'Fire and Fury' book on Trump White House goes on sale

'Fire and Fury' book on Trump White House goes on sale

Michael Wolff's book, 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House', was published yesterday after it was brought forward given the intense public interest.

Even more savagely, on Thursday afternoon Trump reportedly got on the phone with GOP donor Rebekah Mercer, daughter of hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, and requested that she publicly cut all ties with Bannon, whom the family had once fully supported.

Mr Bannon had helped Mr Trump form a coalition of anti-establishment Republicans, blue-collar working class and economic nationalists that launched him to the White House, but Mr Trump had long ago grown frustrated that Mr Bannon seemed to be overstepping his role.

"I will tell you the one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common: They all say he is like a child", Wolff said on NBC.

"If it's 10% or 20% or 50% or 70% that isn't true", Spicer argues, "the reader's not left to know which is true and which is not".

Justin Bethel, manager of the Politics and Prose bookstore, said its 30 copies sold out quickly.

"Sometimes", he wrote, "I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them".

First came Dingledine. Then a woman named Moira who works in the legal support field, followed by a historian from the University of California at Riverside, who said this president is "off the rails" (historically speaking, of course).

"The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor - with no lawyers", Bannon was quoted as saying in the book.

That's according to information released by Amazon and Barnes & Noble, which each reported that hardcovers of "Fire and Fury" stood at No. 1 as of midday Friday.

The White House has said the book is riddled with errors, and campaign and administration officials have disputed events depicted in the book.

"Trump responded in his fashion - We'll sue! - and set her up with lawyers".

The president's unorthodox address to the press soon drew comparisons to "The Wizard of Oz", "1984", and "V For Vendetta", while many blasted Trump for the "cowardly" and "authoritarian-like" video. That only added to the frenzy at bookstores where it was available early Friday, several days ahead of schedule.

"What was I doing there if he didn't want me to be there?" The book, Sanders continued, contains "mistake after mistake after mistake". Jonathan Lemire says Wolff had 'largely unfettered access' to the West Wing compared to other White House reporters. "Fire and Fury" also quotes former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon suggesting that the meeting Donald Trump Jr. took with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

In another section, the writer claims Trump used to devise plans to sleep with his friends' wives, saying it made "life worth living". Following Trump's threatening and dangerous tweets about North Korea and Trump's "nuclear button", Richard W. Painter-who served as an adviser to President George W. Bush-tweeted his own concerns about Trump's psychological state, too.
