The salacious book includes reporting that President Trump did not want to be president and that that former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon suggested Donald Trump Jr's meeting with a Russian lawyer was "treasonous". Wallace asked, before adding, "You assume the president had some idea that Michael Wolff was going around the White House". Bannon, he said, had "very little to do with our historic victory".
Sanders spoke Friday on "Fox and Friends" Friday about Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". "We're holding onto copies for customers who've ordered them for the rest of the day, then we'll sell whatever hasn't been picked up", DelGreco said. But now it but has become a vehicle for Bannon's own political ambitions, including clashes with the Republican Party establishment and national committee that he appears to be targeting for a takeover. And in Sacramento, local bookstores say they were inundated with calls from people asking for the book. "They spoke once by the phone for a few minutes, but it wasn't about the book".
The biggest revelation from the book came from a series of interviews done with Steve Bannon, the former right-hand man to Trump who worked in both the campaign and briefly in the White House. "It certainly was not off the record", the Hill, quoted Wolff, as saying on NBC's 'Today Show'.
He added: "I spoke to people who spoke to the president on a daily, sometime minute-by-minute basis".
"I am certainly absolutely in every way comfortable with everything I've reported in this book".
Even if this were true, says Ms. Showalter, this is "nothing more than the reassurances one gives oneself when one undertakes a tremendously risky venture".
He lashed out again in a tweet this morning, referring to "this phony book".
A recurring theme in Fire and Fury is the question of Trump's fitness for office.
After reviewing Sanders's dismissal of the book and its contents, Noah pointed out that the terms she used-"outrageous", "fraudulent, "tabloid gossip"-could easily apply to several claims the president himself has repeatedly made". "The libel laws are very weak in this country".
It already has cost him a key backer. "And look, as entertaining as it is, I don't know how much of this book is accurate and how much is exaggerated".
"They all say he is like a child".
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CNN in an exclusive interview on Friday he's never questioned Trump's mental fitness, despite reports he once called Trump a "moron". "But then theres the second hurdle that not only does he not read, he doesnt listen", he said. The tweet, which is just five hours old at time of writing, boasts over 13,000 retweets and 48,000 favourites. If it was print, it might as well not exist.
