The man who wrote the already infamous book ‘Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House,’ took quite a beating from the president’s legal team Thursday as he was served with a cease and desist letter calling for the immediate stop to the print and publish of that book.
The book, due to be released Friday, is jam-packed full of things Trump doesn’t want anyone to read.
Now, Michael Wolff is fighting back. The soon-to-be NY Times best seller, according to Google, is an “American author, essayist, and journalist, and a regular columnist and contributor to USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, and the UK edition of GQ” has responded to Trump’s attack.
Wolff tweeted the following after being threatened with a lawsuit from the president of the United States:
Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.

Ouch. Trump is going to wig out.
Steve Bannon apparently lent his White House knowledge to writing the book, producing some very insane excerpts that were released to the press early. Those excerpts include the following, according to NY Daily News:
On wanting to be president:
“Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching.”
Ivanka & Jared:
“The (couple) had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”
“I got as far as the Fourth Amendment before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head.”
“Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration. He was angry that A-level stars had snubbed the event, disgruntled with the accommodations at Blair House, and visibly fighting with his wife, who seemed on the verge of tears.”
“Trump conceived an early, obsessive antipathy for Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. She was, he steamed, ‘such a c—.’”
“Trump liked to say that one of the things that made life worth living was getting your friends’ wives into bed. In pursuing a friend’s wife, he would try to persuade the wife that her husband was perhaps not what she thought. Then he’d have his secretary ask the friend into his office; once the friend arrived, Trump would engage in what was, for him, more or less constant sexual banter. ‘Do you still like having sex with your wife? How often? You must have had a better f— than your wife? Tell me about it. I have girls coming in from Los Angeles at three o’clock. We can go upstairs and have a great time. I promise …’ All the while, Trump would have his friend’s wife on the speakerphone, listening in.”
White House Aides:
“For (Treasury Secretary) Steve Mnuchin and (former Trump White House chief of staff) Reince Priebus, the president was an ‘idiot.’ For (former Goldman Sachs exec) Gary Cohn, he was ‘dumb as sh-t.’ For (National Security Adviser) H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’ The list went on.”
“It’s worse than you can imagine. An idiot surrounded by clowns. Trump won’t read anything — not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers; nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored. And his staff is no better. Kushner is an entitled baby who knows nothing. Bannon is an arrogant p—k who thinks he’s smarter than he is. Trump is less a person than a collection of terrible traits … I am in a constant state of terror and shock,” the email said, according to “Fire and Fury.”
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade.”
“She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray. The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond color,” according to page 79 of “Fire and Fury.”
The internet’s reaction to Wolff’s tweet says it all. Here are a few of the best responses:
