Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury” about the Trump White House has been widely discredited by a number of sources.
On Wednesday’s ‘Morning Joe,’ co-host Mika Brzezinski threw Wolff off the set after he denied targeting UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, claiming she’s having an affair with President Trump.
From Daily Wire:
On Thursday, Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff appeared on MSNBC yet again, this time to discuss his implication that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was having an affair with President Trump. When asked about that implication, Wolff suggested that Haley’s rejection of the rumor somehow underscored its truth. He then stated that he hadn’t named Haley. “I didn’t go after her,” Wolff said, “but what I found puzzling was that she would deny something she wasn’t accused of.”
And Mika Brzezinski threw him off the set:

Brzezinski stated, “Do you regret inferring anything about Nikki Haley?”
Wolff answered, “Many of the people around the president believe she is still involved with President Trump…That was about her meaning to become the Secretary of State.” Brzezinski said, “You’re slurring a woman. It’s disgraceful.” Wolff answered, “She’s been accused of nothing…Certainly I didn’t accuse her of anything.”
More on Wolff claiming Haley is having an affair with Trump, per Politico:
The online speculation was instigated by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, who dropped hints on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” last week when he said he was “absolutely sure” Trump is having an affair — just not sure enough to write about it in his book. Wolff went on to say that discriminating readers would be able to determine the president’s paramour by giving his book a close reading: “Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’re gonna say, ‘Bingo.’”
Readers quickly homed in on a single sentence in the runaway bestseller, which has been criticized for everything from sloppy copy editing to gross factual inaccuracies. Wolff writes, “The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future.”
In this instance, good for Mika.
Wolff’s claims are bush league.
He should apologize for authoring such a libelous book!
