Trump book author insists revelations will bring down US president

Steve Bannon

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore responded Friday to Trump, pointing out that the president had already used the adjective "sloppy" in his nickname for Moore.

The drama began Wednesday when Bannon was quoted in an excerpt from author Wolff's book, Fire and Fury.

Questions have now arisen over why Wolff was allowed into the White House and granted so much access for the critical portrayal of the administration.

Publication of Wolff's book came as news emerged that at least a dozen members of the US Congress were briefed last month by Yale University professor of psychiatry Bandy Lee on Trump's mental health. Delighted I trouble Trump when comparing his presidency to Watergate.

Yesterday in the nation's capital - and elsewhere - people lined up at bookstores to be the first to grab a copy of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which the publisher decided to release ahead of its previous publication date (originally set for Tuesday). "They didn't have any lawyers".

"I have a half-drunk beer and some half-eaten nachos at my table", a man shouted, seemingly to no one in particular. "They're going to go right through that".

First daughter Ivanka doesn't come off well in the book either.

Trump said former top strategist Steve Bannon, who is quoted in the book as making several disparaging remarks about Trump, facilitated the access. "This is full of false information, inaccuracies, and quite frankly, this author is, quite frankly, a crackpot, fake news fantasy fiction writer and it's been proven time and time again".

The plan was always to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to Bannon. He has collected raw gossip and spiky insights in the court of King Donald. "It sure seems like a fair and prudent policy to me and if I were still in the [federal CISO] position, I would be nodding my head yes".

The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" presents a damning portrayal of the Trump White House and has many of the president's closest advisers questioning his intelligence, leadership and maturity.

Wolff said in an interview this morning, however, that he "absolutely spoke to the president" and that he stands by his reporting in the book. "I owe them an enormous debt".

But the president's tweet, pointing fingers back at Hillary Clinton, comes hours after it was revealed that the Justice Department had launched a new investigation into the potential "pay to play" politics with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as secretary of state.

But that was fine, he thought. Mr Trump lived up to his billing as a thin-skinned political neophyte by having his lawyer threaten the author with a lawsuit. "Please don't feel stupid or insecure, it's not your fault". Caty Weaver was the editor. Joe Walsh, a former Republican congressman, tweeted: "If you have to tell people you're a stable genius, then you're not a stable genius".

Whether all the disclosures Wolff has reported are accurate or not, taken together they constitute more tasty morsels for both the conventional news media and the social media platforms Trump himself so favors.
