FLOTUS Has Fiery Response To Salacious Claims In Michael Wolff's New WH Book

Michael Wolff’s new book - “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” - is chock full of explosive claims and suggestions that point to a White House that just may be in disarray. The author was granted extensive access to the White House during the early days of the Trump administration for incredibly unclear reasons, and he walked out with a ton of tidbits to bolster the ultimate point he is attempting to prove: that President Donald Trump is unfit for office.

To further drive his point home, Wolff draws on a whole host of quotes from sources in the White House - both named and unnamed - and the overwhelming majority of them portray Trump as if he’s a man that’s in over his head. Among the many sources that Wolf drew upon is Steve Bannon, the former White House strategist who is believed to be the one to open up the doors to Wolff in the first place.

Bannon had some harsh words for the president, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr. - who he would describe as ‘treasonous’ for holding a meeting with a Russian lawyer - and that led to a fiery response from Trump.

While the flap between the two former colleagues generated all of the early headlines, there are a whole lot of other nuggets buried in Wolff’s book. The author also builds on the narrative that First Lady Melania Trump is none too pleased with the fact that her husband achieved his presidential goals.

As the Independent Journal Review shares, Wolff had even more to say in a follow-up piece for New York magazine in which he offered up some more clarity on the contents of his book.

“Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching."

"Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning,” he wrote.

“Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.”

That passage sparked a stern rebuke from Stephanie Grisham, communications director for the First Lady.

“The book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section. Mrs. Trump supported her husband's decision to run for president and in fact, encouraged him to do so,” Grisham said.

“She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did.”

There have been a ton of questions about the validity of the claims made in the book, and they’re not just coming from the White House. Members of the journalistic community have thrown a ton of shade on Wolff’s track record, as he has a rep for taking the ‘story telling’ part of the job a bit too far.

Trump and his associates have hit similar notes, but there remains a ton of interest in the book nonetheless.

So how much of Wolff’s book is just hyperbole and how much is the real deal? We can’t answer that with certainty, but the ultimate proof of that will likely come from the shelf life of the book.

If it remains atop best-seller lists for weeks on end, then there may be some more substance than meets the eye. If it flames out to the discount rack rather quickly, then there may not be all that much to see in the pages inside.
