Pulp journalist Michael Wolff probably thought his interview on “The View” would be a breeze. Answer a few softball questions about his new book, joke around with the hosts, tell a few salacious stories.
However, that’s not what happened. Meghan McCain went after Wolff like an attack dog, nipping at the heels of his lies and leaving him spluttering for excuses.
“You know, Michael, your credibility is being questioned. Trump said the book is full of lies…” McCain began before Wolff interrupted.
“Let’s remember who my credibility is being questioned by,” he cut in.
“Let me finish,” McCain snapped back. “The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, New York Times’ John Martin, David Brooks, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, Tony Blair, Tom Barrack, Kate Walsh, Anna Wintour, all denying quotes.”
Instead of appearing abashed, Wolff looked defiant. His book about President Trump is flying off the shelves like it’s a new Harry Potter book. Who cares if it’s full of lies? Wolff knows that supporters just want to make fun of Trump, they wouldn’t be interested in a book that accurately detailed the inner workings of the White House.
The Daily Caller noted that “Wolff ultimately responded (to McCain) for one mistake he made–mixing up Mike and Mark Berman–but dodged the rest and even suggested that The New York Times was just jealous that he had ‘scooped’ them.
McCain made an attempt to bring him down to earth but Wolff’s ego won’t deflate until liberals stop pumping him up. They’re treating him like he’s a prophet.
