List Rules
Vote up the most shocking excerpts from Fire and Fury.

Controversial author and journalist Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House made a big splash – a yuuuge splash, you might say – before it even hit the stands in January 2018. Excerpts from Fire and Fury rocked the White House and the rest of the world, revealing an administration beset by turmoil, hurt feelings, and of course Donald Trump's outrageous behavior.

Among the many crazy stories in Fire and Fury are anecdotes about the staff's inability to keep the president on track at any given time, something evident to anyone paying attention to each week of the Trump administrationFire and Fury's revelations delve deep into the strange workings of the Trump White House, getting to the root of the problems (and Trump's hairline). Apparently, when Trump wasn't harassing Mika Brzezinski, he was offering to marry her at Mar-a-Lago. Meanwhile, political "strategist" Steve Bannon reportedly pushed through legislation simply to make liberals mad. And naturally, one of the craziest excerpts from Fire and Fury includes the president bragging about shacking up with married women.

These are some of the most outrageous claims made in Fire and Fury. If Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury excerpts sound a lot like a reality show, keep in mind the person who's "in charge" of all these proceedings.

    Trump's Advisors Believe Him 100% Incapable Of Being President

    101 votes

    "Donald Trump's small staff of factotums, advisors and family began, on Jan. 20, 2017, an experience that none of them, by any right or logic, thought they would – or, in many cases, should – have, being part of a Trump presidency. Hoping for the best, with their personal futures as well as the country's future depending on it, my indelible impression of talking to them and observing them through much of the first year of his presidency, is that they all – 100 percent – came to believe he was incapable of functioning in his job."

    "Murdoch suggested that taking a liberal approach to H-1B visas, which open America’s doors to select immigrants, might be hard to square with his promises to build a wall and close the borders. But Trump seemed unconcerned, assuring Murdoch, 'We’ll figure it out.'

    'What a f*cking idiot,' said Murdoch, shrugging, as he got off the phone."
