NBC: Pulitzer Prize winner Bob Woodward joins ‘TODAY’ to talk about his bombshell new book, ‘Fear,’ an unsparing look at President Trump’s administration. The president responded to Woodward in a tweet shortly after the show (see below).
“I’ve never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what’s going on,” Woodward told host Savannah Guthrie.
“This has not been treated seriously enough,” Woodward said about Trump’s behavior. “Some of the things that Trump did and does jeopardize the real national security.”
Woodward when challenged on Trump officials and supporters denying statements said that they are the ones who are “not telling the truth.” He defended the authenticity of his book against criticism of the use of anonymous sources.
“This is a war on truth by [President Trump],” he said of attacks by Trump. “He said these are unnamed sources. But these are not unnamed incidents. Specific people on specific dates.”
“The incidents are not anonymous,” he said. “It gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often, the president himself and what he says.”
