Book Review: Wolff Delivers a Window on the Trump White House

Book Review: Wolff Delivers a Window on the Trump White House

Miller was widely panned for an early round of interviews just weeks into the administration, but Scarborough told MSNBC analyst Elise Jordan this weekend's appearance - which ended with him being reportedly escorted from CNN by security - signaled a new low.

"CNN called around to news organizations and said you were escorted off the set by security", Carlson said.

The book, authored by Michael Miller, paints Trump as a leader who doesn't grasp the job as president and quotes White House aides who question his sanity and competence.

Twelve minutes in, Tapper could take no more, calling Miller "obsequious" for his seeming attempt to score points with President Trump. "Thank you, Stephen", he said, abruptly cutting off the senior White House adviser. "Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

Tucker then expressed great dismay that "there was a video apparently taken, without your knowledge" - meaning the few seconds where Miller kept shouting after Tapper went to commercial - and a transcript of that exchange was leaked.

Trump was attempting to rebut the claim made in a damaging new book that some of his aides doubt his fitness for office.

Trump tweeted about the interview later Sunday morning.

The CNN host then cut the interview short and jumped into a teaser for the next segment.

Tapper also wanted Miller to respond to questions critics have asked over the president's mental stability. According to Vox, He further added that the president was "a self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and changed the course of our politics".

On NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Wolff defended his book, explaining how he got access to key administration players inside the Trump White House.

"It reads like an angry, vindictive person spouting off to a highly discreditable author", Miller said.

MILLER: You get 24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage on this network.

He also portrayed Mr Trump as someone who was out of his depth, who had the instincts of a child and that the team he had assembled at the White House possessed no "brain trust". Beyond his reputation for not being careful with the facts, Wolff admitted he said whatever he needed to say to gain the trust of White House officials, which makes you wonder, if he so thoroughly deceived them, how much is he deceiving us?

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley), who is aligned with Bannon on pro-Israel policies and had Bannon's help last month at a campaign fundraiser, called his ally's statement a "positive step forward" in terms of clarity.
