Ivanka and Jared Kushner just scolded Trump like a misbehaving toddler as Trump unravels in Oval Office

The release of the previews for veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s upcoming behind-the-scenes expose, Fear: Trump in the White House, has sent the White House into utter “pandemonium,” according to a stunning article from Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman. 


Even the President’s own family has been admonishing him in recent days, with Jared and Ivanka urging him to “get control” of himself following the fiasco that was President Trump’s handling of John McCain’s death.  “Jared told him if they’re going to last in Washington they can’t be this far off the mark with the establishment,” said a person briefed on the conversation.

Within the White House, the president is more isolated and angry than ever as his staff descends into civil war over suspicion and accusations of leaking. “It’s pandemonium. He literally isn’t talking to anyone. He’s canceled meetings and is on the phone calling up his friends,” revealed a source to Sherman.

The president’s tantrum is particularly fierce this time around because of the personal insults that Woodward reports his staff have leveled at the President, like “f*cking liar” and “fifth grader.”

He also irate at the absurd measures his staff have gone to in order to rein in his more destructive impulses, like straight-up stealing memos off of his desk before he signs them.

Though the two most senior staffers mentioned in the report, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chief of Staff John Kelly, have both issued publicly denied that they’ve said the disparaging remarks that Woodward reported they said, Trump is already thinking of firing them both and replacing them with people who haven’t insulted his intelligence.

Incapable of forgiving or forgetting, we are watching a presidency unravel before our very eyes. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t depressing.
