According to journalist Michael Wolff, author of a new tell-all book “Fire and Fury,” President Donald Trump is currently having an affair. And while Wolff conveniently didn’t have enough evidence to include the affair in the book, he says its pages contain context clues as to who Trump’s mistress is.

Quite frankly, the allegation sounds like nothing more than a publicity stunt. But, thanks to a solitary sentence, astute readers have surmised that United States Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley must be the one Trump is sleeping with behind Melania’s back. In case you’re wondering, here’s the sentence in question: “The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future.”

How damning. But, unfortunately for all the “Trump is secretly a terrible person” conspiracy theorists out there, Haley has come out and called the rumor “absolutely not true.”

“I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there,” Haley said Thursday on Politico’s Women Rule podcast. “He says that I’ve been talking a lot with the president in the Oval [Office] about my political future. I’ve never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him.”

Haley added that Wolff’s allegations are proof positive that successful women are often the target of such attacks. “At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not,” Haley said. Wolff did not respond to a request for comment.

Haley further called the rumor “disgusting” – and it is. It’s absolutely disgusting that Wolff is pushing a baseless rumor about a successful woman in politics in effort to sell his sham book. He should know better, and the media should know better than to take his claims at face value.

But that’s liberals for you – they’re all too willing to go back on their own perceived values and morals if it furthers their own agenda.
