    Question Do You Plan To Read "Fire And Fury"?



    Amazon has tagged this the #! bestseller in books and it hasn't been released yet. That's just off the advance orders! Hardcover $21, Kindle book $15, not available until January 9, 2018. The author appears to have a portfolio of responsible journalism under his belt.

    Michael Wolff has received numerous awards for his work, including two National Magazine Awards. He has been a regular columnist for Vanity Fair, New York, The Hollywood Reporter, British GQ, USA Today, and The Guardian. He is the author of six prior books, including the bestselling Burn Rate and The Man Who Owns the News. He lives in Manhattan and has four children.
    https://www.amazon.com/Fire-Fury-Ins.../dp/1250158060

    Published by Henry Holt and Company publishers (never heard of this company).

    Trump has spawned a cottage industry in publishing! If you wish, you can choose from a dozen other books about his presidency, and that's BEFORE he's been in office for a year.

    So, PHers......you gonna read it?

    I certainly hope not. We need Biden in the white house as much as we needed the Red Queen, which is to say, anything would be better. What is this allergy 21st century Democrats have developed towards progressives?

    You people wouldn't vote for Teddy Roosevelt, if he was reincarnated -- but you WOULD vote for Reagan.

    It's confusing.

    Every station has different excerpts.

    I am more interested in Doug Jones. He is articulate,prosecuted the KKK, Biden escorted him into Congress to be sworn in.

    O, this is some hot shit inside dope:

    On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans.

    Conway, the campaign’s manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election — of this she was sure — but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That was a substantial victory. As for the looming defeat itself, she shrugged it off: It was Reince Priebus’s fault, not hers.

    She had spent a good part of the day calling friends and allies in the political world and blaming Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee. Now she briefed some of the television producers and anchors whom she had been carefully courting since joining the Trump campaign — and with whom she had been actively interviewing in the last few weeks, hoping to land a permanent on-air job after the election.

    Even though the numbers in a few key states had appeared to be changing to Trump’s advantage, neither Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — the effective head of the campaign — *wavered in their certainty: Their unexpected adventure would soon be over. Not only would Trump not be president, almost everyone in the campaign agreed, he should probably not be. Conveniently, the former conviction meant nobody had to deal with the latter issue.

    As the campaign came to an end, Trump himself was sanguine. His ultimate goal, after all, had never been to win. “I can be the most famous man in the world,” he had told his aide Sam Nunberg at the outset of the race. His longtime friend Roger Ailes, the former head of Fox News, liked to say that if you want a career in television, first run for president. Now Trump, encouraged by Ailes, was floating rumors about a Trump network. It was a great future. He would come out of this campaign, Trump assured Ailes, with a far more powerful brand and untold opportunities.

    “This is bigger than I ever dreamed of,” he told Ailes a week before the election. “I don’t think about losing, because it isn’t losing. We’ve totally won.”

    *Snip*

    I completely believe this -- Trump was angry that he won.

    Sworn in as what? Is he an elected official? Never heard of this guy, but I have little interest in anyone who is playing lackey to the 0.01% and their pet corporate Democrats.

    I would vote for Teddy Roosevelt in a heartbeat,if he were alive. One of the great Republicans.

    I never said anything about Biden being in the WH, but will say this, Joe Biden is a man of character, never a scandal about him. He has spent his life in service to this country,despite family tragedies that would kill a normal man.

    I sure as hell wish Biden was in that WH now!

    Where do you get off posting such crap to me?

    Good Lord,Madeline! Doug Jones is the New Democratic Senator from Alabama. He beat the child molester, Roy Moore. You know,the one Trump backed?
