Welcome to 'Crazytown' USA

Good Day World!

I hope you're ready for a tour of Crazytown, formerly called the White House. 

You should probably start with Bob Woodward's new book "FEAR."

"Woodward vividly quotes Priebus on the chaos of the White House’s decision making. “When you put a snake and a rat and a falcon and a rabbit and a shark and a seal in a zoo without walls, things start getting nasty and bloody. That’s what happens.” Dwight Garner, NY Times

And,

"John F. Kelly, Trump’s chief of staff, is quoted as saying about the president, in a meeting, “He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in crazytown.” 

After a stroll through Crazytown with Woodward, it's time to turn back the clock to August when Omarosa Manigault Newman, a white house advisor and only person of color in the West Wing, was fired.

Her response? Here's another tour of the White House for you, titled:

"Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House"

The first tour that started it all was Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" that came out in January.

"The president, while proposing the most radical departure from governing and policy norms in several generations," Wolff writes, "had few specific ideas about how to turn his themes and vitriol into policy, nor a team that could reasonably unite behind him."

After that quick tour let's take a step outside to the links on one of Trump's golf courses. 

Next May, a new book on Trump, titled "Commander In Cheat," written by famed sport writer Rick Reilly, is going to give readers another inside look at The Donald's lack of ethics that even extend to his golf game.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
