Reading the Amazon page for the book a lot of the reviewers say they brought the book to stiff Trump stupid attempt to stop it



When a lunatic sitting in the whitehouse DEMANDS that a publisher halts the publication of a book that exposes that lunacy, I did what every red-blooded American would do. I immediately preordered it just to say '*F*** Y** #45. You can poison the air, land and water and make horrendous policies that hurt everything I hold dear, but keep your tiny ugly hands off my book shelves."


"When a lunatic sitting in the whitehouse DEMANDS that a publisher halts the publication of a book that exposes that lunacy,"

This is simply too perfect.

Trump's a little whinging baby, can't stand a line of criticism by anyone.

Any other president, Dem or Repub would simply ignore the thing. Because Trump has no ability to handle the real world, because he has no ability as president to understand that he will be criticized, he goes flippin nuts, thereby ensuring that far more people read the book than had he blown it off and said "Stuff happens, can't keep everyone happy all the time. I wish Steve well."

That would've confined to criticism. But, no, it's now "Sloppy Steve" because people who criticize him are "losers."

What's wrong, Snowflake? Can't take the heat?

LOL - He'll be gone in 6 months. He will cut a deal with Mueller, one the preserves some of his wealth and he doesn't want to be presidentin' anyway.

And the Alt-Righters hear line up on his side without a thought, literally, claiming there's no evidence against him, evidently not even reading the 3 (or 4?) emails changing about the meeting with the Russians, and the fact that literally every single person around him in the White House has some significant connection to Russians.

Again, how could that not be "an elemental thread of the book"? If you write a truthful book about liars then there are going to be lies in that book. If the author was to censor those lies then he'd make himself a liar. Maybe we agree about this, but OP was making it out like Wolff had discredited himself. And I agree, we see a lot of headlines of that caliber.

a reply to: UKTruth

And what he said on TV does not contradict with the book.


If you have staff in the White House telling you 4 different versions of the same meeting or feeling that day, who did what where, you then have no idea which person is telling the truth, you DO know that some are lying and selling each other out.

That becomes the elemental theme of the book, the White House staff is willing to drive a stake in the heart of anyone else, while trying to puff their own chest, oh, and they are ALL talking a lot.

He has many tapes, you know? That is an elemental part of the book, that he can prove that 2-5 people gave different accounts of whats happening, the truth is a hard to define moving target with these people.

Not a surprise, all one had to do is watch Trump through the campaign and his own speeches which would vary from day to day.

if you cant see the ridiculous smear campaign run against trump since day one then your not a smart person.

this book is nothing more than a continuation of that smear campaign and a way to bring in profit off easily
propagated monkeys, who are easily punched around by "divide and conquer" techniques, which is most of the population.

The only reason I can see this type of an attack of a president is out of fear of what he will expose or the derailment of an agenda [few of us are aware of this agenda].

What is funny is none of you really give a flea-fart about the author. None of you want to look at this history. What many people have said about him and his journalism in the past just because it is a book that makes Trump and his team look bad.


Im not really interested in anything other than the facts, IS WHATS IN THE BOOK TRUE. If it is none of the rest of this rhetoric rally matters.

Facts are what should matter, not what people WANT to believe

What we DO know is the actions by Trump in regard to this book, is his typical MO when anyone says anything about him he doesnt like. We saw it in the campaign, we had heard the reports in the past about how he treated reporters, we saw how he treated people in his past who said anything negative about him.

This is typical behavior from Trump and its not admeriable or presidential.

Bottom line is that ALL of the threads that were created using 'info' to prove Trump turmoil should really be in a Hoax bin since the author himself is saying that there is little truth to any of it.

The hoax bin is not for hoaxes, you know that don't you?

True; that is why the "QAnon" material isn't there.

Donald Trump's very public personal history is not a "smear campaign." He leased land from the Jersey Mob to run a casino, which his poor business skills resulted in bankruptcy. His lack of business acumen resulted in American banks refusing to lend to him. Two divorces. Violations of labor laws. Partnering with Russian mobsters at the Trump Soho. His tweets are evidence of his petulance and bad judgement. Of course, to know his history you would need to have been living in the United States in the eighties and nineties... and paying attention to his clownish antics.

And thats the thing. Throughout the election he kept garnering more support, and i just kept staring in disbelief.

But then his detractors ignored 2 full decades of his history in favor of the dossier that was obviously at least partially made up

His opposition, on the whole, is less intellectually capable than him by all appearances. Which is remarkable honestly.

He didn't lease land to run a casino he leased land for his casino. As for mob connections in real estate in the 1980s in new York if you didn't work with the mob you wouldn't get anything built. They owned most of construction and all of cement. Same with casino business in new Jersey they owned construction and labor if a casino didn't play ball food deleveries stopped as well as trash pickup. Realtors to be successful had to deal with the mob and that was normal it's what they do.

Oh and almost forgot buy off politicians in new York to get approval on buildings.

Hehe, I am really really enjoying this. I am personally being the most patient I have been in this presidency in waiting for drama to play out.
Sophisticated minds create sophisticated schemes.

Picture this precedent. Steve Bannon and DJT were setting traps for leakers. This is true.

They certainly were aware of this tabloid author interviewing staff. This guy writes these kind of books and it is no secret to them and they know it is coming. For a sophisticated mind this is a wonderful opportunity. For a pair or small cadre of sopisticated minds it is a golden opportunity.
If I were to believe the present analysis of this as it unfolds Bannon and DJT got blindsided and never saw this coming and want to quash it. This tabloid sensationalist author and his book must have got the best of them. Time to remove a president using the 25th amendment. Haha

PUHsLeaze, take a look at who is really being exposed in this exercise in trolling. Who is trolling who?

I just love this stuff. It is brilliant stuff.
Sometimes you have to play a fool to fool the fool that was foolish enough to try and fool you.

Sophisticated trolling at its finest. Sometimes the layers and precision make me think it has to be AI behind the trolling DJT and SB execute. David Copperfield type stuff. I mean how hard is it to be decieved by having our attention to the wrong hand while the other hand is busy unseen? It is amazingly easy if your audience percieves you as a doofus pre-supposed.

He wasn't president he was a real estate investor. As such yes it was the only way to get things built. Why do you think during his campaign he even discussed paying off politicians he admitted he did it.

This guy knows nothing. Interviewed No Cabinet members. He never interviewed the VP. He says he 'talked' to the president but never interviewed him or talked directly to him. He even says he wants to know where his nickname is.
Hope Hicks...he totally gets her wrong and says that she is his top adviser.



He even says he 'chatted' as they were friends. He gets ripped in this interview...

"Smear Campaign"?

He appoints Mike Flynn to NSA director, a guy with established links to many countries that he withheld information about, is that "smearing" Trump?

Trump admitted he fired Comey for investigating the Russian matter, a clear case of obstruction.
Is that a smear campaign?

The meeting in the Trump Tower involved every senior staff member of the Trump election team and there are emails to prove it, they were there to get dirt on Hillary despite the FBI warning them that they'll be played by Russian agents.
Is that a smear campaign

After Manafort, Flynn, Tillerson being a friend of the motherland award winner, all get appointed to elevated positions and have links to Russia (as does Trump), then Trump's first real policy position was to lift sanctions on Russia,
Is it a smear campaign to ask hard questions as to whether that was the pay-off? Congress voted 98-0 to take it out of his hands, and he said he didn't like it, but signed it. Veto proof.

Whether it was or was not a smear campaign, is it proper in America to call for a ban of a book that says bad things about you? Obama had more disgusting lies written about him than any president i can recall, he seemed to somehow not mention it, never mind bother him.

So, why are you leaping to defend snowflake here, who evidently can't take an investigation of him - even though Hillary got about 9 and Obama didn't call for the end of them, but your snowflake can't take an investigation, nor can he take criticism, questions, or even a book that quotes the Alt-Right's former hero, until he said something bad.

Why can't snowflake take it???

Why can't his supporters take it???

It's a "coup" or "criminal cabal"??? Perhaps you need to read a bio on Mueller and see why George W Bush appointed lifelong Republican Mueller.

Run along, snowflake.

And no-one ever made an issue of the real estate deals the Clintons made before Bill was president....

A "Smear" campaign? A supporter of Trump accuses other people of "Smear" campaign against him. Firstly, the hypocrisy (Obama's passport, falsehoods "He LITERALLY created ISIS", the paedophilia ring claim which Trump propagated,his approach to Hillary Clinton (as in it being a negative campaign as opposed to a positive one about himself), "Fake News" without evidence as to escape unwanted questioning and to target certain organisations who were asking those questions, mocking the disabled journalist as a method to discredit him etc.

I'd call all of these smear tactics, they are statements and ambitions to damage others' reputations. I don't mind it so much if there is evidence behind the claim, but that's the one thing Trump never gives: evidence or reasoning. Also, I'm not saying he was alone in this either, so please don't misconstrue me in that way.

He's used these types of "I'm the big bully" tactics all his life, Eminent domain, forced bankruptcy, forced evictions etc. These are his MO. The amount of business' he dissolved in New York because of harnessing the rights to the project in joint name with with small family business' is incredible, the project fails and these tiny companies are destroyed because of it. It's a cruel, selfish move.

P.S. People often bring up his "Small loan of one million dollars" from his father. This is demonstrably untrue as he also got many properties to look after and sell which is vastly more than he claims he got.
