"So my window into Donald Trump is pretty significant, but even more to the point..."

Michael Wolff said on NBC's "Today Show": "Where do I send a box of chocolates?" On Thursday, one day after the White House issued a statement on the president's behalf accusing Bannon of having "lost his mind", Rebekah Mercer publicly broke from her controversial beneficiary. First there were the Steve Bannon excerpts, revealing what the former White House chief strategist really thought about Donald Trump Jr.'s "treasonous" meeting with a Russian lawyer. "I wasn't gonna buy the book".

Wolff's book ranked number one over night on Amazon website.

"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", has caused something of a sensation in recent days following extracts which purport to shed fresh and unsettling light on Mr Trump's behaviour and life behind the walls of the White House.

The president bemoaned what he said were "very weak" libel laws in the US. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. "I don't know, but it certainly was not off the record".

While Wolff stands by his reporting, Trump and his associates are not the only ones questioning the author's veracity. In "Fire and Fury", Michael Wolff claims that many advisers and members of the administration privately doubt that Trump can do the job as president because of questionable mental health.

Gotsis was upset he was not able to get the second copy he wanted and that he got conflicting answers on the process of pre-ordering, but he will keep an eye out for a restock.

"In a normal environment, we'd be talking about how all the waters in the United States are open to oil drilling".

After Mercer condemned Bannon, the president tweeted his approval.

The White House has been against the claims that have been made in Wolff's books.

"They all say he is like a child". According to the president, he never even gave him a quote.

"They say he's a moron, an idiot".

"Let's remember, this man who does not read, does not listen".

Rush Limbaugh, the far-right conservative commentator and radio host, derided former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, calling him a leaker and a creation of wealthy GOP donors. Kimmel asked of Trump. Two people close to Boehner confirmed that and said they had spoken before and after the election. "However, I make my own decisions with respect to whom I support politically". I saw him interact with people.

It's also focused attention on Wolff, who has been described as a provocateur who loves the spotlight - except when it moves on.

"I've never questioned his mental fitness", he told in an interview to an American news channel.
