Fear: Trump in the White House (Finally finished via Audible)

Fear: Trump in the White HouseFear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although the events mentioned are a reiteration of what we already know, the book sheds light on the unpreparedness of the current administration and how dogma/impetuosity are etched in Trump’s character. He was an “actor” in his own rise to presidency; he was clueless about any form of strategy. Despite his inherent cultural biases, he actually faltered in choosing what his campaign stood for. It was decided for him. Those that did this “brain-work for him” were later fired or left out of the little “self-respect” they had for themselves rather than deserved.

We aren’t shocked that he’s glued to Fox News six hours a day. This is almost cliche to hear by now. It is more of how we’re now zoomed into each character in the presidency that makes this read worthwhile. {Jared/Ivanka sympathize with the DACA children?)

When you look at the events in retrospect or as a story, it is still another perspective worth the read.
