President Donald Trump denied making fun of Jeff Sessions for being a southerner on Tuesday, despite frustration with his Attorney General.
“I said NEITHER, never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff, and being a southerner is a GREAT thing,” Trump said. “He made this up to divide!”
Journalist Bob Woodward’s new book cites a source that says Trump referred to Sessions as “a dumb southerner” and “mentally retarded.”
Trump pointed out that the Woodward book was “already discredited” and suggested the author was trying to disrupt the midterms.
The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded” and “a dumb southerner.” I said NEITHER, never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff, and being a southerner is a GREAT thing. He made this up to divide!

The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?
