By now, those who follow the news (here, here, here) should be aware that there is a new best selling book about Trump called Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff. It’s apparently an inside look into Trump’s first year of Presidency taken from the author who managed to finagle his way into the White House. The Trump and the White House are trying to prevent the book from printing and at the same time, Trump is defending the stories that are being told in the book.
It seems like the more the White House is trying to suppress this book, the more popularity this book will gain and the more believable these stories about Trump will be. Whether or not all the stories should be believed is one issue. Trying to suppress a book is also another issue.
But what I find most amusing about this tale is eloquently summed up by Trevor Noah at 4 min:
“Bizarre, unverified, fraudulent claims. This is the world Donald Trump promotes. Millions of illegal votes. Barack Obama born in Kenya. Ted Cruz’s dad killed JFK. Suggesting Joe Scarborough killed an intern. Someone who tweeted: “check out sex tape” can’t complain about tabloid gossip. The truth is Mr. President, you made your bed.”
Here’s the whole opinion.
