New book "The Trump White House" seems to neutralize Fire and Fury
Well, there is an antidote to Wolff’s “Fire and Fury”. That would be Ronald Kessler’s “The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game”, available on Amazon today, 304 pages.
I can’t find any conventional “professional” reviews yet. But Devan Cole discusses the book on CNN on an April 1 interview with Jake Tapper, where the book claims that Kellyanne Conway is the chief leaker.
The Amazon link is here and has some reviews, some of which think the book is objective and some claim it is Trump propaganda.
I’ll order it soon for a more full review.
Trey Yingst of OANN said he had already read it today and expected to see Trump tweet about it! Young adults recently in college are used to hundreds of pages of reading a day (like my own 50 pages of poetry for every English class at GWU, or Jack Andraka’s doing all his homework on airplanes -- how about memorizing nomenclature for organic chemistry). That’s a lot more reading that Trump can tolerate, beyond his Fox news on the idiot box (or plasma screen).
Trump does respect people (including journalists) whom he thinks could have won out on his “The Apprentice” reality show.
