Top Trump administration officials mulled a mass resignation last year to warn the public about President Trump's conduct, says a yet-to-be-released book obtained by the Washington Post.
But the group rejected plans for a "midnight self-massacre" because it would have further destabilized Trump's teetering government, says the book by "Anonymous."
The book, titled, "A Warning," is to be released Nov. 19, and on Thursday night had reached No. 4 on Amazon's best sellers list.
It says Trump has continued his well-known misogyny in the White House.
"He comments on makeup. He makes jokes about weight. He critiques clothing. He questions the toughness of women in and around his orbit," Anonymous says. "He uses words like 'sweetie' and 'honey' to address accomplished professionals. This is precisely the way a boss shouldn't act in the work environment."
The book's author is described as a "senior official in the Trump administration" famed for writing a Sept. 2018 New York Times op-ed that said people in the administration are "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations."
But "Anonymous" repudiates that part of the op-ed in his or her book, the Washington Post said.
"I was wrong about the 'quiet resistance' inside the Trump administration," Anonymous writes. "Unelected bureaucrats and cabinet appointees were never going to steer Donald Trump the right direction in the long run, or refine his malignant management style. He is who he is."
Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham released a statement late Thursday saying, "The coward who wrote this book didn't put their name on it because it is nothing but lies."
