Trump’s Interview with Woodward Comes back to Haunt Him: One of the stupidest things Donald Trump has done is to allow Deep State journalists to interview him. Why is he then outraged when they betray him and make him look bad? But to top even his unwise decision to speak to Bob Woodward was his bragging to him about a new secret nuclear weapons system, which Woodward promptly leaked to the world. “I have built a nuclear — a weapons system that nobody’s ever had in this country before. We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about,” Trump told Woodward, according to the Post. Besides telling every indiscrete thing the president said or thought, Woodward made Trump looking like a laughing stock in his book “Rage.” And it was all gleefully excerpted in the anti-Trump Washington Post. There are too many damaging quotes to list here, but Woodward highlights every questionable answer the president gave.
