Michael Wolff, an American journalist whom no one has ever heard of before, is out with a new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
The book is exhaustive – it contains over 200 interviews with Trump and his senior staff over a period of 18 months, and it’s already provoked a White House response. In one excerpt of the book published by The Guardian, Wolff claims that Steve Bannon “described a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russians as ‘treasonous’ and ‘unpatriotic.'” Trump fired back, declaring “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
And there’s another section of the book that’s a bit more easy to debunk. According to the Daily Wire:
[In the book] During a meeting with former Fox News head Roger Ailes at Trump Tower the day after the election, Ailes told Trump that he needed someone who could enforce structure in the White House, “You need a son of a b*tch as your chief of staff,” Ailes purportedly told Trump. “And you need a son of a bitch who knows Washington. You’ll want to be your own son of a b*tch, but you don’t know Washington.”
Ailes told Trump that he should pick former Republican House Speaker John Boehner.
Wolff claims that Trump responded by asking, “Who’s that?”
This is the style of so many hit pieces on Trump. The authors claim to have been present at some event or another where Trump appeared clueless, and just assume the rest of the media will run with it.
In this case, all you have to do is search Trump’s Twitter timeline for the word “Boehner” to see that this is all a lie. Trump has been tweeting about the man he supposedly never knew existed for nearly half a decade.
Scary. President Obama told Boehner that the government doesn't have a spending problem http://t.co/MArtBvAp

Speaker John Boehner, who I like, should never have agreed to raise taxes because the Republicans got absolutely nothing for it!

No taxes in Boehner or Reid Plan—-important victory for America.

Maybe Boehner will stop this one sided deal in the House…I hope so!

Yeah – we’re fairly certain that Trump was aware who John Boehner is. Even his Twitter comments aside, Trump had met with Boehner numerous times prior to the election.

What else contained in the book is a lie? That’s for the few honest journalists left out there to find out. The book will officially be released on January 9th.
