Top 20 Revelations from Trump ‘Fire and Fury’ Book About Golden Showers, Ivanka, Bannon and More

A new book by Michael Wolff offers an insider look at President Donald Trump’s candidacy and first year in office, and reveals dozens of fascinating details about the administration.

The book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, was written after what Wolff claims were more than 200 interviews with the president and his inner circle. Trump, along with a representative for first lady Melania Trump and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has already decried some of the book’s allegations, saying they are untrue.

Here are some of the most explosive details revealed in the book, which will be published next week.

1. Steve Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist, described a meeting set up by Donald Trump Jr. with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.” “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon is quoted as saying.

2. Bannon reportedly said the president likely met with the meeting’s participants afterward, speculating that Trump’s son brought them up to his father’s office. “The chance that Don Jr. did not walk these jumos up to his father’s office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero,” Bannon said.

3. Trump didn’t want to win, and no one in his campaign thought he would win. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” ­former national security adviser Michael Flynn assured his friends about his decision to accept $45,000 for a speech in Russia.

4. Trump’s daughter Ivanka described Trump’s hair as a perfectly engineered hairdo that takes many steps to complete. “She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate—a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery—surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” the book says.

5. Trump wondered what a golden shower was after hearing reports of the intelligence dossier that alleges that Russian security forces have compromising details about the president. “Having dispensed with [CNN chief Jeff] Zucker, the president of the United States went on to speculate on what was involved with a golden shower,” Wolff writes.

6. Trump would speculate on the flaws of his staff after hanging up the phone with them. "Bannon was disloyal (not to mention he always looks like shit). [Reince] Priebus was weak (not to mention he was short—a midget)," Wolff recalls about Trump's reflections. "[Jared] Kushner was a suck-up. Sean Spicer was stupid (and looks terrible too). Conway was a crybaby. Jared and Ivanka should never have come to Washington."

7. Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner agreed that if one of them were to run for president in the future, it would be her. “They didn’t say that?” said Bannon upon learning about the deal. “Stop. Oh, come on. They didn’t actually say that? Please don’t tell me that. Oh my God.”

8. Trump eats at McDonald’s so often out of paranoia and because he is a germaphobe. "Long afraid of being poisoned, he would say that one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's was because nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely prepared," the book says.

9. Trump asked Hope Hicks, the White House communications director who had dated former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, why she was worried about Lewandowski's bad press after he got fired. "You've already done enough for him,” Trump apparently said. “You're the best piece of tail he'll ever have."

10. Hicks and Trump had a very close relationship, and Trump's inner circle saw her as something of a daughter to the president. "[Hope] Hicks was in fact thought of as Trump’s real daughter, while Ivanka was thought of as his real wife,” the book states.

11. As a candidate, Trump had no interest in learning about the Constitution, which he knew very little about. “I got as far as the Fourth Amendment, before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head,” said Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to the Trump campaign.

12. Trump used derogatory language to express his anger toward Sally Yates. “Trump conceived an early, obsessive antipathy for Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates,” the book reads. “She was, he steamed, ‘such a c---.’”

13. Trump didn't enjoy his own inauguration. "He was angry that A-level stars had snubbed the event, disgruntled with the accommodations at Blair House, and visibly fighting with his wife, who seemed on the verge of tears," the book claims.

14. Trump reassured Melania that he would not win the election. On election night, when it became clear that he would win, "Melania was in tears—and not of joy."

15. The travel ban was passed on a Friday so that people would protest at airports. Asked why the timing was on a weekend, Bannon said, “So the snowflakes would show up at the airports and riot.”

16. Trump never reads. “He didn’t process information in any conventional sense. He didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semiliterate,” the book says.

17. Trump would mention getting in bed with other women. “Trump liked to say that one of the things that made life worth living was getting your friends’ wives into bed,” the book claims.

18. Trump offered to marry TV hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “You guys should just get married,” Trump told them. “I can marry you! I’m an internet Unitarian minister,” Kushner said. “What?” said the president. “What are you talking about? Why would they want you to marry them when I could marry them? When they could be married by the president! At Mar-a-Lago!”

19. The president's lifestyle followed many unusual routines. "If he was not having his 6:30 dinner with Steve Bannon, then, more to his liking, he was in bed by that time with a cheeseburger, watching his three screens and making phone calls," the book says.

20. Trump would share private details about himself, then get upset when information was leaked. "As details of Trump’s personal life leaked out, he became obsessed with identifying the leaker. The source of all the gossip, however, may well have been Trump himself," Wolff writes. "In his calls throughout the day and at night from his bed, he often spoke to people who had no reason to keep his confidences."

Trump Didn't Want To Be President


[Video taken offline]

You know, somehow, all during the campaign, I did think that, maybe subconsciously, he didn't really want to be president, and didn't think he would win. He certainly did everything he could to sabotage himself... Even now. But somehow it doesn't work, his base and the majority of Reps will just not give up on him.

Michael Wolff’s Withering Portrait of President Donald Trump
By John Cassidy

Michael Wolff, the author of the new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” extracts from which set the Internet ablaze on Wednesday, is an experienced magazine journalist. Among the publications on his résumé are New York, Vanity Fair, and the Hollywood Reporter. A chronicler of media, power, and wealth, Wolff is also willing to dish the dirt, as he demonstrated in a gossipy tome about Rupert Murdoch, which was published in 2008. After that book came out, there was an inquest inside Murdoch’s News Corporation into who had granted Wolff access. Fingers were pointed at Gary Ginsberg, a former Clinton Administration official who served for years as Murdoch’s political adviser, confidant, and fixer. Ginsberg subsequently lost his job, and now works at Time Warner. But, as Wolff noted in a foreword to the paperback edition of the book, Murdoch was the person primarily responsible for the access he gained. The press baron “not only was (mostly) a patient and convivial interviewee but also opened every door I asked him to open,” Wolff wrote.

If there was a similar inquest at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue about Wolff’s new book, it didn’t take long to identify a culprit. On Wednesday afternoon, the White House press office put out a statement in Trump’s name. “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” it said. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind . . . . Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well.” The statement goes on,“Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.”

The reason for Trump’s animus was obvious. “Fire and Fury” quotes Bannon, Trump’s former senior political adviser, as having described the June, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a group of people connected to Russia as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” and as saying that the meeting should have been reported to the F.B.I. The book contains myriad other damning comments about Trump and his family from Bannon and other Trump advisers.

There can be no doubt that Wolff relied on Bannon heavily. The book, a copy of which I obtained from the publisher, Henry Holt, on Wednesday, starts with the rumpled former investment banker having dinner with Roger Ailes, the late head of Fox News, in early January, 2017, and ends with Bannon standing outside the headquarters of Breitbart, the conservative news organization to which he returned after being ousted from the White House, in August. In the index, Bannon’s entry is considerably longer than anybody else’s except Trump’s.

Bannon wasn’t Wolff’s only source, though. The book is based on “conversations that took place over a period of eighteen months with the president, with most members of his senior staff—some of whom talked to me dozens of times—and with many people who they in turn spoke to,” Wolff writes in the author’s note. His original idea, he says, was to write a fly-on-the-wall account of Trump’s first hundred days. “The president himself encouraged this idea. But given the many fiefdoms in the White House that came into open conflict from the first days of the administration, there seemed no one person able to make this happen. Equally, there was no one to say ‘Go away.’ Hence I became more a constant interloper than an invited guest.”

Wolff’s methods will doubtless attract more scrutiny. In some places, he re-creates entire scenes, complete with dialogue, without explicitly identifying his sources. In others, he attributes withering comments about Trump to some of his current and former aides: “For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, the president was an ‘idiot.’ For Gary Cohn, he was ‘dumb as shit.’ For H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’ The list went on.” On Wednesday, two people quoted in the book, Tom Barrack, a longtime friend of Trump, and Katie Walsh, a former White House aide, denied having made the negative comments about Trump that Wolff attributed to them. “We know the book has a lot of things, so far that we’ve seen, that are completely untrue,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said.

Still, the over-all portrait that Wolff draws of a dysfunctional, bitterly divided White House in the first six months of Trump’s Presidency, before the appointment of John Kelly as chief of staff and the subsequent firing of Bannon, has the whiff of authenticity about it—and it echoes news coverage at the time. Other details are impossible to confirm but damning if true. Such was the animosity between Bannon and “Jarvanka”—Bannon’s dismissive term for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner—Wolff reports, that, during one Oval Office meeting, Bannon called Ivanka “a fucking liar,” to which Trump responded,“I told you this is a tough town, baby.” Wolff also quotes Bannon commenting gleefully after Trump decided to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, a decision that Ivanka opposed: “Score. The bitch is dead.”

Equally plausible is Wolff’s portrait of Trump as a one-dimensional figure who had no conception that he could win the 2016 election; little clue what to do after he did emerge victorious from the campaign trail; and virtually no interest in, or aptitude for, acquiring the skills and information needed to fulfill the role of President. “Here was, arguably, the central issue of the Trump presidency,” Wolff writes. The Commander-in-Chief “didn’t process information in any conventional sense—or, in a way, he didn’t process it at all.” He continues,
    Trump didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. If it was print, it might as well not exist. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semiliterate . . . . Some thought him dyslexic; certainly his comprehension was limited. Others concluded that he didn’t read because he didn’t have to, and that in fact this was one of his key attributes as a populist. He was postliterate—total television.

    But not only didn’t he read, he didn’t listen. He preferred to be the person talking. And he trusted his own expertise—no matter how paltry or irrelevant—more than anyone else’s. What’s more, he had an extremely short attention span, even when he thought you were worthy of attention.

Confirming long-running news accounts, Wolff reports that Trump often retires in the early evening to his bedroom, where he has three television screens, and interrupts his viewing only to converse by telephone with his friends and cronies, some of them fellow-billionaires. There are revealing, unconfirmed new anecdotes, too, about Trump’s sexism and narcissism. In one meeting, Wolff says, the President referred to Hope Hicks, his communications director, as “a piece of tail.” In another meeting, he described Sally Yates, the former acting Attorney General, whom he fired early in his term, after she refused to defend his original travel ban, as “such a c**t.”

As Wolff tells it, Trump is, ultimately, a self-fixated performer rather than a politician, and his primary goal is to monopolize public attention. (“This man never takes a break from being Donald Trump,” Wolff quotes Bannon as saying.) This depiction probably understates Trump’s devotion to making money, as well as his racism and nativism, both of which go back decades. But, in any case, even performer-Presidents have to make some decisions, and Wolff devotes a good deal of space to the most fateful call Trump has made so far: the firing of the F.B.I. director James Comey, last May. Whether Trump’s firing of Comey amounts to obstruction of justice is a central focus of the investigation being conducted by the special counsel, Robert Mueller, into the President’s behavior.

In Wolff’s account, the battle lines inside the White House were clearly drawn. Bannon, Reince Priebus, who served as chief of staff before Kelly, and Donald McGahn, the White House counsel, were adamantly opposed to firing Comey. “McGahn tried to explain that in fact Comey himself was not running the Russia investigation, that without Comey the investigation would proceed anyway,” Wolff writes. In an Oval Office meeting, Bannon told Trump, “This Russian story is a third-tier story, but you fire Comey and it’ll be the biggest story in the world.”

Ranged on the other side of the issue, according to Wolff, were some of Trump’s cronies outside the White House, including Chris Christie and Rudolph Giuliani, who “encouraged him to take the view that the DOJ was resolved against him; it was all part of a holdover Obama plot.” Even more important, Wolff goes on, was the concern of Charles Kushner, Jared’s father, “channeled through his son and daughter-in-law, that the Kushner family [business] dealings were getting wrapped up in the pursuit of Trump.” As the President considered whether to get rid of Comey, Jared and Ivanka “encouraged him, arguing the once possibly charmable Comey was now a dangerous and uncontrollable player whose profit would inevitably be their loss.”

But “Fire and Fury” also stresses that the prime mover in the firing of Comey was Trump himself. In the end, the President cut almost all of his advisers out of his final decision-making process:
    Jared and Ivanka were urging the president on, but even they did not know that the axe would shortly fall. Hope Hicks . . . didn’t know. Steven Bannon, however much he worried that the president might blow, didn’t know. His chief of staff didn’t know. And his press secretary didn’t know. The president, on the verge of starting a war with the FBI, the DOJ, and many in Congress, was going rogue.

Eight days after Trump fired Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take over the Russia investigation. Although the findings of Mueller’s probe aren’t yet known, and Trump’s lawyers insist that the probe will clear the President of any wrongdoing, Wolff was surely right to stress the momentousness of the decision to get rid of the “rat”— Trump’s term for Comey. Wolff recounts near the end of the book that, five months after Comey’s firing, Bannon was predicting the collapse of Trump’s Presidency. Speaking in Breitbart’s headquarters, which Bannon refers to as the Breitbart Embassy, Bannon told people there was a 33.3-per-cent chance that the Mueller investigation would lead to Trump’s impeachment, a 33.3-per-cent chance that Trump would resign, “perhaps in the wake of a threat by the cabinet to act on the Twenty-Fifth Amendment,” and a 33.3-per-cent chance that he would “limp to the end of his term. In any event, there would certainly not be a second term, or even an attempt at one. ‘He's not going to make it,’ said Bannon at the Breitbart Embassy. ‘He’s lost his stuff.’ ”

10 things from the explosive new book drawing fire and fury from Trump
Dylan Stableford, Senior Editor, Yahoo News•January 4, 2018

Journalist Michael Wolff’s upcoming book about President Trump’s first year in office, “Fire and Fury,” is sending shockwaves through the administration. On Wednesday, the White House released an extraordinary statement denouncing Steve Bannon for his devastating remarks about Trump in the book, saying the president’s former chief strategist had “lost his mind.”

It was one of three separate statements from the administration about Wolff’s book, which will be published Jan. 9. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was “furious” and “disgusted” by Bannon’s comments, and described the book as “trashy tabloid fiction.”

o what in the book has Trump so worked up? Excerpts published by the Hollywood Reporter and New York magazine and a separate report on the book posted by the Guardian paint the picture of a chaotic and dysfunctional administration filled with backstabbing and infighting, and led by a commander in chief compared by one confidant to a “semiliterate” child.

Below are 10 notable revelations from the excerpts released so far.

1. Trump’s public defenders privately lamented having to defend the president

Read details here:

2. Rupert Murdoch described Trump as a “f***ing moron”
[See link above]

3. Aides quickly became frustrated by Trump’s inability to comprehend basic policy briefings

4. Trump was increasingly repeating stories and could not recognize old friends
5. Bannon thought the infamous Trump tower meeting was “treasonous”
... [I always thought it was, in fact, high treason]

6. Bannon also believed that the Mueller investigation would “crack Don Junior like an egg”
7. Ivanka Trump has mused about becoming president
8. Ivanka was known to make fun of her father’s comb-over
9. Trump’s eccentricities were on display when he moved into the White House
10. Donald Trump didn’t even want to be president
According to Wolff, the unexpected victory “set the stage for the chaos and dysfunction that have persisted throughout his first year in office.”

“The mistaken outcome trusted by everyone in Trump’s inner circle — that they would lose the election — wound up exposing them for who they really were,” Wolff says.

And she wants to be the first woman president!!! Eek

Ivanka Trump is 'as dumb as a brick' according to Steve Bannon, new book claims
Clark Mindock, The Independent

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon once called President Donald Trump's daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump "dumb as a brick", according to the latest excerpt from a book that claims to provide a near-inside view of the tumult within the West Wing during the first year of Mr Trump's presidency.

Mr Bannon's quote is detailed in an excerpt provided to the Wall Street Journal. The book has been met critically by some who point out seeming factual inaccuracies. The White House has also denied many of the allegations.

The former White House advisor, who left the White House to run Breitbart News, didn't respond to requests for comment from that newspaper, but a source close to him reportedly did not deny the varacity of the insult.

Mr Trump himself attacked Mr Bannon after the excerpts -- which included comments from Mr Bannon saying that a previous meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians in Trump Tower was "treasonous" -- saying that his former strategist had nothing to do with his campaign, or his time as president.

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency," Mr Trump wrote in a statement distributed by the White House. "When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind."

Mr Bannon reportedly had a strained relationship with much of the top White House during the nearly seven months he was there. In addition to the apparent conflict with Ms Trump, Mr Bannon frequently sparred with her husband, Jared Kushner, as well as former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

The "treasonous" comments in the book's manuscript revolve around a meeting that has become a focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. The meeting was reportedly set up by Donald Trump Jr after he received an email from a Russian-linked source, who promised he could connect him with a Russian-linked lawyer who could deliver dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Mr Bannon indicated that he felt that taking the meeting was ill-advised, and that they would have been wiser to take the meeting in a nondescript location, with lawyers, and that notifying the FBI may have been a smart move.

Publisher rejects Trump's book demand
‘Fire and Fury’ Release Moves Up to Friday as Publisher Rejects Trump’s Cease and Desist
Henry Holt and Co. moves up the release of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" despite demands by the president's lawyers to pull it.
'Proceeding with the publication' »
Ted Johnson, Variety

Publisher Henry Holt & Co. said that it was moving forward with the release of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” despite demands by President Trump’s personal lawyers to cease plans for publication.

“Henry Holt confirms that we received a cease and desist letter from an attorney for President Trump,” Patricia Eisemann, a spokeswoman for Henry Holt, said in a statement. “We see ‘Fire and Fury’ as an extraordinary contribution to our national discourse, and are proceeding with the publication of the book.”

Michael Wolff, the author of the book, said on Twitter that the publication date will now be on Friday. “Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President,” he wrote.

Trump’s attorneys sent Wolff and Henry Holt a cease and desist letter, demanding that they abandon plans for the book’s release. They claim that the excerpts and other portions released from the book are defamatory, and they gave Wolff and his publisher until Friday to respond to their demands.

Moving up the date makes sense from a publicity standpoint: Wolff is due to appear on “Today” on Friday and “Meet the Press” on Sunday. The challenge that Trump’s team would have in halting the book’s publication is in legal precedent against prior restraint, an issue that is at the center of the new movie, “The Post,” about the Washington Post’s 1971 decision to publish the Pentagon Papers.

Trump’s attorney Charles Harder said in the letter to Wolff and Henry Holt that “your publication of the false/baseless statements about Mr. Trump gives rise to, among other claims, defamation by libel, defamation by libel per se, false light invasion of privacy, tortious interference and contractual relations, and inducement of breach of contract.”

The book portrays Trump as unfit and unprepared for the demands of the presidency, and of a chaotic, infighting staff that surrounded him in the first six months of his presidency. But it also quotes numerous loyal supporters — like Tom Barrack of Colony Capital — as disparaging him. Adios reported on Thursday that Wolff has recordings of dozens of hours of interviews with White House staffers.

Wolff had access to the White House for the book, but it is unclear just how many times he interviewed Trump himself.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Thursday that “there are numerous examples of falsehoods that take place in the book. ”

She said that a passage in which Trump appears unaware of who John Boehner is was “pretty ridiculous considering the majority of you have seen photos and, frankly, some of you have even tweeted out that the President not only knows him but has played golf with him, tweeted about him. I mean, that’s pretty simple and pretty basic. ”

“Again, there are numerous mistakes, but I’m not going to waste my time or the country’s time going page by page, talking about a book that’s complete fantasy and just full of tabloid gossip, because it’s sad, pathetic, and our administration and our focus is going to be on moving the country forward,” she said.

Try NOT to Laugh.. Trump and his Lackeys Now Pretending Bannon was just a "Hang Around"
[Well, Pappadopoulos was just making and serving coffee at the conference table he was sitting at, two seats from the Prez...]

Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, has made so many headlines, it appears to be an even bigger story than the “bomb cyclone” snowstorm slated to hit the East Coast early Thursday morning. Wolff’s book “paints a stunning picture of dysfunction in the Trump campaign and White House,” CNN host Anderson Cooper said. Much of the hoopla surrounding the bombshell book centers on quotes from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who Cooper described as President Donald Trump’s “campaign mastermind.”

Although headlines have focused on Bannon’s confessions, the host noted that Wolff claims to have based Fire and Fury on interviews with more than 200 Trump White House and campaign staffers — including the president himself. Excerpts from the book include claims that the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t name three priorities of the administration a mere six weeks into Trump’s tenure and the then-candidate’s apparent disinterest in learning about the Constitution while on the campaign trail. Though not related directly to the campaign or White House, Wolff also included a salacious excerpt about how the president bedded his friend’s wives.
