White House Bashes New Book On Trump: It's 'Trashy Tabloid Fiction'

Source: Talking Points Memo




By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published JANUARY 3, 2018 2:14 PM

The White House was quick to dismiss a new book about President Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency on Wednesday after New York Magazine published an excerpt.

“This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “Participating in a book that can only be described as trashy tabloid fiction exposes their sad desperate attempts at relevancy.”

The excerpt from Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” painted a picture of a chaotic campaign and White House run by staffers who were unprepared for their roles and who were constantly battling each other for Trump’s attention. The book also alleges that Melania Trump did not want Trump to win the White House and was upset when he won the race.

The first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, denied that account in a statement.

3. Then why did he go high order on Bannon

At least confirming those portions of the book? It does not make logical sense.

4. Snarf!

Anything this gaggle of losers dislikes is instantly “fake,” as they are the arbiters of supreme truth and possess the judgment of what is of value ...

6. "Trashy" and "tabloid"

describe Trump and his family to perfection.

And the only "fiction" is Trump's suitability for office.

11. Trashy tabloid?!?

He gets his news from Fox News, BrietBart, InfoWars and the National Enquirer...the very definition of “trashy tabloid”.

16. They're saying the book is all lies,

because of one excerpt where Trump forgets who John Boehner was. Who says Trump wasn't having a dementia episode at that moment?

18. Exactly...

The one "newspaper" to endorse him in 2016, and one that still keeps up a steady drumbeat of pro-Trump (or, more-precisely, anti-Trump-opponent) "fake news" at every grocery checkstand in the country.

And they have the chutzpah to call anything else "trashy tabloid fiction"...?????

21. They're the worst and the stupidest.

Again. The repugs have managed to top their last abysmal admin. Even worster and stupider than last time.

Abysmally projective. They have to KNOW there are true news sources and fake news sources, in order to get so worked up and mad that their 'real news values' have been offended against, when they're on their high horse against the Times or CNN. And they know their sources have to lie, 100% of the time, about everything.
