Many Republicans are disputing some of the claims, ideas, and facts in the new Michael Wolff book, “Fire And Fury”, which was supposed to be about Trump’s first 100 days in office.
One of the claims in the book is that Donald Trump did not want to be president. As radio syndicate Rush Limbaugh pointed out, if Trump did not want to be president, why would he collude with Russia to keep Hillary from winning the presidency?
“If he didn’t want to win, what the hell was he colluding with anybody for to try to win?”, Limbaugh said.
Keep in mind, the Michael Wolff book was released 6 months late. Why? As Limbaugh points out, “You cannot put this book out with one of the central themes being that Donald Trump didn’t want to win and didn’t expect to win. You can’t put that book out right smack-dab in all of that stuff last year about Trump colluding…Yeah, the guy never wanted to be president. He never expected to win.” If you want to undercut the Russia investigation, that’s what you would do.”
And now that the Russia investigation has been cast away, and the obstruction claims have been cast away, the media is now back to using simplicities to state that president Trump is mentally unfit. It’s the same old retread attack the Democrats have been using for every Republican candidate for years.
As Rush Limbaugh later pointed out as well “If this book had come out six months ago — think of that — if this book had come out in September, it would have undermined everything they were using at that point to get rid of Trump. That didn’t work. And it may well be this obstruction angle isn’t working because now the entire focus is once again back to Trump being insane and unfit and unstable, which is also not new. It’s something they have routinely used about every Republican president in our lifetimes.
Now, as to the Wolff book, I learned over the weekend that I’m mentioned in this thing…but it’s totally false. And I’m just gonna throw my experience of being in this book in the column of “it’s fake…There’s not even a single word in this reference that is anywhere near the truth.”
“Fire and Fury” has caught the attention of the media, but time will show that the book was written for the sole purpose of trying to bring down President Trump.
