Excellent piece by Ashley Parker for The Washington Post on Trump's treatment of staffers in the White House. My read is Trump belittles and berates in his authoritarian way.
This part, however, reads to me like complete bullshit:
“President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him,” Hope Hicks, a White House spokeswoman, said in a statement. “He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people, whether he is speaking to a room of three or an arena of 30,000. He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor . . . and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible.”
Trump doesn't strike me as a person with a "magnetic personality" that "exudes positive energy." But what do I know? I'm just a snowflake liberal.
