read and listen to If the answer to all those uestions is yes then 95% of the information in this book will ither already be known to you or you will have guessed it as muchWhat of the other 120 bits of data found in this book that may be new Wondered what Trump affiliated lawyer Sam Nunberg was doing prior to his bizarre incoherent history making 8 interviews in one day shattering the previous Full Ginsberg daily record of 4 news interviews during the Clinton Lewinsky affair Hint Snorting copious lines of coke off of a female prostitutes body part at least according to Steve BannonDid I want to know that No Could I have guessed it from Sam Nunberg bug yed performance during his interviews that day Probably Is this really important to get to the bottom of the whole mess that is the current administration PossiblyThe above actually accentuate the issues with the book Like the previous book Fire and Fury this book s value to the well informed reader is that adds much color to what may be going on in the background of the current administration I write may because like the previous text it is highly suspected by many readers of both of Wolff s books that the primary and possibly sole source for most of this book is in fact Steve Bannon who is an unreliable conveyor of information at best In fact you can see

Or Power Because Trumppower because Trump something over them or simply because no one lse will hire them Staff run office pools about when and how Trump will go down they avoid meetings because they don t want to be subpoenaed to testify later and all the while they plot their Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy exit And while I don t personallynjoy reading these kinds details I find them kind of depressing I don t think we should bury our heads in the sand ither because we are so worn down from this circus like reality show That Trump talks to Sean Hannity several times a day is willing to make policy decisions based on criticism from Hannity and Ann Coulter and that he is outraged when Fox News says anything negative about him all have implications for the state of our democracy and the free press There is also a good chapter here on Kushner and how his attempts to use his position for personal gain have driven our nation s foreign policy It s been said many times before but we must never normalize this president The book has a happy nding at least for Trump in that to his surprise and the surprise of veryone lse around him Mueller s final report played it relatively safe punting the hardest uestions to Congress and allowing Trump to live to fight another day But I think this victory will be short lived and that Trump s Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival eventual downfall is inevitable In my opinion Trump will be remembered as one of history s great deranged mad rulers How much damage he does is up to us and borrowing some words from my favorite Democratic primary candidate Pete Buttigieg I hope we can change the channel in 2020.
