The newest liberal attempt to slander the president comes in the form of a book entitled Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff. Claiming to portray life “inside the Trump White House,” the mainstream media and left-leaning reporters are happily talking about the allegation it contains.
Just hitting the shelves, the book is already proving to be full of inaccuracies. In fact, the author was forced to admit that, even though he makes statements credited to cabinet members, he did not actually interview them.

The errors are piling up and while not interviewing people working in the White House may not be exactly an error, it is indicative of the rest of the book. While being interviewed on CBS This Morning, Norah O’Donnell asked Wolff;
“Did you speak to any members of the president’s Cabinet for this book?”
Wolff clearly stated, “I did not.”
How on earth can you write a book about the inner workings of the White House if you do not speak with anyone employed there? Who were Wolff’s sources then? CNN perhaps since they have done such an accurate job reporting on what is occurring with President Trump.
.@JesseBWatters on Michael Wolff's @WhiteHouse book 'Fire and Fury': "The main point of the book was that @POTUS didn't want to win [the election]. If he didn't want to win, why did he 'collude' with the Russians to win? The whole thing doesn't make sense." pic.twitter.com/QfuTxwcNkw

Wolff also claims he spent almost three hours with the president in order to write the book. O’Donnell reminds him, “The president denies he ever spoke to you for this book, at all.”
That may or may not be a problem since Wolff admits he lied to the president of the United States, something liberals will celebrate if it is true;
“I probably think he had no idea he was speaking to me for this book. When I would meet the president in the White House we would chat as though we were friends.”
O’Donnell points out that greeting President Trump and saying hello is not an interview. Clearly small details like that don’t matter to Wolff. Some other errors that The Daily Caller found just in the first couple chapters include:
- Misspelling a CNN political analyst’s name.
- Misidentifying the position that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was nominated for.
- Saying a certain reporter was at a restaurant the reporter says he has never been to.
Via WashPost's @MarkBerman: This page in Wolff's book has 3 errors. @HilaryRosen's name is misspelled. Wilbur Ross was the commerce nominee, not labor. And Berman says he's never been to this restaurant. pic.twitter.com/tRqxmU3Sct

If this is the “bombshell” that the left was hoping to base their latest calls for impeachment, they had better start working on the next plan.
