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.”
