Sales of wrong 'Fire and Fury' book are making people crack up

Following the release of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by author #Michael Wolff, Steven Bannon quickly came under fire from the president and eventually lost his job at the right-wing Breitbart News.

Bannon was also the recipient of an email Donald Trump Jr. sent to a group of senior Trump campaign officials notifying them that WikiLeaks had reached out, according to The Atlantic.

The president has been particularly aggrieved after the publication of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", which depicts his White House as chaotic, beset by infighting and incompetent, at least in the early days of his administration.

North Korea's Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in a commentary that robust sales for the book reflected "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the global community".

The idea has always been a Trump favorite: during the 2016 campaign, he often said existing rules should be somehow strengthened to take on what he called the "fake media", though it is unclear how.

While he has been criticised for "sloppy" reporting, Wolff said he spent seven months in the White House to produce what he says is the best account of the President's first year.

"I think what the American people want to see is fairness".

"The book is mistake after mistake after mistake", Sanders said at the White House press briefing Thursday.

Let me not go there.

Bannon is of interest to House investigators for his time working on the Trump campaign. He and other White House aides have blasted the book as inaccurate trash. But one of Trump's other attorneys, Michael Cohen, filed a separate suit against BuzzFeed on Tuesday over the site's publication of the Russian Federation dossier past year.

Later, Kimmel noted that Trump had reached a major milestone: "According to the Washington Post, which has been keeping track, yesterday, Trump told his 2000th lie since taking office". Quotes from the tweets such as "my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart", have since become fodder for late-night comedy hosts.

"I've had to put up with the fake news from the first day I announced that I would be running for president". Bannon has since said in a statement that he continues to support the president.

Some tend to think that to Steve Bannon, it's all a big game, and eventually he will find his way back into President Trump's good graces.

Wolff's publishers sped up the release of Fire and Fury after Trump threatened to sue the publisher.
