Why has the 'Fire and Fury' book angered Trump so much?

Why has the 'Fire and Fury' book angered Trump so much?

As the president defended his tweets, which Twitter had already mocked in excess, #StableGenius trended to the top spot on Trump's favorite form of social media.

In excerpts of Wolff's book that were published online earlier this week, Bannon was quoted as calling the meetings between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer with links to the Kremlin "treasonous". White supremacists use the term "globalist" as a euphemism for "Jewish" a the group targeted by Bannon includes former Goldman Sachs banker Gary Cohn who, like Kushner, is Jewish.

In the letter, Bannon apologizes to the president's son Donald Trump Jr., says that Trump is the only candidate that could have defeated the "Clinton apparatus" and claims that comments made in the book were not aimed at Trump Jr., but rather at Paul Manafort.

"The one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common - they all say 'he is like a child.' And what they mean by that he has a need for immediate gratification".

Wolff said Saturday that his book will "end" the presidency of the former real estate mogul.

He said it was "remarkable to have a sitting US President tweeting that he is very smart and a genius and a stable one at that ..."

Wolff's book, published Friday, paints Trump as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office and spends his evenings eating cheeseburgers in bed, watching television, and talking on the phone to old friends.

The head of the United States Studies Centre at Sydney University, Simon Jackman, said Fire and Fury would bring questions of Donald Trump's fitness and temperament "fundamentally back to centre-stage". "We receive a lot of phone calls". Trump has made efforts to discredit "Fire and Fury", claiming that Wolff had "zero access to the White House" and that he "never spoke to Wolff".

A store clerk at Calabasas-based Barnes & Noble said the shop will receive about 35 copies by January 19.

Lisa Kingsley, the owner of Books On The Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, which sells used books, said the release of the popular book prompted her to order a few new books. "We usually don't buy new books but this book has been very popular".
