The Wildest Things About Trump From Bob Woodward's New Book, 'Fear' John Dowd, Trump’s lead attorney with the Russia probe, led a practice session for Trump’s potential testimony with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 election. According to the book, the president stumbled, contradicted himself and lied so much during the practice session that he eventually lost his cool, ranting, “This thing’s a goddamn hoax,” before deciding, “I don’t really want to testify.” ---------------------------- OMG! Even when practicing telling the truth he fails. To still follow this guy means you have some deficit. Somewhere you are deficient. Or desperate. How sad to admire a failure we see unraveling before our eyes.
