It's common knowledge that politicians often misconstrue the truth and occasionally even lie, but it wasn't until the campaign and election of President Donald Trump that outright lies from the head of the executive branch and those serving him became the new normal.

Not only does Trump lie (6,240 times since his inauguration at last count), but he freely repeats the lies as well with the assurance that his base will believe him over the journalists he's spent the last three years vilifying.

President Donald Trump began an all out assault against respected investigative journalist and author Bob Woodward in advance of his latest book—Fear: Trump in the White House. Other members of the family and of the Trump administration soon joined in.

The latest to try to discredit Woodward is the President's second son with first wife Ivana Trump, Eric Trump. He currently serves as Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization.

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward took to the Today Show to promote his new book Fear: Trump in the White House which hits shelves tomorrow.

The book, based on hundreds of hours of taped interviews and leaked documents, paints a portrait of a president drowning, with his staff believing him so incompetent that he can't be trusted to run the country.

Award winning investigative reporter Bob Woodward recently announced a new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, covering the latest resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Woodward gleaned the material from "interviews with first-hand sources caught on hundreds of hours of tape" as well as "meeting notes, files, documents and personal diaries."

But President Donald Trump appeared unhappy to receive the Woodward treatment. He launched a Twitter campaign blasting Woodward and got signed statements from several of his remaining White House senior staff disavowing any participation in the book.

President Donald Trump is reportedly scrambling in an effort to minimize the damage of renowned journalist Bob Woodward's new book Fear: Trump in the White House. Despite repeated attempts from Trump and White House officials to discredit the piece, it's built on hundreds of hours of interviews with White House officials—and they're on tape.

Though White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's attempts to paint Woodward's sources as disgruntled employees, Woodward insists that many are still working in the White House. And though he may not admit it, the president seems to know that too.

While President Donald Trump peppered his Twitter feed and interviews with attempts to discredit Bob Woodward and his new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, more excerpts came out. The latest involves Trump and his reaction to the violence at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017.

One person—Heather Heyer—died and 19 others injured when a 20-year-old man with ties to white supremacist groups drove his car into a crowd of counter protesters. Trump's initial reaction infamously blamed "many sides."
