The moment the nation has been waiting for ever since the first leaks hit the media on Tuesday is finally here. Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has finally been released – and we’ve gotten a detailed look at what kind of a man Trump truly is behind the scenes, when the cameras are off and he’s with his loving family.
It turns out he’s still quite possibly the most loathsome human being to ever walk the face of the earth.
Trump was known to boast “openly and proudly” about how Melania was his “trophy wife” and would “awkwardly” brag about her attractiveness to his friends, openly objectifying her at every turn.
Prior to the presidency, the two would go days at a time without seeing each other.
“Often she did not know where he was, or take much notice of that fact. Her husband moved between residences as he would move between rooms. Along with knowing little about his whereabouts, she knew little about his business, and took at best modest interest in it” writes Wolff.
Trump reportedly took very little interest in the life of his youngest son, Barron, and was “something of an absent father,” which follows what his first wife Ivana Trump has said in the past about how he entirely neglected his first sons, Donald Jr. and Eric – who, it turns out, are referred to as “Uday” and “Qusay” by White House staffers.
He was not the father which would take a stroll and go to the Central Park or go play to baseball with them or something,. It was only until they were about 18-years-old [that] he could communicate with them, because he could start to talk business with them” recounted Ivana to ABC News.
While most of this could be inferred from simply watching Donald Trump interact with his family, it is still startling to be faced, once again, with the evidence of just what a terrible person Donald Trump at every conceivable level, be it in the way that he does business, interacts with his family, approaches his personal well-being, or neglecting our once-great nation.
Bombshell book author just turned Trump’s attacks on his credibility against him
On this morning’s Today Show, Savannah Guthrie interviewed author Michael Wolff and told him that the President is questioning his credibility for the scandalous White House details he reported in his book, Fire and Fury, out today.
Wolff responded, “My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on earth at this point.”
Start watching the video below this article at 2:54 to hear Wolff’s comments on Trump’s credibility.
Wolff stood by his reporting, which he derives from hours of videotaped and transcribed interviews with former senior White House advisor, Steve Bannon, and every other member of the President’s inner circle, as well as a shockingly candid dinner conversation between Bannon and deceased FOX news founder, Roger Ailes, conducted at the author’s own New York townhouse, and weekly chats on a West Wing couch.
His claims have been verified by third parties and have not been denied by anyone other than Trump himself and his White House mouthpiece Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Trump himself granted Wolff free reign of the West Wing to write his book, not realizing the book the author had previously written about Trump idol Rupert Murdoch was a withering indictment of the FOX owner (who himself secretly calls Trump a “f***ing idiot”).
The President’s communications staff ordered the White House staff to cooperate fully with the book.
They were more than willing to sing like canaries about Mad King Trump and his manifestly unqualified family members, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
If the simian chaos Wolff describes in Fire and Fury weren’t true, if Trump had disciplined control of the workings of his administration, how would Wolff have obtained access to write the book in the first place?
Wolff himself has said that he cannot control that White House staff differed in their accounts or lied, following in the footsteps of their mendacious boss.
He says he is reporting what they said and is letting the reader deduce for themselves what the truth is, while following the threads of sources he trusts to piece together a version of events he believes to be true.
But he feels confident that he has not made anything up, only reported on the rank incompetence and disorder he witnessed first-hand in the White House and heard directly from its denizens.
In the Today interview, Guthrie asked him, “You stand by everything in the book? Nothing made up?”
“Absolutely everything in the book,” Wolff responded. “I am certainly and absolutely, in every way, comfortable with everything I’ve reported in this book.”
One thing he definitely got right. . . Trump’s credibility is indeed the lowest of anyone to walk the earth.
