    He'll probably end up using the same method of promoting his book as Hillary did!

    Why bother buying the book? Both sides will cherrypick the good parts and run with them. Heck! They’ll practically read them to you on network TV and on every political website.

    It doesn't matter if the book is true or not. It was clear Trump was just another in a long line of criminals way back in the Trump University days. You know, the "school" he designed to show how to make people rich as long as they signed over their retirement savings to him.

    Trump has been preying on the elderly, the poor, the handicapped and immigrants for a long time. He likes to laugh at them and make fun of them as well. Trump has a very long history as a con artist. I amazed at how many people fell for his MAGA slogan. How many times has he declared bankruptcy? How many law suits has he settled?

    I won't be buying the book, how far along as a criminal he's become is of no interest to me because it's clear as day he is enough of a criminal and a liar to never be able to make things better for the average American, let alone MAGA. LOL

    Not buying the book, however:

    I am ENTERTAINED!

    I have a pet theory that Trump is in on the book profits and made his tweets and legal actions in order to drive up profits.

    • Excerpts from Michael Wolff's new book 'Fire and Fury' have revealed more claims about the Trumps' 'perplexing' marriage

    • Book says Melania often didn't know where her husband was or take much notice
    • Melania's spokeswoman hit out at the book earlier this week denying the claims

    TPTB have established the best distraction ever, outside of war that is.
    I'm worried that once everyone understands the true Tramp, they will then move onto the better distraction.

    BTW, the plan is to have war, crime, poverty and as many problems and distractions as possible grow and grow. Over the next decade or two, this will create the global disarray required to release the super bugs. Without well functioning healthcare and social structures, these super bugs will be extemely effective. People won't get information in time and counters like scientific analysis toward cures and protection measures will be drastically hindered.

    Who's gonna buy the book?

    Idiots that listen to everything the talking heads on tv or social media give them. Follow the $$$ on this week long fake news time slot filler. Everything you're told is for a reason, when will people wake up to this Kitsch Theatre they get hit with everyday.

    Rush Limbaugh golfs with Wolf Blitzer and considers him a friend for christs sake. The billion dollar business model of the 24/7 fake hyped news cycle must constantly be fed. $$$$$$

    Fear and Anger are proven business models. Keep half the sheep angry and the other half scared to maximize profits.

    It's a big scam on the Left. Bannon is trying to sucker them into buying his book. The guy is smart because nobody on the left would ever spend 10 cents on a book by a Breitbart editor.

    • "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" has set the political world ablaze.
    • It contains vivid, detailed, and embarrassing accounts of President Donald Trump and those around him.
    • But the book's author, Michael Wolff, says he can't be sure that all of it is true.

    The author of the explosive new book about Donald Trump's presidency acknowledged in an author's note that he wasn't certain all of its content was true.

    Michael Wolff, the author of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," included a note at the start that casts significant doubt on the reliability of the specifics contained in the rest of its pages.

    Several of his sources, he says, were definitely lying to him, while some offered accounts that flatly contradicted those of others.

    But some were nonetheless included in the vivid account of the West Wing's workings, in a process Wolff describes as "allowing the reader to judge" whether the sources' claims are true.

    In other cases, the media columnist said, he did use his journalistic judgment and research to arrive at what he describes "a version of events I believe to be true."

    Here is the relevant part of the note, from the 10th page of the book's prologue:

    "Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book.

    "Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them. In other instances I have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true."

    The book itself, reviewed by Business Insider from a copy acquired prior to its Friday publication, is not always clear about what level of confidence the author has in any particular assertion.

    Lengthy, private conversations are reported verbatim, as are difficult-to-ascertain details like what somebody was thinking or how the person felt.

    Wolff attributes his book to "more than two hundred interviews" with people including Trump and "most members of his senior staff." According to the news website Axios, Wolff has dozens of hours of tapes to back up what he said.

    Claims contained in the book have been widely reported by the media in the US and further afield.

    They include assertions that Trump never wanted to be president, that all of his senior staff considered him an idiot, that he tried to lock the Secret Service out of his room, and that he ate at McDonald's to avoid being poisoned.

    Business Insider rounded up some more of the most eye-catching claims in this article.

    Trump, who sought to block publication of the book but was too late, tweeted Thursday that it was "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist."





    The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, described the book as "complete fantasy."

    Asked to rebut specific points, she said: "I'm not going to waste my time or the country's time going page by page and talking about a book that is complete fantasy and just full of tabloid gossip."

    Other people mentioned in the book have also disputed claims made about them.

    Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who the book said warned Trump that he may be under surveillance from British spies, issued a statement describing the claim as "categorically absurd" and "simply untrue."

    Anna Wintour, the longtime Vogue editor, also dismissed the claim that she lobbied Trump to be his ambassador to the UK as "laughably preposterous."

    Other journalists have also urged caution. Some cited Wolff's track record — questions were raised about his 2008 book on Rupert Murdoch — and others compared his claims with their own knowledge of the Trump White House.

    On Friday morning, Wolff responded to claims about the accuracy of his book in an interivew with NBC's "Today" show.

    Host Savannah Guthrie asked him: "You stand by everything in the book? Nothing made up?"

    He responded: "Absolutely everything in the book."

    Shortly after, he expanded, saying: "I am certainly and absolutely, in every way, comfortable with everything I've reported in this book."

    This isn't necessarily at odds with what he said in the author's note, as it allows for the possibility that he was told something untrue and repeated it without realising, or reached a wrong conclusion when presenting a version of contested events.
