Michael Wolf “Garbage Author”, “Garbage Book”
Sunday in a national TV match up between President Donald Trump, via his White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, and “Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN got Hot, so hot that Mr. Tapper faded disgraced in-front of his national audience
Mr. Tapper’s interview turned ‘hot’ as Mr. Miller ripped “garbage author of a garbage book” – Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” and as the CNN “State of the Union” host questioned the truth in book’s details and the role of Steve Bannon in the White House.
“Your network’s been going 24/7 with all the salacious coverage, and I know it brings a lot of you guys a lot of joy to try to stick the knife in, but the reality is that page after page after page of the book is pure false,” Mr. Miller told a visibly shaken CNN host during a heated exchange during the 12-min appearance.
“I see sections of the book where events I participated in are described, and I have 1st-hand knowledge, as they’re described, they’re completely and utterly fraudulent.
“. . . You get 24 hours of negative anti-trump hysterical coverage on this network that led in recent weeks to spectacularly embarrassing false reporting.”
President Trump Tweeted 2Xfollowing the exchange, supporting Mr. Miller, denouncing Mr. Tapper as a “CNN flunky,” a vowing to win the argument of attacks in the media.
“. . .And with respect to the Trump Tower meeting that [Bannon’s] talking about [in Wolff’s book], Bannon was not even there when any of this went down. So, he’s not a remotely credible source on any of it.
“It reads like an angry, vindictive person spouting off to a highly discreditable author. The book is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction. And I also will say that the author is a garbage author of a garbage book. And the tragic thing about this — and there are many things about it that are unfortunate — but the portrayal of the president in the book is so contrary to reality, to the experience of those who work with him.”
When Mr. Miller continued with his support of our President, Mr. Tapper cut him off saying “I get it: There is one viewer that you care about right now [referring to Trump], and you’re being obsequious in order to please him. I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time.”
You should all know that the portrayal of our President in the Wolf book is so contrary to reality, to the experience of those who work with him that I have talked to.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week called Mr. Wolf’s suggestions about our President’s fitness “disgraceful and laughable.”
Steven Bannon has been torpedoed by President Trump, his stakeholders in Breitbart News and conservative media, he is now on his knees pleading for mercy, his political career destroyed.
Have a terrific week.
