Sarah Sanders Mocks, Debunks Bob Woodward’s Anti-Trump Book with One Simple Truth

Published

A month after numerous anti-Trump claims from Omarosa Manigault Newman’s new book “Unhinged” fell apart under scrutiny, famed Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward launched his own book full of his own attacks on President Trump.

The book, entitled “Fear: Trump in the White House,” claims that U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told his colleagues “the president acted like — and had the understanding of — a ‘fifth or sixth grader,’” according to the New York Times.

Woodward also wrote that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly complained that Trump was “off the rails,” “unhinged,” and an “idiot.”

“We’re in crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here,” Woodward insists Kelly said. “This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”

But Mattis and Kelly have now spoken out, explaining that while the internal workings of any presidency can naturally get a little messy, they have great respect for Trump and did not utter the words Woodward claims they uttered.

“The contemptuous words about the President attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence,” Mattis wrote in a statement. “While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility.”

“While responsibly policy making in the real world is inherently messy, it is also essential that we challenge every assumption to find the best option,” he continued before praising how his “robust discussions and deliberations” with the president have resulted in enormous progress in dealing with ISIS and North Korea.

“In serving in this administration, that idea that I would show contempt for the elected Commander-in-Chief, President Trump, or tolerate disrespect to the office of the President from within our Department of Defense, is a product of someone’s rich imagination.”

Kelly wrote, “The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true, in fact it’s exactly the opposite.”

He continued, “As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: I spent more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” he added. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sent out an official press release, stating, “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad.”

“While it is not always pretty, and rare that the press actually covers it, President Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people,” she continued. “Sometimes it is unconventional, but he always gets results.”

But on Wednesday, Sanders really drove things home with one simple phrase when reporters questioned her about the book.

“I don’t think you can have the type of success that we’ve had in the White House, under this president, if that book was an accurate reflection of what’s taking place,” she said.

Boom!
