Trump Defends ‘Tough As Hell’ Management Style Amid Woodward Report: ‘Nothing Would Get Done’
Lots of chatter about Bob Woodward’s new book from the chattering class today, most of which focuses on President Donald Trump’s reported harsh management style. But after suggesting a look at libel laws because of what he sees as false reporting, he then tweeted what some may see as a confirmation of his so-called “harrowing” treatment of senior White House staffers.
Among the highlights (or lowlights depending on one’s political persuasion) revealed in Woodward’s book Fear, are numerous examples of a petulant and name-calling Commander-in-Chief who spared no one in his tempestuous treatment.
But in the context of multiple headlines and cable news segments, Trump appears to admit some of it might be true?
Almost everyone agrees that my Administration has done more in less than two years than any other Administration in the history of our Country. I’m tough as hell on people & if I weren’t, nothing would get done. Also, I question everybody & everything-which is why I got elected!

Nattering nabobs of negativism will see this tweet of evidence of a delusional and unhinged president. Supporters of this administration may see his management more in the mold of another famous New York developer, Robert Moses, who famously said that you cannot make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
