Produktbeschreibung
After standing at Donald Trumps side on Election Night, Cliff Sims joined him in the West Wing as Special Assistant to the President and Director of White House Message Strategy. He soon found himself pulled into the Presidents inner circle as a confidante, errand boy, advisor, punching bag, and friendsometimes all in the same conversation.As a result, Sims gained unprecedented access to the President, sitting in on private meetings with key Congressional officials, world leaders, and top White House advisors. He saw how Trump handled the challenges of the office, and he learned from Trump himself how he saw the world.For five hundred days, Sims also witnessed first-hand the infighting and leaking, the anger, joy, and recriminations. He had a role in some of the Presidents biggest successes, and he shared the blame for some of his administrations worst disasters. He gained key, and often surprising, insights into the players of the Trump West Wing, from Kushner and Kelly to Bannon and Conway. He even helped Trump craft his enemies list. And he took notes. Hundreds of pages of notes.Sims now tells the story that no one else has writtenbecause no one else could. The story of power and palace intrigue, backstabbing and bold victories, as well as painful moral compromises, occasionally with yourself. Team of Vipers tells the full story, as only a true insider could.
Rezensionen
"Sims' book makes much of infighting among White House staff. "The whole thing felt like Game of Thrones, but with the characters from Veep," writes Sims" -Axios

"What is most memorable about Team of Vipers is the joylessness of working for this president and the acrid aftertaste it leaves." -The Guardian

"But like other accounts of the Trump White House written by former staff members or journalists, the narrative and anecdotes support much of the real-time reporting about the administration. Mr. Sims also writes that leaks by various staff members have been in service of creating specific portraits of events or undermining rivals. They have not always portrayed the full truth, he suggests." -The New York Times

"Sims, who enjoyed uncommon personal access to Trump, recounts expletive-filled scenes of chaos, dysfunction and duplicity among the president, his family members and administration officials. Unlike memoirs of other Trump officials, Sims's book is neither a sycophantic portrayal of the president nor a blistering account written to settle scores." -The Washington Post

"Some lively writing, but also has some extraordinary exchanges." -John Dickerson, Slate Political Gabfest
