Indy bookstores sell out of 'Fire and Fury' about Trump administration

Bannon has been tight-lipped amid the blowback, and instead of lashing out against Trump, he appeared to try and curry favor with him during a radio interview.

A recent story on the outlet concerns Bannon's response to Trump's Thursday attacks, where he praised the president as a "great man" whom he supports "day in and day out".

"These reporters act like idiots, so they get to be treated like idiots", said one. Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she'd be the one to run for president. "That's the background and perception that will finally end this presidency". "People say 'why did they talk to him on the record?' They were told to", said Wallace, calling it a "tremendous miscalculation".

The acrimony surrounding former White House adviser Steve Bannon's very public break with President Donald Trump is escalating, suggesting a permanent split between the president and the pugilistic strategist who helped put him in the Oval Office. He said he has recordings and notes of his interviews.

Not up for debate: This has become the biggest must-read Washington book in a generation.

"So that in itself is very harmful to this administration", he continued. The book is probably best understood primarily as a vividly written, impressionistic account, one that offers a true-enough sense of the inner workings of a uniquely disorganized White House along with some gossipy embellishments and hyperbole. The book claims that many people close to the president believed his "mental powers were slipping", noting in particular his tendency to repeat expressions in swift succession.

"It was pretty crazy, the line was all the way down the street", she said.

"Thank you, Mister President", Sanders said to the screen when the video address concluded.

If you watch the Trump White House through the lens of cable TV, it seems like the vice president is a near-constant companion to Trump.

Mr Wolff was also revealed to have taped many of his conversations, including those with Steve Bannon, which form much of the basis of the book. He's constantly standing off of Trump's shoulder as the President signs this order or that piece of legislation, clapping and smiling on cue.

"[Ivanka] took me under her wing and raised me, took me shopping, tried to make me cool", he said. "Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist", Trump tweeted. "I'm here for the party".

The book's publishers, Henry Holt and Company, revealed that they had received a cease and desist letter from an attorney for President Trump, but decided to proceed with the publication of what they described as "an extraordinary contribution to our (United States') national discourse".

One sticking point onlookers had on Trump's message was the fact he was actually at the White House - with the Oval Office just a short walk from the briefing room.
