Trump: Wolff Book 'Fire And Fury' Is 'Full Of Lies' - The View
#fire and fury
Archived from the original on October 29. For exam. Not really. What else.
This would be a very enjoyable read, if you have been following the news or media reports on the the Trump Administratin in the White House over the past year then I think you will find that this isn't a very shocking or revealing book but just an account of the bizarre Trump Adminstration and the people surrounding the Man of the Moment. Since Wolff has openly said that he isn't sure of all his facts, in a guilty pleasure sort of way, I'd guess there would be a good case on both scores. I didn't find this a particulary explosive or shocking read. Carolyn Kellogg.
Mueller drew up obstruction indictment against Trump, Michael Wolff book says
It officially hit shelves today. There are many questions about the book, not the least of which is how much is verifiably true. But it seems to me the simplest question is: Should I read it? Whether you follow Trump on Twitter out of devotion or outrage, the answer is simple: Yes, read it. Admittedly, this is Beltway drama, so there are no great songs or evil twins, but there is manipulation and betrayal. This would be the case for any White House but more so in this one — portrayed as being unmoored from ideology and policy and driven by the whims of its malleable leader.
I actually think it's a pretty good form of protest. If even half of this book is true, this presidency is a disaster. This book is making me stabby. Maybe Donald Trump is only just getting started". There are plenty of other sources feeding the narrative.
He is a New Yorker in Washington, far more consumed with the news media and personalities than policy issues. He elides facts, fudges the specifics and dispenses with professional norms in the service of success and status. And while affecting a contempt for the mainstream press, he cannot help dropping the mask to reveal the double game he is playing. The duo are a match made in heaven, or perhaps due south. Politics and elections are my beat, so I can easily get pulled into stories about the Trump White House. But while the accounts can be sublime, at least to a scoop-hungry reporter, they can also leave one unsatisfied. To put it mildly, it can be hard to attain the unalloyed truth from a president who has long boasted of gaming the press, or from competing courtiers who often wield insider anecdotes as sword and shield in their efforts to protect themselves and bloody their rivals.
The book was originally scheduled to go on sale on January 9, but the publisher, really. NBC News. A reckoning is coming… I me.
