An excerpt from Michael Wolff’s new “Fire and Fury” look at the Trump campaign and 2016 election is causing shock-waves for its explosive, absurd claim that Trump didn’t really want to win.
The President-elect was crestfallen when he learned he had won, writes Wolff.
Melania, supposedly, was crying in disbelief and regret.
There is surely no truth to what the White House is calling “tabloid trash” in the book. But the allegation of a Presidential campaign being designed to fail for profit (ala “The Producers”) isn’t as concerning as who had a hand in it.

A portion of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” was published by New York Magazine Wednesday. In it, Wolff wrote that Trump expected to lose and never even wanted to be president.
“Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy,” Wolff wrote.
“There was, in the space of little more than an hour, in Steve Bannon’s not unamused observation, a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a horrified Trump. But still to come was the final transformation: Suddenly, Donald Trump became a man who believed that he deserved to be, and was wholly capable of being, the president of the United States.”
Bannon reportedly bashed Trump and people around him on several occasions. Trump and the White House responded Wednesday by trying to talk down Bannon’s role on the campaign and in the White House, where he worked until last August.
Bannon, a major honcho at Breitbart, participated in this smear of the POTUS?
It seems that even the media’s narrative of left vs right media is fake. Instead, the media is becoming splintered into many factions, each with its own agenda.
Can Trump still bring America together?
