Following President Trump’s unusual move on Tuesday to televise most of a bipartisan meeting on immigration, CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger seemed to credit Trump gossip book author Michael Wolff for Trump’s bipartisan behavior during the meeting. Moments after the tape of the meeting ended, both Borger and colleague Dana Bash credited the President for making this move that CNN chyron writers deemed an “extraordinary look inside Trump’s bipartisan meeting.”
In an interview with Trump-bashing author Michael Wolff on Monday’s CBS Late Show, aired early Tuesday morning, even left-wing comedian Stephen Colbert was skeptical of the truthfulness of the unsubstantiated tell-all book. The late-night host urged Wolff to release tape recordings of his discussions with White House staffers to address credibility problems.
During an interview with anti-Trump author Michael Wolff on Monday, MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough complained that he has twice tried to include unproven references to President Trump suffering from an early stage of dementia in his columns for the Washington Post, but both times the editors told him to remove those references.
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC’s Chuck Todd sat down with journalist Michael Wolff to discuss and promote his dubiously sources anti-Trump gossip book Fire and Fury. During the interview, the NBC host seemed to let it slip that the “entire media” was pushing an anti-Trump narrative and claimed that the book confirmed their accusations.
Yet more evidence that Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" book is a work of fiction comes to us by way of Cindy Adams, the long time columnist for the New York Post's Page Six. In contrast to Wolff's claim that Melania Trump cried on Election Night 2016, her Monday column states that she was with the Donald Trump family on Election Night and definitely did not see any such tears. In addition, nobody else Adams was with that night saw any Melania tears:
On Monday’s Morning Joe, co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were both back in-studio to talk to Michael Wolff about his new anti-Trump book Fire and Fury. In a wide-ranging 25-minute interview, Wolff went after his critics at the New York Times and Washington Post, repeatedly called the President’s mental health into question, and even insisted that “100%” of Trump’s “closest” advisors in the White House think that there is “something fundamentally wrong, something that scares them” about the President.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur on Monday cheered on left-wing author Michael Wolff and his new book. In a chummy, one-liberal-to-another sort of way, Tur gushed, “Michael Wolff, it is a fascinating book. Fire and Fury. As you can see. I did read it. Congratulations on the book, and congratulations on the president hating it.”
Brent Bozell appeared of Fox Business, Monday, to slam journalists who are fawning over the new Michael Wolff book. The Media Research Center President accused reporters of totally ignoring the books’s blatant falsehoods, saying, “They hate Donald Trump so much that they're even saying ‘Well, if it is only 50 percent true that is good enough for us.’”
Liberal journalist Michael Wolff, the man who has bragged that his new book will “finally bring down” the Trump presidency, on Monday absurdly insisted that he has “no political agenda.” To which CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell responded, “Fair enough. Fair enough.”
On his Friday show, Rush Limbaugh responded to the brouhaha over Michael Wolff’s over-the-top book claiming everyone who works for President Trump knows he’s mentally unfit for office. Limbaugh said the American people ought to compare Trump to Barack Obama and ask which president truly seemed insane in what he was doing in office.
Even many reporters from liberal publications are questioning the veracity of Michael Wolff's book of gossip, Fire and Fury. The latest such person who reveals just how laughable the vetting process of Wolff's book was is Mark Berman, a reporter at the Washington Post. Wolff placed Berman among others attending a breakfast at the Four Seasons restaurant with Ivanka Trump. It turns out that Berman was most definitely not there and he had a very good reason for not attending as he revealed to anchor Fredricka Whitfield on CNN Newsroom on Saturday.
The liberal media were experiencing nirvana on Sunday as they continued their nearly non-stop love-fest for the anti-Trump gossip book Fire and Fury by journalist Michael Wolff. It was the same on ABC’s This Week were Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos led a largely liberal panel in fawning over the book even as he speculated that only ‘50 percent’ of the book was actually true.
