One can only guess why Donald Trump thought it was a good idea to hop on the phone and conduct a series of recorded interviews with author and investigative journalist Bob Woodward, a man who many credit with blowing up Richard Nixon. Even more curious is why he though anyone (Woodward in particular) would lend a sympathetic ear to his “explanation” of how he knew early on the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, but chose instead to gaslight the country.
