Legendary Journalist Carl Bernstein Goes in On Trump: ‘The Wheels Are Coming Off’

Carl Bernstein has seen it all in Washington. But the venerable journalist who’s spent a lifetime in the Beltway says he hasn’t seen anything quite like the Trump administration.

Appearing on New Day Friday, the man who makes up one half of the most famous reporting tandem in American history talked about the current state of affairs in the White House. And the picture he painted spells doom for President Donald Trump.

“What there is a sense of, people I talk to in the White House and Republicans on Capitol Hill, is that the wheels are coming off the presidency,” Woodward said.

Bernstein’s reporting reveals that Trump’s inner circle’s goal right now is simply to try to save the President from himself.

“There is an attempt by those closest to the President…to try to constrain the president from his own inclinations to say wild things, to act irresponsibly,” Bernstein said. He added, “It’s almost as if there’s a protectorate around the President. He’s constantly complaining, going into rages about the investigation, about disloyalty among his aides. It’s an extraordinary situation. Unlike anything I have seen in 50 years in Washington.”
