Reviews of Fire and Fury

  1. This book doesn’t wander far from what my expectations of this administration is up to. It’s utterly gross, and yet, like the proverbial train wreck, you CANNOT look away. I read the entire thing this morning, and I’m going to have to go back and read it again. To be sure that I actually read all the )#&%# I thought I did, and did such #(%&*# actually make it into a work about how the administration is going about its daily business.

    This is a constitutional crisis. I have read, already, all the attacks on the author. But everything he says shores up my POV about the administration – they were not prepared, they are a bumbling roadside attraction doing anything they can to keep the audience’s attention. When whatever the current shill is turns out not to be what they want you to see, they bumble and fall over one another, inflaming hatred of some “other” – from the top down – to shift your attention.

    I have been watching, enjoying, and debating politics since I was ten. I love to see what current administrations are doing, and even if I voted for them, I’ll critique. No one’s perfect. But this – good grief. I have been ashamed, from time to time, at some of the actions of past presidents. But I am constantly, 150%, 24/7 ashamed of this administration. There is nothing they do that doesn’t hurt, lash out, or inflict damage on some part of the American people. Outside of that group the pres wants to be part of, the billionaires, everyone else is merely fodder.

    And lord help you if you are anyone other than white and male. Because you’re nothing.

    All this book has done is reinforce what I thought I was seeing. While that makes me sad, angry, and worried – it also reinforces that we must be active, and not complacent – we must, as a nation, go vote for people who will support this nation, and the ideals it has survived on. We have to bring back people who are not the sellout pieces of trash that is our current legislative bodies.

    Most of all, this book is a warning. Our nation is under siege. If you don’t see it – it’s because you don’t want to, or feel that the siege will benefit you in some fashion. It won’t. If it does, it’s temporary, and you will pay the piper, and it will hurt. This book should show you that. The pres has loyalty and concern for one person – himself. Anyone else is disposable. That includes the nation he supposedly represents.

    I suggest you read it. And put down the partisanship, and read it with eyes of “Is this who I want to represent me?” Even if only half of this is true, we are in a world of hurt. WE deserve better. The pres and all his sycophantic horde deserve to be bounced out on their backsides. Which begins with the 2018 elections.

  2. I don’t know how much of the book is factual vs supposition and assumption but was saddened at how it illustrates the shambles we seem to find ourselves in. I think we have lost our way – we aren’t seeing the resurgence of America the great, but rather America the great joke. Regardless of whether the book is based on facts or is just one long recap of the worst of this presidency with some theatrical narrative thrown in for effect, it gives form and shape to the widening divide in our country – and hints at a brewing chaos and instability that leaves us vulnerable. No matter your political affiliation, as a country the call to unite should be loud and clear before we implode in a shower of media flamed division. No matter who you are, read it and then reach out to someone from the other side and vow to find a way to stand together on important issues before it’s too late. Don’t get so caught up in watching the crash that you neglect to put the brakes on and prevent it.

 

 

 

With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the inside story
of the most controversial presidency of our time

The first nine months of Donald Trump’s term were stormy, outrageous―and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:
— What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
— What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
— Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
— Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
— Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
— What the secret to communicating with Trump is
— What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.
