The conclusion drawn from Wolff’s book is that the executive role of the American government, as we knew it, ceased to exist.
Trump’s obscenities and offensive remarks are not accidents. There is a method to them, and they are an expression of a deliberate cultural break.
Trump's White House is the madhouse that those who endorse his genius expected.
As a candidate, Trump used Bannon as long as it worked. As president, when he no longer needed him ... he simply got rid of him.
Wouldn’t you want to have a long talk with Bannon if you were in Mueller’s shoes? [Or] better yet, with Trump himself.
Wolff portrays a president who was clueless, void of ideas, disinterested, unable to learn, focused solely on appearances, immature, paranoid, dishonest, irascible and hopelessly narcissistic.
The message is clear – whoever wants to overshadow the boss, whoever blabs to the press without authorization, whoever criticizes the Trump family like Bannon did, will be mercilessly seen off.
