Donald Trump is currently freaking out over the fact that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bob Woodward’s new book has exposed some very damaging info about him. Trump has been slamming the book since its release and even spent a good part of this morning pathetically trying to debunk the book’s claims by tweeting quotes from his own administration members.
However, Trump’s attempts to convince everyone that the book’s claims are false have just been ruined, as more evidence proving Woodward right has emerged. One of the allegations in the tell-all book states that Trump had referred to his Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a “retard.” Considering the fact that Trump has actually imitated and mocked people who are disabled before, this is even more disgusting.
Trump, of course, is denying ever saying that word. Today, Trump tweeted:
The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions ‘mentally retarded’ and ‘a dumb southerner.’ I said NEITHER, never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff, and being a southerner is a GREAT thing. He made this up to divide!”

However, footage from the Howard Stern show (which Trump regularly appeared on) has just emerged. Discovered by Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star David Dale, transcripts from the show prove that Trump has, in fact, said it. Here’s a screenshot of the transcript:
And if Trump wants to keep denying it and claim the transcript is inaccurate, the actual footage has actually been found in which the POTUS himself can be seen uttering that word:
We can expect more confirmations of Woodward’s book to appear in the near future as the president desperately tries to shut the book down.
