'Fire and Fury' author disputes Trump, says he 'spoke to the president'

The current head of Breitbart News allegedly told Wolff that Donald Trump Jr's meeting with Russians at Trump Tower in June 2016 was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

The White House has slammed the book, with press secretary Sarah Sanders calling it "complete fantasy", and an attorney for Trump sending a legal threat to the book's author and publisher.

"I think that the advice for President Trump hasn't changed".

Mr Trump, said to have been shell-shocked when the election results came in, has blasted Mr Bannon as having "lost his mind" in the fallout over the damaging comments. By Wednesday afternoon, hours after the first excerpts appeared, the book was ranked No. 1 in sales on Amazon.com.

After excerpts from the book leaked early last week, the White House decried it as pure "fiction", but the president reserved his fiercest anger for Bannon, who was pushed from the White House in August yet - over the objection of many aides - remained in Trump's orbit, with the two men speaking by phone occasionally.

Sign posted at the door for Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe indicating that the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" is sold out at the bookstore located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington.

After reviewing Sanders's dismissal of the book and its contents, Noah pointed out that the terms she used-"outrageous", "fraudulent, "tabloid gossip"-could easily apply to several claims the president himself has repeatedly made".

"It's really going to be a book that has some legs", he predicted. He also said he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration. "I don't know, but it certainly was not off the record".

Dean is hardly the first to question Trump's fitness for office or compare him to Nixon, who resigned in 1974.

'Mostly, ' said Bannon, 'he went to Russia and he thought he was going to meet Putin. Wolff said like any journalist he has recordings and notes and is "in every way comfortable" with everything he reported.

"My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on earth at this point", he said. She is a billionaire GOP donor and co-owner of Breitbart, the populist website that Bannon helps run. "I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breach for this president's efforts to make America great again". You shouldn't have said it from the beginning, but now we have to fix it'. "'Not us, it's him'". "So we've been taking bets in the store about who will actually be here". "They all say he is like a child". It also raises serious questions about the role of the White House counsel. "He's like a pinball just shooting off the sides".

"They say he's a moron, idiot".

This was the spark which lit the whole fuse of course.

"This man does not read, does not listen". According to Stazkin, Wolff, who has written other best-sellers, likely received an advance in excess of six figures.

"I think the president of the United States has shown he's very very capable; very, very talented", conservative commentator Ed Martin tells Weekend Edition. This is an incredibly strong and good leader. Bannon, he said, had "very little to do with our historic victory".

"I've never questioned his mental fitness". He had earlier boosted its profile when he sent a cease-and-desist letter to his former chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, a major source for the book.

Sanders spoke Friday on "Fox and Friends" Friday about Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".
