Too funny. But if people are interested in this type of "journalism", they should just go purchase the latest issue of National Inquirer as may have as much gossip as this new book.

While I deny no man his due from his labors, if there is so much questionable about the truth of it's contents (quoting hearsay), perhaps it's being sold in an incorrect format- non-fiction when it should be fiction or satire.

Well, they didn't come out with a bunch of lies to stop him, so they must be complicit, right?

I seriously doubt the controversy will limit the sale of Wolff's new book. If anything it will most likely boost sales.

I find it interesting that when these "Bastards" exposed problems in the Bush 43 administration, they were Lauded, Quoted, and virulently Defended by the left.

So far I've not heard of even one person quoted in the book saying that they didn't make the statement. One didn't expressly remember making the statement but he said it was probable that he did.

The key here is that the quotations are often taken out of context and might be from a moment of great frustration by the person with Donald Trump. That doesn't make the statement false and, in many cases, it might actually reveal the true feelings about Donald Trump from the speaker that wouldn't otherwise make that statement for political reasons.

We also need to point out that this is a non-fiction book and not the journalistic work of an investigative reporter. Reporter can't always tell the entire truth because tomorrow creates another deadline and every day's reporting is influenced by the previous day's reporting and is limited by what will be reported the following day.

Investigative reporters have universally come out to say that what Wolff has published is exactly what they see on a daily basis from Trump and the Trump White House. They just can't report on it because their job role is different.

It's not surprising that the White House staff and Republicans are running to the defense of Trump. If they were to do otherwise it immediately demands invoking of the 25th Amendment to suspend Trump's role as president. They're not ready to go there, at least no yet. It is sometimes funny how that defense of Trump plays out.

CIA Director Mike Panpeo came out in Trump's defense.

Quote:
CIA Director Mike Pompeo defended President Trump amid questions about the commander in chief’s mental fitness sparked by a controversial book about Trump’s first year in office.

“Those statements are just absurd,” Pompeo said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Just pure fantasy … The president is engaged, he understands the complexity, he asks really difficult questions of our team at the CIA so we can provide any information that he needs to make good, informed policy decisions.”

Pompeo said the only people who are questioning Trump’s fitness to be president are those that have not accepted that he is the leader of the country.

“Completely fit,” he said. “It’s just a ludicrous question. These are from people who just have not yet accepted the fact that President Trump is the United States’ president. I’m sorry for them."
CIA director Mike Pompeo: Trump is 'completely fit' to be president

This is contrary to what was reported just a few weeks ago about the CIA intelligence briefings of Donald Trump.

Quote:
According to current and former US officials, President Donald Trump's daily briefing is designed to avoid making him angry, and often avoids the latest intelligence on Russia's interference in the 2016 US election, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

"If you talk about Russia, meddling, interference — that takes the PDB off the rails," one former senior U.S. intelligence official said, using an acronym for the president's daily briefing.
Trump's briefings often avoid Russian meddling because it upsets him - Business Insider

In fact it's claimed that if the CIA or NSA addresses the seriousness of the Russian intervention in the 2016 the President flies into a rage and has been known to walk out of the briefing. As note this completely "derails the PDB" (Presidential Daily Briefing).

The CIA and NSA do include the intelligence in there daily briefing but because Trump flips out if it's in the verbal part of the briefing that information is included in the written part of the briefing.

Quote:
....several current and former members of the administration's staff said Trump's briefing sometimes buries the information about Russian meddling to make it easier for the president to handle, but at times is not even presented to him verbally.

Although a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Brian Hale, told The Post that the briefing is "written by senior-level, career intelligence officers," and that it "always provides objective intelligence — including on Russia — to the president and his staff," officials said that this intelligence is sometimes only included in the written briefing and is not communicated to the president orally.
So the intelligence agencies do present the President with the intelligence but because he's know to completely wig-out, go into an irrational rage, and then walk out of the brieft whenever the Russian meddling in the 2016 election is brought up during the daily briefings they don't address it in the oral part of the briefing. Instead it's a part of the written briefing and the CIA and NSA claim they're doing their job in briefing the president. There's a serious problem with this of course.

Donald Trump doesn't read the reports! As Michael Wolff points out something that everyone in the White House knows and something that Trump's had even bragged about not needing to read detailed information because, as Trump puts it, his "instincts are perfect" so he doesn't need the detailed facts. Trump's lack of reading has been well known for years and it didn't just pop up yesterday.

So Trump isn't informed because the CIA and NSA staff members that do the Daily Presidential Briefings are afraid to bring up the Russian meddling in the oral part of the presentation because Trump flies into an irrational rage and storms out of the briefings so instead they put that information into the written report that Trump never reads.

Is it any wonder that Trump believes Putin that claims there was no Russian meddling? The CIA and NSA won't cover it in the oral presentation because Trump is so mentally unstable that he can't listen to it without flying into an uncontrollable rage and, because Trump doesn't read the written intelligence reports, he has no idea that it even happened. Even if Trump did sit down to actually read a report covering the meddling he still wouldn't read it because he'd tear up the report in a fit of rage.

We've heard about Trump's fits of irrational rage time and time again. Someone says something that Trump takes as an insult and instantly he bursts into a fit of rage. That's not normal. Irrational rage is a symptom of a mental disorder.

Mike Pompeo also seems to be ignoring that many very high profile Republicans have also commented on Trump's obvious lack of mental stability. Bob Corker, John McCain, and several others come to mind. This "blame it on the Democrats that don't accept that Trump was elected" is the biggest BS cope-out in refusing to face legitimate concerns of the 21st Century.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Edit.
People supposedly repeating what someone else said.

Hearsay: the report of another person's words by a witness, usually disallowed as evidence in a court of law.

The major obstacle you have in convincing people that this book is full of lies, is Trump himself. We have all seen Trump. We have all heard Trump. There is nothing that Wolff can say in that book that comes close to what we know about this serial lying unhinged amoral perv already.
