And now the U.S. is asking the Taliban to spare its embassy in the capital city of Kabul with the anticipation of an upcoming fight for its control. Quite the mess to say the least. Where do we go from here? Everyone agrees that this solution isn't the best, yet no one has a solution that satisfies all those involved.

The barrage of books on Donald Trump continues. The Guardian newspaper counts as many as 4,500 tomes about the megalomaniac former US president, including nearly 20 that Trump claims to have written himself. In just the past few weeks, the huge opus of extended works on Trump has grown by three. Michael Wolf released Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency.  Michael Bender, the senior White House reporter for the Wall Street Journal, published a crisp and compelling account of the 2020 campaign from the perspective of Trump World called Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost. And Pulitzer-Prize winning Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker have offered I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year, which completes their chronicle of the Trump Presidency that began with A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump's Testing of America, in which they examined the first three years of Trump's term. (The authors spoke with Tom about the updated edition of that book on the February 26, 2021 Midday show.) Tom is taking a pass on the new Michael Wolf book. But he spoke with Mike Bender a couple of weeks ago about his experience in Trump World. And today, he welcomes back to Midday Carol Leonnig, to talk about this latest book that she and Philip Rucker have contributed to this vast oeuvre.   Leonnig and Rucker's books on the mercurial and self-obsessed 45th President are invaluable for the depth of their reporting, their thoroughness, and their first-rate analysis of one of the most divisive and unique figures in American politics. I Alone Can Fix It takes us behind the scenes of Trump's astonishingly inept handling of the Coronavirus pandemic, his losing effort to win a second term, his bungling of the Republican party's attempt to retain control of Congress, his second impeachment, and his culpability in the insurrection at the Capital that left several people dead, scores of police officers and rioters injured, and a country torn apart by partisanship that has wandered into a whole new realm of untruth and malicious fabrication. Carol Leonnig joined Tom earlier this week, speaking on our digital line from Washington, D.C.. Because their conversation was pre-recorded, we're not able to take any calls or on-line comments.

Sam and Emma host Carol Leonnig, national investigative reporter at the Washington Post, to discuss her recent book she co-authored with Phillip Rucker, I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year. They begin by stepping off Leonnig's and Rucker's previous work A Very Stable Genius, and how they were able to secure a sit down with Trump following his complete bashing of their last book. They look into his continued desire for an audience, not to mention an audience of his audience, and the maintenance of his three primary beliefs in his final year: that the 1/6 rioters were genuinely loving people, that BLM protesters were a clear existential threat, and that he, Donald Trump, was the clear winner of the 2020 election. Delving into the ladder, Sam, Emma, and Carol explore how Trump was able to convince both his base and himself of the election fraud, before moving onto his mishandling of the Coronavirus pandemic from the very start. They discuss his strategy of focusing on the battleground of the daily news cycle, taking every problem as a PR crisis, even as those close to him attempted to steer him towards practically tackling the pandemic to save his reelection. Carol then goes deep into the pressure on journalists, when it comes to Trump, to find the truth behind the truth, looking into what he and his administration actually believe, and why they genuinely take the actions they take, looking particularly into his clearing of Lafayette Square for a biblical photo op. They round out the interview by looking deeper into his administration, his enablers, and those that attempted to control his impulses, as well as the effect of his first three years on emboldening the worst of him. Sam and Emma conclude the free half by summarizing the vote-a-rama that took place on reconciliation, and Fox & Friends' realization that socialism is, indeed, popular. And in the Fun Half: Emma, Sam, and the MR crew chat about the over-saturation of media critique, the importance of a large-scale audience for MR, and follow up yesterdays “Ligma” variant discussion with an exploration of some of the worst, and best, of MR IMs. Then, a dear MR Discord Moderator calls in for some carpentry tips (surprisingly not asking Emma of Nazareth), before Sam and a caller talk civics versus ethics, and Chris from Minneapolis follows up a discussion on the Senate Dem's performative vote against “defund the police” by exploring what localities are actually doing, not just saying. Lastly, they look into the mob of parents chanting “child abuse” (unfortunately, not at themselves) at a Franklin, TN school board meeting on masks, plus, your calls and IMs!

Sen. Mitt Romney was warned ahead of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol that he might be the target of violence from supporters of former President Donald Trump. That warning came from fellow Sen. Angus King of Maine, who himself was alerted to possible violence by America's top military leaders. That's just one of the dozens of startling revelations contained in the new book “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year” by Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.Rucker says Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was alarmed by threats of violence on social media, so he gave Sen. King a heads up. “King then thought Mitt Romney is definitely a target. He's persona non grata for Trump world and MAGA supporters. King gave Romney a call who was at home with his wife,” Rucker says.Rucker and Leonnig spoke at length with Romney for their book. Romney told the pair he informed his wife, Ann, about the threats of violence as he prepared to return to Washington to certify Democrat Joe Biden's win in the 2020 election over Trump. Ann Romney pleaded with Mitt not to return to D.C., because it was too dangerous and his life could be at stake.“Mitt said he had to go back because it's his job and his duty. ‘Nothing is going to keep me from going, and by the way, I'll be safe in the U.S. Capitol. There's nothing that's going to happen to me there,' he told her,” Rucker said. Rucker says Romney was warned by his staffers on January 6 he had to get to safety as rioters broke into the Capitol. That led to the dramatic video of Romney running into Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman who told him to return to the Senate chamber because the rioters were just seconds away.“It's a chilling reminder of how close he came to real violence and potentially losing his life. He's the first person, maybe the second person behind Mike Pence, but one of the first people those rioters would have wanted to destroy,” Rucker says. Philip Rucker on Twitter: @PhilipRucker

The year 2020 brought with it a nation riddled with grief as the United States descended into a raging pandemic, steep economic downfall, and unsettling political instability. As half a million perished and millions were left jobless from coronavirus, what was really going on inside the White House? And who was influencing Donald Trump as he refused to concede power after an election he had clearly lost? Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker answer these questions for the American people in I Alone Can Fix It, a gripping exposé of an administration sabotaging its own country. Their sources were in the room as Trump and the key players around him—doctors, generals, senior advisors and family members—continued to prioritize the interests of the president over that of the country. These witnesses saw firsthand Trump's desire to deploy military force against protests in the wake of George Floyd's death. They saw his refusal to take coronavirus seriously, even to the point of allowing himself and those around him to be infected. They, along with the rest of the world, saw him spur on what would become the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol building. With unparalleled access, Rucker and Leonnig delve into exactly who they say enabled—and who foiled—the president as he desperately held onto his fleeting presidency in his final year in office. Join us as Leonnig and Rucker reveal the inner workings of the 2020 Trump White House. SPEAKERS Carol Leonnig Investigative Reporter, The Washington Post; Co-author, I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J.

David Priess sat down with Leonnig, a national investigative reporter at the Washington Post and author of “Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service,” and Rucker, the senior White House correspondent at the Washington Post and coauthor with Carol of the book, “A Very Stable Genius,” to talk about what they discovered in their book and their reporting. They discussed not only a few of the headline scoops, but also some lesser reported stories in their book, ranging from Trump's briefing before the U.S. strike that killed Iran's Qasem Soleimani, to Trump's attitude toward potential 2024 running mates, to what we've learned about the behavior of people around the president near the end of the administration, like Mark Milley, Bill Barr, Mark Meadows and Mike Pompeo.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare.
