Title: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff
Author's note (p. xi): The reason to write this book could not be more obvious. With the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, the United States entered the eye of the most extraordinary political storm since at least Watergate. As the day approached, I set out to tell this story in as contemporaneous a fashion as possible and try to see life in the Trump White House through the eyes of the people closest to it.Friday 56:

Everyone is talking about this controversial book. I had to read it to see what all Wolff discovered from his more than seventeen interviews with those working for Trump in the White House. Admittedly I can't read it very fast. It makes me so angry. For example: did you know that Trump didn't really want to win the election? He thought running for President would be good for his ratings so he could start a Trump media station.
