With the latest allegations being made in Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, the Donald has been stomping around on Twitter tweet-screaming his frustrations and accusations of fake news.
In the new book, several explosive allegations are made about the president including his lack of knowledge and a complete disinterest in learning about the U.S. Constitution and more importantly that he never wanted to win the U.S. presidential election, to begin with. According to the book, he was using the campaign as a means of boosting his own brand, and he was just as shocked that he won as the millions of Americans who watched the results roll in.
Needless to say, the White House and Trump have been busy denying the allegations; however, Trump’s managed to make himself look even more like a loose cannon. In a new tweet from Trump, he went off the rails.
‘I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!’
Uh oh. You know it’s super serious when Trump comes up with a nickname for you. In the book, several comments were made by Steve Bannon about Trump and his administration, which he has now tried to walk back.
Regardless of Trump’s obvious distaste with the book and even an attempt at stopping its publication, Wolff’s book has shot to the #1 spot on Amazon even though it can only be pre-ordered at this point. The book’s release was slated for January 9; however, the publishing company bumped it up to January 5.
Trump will continue to try to censor the book despite the curiosity of the people who want to read the book. Who could blame him though? One of the claims made in the book is that Trump’s own legal spokesperson quit the job after seeing Trump actually committing the crime of obstructing justice.
For every person who claims the book speaks the truth, there are just as many who are denying the book’s validity.
What we do know is the book is hotly anticipated and may reveal some startling truths about the president that we already sort of expected. However if not, it will be a testament to just how believable it is based on Trump’s loose cannon personality.
