That segment of the Rachel Maddow show is both terrifying and confirmation of everything that most of us believe about this president. 

Here are more excerpts from WaPo:

The author — who first captured attention in 2018 as the unidentified author of a New York Times opinion column — describes Trump careening from one self-inflicted crisis to the next, “like a twelve-year-old in an air traffic control tower, pushing the buttons of government indiscriminately, indifferent to the planes skidding across the runway and the flights frantically diverting away from the airport.”

………

“I have decided to publish this anonymously because this debate is not about me,” the author writes. “It is about us. It is about how we want the presidency to reflect our country, and that is where the discussion should center. Some will call this ‘cowardice.’ My feelings are not hurt by the accusation. Nor am I unprepared to attach my name to criticism of President Trump. I may do so, in due course.”

………

“I was wrong about the ‘quiet resistance’ inside the Trump administration. Unelected bureaucrats and cabinet appointees were never going to steer Donald Trump the right direction in the long run, or refine his malignant management style. He is who he is.”

The author describes senior officials waking up in the morning “in a full-blown panic” over the wild pronouncements the president had made on Twitter.

“It’s like showing up at the nursing home at daybreak to find your elderly uncle running pantsless across the courtyard and cursing loudly about the cafeteria food, as worried attendants tried to catch him,” the author writes. “You’re stunned, amused, and embarrassed all at the same time. Only your uncle probably wouldn’t do it every single day, his words aren’t broadcast to the public, and he doesn’t have to lead the US government once he puts his pants on.”

……..

The book depicts Trump as making misogynistic and racist comments behind the scenes.

“I’ve sat and listened in uncomfortable silence as he talks about a woman’s appearance or performance,” the author writes. “He comments on makeup. He makes jokes about weight. He critiques clothing. He questions the toughness of women in and around his orbit. He uses words like ‘sweetie’ and ‘honey’ to address accomplished professionals. This is precisely the way a boss shouldn’t act in the work environment.”

The author alleges that Trump attempted a Hispanic accent during an Oval Office meeting to complain about migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

“We get these women coming in with like seven children,” Trump said, according to the book. “They are saying, ‘Oh, please help! My husband left me!’ They are useless. They don’t do anything for our country. At least if they came in with a husband we could put him in the fields to pick corn or something.”

…………

After the 2018 killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents, the author writes, Trump vented to advisers and said he would be foolish to stand up to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

“Do you know how stupid it would be to pick this fight?” Trump said, according to the book. “Oil would go up to one hundred fifty dollars a barrel. Jesus. How [expletive] stupid would I be?”

………

The author also ruminates about Trump’s fitness for office, describing him as reckless and without full control of his faculties.

“I am not qualified to diagnose the president’s mental acuity,” the author writes. “All I can tell you is that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness. He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity. Those who would claim otherwise are lying to themselves or to the country.”

My first question, after asking how in the hell did we let this happen, is how are people working in the White House not hitting the panic button every single day? 

I am also reminded that we should never have needed this Ukraine phone call to start an impeachment inquiry, we already had plenty of evidence that Trump needed to be removed from power. 

When this presidency is finally put out of our misery I would hope that the entire legislative branch experiences an awakening and realizes that the process we have in place to remove a dangerous leader from the White House is simply inadequate, and that new, stricter, regulations need to be adopted to protect us from another Donald Trump.

    “According to the Post’s reading of the book, the author says Trump often addresses professional women as “sweetie” and “honey,” and comments on women’s makeup, weight and clothing. Trump also reportedly said it would be “stupid” of him to pick a fight with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince over the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.”

      Yea well trump is a coward and when push comes to shove he is going to beg for a deal, no prison time, no impeachment conviction and he resigns. Then he will go home and be on twitter 24/7 bashing his opponents, our country and play the victim until he kicks the bucket.

    “regime cleavage.”
    “We have become so used to these attacks on our constitutional order that we fail to be shocked by Trump’s insistence that a constitutional impeachment inquiry is a “coup.” By any measure, this is an extraordinary statement, and itself an impeachable offense as a form of “contempt for Congress.”
    “This is not just another kind of presidency; it is a rolling and potentially irreversible assault on the legitimacy of the American regime. If the CIA finds something that could reflect poorly on him, then the CIA is part of the “deep state coup.” Ditto the FBI and the State Department. These are not old-fashioned battles with a bureaucracy over policy; that’s fine. They are assaults on the legitimacy of the bureaucracy, and the laws they are required to uphold. These are definitional impeachable offenses, and they are part and parcel of Trump’s abuse of power from the day he was elected.

    And most important of all, Trump has turned the GOP — one of our two major parties with a long and distinguished history — into an accomplice in his crimes.”
    “I wish there were another way forward. But there isn’t. And this, though a moment of great danger, also contains the glimmers of renewal. Removing this petty, shabby tyrant from office goes a long way to restoring and resetting the Constitution as a limit on power and a guarantee against its wanton future abuse. It must be done. With speed, with vigor, and with determination.”

    How does a book by Anonymous confirm anything? You are nuts. It is unreal what you let yourself believe.

    I guess because Maddow who has yet to get anything right, talked about it lololol.

    Time to grow up Gryphen.

    I feel like I know how a liberal German living in Germany in the 1930’s would feel. It’s hurtful and scary and infuriating to watch our country go through this. Trump getting elected for a second term will speed this all up and take us to where Germany was September 1939. Things will go from bad to worse. Donald Trump must be stopped or he will surely escalate his behavior.

      I heard Gorbachev thought the tensions were escalating between Russia & USA. Now we hear of a pow-wow? Seal the deal? Eyeroll.

    Interesting that trump has not been making the rounds demanding that the identity of Anonymous be outed or sue the publisher. Or did i miss one of his hundred tweets in the past few days.

    “He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity. ”
    ====
    I have no sympathy for any of these people, they are all complicit, putting themselves about our country and to be real nothing is new, he has been like this for 3 years.

    oh really, seems like he is OK with Hispanic women cleaning the rooms in his “resorts” and they don’t even need visas to do it.

    The question is why are the Republicans continuing to protect, defend and support him? They can get everything they want with Pence in charge. At this point Pence might have a better chance in 2020.

    ““Early on, briefers were told not to send lengthy documents. Trump wouldn’t read them,” the author writes. “Nor should they bring summaries to the Oval Office. If they must bring paper, then PowerPoint was preferred because he is a visual learner. Okay, that’s fine, many thought to themselves, leaders like to absorb information in different ways.

    “Then officials were told that PowerPoint decks needed to be slimmed down,” the author continues. “He needed more images to keep his interest — and fewer words. Then they were told to cut back the overall message (on complicated issues such as military readiness or the federal budget) to just three main points. Eh, that was still too much.

    “Soon West Wing aides were exchanging ‘best practices’ for success in the Oval Office,” the author adds. “The most salient advice? Forget the three points. Come in with one main point and repeat it — over and over again, even if the president inevitably goes off on tangents — until he gets it. Just keep steering the subject back to it. ONE point.””

    “The author also describes what it was like in the West Wing waking up to Trump’s early-morning Twitter tirades.

    “It’s like showing up at the nursing home at daybreak to find your elderly uncle running pantsless across the courtyard and cursing loudly about the cafeteria food, as worried attendants tried to catch him,” the author writes. “You’re stunned, amused, and embarrassed all at the same time.”

    Trump’s behavior can be so erratic, the author says, top administration officials have pre-written resignation letters. A group even considered a mass resignation over Trump’s response to the deadly 2017 white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Va., the author claims.”

    So where is the mass resignation after the Ukraine phone call? Unless they’ve already left by now. We only hear about the turnover in the top eschelon. I’ll bet the minions are also churning in resignations and hires.
