Fire and Fury is the timely name of the juicy book that probably or may not (not likely) shed light on the private affairs of one Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States. A man so obsessed with his image he built a business around branding his name onto buildings he doesn’t even own.
Yet despite his very public persona and character act that Trump portrays to the world, we don’t know much about who he actually is or what he actually does all day. There are tidbits of information that have leaked out to the press about how much Trump golfs and watches TV all day. This supporters say, paints Trump as little more than a figurehead and is of course, fake news. In their truth, President Trump is the same hard working business man he portrays on TV. They buy the scam. He’s hard at work for the American People even when all evidence points to the contrary.
After the Press release came out for Fire and Fury, the first successful tell-all book about the inner workings of the Trump Administration as seen by Steven Bannon. The once trusted confident and Trump puppet master, Trump and his dwindling team of trusted advisers have done nothing but try to squash the book. And as the media got it’s hands on some of the most juiciest details that seem to confirm what all objective people who have followed the President over the past few years have come to know: “That he doesn’t read, likes to watch TV, and fails to take in new information, is prone to forgetfulness, anger, and irrationality.” We see these in his tweets much too often for my liking.
What the book does, if most of it can be corroborated and it looks like we are getting there despite Trump’s family’s insistence that it’s fake news, is that it gives some new information that can definitely be used against Trump in whatever crimes Mueller seems fit to indict him with.
It all comes down to obstruction of justice and collusion. In the book Bannon says of the meeting in Trump tower with the Russians “Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” and also, “The chance that Don Jr. did not walk these jumos up to his father’s office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero.”
Now Trump says he barely knows who Bannon is despite numerous times where Trump praised him, and hired him as his campaign CEO. Fire and Fury is set to come out tomorrow and is already a best seller on Amazon’s list. It is a nightmare for the administration, which wanted to come into 2018 riding high on it’s tax reform success. Fire and Fury has stopped all that and will have lasting ramifications.
