...Context: N.Y. Times columnist Frank Bruni says "Donald Can't Quit Maggie," which pretty much sums it up.

- - - Trump, in the course of giving Haberman three interviews for this book, told aides: "I love being with her; she's like my psychiatrist."

Trump's obsession: He has called her "Maggot Haberman" and tweeted in 2018: "Maggie Haberman, a Hillary flunky, knows nothing about me and is not given access."

- - - In February, he repeated in a statement about the book that she "knows nothing about me."

What we're hearing: When there's a negative story in The Times, Trump privately calls it "Maggie's story"" no matter the author.

- - - Trump has been known to rant: "I never speak to her." Aides roll their eyes....
