White House: Woodward’s Tapes Are Just From Disgruntled Ex-Employees

In an appearance on Good Morning America, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to put out the inferno raging from veteran reporter Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House. “Look, he may have hundreds of hours of tapes but I think those probably come from disgruntled former employees,” Sanders told George Stephanopoulos. “It’s a lot of anonymous sources. What I can tell you is: I’ve worked alongside the president—under the president—for the last three years. I was part of his campaign; I’ve been part of the administration, and everything I’ve seen so far from this book doesn’t depict what’s going on in the building behind me.” The acclaimed journalist’s reporting purports to give a behind-the-scenes look at the president’s inner circle, but Sanders denied its accuracy and instead focused on the positives. “What I see coming out of this building is pure and total success,” she added.
