Wolff was brought in by Steve Bannon. Everything in that book is just Steve riffing to Wolff for hours on end about his particular brand of craziness, none of it is based in reality. Bannon is a miserable human being who weaseled his way into the administration, and once Trump realized the guy was a fraud he kicked him to the curb. Bannon's pissed now, so of course it's no surprise that this book comes out now.
This book is nothing but the paranoid delusions of Steve Bannon as told by Michael Wolff.
Michael Wolff started his interview with Stephen Colbert on Monday's Late Show by suggesting that President Trump might be watching, because "one of the remaining contacts I have said he asked for my media schedule today. Wolff said he didn't expect his book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, to cause such a splash, and when Colbert pointed out that it paints Trump as a mentally unfit illiterate "gibbering to his cheeseburger," Wolff explained, "I thought we knew this."
Colbert asked Wolff about his author's note on believing the events he recorded to be true, and Wolff explained that in the Trump White House, "everybody is telling you different stories," or rather "lying in their own particular way," so he had to use his "judgment" to discern "what versions of stories to include." Colbert said he was conflicted reading the book. "As a comedian, sure, I'd love all this to be true so I can make jokes about it," he said. "But as a citizen, I don't want any of it to be true. And you don't have sourcing, at least not listed, for everything you've got in here, so how much of it should I believe?" "You should believe all of it," Wolff said. "That's the alarming thing, that this is all true."

Anybody else noticed Wolf isn't fit to be a writer......

my point exactly. Big difference having audio proof from source as he claimed earlier or having that proof from, like you said, 4th hand rumors... Seems like a libel case more and more isn't it?
and rightly so...

As a writer, I always tape interviews. Every writer I know does the same. Wolff, claims to have hours and hours of tapes.
Actually they aren't tapes but SDHC media, recording to a unit smaller than a box of altoids.
Perhaps the WH should take Wolff to court so we can listen to the tapes.
