Woodward: Dowd Told Trump He Couldn't Testify To Mueller, Calling Him 'Disabled'

Bob Woodward shared more details from an episode between President Donald Trump and his former lawyer John Dowd, in which Dowd pulls no punches in telling Trump why he can’t sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

According to Woodward’s book “Fear,” Dowd told Trump that he’d be “fitted for an orange jumpsuit” if he testified.

“Trump goes ballistic, makes things up, starts screaming- Dowd thought had he been Mueller, he would have been fired right on the spot,” Woodward told late night host Stephen Colbert on Monday. “‘You can’t testify. You- you are disabled.’ I mean, imagine the lawyer- your lawyer, telling you you’re disabled. ‘And you can’t testify because you can’t tell the truth. You just make things up!’”

As Woodward writes to end the book: “Dowd knew he couldn’t bring himself to say to the President, ‘You’re a fucking liar.’”

1. republicans embrace Dirty Donny* because he lies

lying and FAKE reality have emerged as some of the core republican family values, a degenerate collection of crapola lowlife ideas that also includes greed, cowardice, and betrayal of the USA.

4. Calling him disabled makes him a sympathetic character

he deserves scorn and disdain and all the contempt we can give him because he's a colossal asshole. It would be an insult to disabled people to call him disabled.
