It can be assumed that President Trump will not be watching “All the President’s Men” any time soon.
Trump snatched CNN’s Carl Bernstein as “crazy work” on Tuesday after a well-known Watergate reporter called him a “murder president” for holding a closed rally amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I mean, I know a little Carl Bernstein, he’s crazy. It’s been a crazy job for many years, “Trump said in a live telephone interview with FOX & Friends on Tuesday morning.
“Honestly, I don’t have much respect for any of them,” Trump said, referring to Bernstein and his Watergate partner, Bob Woodward.

“It was a complete crazy thing and I see it,” Trump continued. “He will say everything.” No matter what you did. Like today, I make a lot of deals with Israel … whatever you do, with some fake news, it doesn’t matter. “
Trump then spent time condemning the mainstream media for not devoting enough time to reporting that he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize pair before returning to his thoughts on Bernstein.
“Carl Bernstein is a mannequin. He’s a dumb man, and I read Woodward’s book last night, it’s like a light reading, and he doesn’t get it. When my policies turn out to be right, as well as … [Woodward] the book was really boring, I have to tell you, “Trump said.

Trump was annoyed by the comments Bernstein made on CNN’s Ann Anson Cooper 360 on Monday night when asked about Trump’s decision to hold indoor rallies.
“Let’s be very clear in what we are looking at here, we are witnessing a murderous president who deliberately convenes a murderous assembly to help him be re-elected president of the United States, instead of protecting the health and well-being of US states, including supporters. whose life he is willing to sacrifice, “Bernstein said.
WHY DID WASHINGTON PUT ON BOB WOODWARD’S RECORDS?
“Here is this president who has pledged part of his presidency on the right to life, especially the unborn, and every day he sacrifices the lives of thousands of Americans because he does not want to deal honestly, frankly with the worst internal crisis in our postwar history in this country, ”Bernstein continued. “He has abdicated his responsibility, and the result is the worst crime ever committed by any president in our history, and we now see it before us tonight, this murderous assembly that the US president called on his supporters to be sacrificial lambs. It’s amazing. “
As for the other half of the famous Woodward and Bernstein duo, Trump is worried that Woodward’s upcoming book, Rage, paints him in a negative light.
