Tell us something we don’t know

I’m not really sure who this book is intended for. Another reviewer mentioned that there’s nothing new you can’t see on the news everyday and I agree.

I genuinely do not like or respect Donald Trump in any way. With that being said, anonymous is so sanctimonious I could barely tolerate the lectures about honor and leadership. Anyone with critical thinking skills that hasn’t drank the Trump kool aid will not be surprised to learn that Trump doesn’t read and makes terrible decisions. We know.

Attempting to convince people there’s someone protecting our democracy from inside is a joke. If you want to see what brave “steady state” Americans look like, watch Yavonovich or Vindman call out this behavior publicly. Witnessing it everyday and not publicly condemning, and naming it, is enabling the corruption of the highest office.

History of Incompetence from Within

A Warning, by Anonymous, and narrated by Robert Fass. The cautioning, written of in A Warning, is simple to state here and now for your consideration. Donald Trump is ignorant, believes non-truths if they titillate his inner narcissism, cannot discern a problem nor measure solutions or even if he should bumble into coming upon a proposed resolution, he will not know how to apply it properly to a problem. What is great about this work is Anonymous analyzes the President by Cicero’s vision of leadership: wisdom, justice, greatness of spirit, and seemliness. It would be difficult for the minority of Americans who chose Trump as our president to have picked a more incompetent fool; according to Anonymous. What does that say for Americans? Perhaps it means a large proportion of us are buffoons. To un-baffoon yourselves, learn how to think rationally, do not listen to incitements, apply threads of thought against life experiences (a difficult mental task) or realize your ignorance and give up on your interference with democracy.

The book is a litany of tomfoolery episodes of Donald Trump’s time as president and an insight into the harm he is costing our American Way, or at least what might be left of it after his self-aggrandizing and screw up of the elements of government. It not only talks about his lack of competence; it also introduces us to his inbred hatred for others he realizes are more competent and better persons such as John McCain, the attitude of his ill-designed aids that believe eventually no one will be able to stop them and their self-interests upon re-election will give them free reign, hatred of anyone who criticizes at the president or his administration (and pro dictatorship systems of ruling), the president’s inattentiveness and carelessness and more, oh so much more ineptitude. Reasoned presentations on such topics of national security would get the president saying, “What the F*** is this it is just words.” Conclusion: The nation is in jeopardy. Anonymous likewise tells stories of how the staff, at least early in this administration, had to ignore his hateful and deficient orders in carrying out the president’s bad decisions, to the extent possible but those people are now more missing than present. We are up the creek and do not have a paddle.

About Anonymous remaining unidentified. Courage enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery is the result. Is it an issue that Anonymous does not come out with a full face and give further support to her/his personal imprimatur to the allegations? That may help us manage the Anonymous assuaged utter incompetence of both the president and his administration. According to Anonymous, the president is making a fool of his followers. The President believes, and for good reason, he can shovel any detritus (that’s a nice way of saying s***), at his base and they will take it as truth. He believes, and for good reason, they will not test his assertions in any Socratic manner. They will follow him like lemmings thinking he will deliver and in truth he cannot and therefore will not provide sustenance. He will continue to bankrupt America.

Chilling

An thorough presentation of the current political climate and the sentiment being shared behind closed doors. Finally first hand opinions that aren't censored thanks to anonymity. This piece helps to unveil the disturbing truths that are obfuscated by tweets, media attention spans, and carefully selected excerpts from the white house.

Essential study in Ethical Leadership

Will become an essential text book for how NOT to lead or serve future Presidents and leaders of major institutions. It reverses the assumptions Anonymous made in his Op-Ed by concluding the staff is powerless to protect the country from the inside by “managing” Trump’s worst impulses.

finally! A first hand account.

While I, along with many others think that the person who wrote this book is a coward for not putting his, or her name to it, I understand why this was done. consider the "child" that we have for a president. Like the author said in the book, The president is prone to attacking his rivals, in I believe to be mob like mentality. Judge for yourself.

JUST WATCH THE NEWS AND SAVE YOUR BOOK CREDIT

This book is written from the “this has already happened” viewpoint.

There is NOT ONE NEW CONCEPT revealed in this book.

If this “senior Trump official” knows so much, he is keeping it for the next book he may try to peddle in the future.

If you watch the news once a week, you’ll be ahead of “Anonymous”.

If you watch the news more than once a week, you could write your own book and provide more insight than this author has provided.

I admit I don’t like Trump. I did know that this author (or any other) would not be revealing any classified information, but this book is ridiculously scant of any information or news.

I expected some “insight”. I knew I would not get “secrets and classified information” - but I wrongly assumed there was some middle ground point. WRONG I WAS.

You might want to save your book credit and read any article or watch any news program - you’ll be ahead of Anonymous if you do.

This book is a total waste.
