    • What do you think?
    • Why was it released now?
    • How accurate and credible is it?
    • Are there other "tell all" books coming from other insiders?
    • And will trump simply make this old news in 1-2 weeks by doing\saying things far worse than what is reported in the book?

    I think it is only another piece of the "games" being played out; the GOP itself is way too chicken to dare to say the guy is unfit; then a "book" is an good means to give attention to it. It works!

    The total lies of a mental patient; He said he was an "stable genius" then he said he was a "genius" while at school. However the dean at Warton said that he he was the worst student he ever had, who thought he "knew" it all. Finally he got a certificate "bought" by his father. I hope this is the beginning of the end.

    Also I hope the whole world will read this "book"

    Why does Trump get to lie and exaggerate without limit or recourse? It is discussed but nothing is done about it. The most powerful man in the world makes a mockery out of ethics.

    Yes Chet, I said so many times that the "vetting" of an President or high positions in the government is at fault here.

    The professor at Warton is not lying; Trump did not want to learn, he knew it all, except for bullying he got an A+. Even right now he's too lazy to read, let alone the Constitution as well the "laws of this country; he acts like any "dictator". But the problem is the "ethics laws"and plenty other laws/rules are a joke here. Corruption reigns unbridled, that gives the opening to get the "mob" into the White House. Like his appointments ; i.e. Miller, Jordan, Haley, Pompao, who all stand by him regardless of what the "book"shows.

    Because elections have consequences and the consequences of the 2016 election is a Congress that will protect their dear leader at all costs.

    Congress and Congress alone can reign in an out of control President. The courts can make it more difficult for him, but that's all they can do.

    He sure does. Bernie or busters should have thought about that before they handed him the keys to our nuclear codes.

    I ordered the Canadian version of this book from the local library yesterday. They told me that there were 600 people on the waiting list for Michael Wolff's book.

    I dont understand why you start this but Bernie or busters did not nominate a candidate that could not beat the worst candidate in the history of the world. I came on this sight before Trump was an issue in 2015 supporting Bernie because I said Hillary could not win. That was at the beginning of the campaign. So put the blame on the people that supported and nominated Hillary. Blame the status quo incrementalist for abandoning the real problems of the country. Trump didn't want to win the election or be president. It was dumped on him.

    Wow. That's crazy.

    I downloaded it on Audible, but I haven't started it yet. I'm actually debating whether I want to or not because I have a feeling it's only going to piss me off. I think it will piss me off because it seems like it will only reinforce what I and so many other people already know about Donald.

    I have the book. It makes me feel good because it "Generally" confirms a lot leaks that have occured over past months that the WH has denied over and over. He is the egomaniac with the skills of little league coach who is now has a guaranteed 4 year contract coaching in the major leagues, and he doesn't even understand the basics rules of baseball. "What do you mean three strikes and his out? Everyone on my team gets unlimited strikes and anything but a home run doesn't count"

    But, I don't believe the book is trying to be fair to trump.If the book is being fair, trump is far far worse than past rumors.

    That's one of the best descriptions of our current predicament that I've heard yet.

    I was going to buy the book. It's in my cart at Amazon. But then I already know much of what is in it. Just about every journalist on this planet has a review and comment that you can read on the internet...not to mention all the readers reviews on Amazon.

    I think I'll pass on this one. It's become too populist on the left and doesn't substitute for a campaign based on the issues. Furthermore, as some reviewers have indicted, it's not a very good literary piece of work.

    It would be like watching a suspense movie where everyone had already told you what the key moments are to look for.

    You sound like Trump; he does not read because he knows it all already. Ha ha.

    I was watching Morning Joe when Mika kicked off Wolff because she got so angry with him; he wrote in his book that trump was having an affair with someone very close to him. He won't provide any name, but he is allowing rumors spread without protecting some innocent people. Mika got so ticked she abruptly ended the interview. When they came back from beak, both Mika and Wolff were gone. Mika stay off air for at 5-10 minutes to cool down.

    It's not the first time I've seen her totally loose it, and need to leave the set for several minutes to calm down. One time she had laughing fit and she couldn't stop, and ran off set.
