Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House Reviews

    Feb 07, 2019

    While there have been many tell-all books about the Trump White House, many seek only to create the largest bloodbath possible. Scorning President Trump and those around him proves to be a message that sells copies and helps to rile up the reading/general public. Enter Cliff Sims, whos...

    No, I have not read it. I have a problem with the title. It should be: CAUCUS OF CLOWNS. ...

    Because I am a lazy reader, I dislike unreliable narrators: they make me work too hard. True, if the writing be fiction, and the writer be greatly gifted (Twain, Nabokov, Kesey, Banville), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, ...

    This just in: everyone hates Donald Trump. Well, who'd a thunk it? ...

    Overall, pretty fucking boring. Sims, as you may know, is a fan of Trump. He spends some time rationalizing this at the beginning of the book, admitting he doesn't agree with Trump on a lot of things because Sims is a conservative with strong Christian values, but then admitting th...

    Self aggrandizement. Sensation-junkie. BL..OOOO...DY....BORING! For the life of me couldn't finish this one. ...

    I honestly don't think I can recommend giving this book your money, especially if you're a liberal/progressive spending on this solely to ratchet its standing up the bestseller lists as a symbolic up-yours to Trump. The author is in most ways still a Trump sympathizer, looking to make ...

    Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House by Cliff Sims is a book I picked up from the library. I am glad I didn't pay for it. I thought it would give some good insights into the craziness that goes on but I think I have learned more from the occasional whistle...

    Cliff Sims is a 20-something wonderkind from Alabama, where he was the CEO of a media company. In 2016, he had broken the story - complete with audio tapes - of the affair the state's governor, Robert Bentley had been having with his (much younger) assistant, Rebekah Mason. Bentley ult...

    Lot of hypocrisy and nonsense from a conservative christian, son and grandson of ministers, who believes no matter how wicked Trump is, he?s better than Mrs Clinton. The author revels in Trump?s foulness, defending him at every turn, while paying fake service to his own twisted mor...

    I HAVE READ THE BOOK. I can?t even explain how dumb this book is. He had to go through 15 months in the Trump White House to learn some pretty basic and trite life-lessons? Cutthroat Washington surprised him? His most important event was when the Alabama football team came to the Whi...

    What are the biggest mistakes one makes in dealing with 'DT'? Taking him at his word, believing he is credible and or believable, feeling he is superior and knowledgeable, thinking his character is decent albeit reckless and impulsive at times. I went into this reading thinking this ...

    First of all, I'm no fan of Trump. My thoughts about the book are, inevitably, colored by that. The book is fun to read and a quick read, packed with anecdotes and the author's take on the WH personalities. It is by far the most flattering take on the current WH that I've seen, and the...

    I can't stand this author. He had his reasons for working for Trump, and his goals are opposed to mine for the country. He is a rightwing religious freak who supported Trump's agenda and is happy about Trump's accomplishments that I can't stand. However, this book to some degree hum...

    Meh. This is a mixed bag and not quite what I expected. If the author hates you, you're a viper. If he likes you or thought you were kind to him, you get a pass as a good person, even lying Sarah. At first it was fun to read, revisiting all those names now long gone from the WH scene, ...

    IT?s ALL ABOUT ME This is , perhaps, one of the oddest books I?ve ever read. Hardly being a Trump fan, I was looking forward to details about Trump?s daily maneuvers. Cliff Sims makes him into a god. He?s also a prime example of a know it all. Some how the author ingratiated...

    A REVIEW FROM SOMEONE WHO'S ACTUALLY READ THE BOOK! I pre-ordered this, and pretty much devoured it over the course of last night and this morning (allowing for a few hours of sleep). I wanted to read the tell all written by someone who supports Trump and his platform, and was willi...

    While there are some interesting ground-level tidbits from this book, I will admit to feeling dirty after buying and reading it. Sims is so self-serving in his account that it's hard to take him seriously. It's clear from some of his stories that he was a prime leaker to the press corp...

    DNF. I just couldn't with this one. I love dishy anecdotes about the Trump administration (why not take what amusement I can from this otherwise soul-crushing era we're living in?), but this guy was just too all-in on Republican values for me to listen to for 14+ hours. I liked Omarosa...

    I actually read the book and this is what it is: The author is a Conservative Republican who is cool with all of the administration?s agenda, and when Trump?s deportment crosses his Christian values, he consoles himself that it?s better than Hillary being president. He contin...

    How does one justify bringing down one politician for adultery only to end up working for Trump? Then this author talks as if it was his morals that led him to both decisions Incredible gaslighting that is all so familiar these days. ...

    Saw the interview with Cliff Sims on Morning Joe. He comes off as genuine and has a very interesting point of view. I just want to understand the persona that Trump puts out and the machine behind it. ...

    Right wing theocrat who has no problem ripping babies from their moms and separating them in kids prisons on the border has gripes with a douche bag of a President because he was unceremoniously blocked from a move out of the white house to the dept of State amn then basically fired fr...

    Ex-Trump staffer?s book describes 'Team of Vipers? ...

    TEAM OF VIPERS. (2019). Cliff Sims. ***. I?ve gotten hooked on reading these ?inside? books on how the Trump organization operates. The problem is that you start out with ex-high-level administration people telling all, to hardly recognizable support staff giving us all a peek a...

    Whether you love Trump or hate him, don't waste your time reading this book, its only redeeming value is that it brings us together, makes everyone's blood boil, regardless of political affiliations. If you do read it, you might take some anti-nausea medication; this man is agnostic in...

    Can't remember reading a book by an author quite so self-delusional. He puts words in Individual #1's mouth that do not fit. Eloquent, articulate words of self-praise. Sims thinks he's writing about how I#1 was betrayed by the vipers around him...and he occasionally dips into a bit of ...

    Very interesting details on the corruption of the White House office handling security clearances. Totally venal and incompetent. Author sees the utter disaster of the two plus years of Trump wreckage, but blames everyone but Trump. This is the sad story of a MAGA true believer, who ca...

    I really don?t know where to go with this book. One the one hand it?s a well told tale of the utterly toxic environment that exists in this White House these days, on the other it?s a nauseatingly kiss-ass tell-all that never addresses the real problem at the heart of this situat...

    Still haven?t read it, but giving it a five-star rating to balance out the right-wing ?reviewers? who won?t accept the truth. Cliff Sims seems to be more honest than Omarosa, so he?s probably (very likely, actually) telling the truth in the book. ...

    DNF. I just couldn't with this one. I love dishy anecdotes about the Trump administration (why not take what amusement I can from this otherwise soul-crushing era we're living in?), but this guy was just too all-in on Republican values for me to listen to for 14+ hours. I liked Omarosa...

    I actually read the book and this is what it is: The author is a Conservative Republican who is cool with all of the administration?s agenda, and when Trump?s deportment crosses his Christian values, he consoles himself that it?s better than Hillary being president. He contin...

    How does one justify bringing down one politician for adultery only to end up working for Trump? Then this author talks as if it was his morals that led him to both decisions Incredible gaslighting that is all so familiar these days. ...

    Saw the interview with Cliff Sims on Morning Joe. He comes off as genuine and has a very interesting point of view. I just want to understand the persona that Trump puts out and the machine behind it. ...

    Right wing theocrat who has no problem ripping babies from their moms and separating them in kids prisons on the border has gripes with a douche bag of a President because he was unceremoniously blocked from a move out of the white house to the dept of State amn then basically fired fr...

    Ex-Trump staffer?s book describes 'Team of Vipers? ...

    TEAM OF VIPERS. (2019). Cliff Sims. ***. I?ve gotten hooked on reading these ?inside? books on how the Trump organization operates. The problem is that you start out with ex-high-level administration people telling all, to hardly recognizable support staff giving us all a peek a...

    While there have been many tell-all books about the Trump White House, many seek only to create the largest bloodbath possible. Scorning President Trump and those around him proves to be a message that sells copies and helps to rile up the reading/general public. Enter Cliff Sims, whos...

    No, I have not read it. I have a problem with the title. It should be: CAUCUS OF CLOWNS. ...

    Because I am a lazy reader, I dislike unreliable narrators: they make me work too hard. True, if the writing be fiction, and the writer be greatly gifted (Twain, Nabokov, Kesey, Banville), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, ...

    This just in: everyone hates Donald Trump. Well, who'd a thunk it? ...

    Overall, pretty fucking boring. Sims, as you may know, is a fan of Trump. He spends some time rationalizing this at the beginning of the book, admitting he doesn't agree with Trump on a lot of things because Sims is a conservative with strong Christian values, but then admitting th...

    I honestly don't think I can recommend giving this book your money, especially if you're a liberal/progressive spending on this solely to ratchet its standing up the bestseller lists as a symbolic up-yours to Trump. The author is in most ways still a Trump sympathizer, looking to make ...

    Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House by Cliff Sims is a book I picked up from the library. I am glad I didn't pay for it. I thought it would give some good insights into the craziness that goes on but I think I have learned more from the occasional whistle...

    Cliff Sims is a 20-something wonderkind from Alabama, where he was the CEO of a media company. In 2016, he had broken the story - complete with audio tapes - of the affair the state's governor, Robert Bentley had been having with his (much younger) assistant, Rebekah Mason. Bentley ult...

    Lot of hypocrisy and nonsense from a conservative christian, son and grandson of ministers, who believes no matter how wicked Trump is, he?s better than Mrs Clinton. The author revels in Trump?s foulness, defending him at every turn, while paying fake service to his own twisted mor...

    I HAVE READ THE BOOK. I can?t even explain how dumb this book is. He had to go through 15 months in the Trump White House to learn some pretty basic and trite life-lessons? Cutthroat Washington surprised him? His most important event was when the Alabama football team came to the Whi...

    What are the biggest mistakes one makes in dealing with 'DT'? Taking him at his word, believing he is credible and or believable, feeling he is superior and knowledgeable, thinking his character is decent albeit reckless and impulsive at times. I went into this reading thinking this ...

    First of all, I'm no fan of Trump. My thoughts about the book are, inevitably, colored by that. The book is fun to read and a quick read, packed with anecdotes and the author's take on the WH personalities. It is by far the most flattering take on the current WH that I've seen, and the...

    I can't stand this author. He had his reasons for working for Trump, and his goals are opposed to mine for the country. He is a rightwing religious freak who supported Trump's agenda and is happy about Trump's accomplishments that I can't stand. However, this book to some degree hum...

    Meh. This is a mixed bag and not quite what I expected. If the author hates you, you're a viper. If he likes you or thought you were kind to him, you get a pass as a good person, even lying Sarah. At first it was fun to read, revisiting all those names now long gone from the WH scene, ...

    IT?s ALL ABOUT ME This is , perhaps, one of the oddest books I?ve ever read. Hardly being a Trump fan, I was looking forward to details about Trump?s daily maneuvers. Cliff Sims makes him into a god. He?s also a prime example of a know it all. Some how the author ingratiated...

    While there are some interesting ground-level tidbits from this book, I will admit to feeling dirty after buying and reading it. Sims is so self-serving in his account that it's hard to take him seriously. It's clear from some of his stories that he was a prime leaker to the press corp...

    DNF. I just couldn't with this one. I love dishy anecdotes about the Trump administration (why not take what amusement I can from this otherwise soul-crushing era we're living in?), but this guy was just too all-in on Republican values for me to listen to for 14+ hours. I liked Omarosa...

    How does one justify bringing down one politician for adultery only to end up working for Trump? Then this author talks as if it was his morals that led him to both decisions Incredible gaslighting that is all so familiar these days. ...

    Saw the interview with Cliff Sims on Morning Joe. He comes off as genuine and has a very interesting point of view. I just want to understand the persona that Trump puts out and the machine behind it. ...

    Cliff Sims is a 20-something wonderkind from Alabama, where he was the CEO of a media company. In 2016, he had broken the story - complete with audio tapes - of the affair the state's governor, Robert Bentley had been having with his (much younger) assistant, Rebekah Mason. Bentley ult...

    I HAVE READ THE BOOK. I can?t even explain how dumb this book is. He had to go through 15 months in the Trump White House to learn some pretty basic and trite life-lessons? Cutthroat Washington surprised him? His most important event was when the Alabama football team came to the Whi...

    TEAM OF VIPERS. (2019). Cliff Sims. ***. I?ve gotten hooked on reading these ?inside? books on how the Trump organization operates. The problem is that you start out with ex-high-level administration people telling all, to hardly recognizable support staff giving us all a peek a...

    Whether you love Trump or hate him, don't waste your time reading this book, its only redeeming value is that it brings us together, makes everyone's blood boil, regardless of political affiliations. If you do read it, you might take some anti-nausea medication; this man is agnostic in...

    Can't remember reading a book by an author quite so self-delusional. He puts words in Individual #1's mouth that do not fit. Eloquent, articulate words of self-praise. Sims thinks he's writing about how I#1 was betrayed by the vipers around him...and he occasionally dips into a bit of ...

    Very interesting details on the corruption of the White House office handling security clearances. Totally venal and incompetent. Author sees the utter disaster of the two plus years of Trump wreckage, but blames everyone but Trump. This is the sad story of a MAGA true believer, who ca...

    I really don?t know where to go with this book. One the one hand it?s a well told tale of the utterly toxic environment that exists in this White House these days, on the other it?s a nauseatingly kiss-ass tell-all that never addresses the real problem at the heart of this situat...

    I can't stand this author. He had his reasons for working for Trump, and his goals are opposed to mine for the country. He is a rightwing religious freak who supported Trump's agenda and is happy about Trump's accomplishments that I can't stand. However, this book to some degree hum...

    Meh. This is a mixed bag and not quite what I expected. If the author hates you, you're a viper. If he likes you or thought you were kind to him, you get a pass as a good person, even lying Sarah. At first it was fun to read, revisiting all those names now long gone from the WH scene, ...

    IT?s ALL ABOUT ME This is , perhaps, one of the oddest books I?ve ever read. Hardly being a Trump fan, I was looking forward to details about Trump?s daily maneuvers. Cliff Sims makes him into a god. He?s also a prime example of a know it all. Some how the author ingratiated...

    A REVIEW FROM SOMEONE WHO'S ACTUALLY READ THE BOOK! I pre-ordered this, and pretty much devoured it over the course of last night and this morning (allowing for a few hours of sleep). I wanted to read the tell all written by someone who supports Trump and his platform, and was willi...

    While there are some interesting ground-level tidbits from this book, I will admit to feeling dirty after buying and reading it. Sims is so self-serving in his account that it's hard to take him seriously. It's clear from some of his stories that he was a prime leaker to the press corp...

    While there have been many tell-all books about the Trump White House, many seek only to create the largest bloodbath possible. Scorning President Trump and those around him proves to be a message that sells copies and helps to rile up the reading/general public. Enter Cliff Sims, whos...

    No, I have not read it. I have a problem with the title. It should be: CAUCUS OF CLOWNS. ...

    Because I am a lazy reader, I dislike unreliable narrators: they make me work too hard. True, if the writing be fiction, and the writer be greatly gifted (Twain, Nabokov, Kesey, Banville), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, ...

    This just in: everyone hates Donald Trump. Well, who'd a thunk it? ...

    Overall, pretty fucking boring. Sims, as you may know, is a fan of Trump. He spends some time rationalizing this at the beginning of the book, admitting he doesn't agree with Trump on a lot of things because Sims is a conservative with strong Christian values, but then admitting th...

    I honestly don't think I can recommend giving this book your money, especially if you're a liberal/progressive spending on this solely to ratchet its standing up the bestseller lists as a symbolic up-yours to Trump. The author is in most ways still a Trump sympathizer, looking to make ...

    Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House by Cliff Sims is a book I picked up from the library. I am glad I didn't pay for it. I thought it would give some good insights into the craziness that goes on but I think I have learned more from the occasional whistle...

    Cliff Sims is a 20-something wonderkind from Alabama, where he was the CEO of a media company. In 2016, he had broken the story - complete with audio tapes - of the affair the state's governor, Robert Bentley had been having with his (much younger) assistant, Rebekah Mason. Bentley ult...

    Lot of hypocrisy and nonsense from a conservative christian, son and grandson of ministers, who believes no matter how wicked Trump is, he?s better than Mrs Clinton. The author revels in Trump?s foulness, defending him at every turn, while paying fake service to his own twisted mor...

    I HAVE READ THE BOOK. I can?t even explain how dumb this book is. He had to go through 15 months in the Trump White House to learn some pretty basic and trite life-lessons? Cutthroat Washington surprised him? His most important event was when the Alabama football team came to the Whi...

    DNF. I just couldn't with this one. I love dishy anecdotes about the Trump administration (why not take what amusement I can from this otherwise soul-crushing era we're living in?), but this guy was just too all-in on Republican values for me to listen to for 14+ hours. I liked Omarosa...

    I actually read the book and this is what it is: The author is a Conservative Republican who is cool with all of the administration?s agenda, and when Trump?s deportment crosses his Christian values, he consoles himself that it?s better than Hillary being president. He contin...

    How does one justify bringing down one politician for adultery only to end up working for Trump? Then this author talks as if it was his morals that led him to both decisions Incredible gaslighting that is all so familiar these days. ...

    Whether you love Trump or hate him, don't waste your time reading this book, its only redeeming value is that it brings us together, makes everyone's blood boil, regardless of political affiliations. If you do read it, you might take some anti-nausea medication; this man is agnostic in...

    Can't remember reading a book by an author quite so self-delusional. He puts words in Individual #1's mouth that do not fit. Eloquent, articulate words of self-praise. Sims thinks he's writing about how I#1 was betrayed by the vipers around him...and he occasionally dips into a bit of ...

    Very interesting details on the corruption of the White House office handling security clearances. Totally venal and incompetent. Author sees the utter disaster of the two plus years of Trump wreckage, but blames everyone but Trump. This is the sad story of a MAGA true believer, who ca...
