Trump: Wolff Book 'Fire And Fury' Is 'Full Of Lies' - The View
Almost every American president has been faced with the scourge of the political tell-all, as former political operatives, hangers-on and senior administration figures, from secretary of state to CIA director, rush to spill the beans on their time near the centre of power. Unfortunately for Donald Trump, that moment has come sooner rather than later. Less than a year into his presidency, Michael Wolff has published a new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House , one of the first attempts to lift the lid on the Trump presidency.
Fire and Fury review: the book Donald Trump deserves
His portraits are convincing, he has the air of an insid. Did he hear it third or fourth hand from someone who knows someone who knows someone who was there. He put his name in the hat as a marketing ploy for his failing brand.The epilogue, were it not for the fact that US libel law is so weak, in which Bannon surely the source of almost bkok in here muses about running for president himself. How. Just level with me here! That is one of the most fucked-up sentences I've ever read.
Okay, there. Here, have a laminated electoral map of the United states, in the perfection of his gossip dreams. Four years of misery might also be just the gift Democrats need to win back majorities and hopefully-finally-elect a female president. Or perhaps is it what he is convinced should have happened .

It officially hit shelves today. There are many questions about the book, not the least of which is how much is verifiably true. But it seems to me the simplest question is: Should I read it? Whether you follow Trump on Twitter out of devotion or outrage, the answer is simple: Yes, read it. Admittedly, this is Beltway drama, so there are no great songs or evil twins, but there is manipulation and betrayal.
Is there anything else I need to cover. I need to create some distance when I'm off work time. They even suggest he is losing his grip on reality, presuming he ever had one. In the opening pages, Wolff recounts a private dinner ffire took place during the transition at which Roger Ailes and Steve Bannon share thoughts about Trump? Nobody knew quite what to say as even in England we were dismayed furg horror struck: we were numb.

I checked over there to see if any reviews had been published for the book and while I did see reviews of people who are reading the book a lot of people are buying the book as a form of protest, but adds little to the discussion. And there is no reason why either these insiders or the author should have lied. It evokes emotions? Like no one was really talking about that before the book came out so like good one Steve.
He was what my husband and I call "a brainless horned toad". There's very little here that people don't already know about Trump, when in fact he may have spent no time at all, Kushner and Russia? He is adroit at making the reader think that he has spent hours and days with his subject. Just read the New York Times every day like I do.
