Author Michael Wolff has been making the rounds of the mainstream media this month after making a series of outrageous claims about President Donald Trump in his new book “Fire and Fury.” Now, however, Trump is firing back at him in a huge way.
The Daily Caller reported that Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to eviscerate Wolff and the mainstream media.
“So much Fake News is being reported,” Trump wrote. “They don’t even try to get it right, or correct it when they are wrong. They promote the Fake Book of a mentally deranged author, who knowingly writes false information. The Mainstream Media is crazed that WE won the election!”

In his book, Wolff portrays Trump as a chaotic leader in a White House full of aides who do not respect him or trust in his ability to his job. “Fire and Fury” also has incendiary quotes from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon targeting Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump.
This comes after Infowars reported that NBC’s Chuck Todd confronted Wolff on “Meet The Press” over the weekend about the many errors in his book.
“There are a lot of little errors—there’s a lot of them,” Todd told Wolff. “One page had three in one. Some of them may be copy edits, small factual errors, but it adds up. Why shouldn’t a reader be concerned about some of these mistakes?”
“I think a reader should read the book,” Wolff said, clearly trying to boost sales. “The book speaks for itself.”
When asked if he “regrets” the mistakes, Wolff smugly responded, “I think I mixed up a Mike Berman and a Mark Berman — for that, I apologize.”
However, this apology in itself was an error, because Wolff actually does say “Mark Berman” in his book. Washington Post national reporter Mark Berman instead called out Wolff for placing him at a breakfast that he didn’t attend, not for getting his name wrong.
“I have never had breakfast at the Four Seasons, never actually been there,” Berman tweeted on Friday.

Clearly, Wolff made so many errors in his book that even he can’t keep them straight.
