The failure that was the Obama administration just took a turn to the hilarious. A new book by Bob Woodward claims to tell the behind the scenes stories of Trump’s two years in office.
It is full of gossip to be sure but some quotes seem to ring true, based on historical evidence the nickname Trump uses for Obama behind closed doors is one of them.
Why? Because it is so perfect and Obama was so weak on so many things.
As reported by Bustle: When the journalist famous for breaking open the Watergate scandal speaks, you listen. On Sept. 11, a new book about the Trump presidency by the one and only Bob Woodward is set to be published, and it contains some extraordinary claims about the sitting president. According to Woodward’s account, President Trump reportedly called Obama a “weak dick” over Obama’s conduct regarding Syria — and that’s far from the only mind-bending story within the book’s 448 pages.
CNN obtained a copy of the forthcoming book, Fear: Trump in the White House, and according to its account, Obama isn’t the only recipient of Trump’s frequent insults. Others — ranging from frequent Twitter target Jeff Sessions to Trump defender Rudy Giuliani — have also reportedly been the on the receiving end of the president’s colorful insults. The reported insults weren’t what aides found the most terrifying, though, according to CNN. Foreign policy — including policy on Syria — is one of the areas where Trump’s conduct sparked the most fear among his aides, according to Woodward.
Bustle has reached out to the White House for comment on the book. According to the transcript of a phone call between Woodward and the president, Trump said, “So we’re going to have a very inaccurate book, and that’s too bad.”
CNN has also obtained a copy of the book. In it, Woodward writes that during a conversation with Sen. Lindsey Graham, Trump called President Barack Obama a "weak dick" for not acting in Syria. https://t.co/rl7ZBVFkcH
