    If anyone is reading "Fear" the prologue is enough to scare the beejeesus out of you.

    In a one page letter Trump was getting ready to cancel our pact with South Korea, which would include removing the military and installations that monitor North Korean missile activity.

    In other words:

    An ICBM that would take 7 seconds to detect after launch would now take 38 minutes, about the time it would hit the continental United States.

    Edited: Woodward reports in his book that Gary Cohn and Rob Porter stole the letter from Trump's desk, betting on Trump's short-term memory loss that he would forget about it and move on to something else. Which Trump did (until this book came out yesterday).

    Um, what I left out that didn't make the news was Gary Cohn and Rob Porter stole the letter from Trump's desk in the Oval Office, betting on "the anarchy and disorder of the White House, and Trump's mind,..." he would never notice it was missing.

    Porter later discovered multiple copies of the draft and made sure those were gone, too.

    And until this book came out, that sleight of hand trick worked.

    In the first chapter Woodward writes that Trump started considering running for POTUS in 2010.
    He met with Steve Bannon and an RNC operative to discuss.
    The RNC guy told him he had a lot of work to do to clean up his voting and donor records.
    Trump got pissed and said he gave equally to both sides.
    The RNC guy had the records with him: Trump's voting record was straight Democratic, only voted in a primary once, and 80% of his donations went to Dems.
    Trump didn't know that donations were part of public records, he's such a dumbass.
    The RNC operative interviewed by Woodward is David Bossie.
    Read it and weep, Trumpanzees.

    The weird thing is that once he was confronted with the undeniable data about his voting record and the donations record, Trump turned on a dime and acted as if he hadn't just lied out of his ass.

    This reveals Trump lies whenever he thinks he can get away with it, which is often.

    Only a truly stupid person would ever believe a word from this pathological liar.

    Exactly! He gets caught lying about his voting record.
    And when it's shoved in his face he's unfazed, just says, "I'll get over that." Without missing a beat.
    THAT IS a patho liar.
    And that is why his lawyers will never let him sit down with Mueller.

    Trump is a world class huckster. He knew the rubes would disregard all evidence of his lying, hypocrisy and liberal record. He knows they are just that stupid. He depends on it.

    They bleev what they are told to bleev.

    He has nothing but contempt for them.

    He hasn't been relevant since deep throat and Watergate.

    His 15 minutes of fame expired long ago and his ego needs a reboot.
