Woodward has come under some criticism for withholding his interviews with Trump for his book, as it could have raised alarms over a public health crisis.

What Trump is now engaged in — and the Hannity interview was the leading edge of this strategy — is a desperate attempt to downplay, de-legitimize and distract from the incredibly damaging allegations contained in Woodward’s book.
