The New York Times reports:
A firsthand account of the tumult inside President Trump’s White House is scheduled to be published in January, the latest in a string of books that seek to decipher his unprecedented presidency. The new book, “Team of Vipers,” is written by Cliff Sims, a former aide in the White House communications office who had previously worked on the Trump campaign.
“He saw how Trump handled the challenges of the office, and he learned from Trump himself how he saw the world,” Mr. Sims’s publisher, Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press, said in announcing the book. “His book offers never-revealed scenes from this most unorthodox of White Houses — and will stand as a definitive history of an unforgettable era.”
Sims, who oversaw message strategy in the White House and was viewed as a MAGA loyalist who clashed with staffers whose backgrounds were from the “establishment” Republican National Committee, left the White House in May. His exit was not mourned by many of his detractors in the White House communications department, who said they did not trust him.
If past is prologue, Sims is in for a lashing from the president when his book hits the shelves. When Manigault Newman published her tell-all earlier this year, Trump called her a “dog” and a “crazed, crying lowlife,” and accused her of violating a non-disclosure agreement she signed during the campaign.
Sims reportedly got a seven-figure advance from the publisher. So this should be fun.
