Wrong: Michael Wolff Claims ‘100% of People Questioned Trump’s Fitness for Office’

Controversial author Michael Wolff is now attempting to defend his White House “tell-all” book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

By moving forward with publishing the book, Wolff is disregarding the president’s warnings not to do so.

According to ABC News, Trump’s lawyers sent a “cease and desist” letter to Wolff as well as his publisher, demanding that he immediately stop “any further publication, release or dissemination.”

IJR reports: 

When NBC host Savannah Guthrie asked Wolff about his claim that all of the people around Trump questioned his intelligence and fitness for office, Wolff confirmed it was “100 percent of the people around him.”

“I spoke to people who spoke to the president on a daily, sometimes minute-by-minute basis,” Wolff stated.

He claims that the “common thread” between the people he spoke to is that Trump “is like a child,” he added, “And what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification. It’s all about him.”

As an example, Wolff said Trump attempted to gratify himself by issuing a cease and desist letter to Wolff, even though advisers thought it was a bad idea.

In a tweet on Thursday night, Trump attempted to discredit Wolff’s book, which he said was “full of lies, misrepresentations, and sources that don’t exist.”

Wolff welcomed that tweet, however, saying it not only helped him sell books but helped prove his point about Trump.

“What I say is, where do I send the box of chocolates?” Wolff asked.

Trump also claimed Wolff never spoke to him, something Wolff refuted during his interview on “Today.”

“I absolutely spoke to the president,” Wolff told Guthrie. “Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don’t know. But it certainly was not off the record.”

Wolff said he has recordings and notes from his interviews, but he refused to say whether he would release the recordings after Guthrie asked him.

“Would you release any of those recordings since your credibility is being questioned?” Guthrie inquired.

Wolff replied, “My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on earth.”

I think Wolff is living in a fantasy world if he truly thinks that people do not believe in Trump’s fitness to lead. Not to mention, Trump has more credibility in his pinky finger than this man has in his entire body.
