(CNN)A very important exchange happened Sunday night when legendary Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward sat down with "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley to talk about "Rage," his new book about President Donald Trump.

Woodward told Pelley that he came to the conclusion that the President "is the wrong man for the job" because of "overwhelming evidence that he could not rise to the occasion with the virus and tell the truth. "

As Woodward documents in his book, Trump knew that the virus was worse than he was publicly letting on as early as January.

Saying that Trump does not adhere to -- or even acknowledge -- known facts about a virus that is projected to kill, according to one model, more than 400,000 Americans by January 1, 2021, is not Woodward taking some sort of ideological position.
