Donald Trump has been having a nonstop temper tantrum over the fact that journalist Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” trashes him so mercilessly and is getting so much attention from the media.
Once excerpts of the book were released and published days ago, Trump became even more unhinged than usual as he lashed out at Wolff, the media, and even former members of his own team like former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who has now been nicknamed “Sloppy Steve” by Trump. The tell-all book has Trump freaking out over its damaging contents, and his meltdowns have only resulted in the book’s publisher releasing it early.
But despite the fact that he’s clearly lost this battle against Wolff’s book, Trump just isn’t giving up – and it’s making him look even worse. Early this morning, Trump sent out yet another tweet about the book in a pathetic attempt to defend himself. Trump invoked former president Ronald Reagan, who “had the same problem” and “handled it well.” Of course, no Trump tweet is complete without a blatant lie, and this one contained a big one as Trump promised that he will handle the “Fake Book” well. Trump tweeted:
I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!”
Trump’s promise to handle the negative attention he’s getting from Wolff’s book with grace is hilarious, because he’s already proven that he isn’t capable of it. Trump has absolutely flipped out and come undone over this book, and his rage is now out of control. When has Trump handled anything well, anyway?!
Over the last several days, Trump has slammed the book on a daily basis and trashed his own team members for betraying him. Trump even sent a pathetic cease-and-desist letter to Wolff in an attempt to stop the book from being released. To tell America that he’s going to handle the release of this book well is a joke, and everyone knows it!
