The anonymous author of a promising government book Donald Trump raises questions about the mental fitness of the president to hold office.
The author, who appears in the Trump administration as & # 39; senior official & # 39; is described, claims that Trump is tripping, blemish and easily confused.
& # 39; I am not qualified to diagnose the president's mental acuity, & # 39; Anonymous writes, according to a copy of the book obtained by The Washington Post. & # 39; The only thing I can tell you is that normal people who spend time with Donald Trump feel uncomfortable with what they see. He stumbles, blemishes, gets confused, gets irritated quickly and has difficulty synthesizing information, not occasionally, but regularly. Those who would claim otherwise lie to themselves or to the country. & # 39;
Anonymous questions about the spiritual fitness of President Donald Trump in a comprehensive book on administration
The book offers details about how Trump works as a president and paints a portrait of an awkward and sometimes cruel commander-in-chief.
The author writes that the president is & # 39; as a 12-year-old in an air traffic control tower, without pressing the buttons of the government, indifferent to the planes slipping over the runway and the flights furiously deviating from the airport & # 39 ;.
Anonymous is said to be the same person who wrote the resistance in The New York Times last year. His or her 259-page book – & # 39; A Warning & # 39; – is an extension of that and reveals more behind the scenes details of the Trump administration at work.
In other scenes, the author describes senior officials who & # 39; in full panic & # 39; woke up about statements Trump made via Twitter.
The president often uses the social media platform to make policy decisions, to attack his political rivals and to fire his staff.
& # 39; It is as if you turn up at the dawn of the day in the nursing home to watch your older uncle without pants running across the courtyard and swearing loudly over the food of the cafeteria, while anxious servants tried to catch him, & # 39; Anonymous writes. & # 39; You are amazed, amused and ashamed at the same time. Only your uncle would probably not do it every day, his words are not broadcast to the public and he does not have to lead the US government if he puts on his pants. & # 39;
The author also describes that Trump makes comments about the apparitions of women.
& # 39; I have sat and listened in uncomfortable silence while talking about the appearance or performance of a woman & # 39 ;, the person writes. & # 39; He comments on makeup. He jokes about weight. He criticizes clothing. He wonders how hard women are in and around his job. He uses words like & # 39; sweetheart & # 39; and & # 39; estimate & # 39; to appeal to experienced professionals. This is exactly the way a boss should not act in the work environment. & # 39;
In the book, the author claims that Trump used a tried Spanish accent during a Oval Office meeting to complain about illegal immigrants crossing the border.
& # 39; We let these women come in with seven children, & # 39; said Trump, according to the book with the exception of The Washington Post. & # 39; They say: & # 39; Oh, please help! My husband left me! & # 39; They are useless. They do nothing for our country. At least if they came in with a man, we could put him in the field to pick corn or something. & # 39;
The author notes that his or her breaking point was the death of Senator John McCain last year, when the President tried to prevent the White House flag from being brought to half the staff
The White House flag was eventually lowered
The author has been criticized for not revealing his or her identity and has come under fire from the Trump government.
Earlier this week, the Justice Department warned the author that he or she & # 39; one or more confidentiality agreements & # 39; would violate by writing the book
In return, the author's agents accused the DoJ of finding out the identity of the author.
And the White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, has accused the author of being a coward.
& # 39; The coward who wrote this book did not put his name on it because it is nothing but lies, & # 39; said Grisham in a statement to the Post. & # 39; Real authors contact their test subjects to have things checked – but this person is in hiding, making that very elementary part of a real writer impossible. Reporters who choose to write about this farce must have journalistic integrity to cover the book as it is – a work of fiction. & # 39;
Anonymous addresses the problem in the book and says he or she can come up with their name on time.
& # 39; I have decided to publish this anonymously because this debate is not about me & # 39 ;, writes the author. & # 39; It's about us. It is about how we want the Presidency to reflect our country, and that is where the discussion should be at the center. Some will like this & # 39; cowardice & # 39; to mention. My feelings are not hurt by the accusation. I am also not prepared to link my name to criticism of President Trump. I can do that in due course. & # 39;
& # 39; A Warning & # 39; van Anonymous is scheduled for November 19th
The book seems full of the kind of facts that ensure good headlines and good conversation at the dining table.
The author writes that President Trump considered presidential grace to be & # 39; unlimited & # 39; Get Out of Jail Free & # 39; cards on a Monopoly board & # 39; since he considered them to be assistants involved in various administrative investigations.
Trump also complained about various court rulings against his administration policy, including his 2017 travel ban, so he asked White House lawyers to draft a bill to send federal judges to Congress.
& # 39; Can we just get rid of the judges? Let's get rid of the [expletive] judges, & he said according to the book. & # 39; There should really be nothing at all. & # 39;
The New York Times speculates that the author & # 39; dyed wool republic & # 39; is.
& # 39; Many reasonable people voted for Trump because they love their country, wanted to shake up the establishment and thought the alternative was worse & & # 39 ;, Anonymous writes in an exception. & # 39; I know you because I felt the same way. & # 39;
In his review of the book, the Times seems to write that Anonymous realizes & # 39;somewhat late, that President Trump & # 39; s paddle of birtherism conspiracy theories and his boasting about grasping women's genitalia might have formed their own kind of warning – plausible proof that Mr. Trump would not magically transform into the worthy statesman Anonymous so desperately wanted him to be. & # 39;
The author notes that his or her breaking point was the death of Senator John McCain last year, when the President tried to prevent the White House flag from being brought to half the staff.
& # 39; President Trump was unprecedentedly determined to use his office to limit the recognition by the land of John McCain's legacy, & # 39; Anonymous writes.
Amazon sells the book for $ 30.00. The e-book version of Kindle costs $ 15.99.
