Yellow journalist Michael Wolff admitted Monday that he never bothered to interview Trump cabinet members for his bombshell new book about the White House. It’s more than a little suspicious that Wolff’s book is chock full of salacious, jaw-dropping allegations but not one of them came from a current senior official.
“Did you speak to any members of the president’s Cabinet for this book?” CBS This Morning host Norah O’Donnell asked Wolff.
“I did not,” he replied
“You did not?” O’Donnell questioned, clearly surprised.
“I did not.”
Wolff’s book is openly biased against President Trump. He presents a leader who is laughably underqualified for his position yet too egotistical to notice.
That’s not the Trump that Americans put into office. Americans voted for a strong, charismatic businessman who showed a commitment to upholding traditional values. Wolff, however, would have been lost if he’d had to write something positive about the president.
“The president denies he ever spoke to you for the book, at all,” O’Donnell continued.
“I probably think he had no idea he was speaking to me for this book… When I would meet the president in the White House we would chat as though we were friends,” Wolff replied.
“But that’s not an interview, to greet someone and say, ‘Hello’…That’s not a journalistic exercise,” O’Donnell countered.
Wolff isn’t a journalist though, he’s a glorified gossip queen that trades in political rumors rather than Hollywood ones. A real story about the inner workings of the White House would have been fascinating. Instead, Wolff cobbled together a bunch of lies and presented it to the world.
