The latest author to write a book about the President is apparently approaching Trump from the other side of the spectrum of dishy tell-alls: the right side. (Not “right” as in “correct.”)
In addition to claiming that President Donald Trump will one day be considered a great president (LOL), this new author, Ronald Kessler, is portraying Trump as a sympathetic figure and going after other surprising targets, such as Kellyanne Conway.
“If you wonder why there are so many leaks out of the White House, one reason is Kellyanne Conway is the number one leaker,” said Kessler to Jake Tapper on Sunday during CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Kessler, who once worked for The Washington Post (probably for, like, a day), told Tapper that Conway was also brazen in her criticisms of her colleagues when he was interviewing her for his new book, The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game, which comes out Tuesday.
Allegedly, Conway said some of the “most mean, cutting and obviously untrue” things about Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and former chief of staff Reince Priebus, according to Kessler. Kessler also revealed that Trump knows that his daughter and Kushner are “problems,” and that their inexperience has led them to influence Trump’s most stupid and dangerous decisions of his presidency, such as firing James Comey.
Wait, so does that mean Trump’s own complete dearth of experience hasn’t influenced any of his decisions? We love that Kessler is trying to gaslight us into thinking that Trump is merely a stable genius being held back by his friends and incompetent family members, and that if it weren’t for those pesky kids, he would have solved world hunger by now. Or at least freed every last sex slave currently being held by Hillary Clinton and her minions inside the basement of a NYC pizzeria.
