Last week, we reported on author Michael Wolff’s sensational new book “Fire and Fury,” which makes a series of outrageous claims about Donald Trump. Though Wolff was on top of the world just a few days ago, it appears that he is now quickly coming crashing back down to Earth.
Infowars reported that NBC’s Chuck Todd confronted Wolff on “Meet The Press” over the weekend about the many errors in his book.
“There are a lot of little errors—there’s a lot of them,” Todd told Wolff. “One page had three in one. Some of them may be copy edits, small factual errors, but it adds up. Why shouldn’t a reader be concerned about some of these mistakes?”
“I think a reader should read the book,” Wolff said, clearly trying to boost sales. “The book speaks for itself.”
When asked if he “regrets” the mistakes, Wolff smugly responded, “I think I mixed up a Mike Berman and a Mark Berman — for that, I apologize.”
However, this apology in itself was an error, because Wolff actually does say “Mark Berman” in his book. Washington Post national reporter Mark Berman instead called out Wolff for placing him at a breakfast that he didn’t attend, not for getting his name wrong.
“I have never had breakfast at the Four Seasons, never actually been there,” Berman tweeted on Friday.

Clearly, Wolff made so many errors in his book that even he can’t keep them straight. The claims Wolff made in the book were shocking to say the least.
“There was now a fair amount of back-of-the-classroom giggling about who had called Trump what,” Wolff wrote in his book, which is due out January 9.
“For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, he was an ‘idiot.’ For Gary Cohn, he was ‘dumb as s–t.’ For H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’ The list went on,” an excerpt read, according to Daily Mail.
Conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch is also quoted in the book as making fun of Trump’s intellect.
“On December 14, a high-level delegation from Silicon Valley came to Trump Tower to meet him. Later that afternoon, according to a source privy to details of the conversation, Trump called Rupert Murdoch, who asked him how the meeting had gone,” Wolff wrote. When the men could not agree on extending visas to the companies Trump had met with, Murdoch “shrugged as he got off the phone, and said: ‘What a f***ing idiot.'”
