Watergate reporter Bob Woodward’s new book “Rage” is coming out next week — and the leaked excerpts in it contain multiple damaging bombshells for President Donald Trump, Brad Reed wrote for Raw Story early morning of September 10, 2020.

Reed said the following Are the most damning details of “Rage” are the following: 1) Trump said that he knew the novel coronavirus was five times more deadly than the seasonal flu — then admitted to playing it down in public, saying “I wanted to always play it down,” Trump said on March 19th, shortly after he declared a national emergency and “I still like playing it down”; 2) Trump gushes over Kim Jong-un in lurid detail, admitting Kim to be “far beyond smart,” while also boasting that Kim “tells me everything,” including a detailed account of how he killed his own uncle, and said Kim disparaged former President Barack Obama, describing him as an “assh*le”; 3) Trump ranted about his own generals being “p*ssies” and was apparently unhappy with the way that America’s military brass placed a premium on maintaining the country’s alliances with other nations, which the president said constrained his ability to cut trade deals. “My f*cking generals are a bunch of p*ssies,” the president ranted. “They care more about their alliances than they do about trade deals”; 4) Trump’s own former Director of National Intelligence suspected that the president may have been blackmailed by Russia. Former DNI Dan Coats found himself puzzled by the president’s adoration of Russian President Vladimir Putin and came to believe that the only plausible explanation was some form of blackmail, and; 5.) Trump brushed off centuries worth of oppression against Black Americans by boasting about the low unemployment level before the pandemic hit.

Reed said Woodward pressed Trump about this by recounting the history of Black people in America, but the president refused to hear it and instead called Black Americans ungrateful of his supposed efforts to get them jobs.

“I’ve done a tremendous amount for the Black community,” Trump bragged. “And, honestly, I’m not feeling any love.”
