These tweets of Trump defending his mental stability come after the President and some his top officials spent the last few days defending the claims made by author Michael Wolff in his new book, "Fire and Fury", which speaks about the President's mental fitness to serve as a President. In addition to that, he lashed out at Bannon, calling him "Sloppy Steve" for giving an interview to Wolff. And it wasn't just Bannon. Thank you. Thank you very much.
"I do know that it was Bannon who, according to Sarah Huckabee Sanders as well, was pushing the book". He also said he never spoke with Wolff for the book, and turned down his request for an interview many times.
As someone who loves to read, and wishes more Americans did, too, this is a trend I'd like to see more of in 2018.
Donald Trump has dismissed allegations he is unfit to be president, proclaiming himself to be a "very stable genius" in a series of tweets.
Perhaps Bannon being "dumped like a dog" was in reaction to recent reports that he lost financial support from GOP mega donor Rebekah Mercer and that he was potentially being ousted from Breitbart.
He also hit back at claims that the book was untruthful.
Some people have expressed concerns the book is propaganda meant to slander the president, Phillips said, but he expects it to be one of their best sellers. "So that is one moment that does not appear to be entirely correct".
Wolff's latest book, released ahead of schedule on Friday, is titledFire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. It demands a halt to publication of the book or of excerpts. "We usually don't buy new books but this book has been very popular".
That's because of the "Goldwater Rule", which bars members of the American Psychiatric Association from diagnosing public figures they have not personally evaluated.
The book also alleges that Chief of Staff John Kelly admitted that he accepted the job of working for Trump, despite the president's uncontrollable nature, so that he could prevent the man from causing a catastrophe.
Author and columnist Michael Wolff said he sympathizes with people he interviewed for an explosive new book on the Trump administration who are now mortified by the book's content.
