This week has been dominated by the nonsensical ramblings of a man named Michael Wolff, whose latest book is his attempt at “taking down” the entire Trump presidency.
Apparently, no one told Wolff about all of the “resistance” rats that came before him and were dragged from their own murky and muddy nests at the edge of the D.C. Swamp and drowned by the populist President and his patriotic pest control agents.
Wolff, whose torrid tome is titled “Fire And Fury”, has been touting the pseudo-fictional work as a revelation in the Trump era. Wolff, who spent some time within the confines of Trump’s White House, turned his time in the West Wing into a bizarre and twisted tale of mental incompetence, turnabout, and posturing worthy of a John Grisham movie adaptation. The sheer shock value of the book’s “disclosures” have raised red flags throughout the conservative community, while the left continues to quote the overpriced toilet paper as gospel.
As Wolff continues his self-serving publicity tour, a number of questions have been raised about the validity of his claims. The author has done pathetically little to dissuade his doubters either, admitting last week that he wasn’t sure how much of his book was even true, and letting the world know that he employed a “looseness” with the truth during writing.
Now, during an interview on CBS This Morning, Wolff made yet another astounding claim.
“Host Norah O’Donnell asked Wolf, ‘Did you speak to any members of the president’s Cabinet for this book?’
“Wolff responded, ‘I did not.’
“‘You did not?’ O’Donnell repeated.
“’I did not,’ Wolff confirmed.
“She then asked Wolff if he ever interviewed Vice President Mike Pence.
“’I did not,’ Wolff said again.”
Wolff’s credibility takes an even more damning hit later in the interview as well.
“’The president denies he ever spoke to you for the book, at all,’ O’Donnell said.
“’I probably think he had no idea he was speaking to me for this book,’ Wolff said. ‘When I would meet the president in the White House we would chat as though we were friends.’
“’But that’s not an interview, to greet someone and say, “Hello,”‘ O’Donnell pointed out. ‘That’s not a journalistic exercise.’”
O’Donnell has hit the nail on the head.
Michael Wolff’s time in the White House, and the manner in which he conducted himself was completely inappropriate in terms of gathering information for a book. This means that Wolff’s basic information was flawed and incomplete before he even began to employ the “looseness” that he has already admitted to.
This doesn’t bode well for Wolff, who has been in the hot seat from the moment that Fire and Fury hit the shelves and quickly sold out. Furthermore, future sales of the book will likely stagnate thanks to a well-time tweet by whistleblower website Wikileaks that pointed viewers in the direction of a free copy of the salacious nonsense hosted on Google Docs.
