This is Trump’s standard M.O.
President Trump is reportedly attempting to stop the publication of “Fire and Fury,” Michael Wolff’s explosive new book about his campaign and presidency.
The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig tweeted early Thursday morning that Trump’s attorneys have sent a cease-and-desist letter to Wolff and book publisher Henry Holt & Company, demanding that they do not publish the book and issue an apology to the president.
Welp, he just guaranteed this book to be a #1 bestseller.
He also sent one to Steve Bannon:
Trump also reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bannon late Wednesday, saying that he violated a non-disclosure agreement by speaking with Wolff, and accusing him of making “disparaging” and “outright defamatory” statements.
A statement from Trump attorney Charles Harder said that the president plans to take legal action against Bannon.
First, which Trump genius decided it would be a good idea to give Michael Wolff the run of the West Wing? Second, it’s become clearer that people closest to Trump are the biggest leakers. They were too busy trying to undermine each other to consider their words. *We already knew most of this, btw.
And third, none of this is funny. Trump is a mentally unbalanced, dangerous, completely uninformed moron (I use this word because it’s a favorite among those closest to him) who, unless Republicans intervene, just might get everyone killed.
