The new book on the last days of former President Donald Trump, Bob Woodward and Robert Costa Danger, has already caused big (if perhaps exaggerated) waves about the actions of Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley to prevent Trump from potentially starting a war to somehow stay in power. But there are “lesser revelations that may be catnip for political junkies,” Politics reports, teasing a few “nuggets”.

One involves former Attorney General William Barr and a “Come to Jesus” meeting he had with Trump in April 2020. Barr, who would remain for most of the rest of Trump’s presidency, is said to have seen how the elections could go and would have wanted to give Trump some frank political advice on the “charm offensive” he had to lead to reclaim the suburbs and the “repair job” he had to do with Republicans and independents who liked his politics but not his personality. “They just think you’re a fuckin ‘hole,” Barr reportedly told Trump.

Trump did not take this advice. He told Barr his base wanted him to “fight” for them, Woodward and Costa report. And after Trump lost and Barr told reporters that there had been no widespread electoral fraud, Trump reportedly told him, “You must have said that because you hate Trump, you must really hate Trump. “

Politics also has reports of an unsuccessful attempt to get Trump to award former President Mike Pence the Presidential Medal of Freedom to make things right after the Capitol siege on January 6, how President Biden’s friendship with Senator Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) collapsed, and more, and you can read them on Politics.
