$0.00

There are some free links online. One of the google links is in this very thread where the entire book can be downloaded for free via that link.

Much of the book is from Bannon's standpoint while working in the WH. It outlines the tug-of-war between Bannon and Javanka and gets into details about Bannon's attempts to get the America First policies implemented. It talks about various power players and discussions amongst them.

Republicans would enjoy reading this book. It's like being inside the WH while decisions are being made and discussed and while humans are struggling for power amongst their co-workers(Bannon and Priebus vs Javanka).

It also talks about the sources for various leaks which have occurred over the past year.

I don't see a liberal spin in the book. Rather, it's a Bannon spin, IMO. Seems that Bannon spent the most time with the author.

Lightbulb Trumplings...

Please relax.

It's only a book.

A book quoting tRump's own WH staff and their opinions/concerns.

You should want to read up on that. You know, to remain informed.

I look forward to reading it. I prefer to be informed rather than misinformed.

YMMV

You can never learn too much about someone who is working hard to undermine and ultimately destroy our democratic representative government. Of course anyone that reads the book needs to do so with healthy skepticism and be able to ferret out the useful information. Trump supporters do the same thing when they watch Fox news, or read Breitbart, right?

It's already been proven to be a pack of lies, even admitted as such by the author himself. Good luck getting informed with that.

You mean like those who despised Obama and ran out and not only bought Dinesh D'Souza's book but also saw the movie based on same?

The following says all that needs to be said about this "book". It looks like the National Enquirer is more truthful and has more reliable stories than this "book" does. The first one in his own words sums it all up pretty well, he's (Wolff) an admitted liar and fake, whatever it takes to get what HE wants.

Quote:
His reliability has been challenged before — over quotes, descriptions and general accounts he’s provided in his many newspaper and magazine columns and in several books. Wolff has even acknowledged that he can be unreliable: As he recounted in “Burn Rate” — his best-selling book about his time as an early Internet entrepreneur — Wolff kept his bankers at bay by fabricating a story about his father-in-law having open-heart surgery.

“How many fairly grievous lies had I told?” he wrote. “How many moral lapses had I committed? How many ethical breaches had I fallen into? . . . Like many another financial conniver, I was in a short-term mode.” Wolff’s business collapsed in 1997.

Quote:
Well, well, well, turns out even Michael Wolff, author of the “Fire and Fury” book that has sparked such national discussion about the Donald Trump White House, admits that not everything he wrote is true.
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...mits-not-all-/

Quote:
Wolff has said in media interviews that he stands by his reporting, but the author's note acknowledges that he was merely piecing together the information he gathered as it came from his sources, regardless of whether he could confirm their accounts.

Quote:
Author Michael Wolff bolstered President Trump's effort to discredit the new book “Fire and Fury” on Friday when he acknowledged in a “Today” show interview that he had been willing to say whatever was “necessary” to gain access at the White House.

i've yet to see anything specifically challenged from the book. even bannon admits that his "traitorous" comment was correct but argues it was aimed at manafort, not donnie j jr.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders did say that Trump could recognize Boehner.

Since Trump didn't recognize his wife when she was standing right next to him and Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies constantly, who knows whether this is true or not?

Sanders "lies constantly?" Please. I'm sure President Trump "didn't recognize his wife." Yeah, right. You people are so pathetic!

We know who the liars are. Do you own a mirror?
