Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House Reviews
This book was hilarious and terrifying and confirmed pretty much everything most of us have suspected about the incompetence of the Trump administration. If even half of this book is true, well, this presidency is a disaster.
The strangest part of this book is Wolf’s unabashed affection for Steve Bannon. Like, dude, get a room.
Also this book is sloppy and needs to be edited.
I’m no Trump fan, but let me offer this bit of optimism: if we have to have a Republican in the White House, he might as well be so dysfunctional that nothing is accomplished. Barring the frighteningly real possibility of accidental nuclear war, I’d much rather an incompetent lunatic than a competent one.
Imagine how much evil Mike Pence could accomplish with majorities in the House and Senate. Now that’s true terror. And we’ve seen how craftily he can lie to our faces—even when literally everyo ...more
this is what happens when you let a Wolff into your House, silly!
I will have such revenges on you both
That all the world shall—I will do such things—
What they are yet I know not, but they shall be
The terrors of the earth. You think I’ll weep?
No, I’ll not weep.

Look, forget the myths the media's created about the White House. The truth is, these are not very bright guys, and things got out of hand.

In short: this is an internal history of the Trump Administration, as largely told by the former Chief Stra ...more
Kinetic, trashy, slapdash, and completely addictive. Wolff's prose is uneven but he is very good at keeping the eye moving across the page, and in this he is perhaps helped by the book's failing: this is very padded out with stuff we already know (the long profiles of Kushner, Bannon, and Conway have no revelations in them.) But the gossip is gold, though the depictions of the characters have an unfortunate tendency toward lazy meanness. I don't need a description of Bannon as "on the spectrum," ...more

This book was everywhere. Comedians were talking about it. Politicians were talking about it. Magazines and newspapers were talking about it. Trump was talking about it. Even the Grammys got in on it, with Hillary Clinton making a special cameo, during which she read excerpts from the book. It was supposed to be game-changing. Scandalous. Dishy. Controversial. It was making ~waves~. Hell, I even got unfriended by several people after postin ...more

This book doesn't challenge your assumptions. If it is to be believed, the day-to-day functioning of Trump’s White House appears to be simultaneously worse than we all imagined, and exactly as we all thought it probably was: Trump’s an idiot, the least self-aware person alive, interested only in his own celebrity and validation, and wholly unqualified to be the President of anything. Everyone around him is 1) Trying to save face. 2) Pushing their competing agendas. 3) Making fun ...more
