Rage by Bob Woodward Book Summary
Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.
Woodward, the #1 international bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes readers into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans.
In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months—an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door.”
At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president.
Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making.
Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents.
Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film.”
Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”

😏🤔🤯Top line: 😏1. In Rage, a brilliant book, Woodward confirms that Trump is and performs exactly as I suspected. 🤔2. As I considered Woodward’s literary painting of the person, Trump, and the power of the office in which he sits, and Mary T’s book a d Michael C’s book, I’m led further to: 3. 🤯. And you should be too. Anyone, and I mean anyone, who wants to more clearly understand the Trumpian years, now or in the future, must read, Rage..Score: 5/5
Beautiful example of how TDS turns projection into artIt’s unreal to me how this stuff still sells, but i guess the minds of the sheep are unwilling to break free of the hold they’ve given President Trump. The title of this book alone says it all: “RAGE”, a constant accusation thrown at the president but with little basis in reality, or evidence to back it up. The only rage exhibited is from those who hate the man with every fiber of their being, but lacking justification for this hatred. Is it his policies? Doubt it, they often can’t point to a single one that has the kind of negative effect on the country or the world that any number of Obama/Bush policies had, such as the wars, drone strikes, wall street bailout, 08 crash, etc had, many of which we are still recovering from. There is nothing like that being suffered as a result of 4 years under President Trump. All they have is his personality, which is polarizing, no doubt, but the man isn’t angry, or full of “RAGE”, wuite the opposite, he’s a troll, and a rather funny guy. What we are seeing with the constant claims of the president’s anger, is projection, a common tool of the modern left where they accuse their opponents of the very things they are guilty of, and for some reason it not only works, but is extremely effective, despite the overwhelming examples of them being the guilty party. From everything from 2016 accusations of refusal to accept the results of the election, and then seeing democrats spend 4 years refusing to accept the results, even fabricating “russian collusion” and subsequent investigation, attempting to remove a rightfully elected president from office, and to repair their shattered minds, broken from the shock of his victory. It was their way of coping with such a defeat, as well as covering for their own collusion with ukraine. Now we hear once again that Trump will not step down if he loses the election, and he will not accept the results, while we hear top democrats say joe biden should not concede the election under any circumstances. More projection. Skip this book, free your minds of the rot the establishment has subjected you to with their lies and corruption. This books bog selling point is the “revelation” that Trump was given intel on covid that was much worse, than his portrayal to the public..... that’s it? Of course it was, one of the presidents primary roles is to be a stoic figure to reassure the public in times of crisis. The media sure as hell didnt do this, as they have been trying to panic everyone for 8 months now, despite clear evidence that we have nothing to worry about. The president made sure proplr did not panic, as that would have led to riots, shortages of key supplies, etc and resulted in new problems on top of the pandemic. He did the right thing, but the unhinged cant grasp that. Is President Trump perfect? No, not at all, but he’s not 1% as bad as we are told by the establishment elite. What we are witnessing is the final death throes of a dinosaur, they know they are on the verge of collapse and their monopoly on power is on the brink, trump is merely the bull in the ivory tower tearing it apart and they are desperate to get back in and lock the door forever. Do not let them back in, and certainly do not let grifters like Bob Woodward profit from this garbage. The rage is the lefts reaction to the president, thats their problem, not his..Score: 1/5

Again, 1-star reviewers haven’t readBut they certainly need to. I think it’s hilarious the reviewers who call Woodward a Democrat. He’s Republican, or at least was before Trump. He has been critical of all administrations, Democrat and Republican. It’s just that this current president is so divisive and so catastrophically unfit for office, that this candid portrait of a chaotic White House would of course be negative; almost everyone who has quit or been fired, with the exception of a couple of sycophants, will tell you what a disaster he is. Woodward doesn’t have to paint a bad picture of Donald because Donald does that all by himself. If you’re a racist, of course you’ll want to back a president who believes and hates the way you do, so you’ll ignore the plethora of bad qualities this man exhibits on the daily..Score: 5/5
