Bob Woodward Blasted for Withholding Trump’s Comments on COVID-19 for Months

HeadlineSep 10, 2020

Bob Woodward is under fire for holding back his reporting on Trump’s deception for months while the pandemic raged across the U.S. Esquire magazine politics blogger Charles Pierce tweeted, “Bob Woodward knew the truth behind the administration’s deadly bungling — and worse — and he saved it for his book, which will be released to wild acclaim and huge profits after nearly 200,000 Americans have died.”

In further revelations from his new book, Woodward writes that Trump boasted about a highly classified new type of nuclear weapon. And he quotes top infectious disease scientist Dr. Anthony Fauci saying of President Trump, “His attention span is like a minus number. … His sole purpose is to get reelected.”
