‘Fire and Fury’ paints strange picture of Trump family ties

Michael Wolff’s new book describes the president’s “perplexing” marriage and absentee parenting. The account of life inside the White House depicts an isolated president.

The author of “Fire and Fury,” an incendiary new book about the Trump White House, has made it clear that his book is by no means a historical record.

Rather, writes journalist Michael Wolff, the book is a he-said-she-said composite picture of Trump’s political and personal lives.

“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book,” Wolff says in the opening pages of his sought-after tome, which sold out in some areas shortly after its release on Friday.

The accounts collected by Wolff paint President Donald Trump as a lonely figure, someone with few true supporters and even fewer friends, including inside his own family. Staffers, including former advisor-turned-foe Steven Bannon, describe how no one — not even Trump himself — thought he would win the presidency, and how even after this victory, everyone around Trump treated him like an incompetent child.
