Michael D’Antonio knows quite a bit about Donald Trump and what makes him tick. The author wrote a biogrpahy about the president titled, The Truth About Trump, back in 2016. For the book, D’Antonio interview Ivana Trump, Marla Maples, Donald Trump Jr. and the president’s coach and drill sergeant from New York Military Academy.The author came away from the experience quite unimpressed with Trump. And nothing in the last four years has changed his mind. During a recent interview with Boris Sanchez, D’Antonio told the CNN host that Trump “cannot even succeed at being a loser.’
When asked about Trump’s post election behavior, the author responded, “This buffoonery, and actually I think it’s cruelty as well, as you noted, there were Americans who literally died in the moments that the president was giving us that horrific display. It’s all consistent with who he is and who he has always been. He is a profoundly incompetent person, a loser you might say. He is so incompetent that he cannot even succeed at being a loser.”
D’Antonio continued, “He’s failing at this essential task which all men face at some point in their lives. We all lose at various moments. And he can’t man up and do the mature thing and do the right thing by the country. Which is acknowledge that the system worked. That there was no fraud. That our democracy is strong and that our institutions have held.
