Michael Wolff Talks About Donald Trump and Fire and Fury

NATION-NOW     Stephen Colbert Jimmy Kimmel mock Trump's plan to reform libel laws     
       Late night mocks Trump's libel law reform plan

"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" author Michael Wolff appeared to have expressed regret that his book had led to a "difficult situation" for US President Donald Trump's former White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon.

Interest in the book reached a fever pitch after Donald Trump launched a defensive volley of tweets in response to concerns raised about his mental stability in the book.

The book, which the president decried as "fake" and makes a number of questionable allegations based off various anecdotal reports, paints a picture of a mentally-unstable and incompetent president. "I consider it work", Trump said.

Mr Trump himself welcomed the dialogue - and said talks between North Korea and the USA were a possibility, saying 'We'll see what happens'.

Wolff has developed a reputation as someone capable of exaggerating the truth, but he also is a world-class writer who managed to obtain unprecedented access to the Trump White House.

The author of an explosive new book that questions President Donald Trump's fitness for office on Monday contradicted Steve Bannon's explanation of comments that had angered his former boss. Despite the White House communication to the publisher to Cease and Desist in publishing the book and Communications Director Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling the book all lies, the timing of "Fire and Fury" couldn't be better. Quite the opposite. Anybody who's spending time around the White House knows a lot of what I know.

Fire at Trump Tower in New York's Manhattan, no casualties
The New York City Fire Department responded to the electrical blaze around 7 a.m., FDNY spokesman Frank Dwyer told HuffPost. Others expressed their concern for the safety of Trump and those who were in the tower at the time of the incident.

"Everybody among the senior staff has at one time or another referred to him as a child, sometimes as an 11-year-old".

Friday was also the same day the other Fire And Fury came out - criticizing President Trump.

"Who's that?" Trump replied, according to Wolff.

"Part of what I was trying to do was establish this brand, that I can do anything to this image and you can see it anywhere and it just reminds you, 'Oh wow, that guy's making that again, I should pay attention, '" Rodriguez told the magazine. Eventually there'll be a made-for-reality TV reunion of sorts between the two. I've just written a book.

During his remarks Trump swung from praising his own meeting coverage to telling journalists that they were dependent on his presidency for ratings to threatening a "strong look" at libel laws.

Some tend to think that to Steve Bannon, it's all a big game, and eventually he will find his way back into President Trump's good graces. One of Trump's personal attorneys, Charles Harder, sent cease and desist letters to Steve Bannon, Wolff and the publishing company, Henry Holt.
