Summary: "The story of Trump's ... last months at the helm of the country, based on [the author's] ... access to White House aides and to the former president himself, yielding a wealth of new information and insights about what really happened inside the highest office in the land, and the world"--
Wolff embedded himself in the White House in 2017 and his top-level access gave us a vivid picture of the chaos that had descended on Washington. In 2021 he found the Oval Office even more chaotic and bizarre. At all times of the day Trump, behind the Resolute desk, was surrounded by schemers and unqualified sycophants who spoon-feed him the "alternative facts" he hungered to hear about COVID-19, Black Lives Matter protests, and, most of all, his chance of winning reelection. As Trump entertained the idea of martial law and balked at calling off the insurrectionist mob that threatens the institution of democracy itself, we witness the desperation, duplicity, and delusion that was unfolding within the West Wing. -- adapted from jacket
