100% Of Trump’s Inner Circle Question His Fitness For Office: Watch Michael Wolff’s NBC Interview

It’s probably fair to say that this has been the worst week yet for the Trump administration when it comes to bad publicity.

There’s more than a little irony inherent in the President’s ongoing war with the media. Right up until he took the oath of office, Donald Trump embodied the old “all publicity is good publicity” adage. Bad publicity was just as “good” as good publicity when it came to providing the oxygen which allowed the dumpster fire that was the Trump campaign to continually rage.

Even the Access Hollywood tapes fed that fire. An admission of habitual sexual assault ended up bolstering Trump’s zero-fucks-given credentials and by the time it was all said and done, the recordings were pitched as just another “smear” tactic employed by the purportedly “dishonest” media establishment as part of their ultimately fruitless effort to undermine the self-proclaimed “outsider” promising to upend that same establishment.


But once he became President, Trump realized that all publicity is not in fact good publicity. When you’re entrusted with things like nuclear launch codes and safeguarding the Constitution, stories that suggest you have the mental capacity of a small child don’t go over well with an electorate that was already anxious about the prospect of a WWE hall of fame inductee holding the highest office in the land. In the same vein, it’s difficult for even the most deluded narcissists to somehow claim that tales of skullduggery and treasonous meetings with shady Russian go-betweens are somehow fine because it keeps your name in the news cycle.

And so, Donald Trump is engaged in a constant effort to manage a narrative that has gotten progressively more damning with each passing month.

This week represented the culmination of that deteriorating narrative.  Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”, validates everyone’s worst fears about the administration and, perhaps more importantly, about what those close to Trump really think about him. To put it in terms Trump would understand, Michael Wolff grabbed him by the man pussy – hard.

For Wolff, all publicity is indeed good publicity. The more Trump tweets about the book, the more people are going to buy it. It’s just that simple. And indeed, Trump’s cease and desist order actually “succeeded” in getting the release date pushed up.

Well on Friday morning, Wolff sat down with NBC for an exclusive interview and dealt another series of mortal blows to the President’s image.

“I will tell you the one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common: They all say he is like a child,” Wolff told NBC, adding that “what they mean by that is, he has a need for immediate gratification. It is all about him.”

Wolff went on to say that “100% of the people around” Trump, “senior advisers, family members, every single one of them, questions his intelligence and fitness for office.”

Here is the video which we imagine prompted Trump – who apparently doesn’t drink – to drown his sorrows in a big bucket of KFC and two pints of gravy…
