Much is being made by the anti-Trumpers of a compilation of what is turning out to be lies and exaggerations entitled, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” by lib smear artist Michael Wolff.
For example, one lie was pointed out by the Daily Wire.
According to Wolff’s book, Trump met with media heavy weight Roger Ailes after his election win to discuss Washington. Rogers is said to have advised Trump:
“You need a son of a b*tch as your chief of staff. And you need a son of a bitch who knows Washington. You’ll want to be your own son of a b*tch, but you don’t know Washington.”
Wolff claims that when he asked who he should pick, Ailes suggested then-House Speaker John Boehner.
“Who’s that?” Trump is said to have replied.
How convenient that Wolff used a recently deceased individual to launch his smear, but it only took Daily Wire to post a Trump tweet from 2013 to prove Wolff a liar on this account.
Scary. President Obama told Boehner that the government doesn't have a spending problem http://t.co/MArtBvAp

FrontPage Mag also points out another lie by Wolff.
In “Fire and Fury”, it is alleged that billionaire and friend of Trump, Tom Barrack said to another friend regarding the President: “He’s not only crazy, he’s stupid.”
Barrack denied the story emphatically when contacted by frumpy Hillary-crony journo, Maggie Haberman from the New York Times. She tweeted on January 3, “Barrack said he spoke to Wolffe once, says he never said the quote attributed to him to Wolffe or anyone. ‘Totally false,’ Barrack said by phone just now.”
Another tweet followed that said, “Tom Barrack adds, ‘It’s clear to anyone who knows me that those aren’t my words and inconsistent with anything I’ve ever said.’ He says Wolffe never ran that quote by him to ask if it was accurate.”
Independent Journal Review (IJR) is now reporting that a Wolff depiction of Trump as not caring if he won the presidential race and his wife as hoping he lost is another example of ‘fake news’.
“Not only did Trump disregard the potential conflicts of his own business deals and real-estate holdings, he audaciously refused to release his tax returns. Why should he? Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.
“Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.”
Not wishing to waste time and effort on responding to another Wolff lie, one that has been around since the election night victory, First Lady Melania Trump let her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, reply:
“The book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section. Mrs. Trump supported her husband’s decision to run for President and in fact, encouraged him to do so. She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did.”
