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

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, and the wr...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    70% praising Trump; 20% criticizing his colleagues; 10% faux self reflection. At least it?s pretty well written. ...

    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?ll admit I read this book because I dislike Trump and wanted to be able to laugh about the discord behind the scenes. Not exactly a laudable motivation, but there it is. If you?re like me, this is not worth your time. Honestly, I don?t know that this is worth ANYONE?S time. S...

    Rear covering snivel from a Trump fanboy, apologist, and spin doctor. Some insightful anecdotes, but by and large an exercise in finger pointing and CYA by a sycophant who now has his own consulting business. ...

    This book, by Cliff Sims, yet another former Trump staffer, the director of media strategy, does more to explain the administration?s lack of media strategy or ability to message than give real insight to anything behind the scenes. His shallow skill set, and the superficial level of...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    70% praising Trump; 20% criticizing his colleagues; 10% faux self reflection. At least it?s pretty well written. ...

    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?ll admit I read this book because I dislike Trump and wanted to be able to laugh about the discord behind the scenes. Not exactly a laudable motivation, but there it is. If you?re like me, this is not worth your time. Honestly, I don?t know that this is worth ANYONE?S time. S...

    Rear covering snivel from a Trump fanboy, apologist, and spin doctor. Some insightful anecdotes, but by and large an exercise in finger pointing and CYA by a sycophant who now has his own consulting business. ...

    This book, by Cliff Sims, yet another former Trump staffer, the director of media strategy, does more to explain the administration?s lack of media strategy or ability to message than give real insight to anything behind the scenes. His shallow skill set, and the superficial level of...

    Reading this book reminded me of what a good read Robert Woodward's "Fear" was. Smoothly written and organized, well informed and with one eye always on the reader, it's an entertaining book, and one eye on history, a careful documentation of the first chaotic years of the Trump Admini...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, and the wr...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    This book, by Cliff Sims, yet another former Trump staffer, the director of media strategy, does more to explain the administration?s lack of media strategy or ability to message than give real insight to anything behind the scenes. His shallow skill set, and the superficial level of...

    Reading this book reminded me of what a good read Robert Woodward's "Fear" was. Smoothly written and organized, well informed and with one eye always on the reader, it's an entertaining book, and one eye on history, a careful documentation of the first chaotic years of the Trump Admini...

    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...

    Well, I finished it. The author is a true believer in Trump and what he has been doing to the country for the last 2 years, which can not help but color my reaction to this book. He honestly believes that the tax bill passed in 2017 was "tax reform" rather than a gift to the wealthy. H...

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

    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 ...

    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), I may decide to enter?and joyfully enter?into their world. But if the writing is a memoir, and the wr...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    70% praising Trump; 20% criticizing his colleagues; 10% faux self reflection. At least it?s pretty well written. ...

    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?ll admit I read this book because I dislike Trump and wanted to be able to laugh about the discord behind the scenes. Not exactly a laudable motivation, but there it is. If you?re like me, this is not worth your time. Honestly, I don?t know that this is worth ANYONE?S time. S...

    Rear covering snivel from a Trump fanboy, apologist, and spin doctor. Some insightful anecdotes, but by and large an exercise in finger pointing and CYA by a sycophant who now has his own consulting business. ...

    This book, by Cliff Sims, yet another former Trump staffer, the director of media strategy, does more to explain the administration?s lack of media strategy or ability to message than give real insight to anything behind the scenes. His shallow skill set, and the superficial level of...

    Reading this book reminded me of what a good read Robert Woodward's "Fear" was. Smoothly written and organized, well informed and with one eye always on the reader, it's an entertaining book, and one eye on history, a careful documentation of the first chaotic years of the Trump Admini...
