Anonymous author likens Trump to a pantsless old man wreaking havoc at his nursing home

Several excerpts from A Warning, the upcoming book by a person who says they are a senior Trump administration official, were released on Thursday night, each one more damaging for the president.

A Warning is set to come out on Nov. 19, and the author — who wrote an op-ed for The New York Times last year, saying they were part of a resistance inside the White House — paints President Trump as a bumbling simpleton devoid of empathy and integrity. He's also a loose cannon, the author said, and staffers wake up in a "full-blown panic" over the things he says in early morning tweets.
