The White House chief of staff, John Kelly, was so incensed by the behavior of Donald Trump that he privately described the president to other aides as an “idiot” and complained that they were in “Crazytown”, according to an incendiary new account of Trump’s presidency.
The unflattering portrait of Trump’s White House, in which the president is portrayed as being so gripped by paranoia over the ongoing Russian investigation that he is barely able to operate, is contained in Fear, the much-awaited book by Bob Woodward. A copy of the book was obtained days before its official release, by the Washington Post, which reported on several of its most arresting details on Tuesday.

I tend to believe Woodward: He's a pro and does his research. The only way his critics could be right about any of their claims, is if there was a massive conspiracy of many, many sources to lie to him. I don't believe such a massive conspiracy is possible without it's existence leaking.
Just based on their history of "crying wolf" we can guess who is lying, and it's not Bob Woodward.
Woodward has confirmed: He interviewed hundreds of insiders and has tapes. He even released a tape of him talking with the President about being denied a chance to talk with Trump directly, in which he catches the President in yet another lie!
Trump is WAY over his head attacking Bob Woodward just like he is way over his head dealing with Mueller.
