The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by New York author Michael Wolff, paints a picture of a chaotic administration and a president whom insiders describe as being like a child needing instant gratification. "Suddenly everywhere people are going, 'Oh my God, it's true, he has no clothes.' That's the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end. this presidency".
"The drama is really what's driving interest", she said.
But he is not capable.
Fire and Fury gained traction after President Trump read released excerpts, one claiming Bannon called Donald Trump Jr. He compared the scene at the store with lines out the door to that of a new Harry Potter book release. "But in a way, that's what makes it a perfect scandal for this White House", Noah said. "I never spoke to him for book", Trump tweeted.
According to multiple media reports, about a dozen lawmakers from the House and Senate received a briefing from Yale psychiatrist Bandy X Lee on Capitol Hill about Trump's fitness to be president.
"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency", Trump declared. He said whether he "realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it was certainly not off the record".
Trump on Twitter on Thursday called the book "phony" and "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".
Moore was referencing Trump's October tweet that said, "While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close". Asked what that indicates, Wolff said, "I will quote Steve Bannon: He's lost it". For this reason, he said the White House is "sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five" hurricane.
In his best-selling book "Burn Rate", for instance, about his time as an early Internet entrepreneur, Wolff "fabricated" a story about his father-in-law having open-heart surgery.
"Certainly Jared and Ivanka, in their current situation, which is a deep legal quagmire, are putting everything on the president", he said.
It already has cost him a key backer. Far from it. Majority of people in this country want Donald Trump investigated for the sexual assault allegations. "He's like a pinball, just shooting off the sides", Wolff added. "They say he's a moron, idiot", Wolff told NBC. "I can't buy enough of this book". Voters elected to the nation's highest office a man who is unfit to do the job, who has proved unworthy of the public trust and who seems, to be blunt, increasingly unbalanced.
The White House press secretary countered Wolff's claims after his interview Friday.
