Cliff Sims, author of White House exposé “Team of Vipers,” reacted on air to President Donald Trump’s predictable tweet insulting him and demeaning him as a “low level staffer.”
“Nice,” Sims said, smiling as CNN’s Alisyn Camerota read him the tweet. “There it is.”
“Look, I knew that was a possibility when I wrote the book,” he continued. “I said my identity isn’t wrapped up in being a Trump staffer. My identity is wrapped up in who I am in my faith. Those are things that matter to me. I know who Jesus says I am. Don’t matter to me what Donald Trump or anyone else says.”
A low level staffer that I hardly knew named Cliff Sims wrote yet another boring book based on made up stories and fiction. He pretended to be an insider when in fact he was nothing more than a gofer. He signed a non-disclosure agreement. He is a mess!
