It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in crazytown,” Kelly reportedly said in a meeting.That led to a slew of “crazytown” tweets, including these:Ed Hall, a political cartoonist, depicted a White House turned madhouse.Nick Bryant, BBC’s New York correspondent, complained that a CNN graphic about Woodward’s book didn’t have enough room for “crazytown.”As well as this:And this:And this:Things are not all fun and games, at least for officials in Washington, DC. As CNN’s chief national security correspondent pointed out, Trump’s aides are so worried about the US president’s behavior that they’re literally stealing papers off his desk to “protect the country.”In the prologue to Woodward’s book, obtained by The Atlantic, Gary Cohn, the former White House economic advisor, swiped a letter from the president’s desk terminating the free trade agreement with South Korea. Cohn considered it a danger to national security.“I stole it off his desk,” Cohn reportedly said. “I wouldn’t let him see it. He’s never going to see that document. Got to protect the country.”One day after excerpts from Woodward’s forthcoming book revealed details about the distrust within Trump’s inner circle and the chaos that consumes the White House, The New York Times published an op-ed from an anonymous “senior official,” who admitted that many of the senior officials “are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda.” The act of sabotage is being described by some as a “soft coup.”What is clear from “crazytown” is that the White House is at war with itself, at least if Woodward’s book and The Times op-ed are to be believed, creating what the anonymous op-ed author describes as a “two-track presidency,” with the government running on one track and the US president running on the other.That certainly seems to fit the definition of “crazytown.”var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Bianji, Wu Chengliang)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9498107;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingTrump angry at explosive bookU.S. Attorney General appointed for his “loyalty”: TrumpWe RecommendChinas DJI releases Mavic 2 Pro drone in New York
