A scene from Michael Wolff's "Siege," coming Tuesday from Henry Holt: President Trump performed impressions of national security adviser H.R. McMaster, with "a droning voice and heavy breathing."

What they're saying: "[L]ike the last book, 'Siege' is ultimately crippled by three flaws," Ryan Lizza writes in his WashPost review.
