After what I had read, heard and seen about Bob Woodward’s “Fear,” I never actually expected to find anything positive in the book about President Trump.
Okay, there’s not much. But there is some. Yet in the end our president comes off as ill-informed, unprepared and impulsive. Not a good combination in the Oval Office. Still, I didn’t need this book to know that a corrosive and haphazard culture is threatening our nation’s stability and security.
Chapter 13 is especially interesting, informative and entertaining as Woodward describes the evolution of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s relationship with the president.
In the end, I found myself with mixed feelings: relieved there are people who occasionally stand between Trump and enactment of ill-considered decisions, but also upset and frightened that circumstances have caused a subversion of power.
