Micheal Wolff had only one goal in mind when writing “Fire and Fury” and in an interview with BBC Radio on Saturday, Wolff boasted to host Nick Robinson that “the story” that he told, “will finally end this presidency” once and for all.
Wolff explains in an author’s note within the book that he was not certain all the allegations, accusations and statements in the book were true, which of course is now casting significant doubt on the entirety of the book’s contents.
He says that he knows some of his ‘sources’ were flatly lying to him. Others said things that were completely contradictory in nature.
And yet, many of those sources and what they had to say were nevertheless included in the book. Why would that be, given this tome isn’t supposed to be a work of fiction?
In his author’s note, Wolff explained that he and the publisher are including them, “allowing the reader to judge” whether the sources’ claims are true.
Oh. Well, then.
“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book,” he wrote.
His admission alone accounts for why there are so many discrepancies and his admission that some (most) of what he wrote is pure fabrication. He purposely embellished and lied to make President Trump and his administration look incompetent.
In the interview, Wolff’s self-glorification was brought on when Robinson questioned the effectiveness of the book alone and wondered if it would help the Russia investigation in any way since that had a greater chance of getting rid of Trump, MRC reports.
“Now, all of this is fascinating, it’s an insight, it’s gossip some of it, it may not be enough to stop him from being president. Whereas, the allegations about Russia may be,” Robinson prefaced. “Do you believe that anything in the book will actually change the chances of the allegations of collusion with Russia being found to be true and therefore leading to the impeachment of the President?”
According to Wolff, his book was lifting the veil from people’s eyes and exposing the President for being a mentally unstable person unfit for office:
You know, I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect. That, the story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can’t do his job. The emperor has no clothes. Suddenly everywhere people are going: ‘Oh my God, it’s true, he has no clothes.’ That’s the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end this – that will end this presidency.
Towards the end of the interview, Robinson wanted to know what Wolff’s conclusion was and if he thought that Trump was “dangerous in the White House.” “Yeah, it’s not ideal that he’s in the White House,” Wolff responded.
Wolff then discredited the positive effect Trump has had on the economy. “He hardly has a staff anymore, since most people have left the White House. And it may be that he will do nothing. The economy is booming possibly because you’ll have someone who’s not capable of actually implementing any policies or regulation,” he chided.
It’s truly chilling that Wolff thinks that his book “will finally end this presidency” especially when he has admitted that he doesn’t know if all the claims made in the book were actually true. But truth doesn’t matter to the liberal media when the goal is to attack and discredit this President.
