Rupert Murdoch 'called Donald Trump a f****** idiot', claims new book

Source: Independent

The book reveals a myriad of behind-the-scenes stories about Mr Trump and the West Wing

According to a new book about the administration of Donald Trump, longtime friend and NewsCorp executive Rupert Murdoch called the President a “f****** idiot.”

Michael Wolff’s book is called Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House and details a myriad of behind-the-scenes stories regarding the current White House and America’s controversial leader from Election Night 2016 until this past October.

Mr Murdoch reportedly made the comment during a phone call on 16 December 2016, about one month before Mr Trump took office.

Those on the call were discussing Mr Trump’s strategy towards H1B visa holders, a special category that allows select immigrants to stay in the country largely working in the technology sector and Silicon Valley.

1. Tillerson was kinder to him, calling him a moron, which is a higher classification than idiot.

Edited to add: I guess it's time for someone to call him an imbecile, which is the middle classification.

4. I disagree...

I'd say he called the President a “*ucking" idiot.”

It's 2018. We can use fewer asterisks now.
