Donald Trump on book's mental health claims: 'I'm a stable genius'

Donald Trump on book's mental health claims: 'I'm a stable genius'”

According to an excerpt of journalist Michael Wolff's upcoming book Fire And Fury: Inside The Trump White House obtained early by the NY Post, one of Trump's friends has revealed more "locker room talk" from the President.

The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by New York author Michael Wolff, paints a picture of a chaotic administration and a president whom insiders describe as being like a child needing instant gratification.

Trump's lawyer is demanding a halt to publication of the book, which goes on sale Friday, and the president insisted in a tweet he had granted Wolff "Zero access" to the White House and denied he ever spoke to him for the book. And in Sacramento, local bookstores say they were inundated with calls from people asking for the book.

On Twitter Thursday, Trump said the book is "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist". And Trump's lawyers sent cease-and-desist letters to Wolff and his publisher demanding they not release the book.

He later took another shot at Wolff, calling him a "total loser" who "made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book".

Wolff said he stands by everything in his book and has notes and recordings to back it up.

Trump was furious. On Wednesday afternoon, the White House released a statement emphatically disowning Bannon.

"The Mercer Family recently dumped the leaker known as Sloppy Steve Bannon", he said, pointing to news that the billionaire GOP megadonor family cut ties with Bannon. Among the people he quoted was former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who called meetings involving the president's son Donald Jr, son-in law Jared Kushner and aide Paul Manafort with Russian elements "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

"Let me put a marker in the sand here. And his staff is no better".

She also tweeted, "several things that are true and several that are not". You hear more intelligent, mature dialogue from children in the playground.

Sanders also noted that reporters who are "routinely incredibly critical" of the president have also questioned Wolff's journalistic credibility. "Great guy. I think he should write a book about me".

Michael Wolff says on NBC's "Today Show" Friday: "Where do I send a box of chocolates?" Yesterday, the Guardian and numerous other media houses were talking about it and that may have been a reason why the book moved so rapidly.
