Wow, "Fire and Fury" sold out already, online and at many stores

Apparently Trump's efforts to shut the book down only served to promote it.

Maybe trump likes this ? During his campaign, this kind of media attention was always good for him. His base was moved by the sort of "isn't it refreshing that he's not like other people in government ?"

Maybe that will still happen ? It's not like the number of people that think he's unfit for the job has much room to increase. The TPBs (and many others here that I won't name) of the world aren't going anywhere. Although Bannon's comments certainly should give a few of them pause.

Btw, if Bannon didn't say those things, then why did Trump say he's out of his mind ?

Someone aptly said, "Making America Read Again."

I wonder if this will be the biggest selling book of 2018 ?

Have you seen Bannon deny any of it? Bannon was the only smart and non greedy dude on his admin that wanted to raise taxes on the rich. All that Trump has left are greedy people that are looting the treasury.

Somehow I got the feeling this guy got hold of the ink dye pack that Bannon, Trump and Session put in the water to find the leak.
I almost guarantee at this point, this guy's book will play a pivotal role in Trump draining the swamp.

NPR and NYT are almost panicking backpedaling away from it. For the first time in over 20 years those organizations are talking about journalism integrity.
They are both saying Wolfe has crossed the line in every way. But they admit they love reveling in the gossip, but they don't think it's true. They want to believe most of the quotes are true, but not the recounts of the crazy shit Trump is reported to have said or done.

The print edition has sold out from publisher's point of view and they're hosed working on a second run.

Someone should just be running soft porn speculative novels about Trump's life as a sex slave to Putin and they'd probably move twin runs of a million a pop.

You got some parts of this right. IT's an entertaining read, even for many hardcore TrumpCucks, who never really denied Trump's lack of fitness or competence for the job. That's seen by many angry Trumpcucks as a wonderful bonus.

I get it that you're trying super hard to find a way to frame this.

And yes, there are some questions about Wolffs methods and journalistic integrity. But then for the last two years you've been a "the end justifies the means" kind of a guy. After all that's what Trumpism is all about no ?
Wolff was going for a big profit, while also probably feeling that he might save America from itself.

The main parts of your take away that make no sense, are that, one, this is going to be a force in helping Trump clean up the swamp. Hell, we've never had a swamp that holds a candle to the Trump created swamp.

That and the idea, that NYT and NPR don't believe that most of it is true. Quotes and the stuff Trump does.

Although I have wondered whether Trump could be getting a big payday from McDonalds. So much talk about him eating McDonalds, and look at who the typical TrumpCuck is. Sad really, that McDonalds business is going to be way up, but I don't know about American health.

Really? How? He's got Goldman looting the treasury, did not repeal ObamaCare so health premiums are still going up 10% year, and he fired his best supporter Bannon. I bet the Republican establishment throws him under the bus this year now that they got their tax cut for their donors.

Goldman looting the Treasury: Wasn't his first pick, and Your guys(The Resisters) rubber stamped him over all of Trump's first picks. Now understand that is exactly how everyone Trump has put in Cabinet positions got there. For some reason the Swamp Creatures found those picks more cuddly than Trump's personal choices. Unbeknownst to those Swamp critters and the Resisters. Trump was only elevation these people in most cases and setting them up to fail. By allowing them operate under the contract of the last 4 Presidents of Graft and greed. While he follows them back to who they report back to. Trump is always 10 steps ahead of these Dickheads.

Repeal Obamacare you say? There was only that whole resist thing that went on over the last 12 months, where not one single Liberal joined the discussion or debate to fix Obama horrible mess. And fix the fraud and gouging that is in the Law. They would have none of it. Trump ended the Mandate, that's enough for most. If you're stupid enough to go pay that extra 10% you should stop being a Retard you are doing that in spite. You know fucking damn well that if you chose NOT to give Iwog and other Greedy investors your hard earned Money because Obama told them it was their Birthright. Then you are the dumbass not me. Trump delivered as far as I'm concerned, sucks to be anyone that is willing to pay those illegally inflated, fraud riddled, unmitigated bill padding premiums and ++++++Bills that goes with it. Shame on you not ME!

As for Bannon getting fired. You remember Lord of the Rings, they had to split up and go their separate directions each with a specific task, where they all met at Mordor to return the ring? Bannon is building an Army of Hobbits and Trolls. While Sessions has been on an Elf hunt, Mueller has been building an Army of Orcs forged from accounting records of former associates.

Glad I could clear things up for you.

Your insurance is just an illusion you'll get the full bill regardless. NPR just did a story about a business owner from Canada moved to South Florida and wants to set up an export business. He looked into insurance for his 35 employees and found a Deferred Payment plan. Actually it almost didn't exist, so he helped set it up in Florida. Where the coop agrees to pay only 30% above Medicaid. The Hospitals and Doctors were all on board. Employees started using it, the Coop paid what they agreed. The Doctors and Hospitals went after the patients for the remainder in Full. They said in Florida that is perfectly legal, that is why we were taken the Cleaners in 2012 spite having a Cadillac Insurance plan. Cleaned us out of $35,000 plus the $17K we laid out in premiums, plus Copays, Premiums and max out of pocket from Blue Cross Blue Shield. We were told one thing about max out of pocket expenses but paid $35K above and beyond that. When I called the insurance company and suggested fraud was going on. They extorted me, and told me if I did that, no Doctor would ever see us again, and it wouldn't go anywhere anyway. There is no Consumer advocacy for the Insurance consumer in Florida. So yeah, you're all just a bunch of punks pissing your money into Obama's health care folly.

Get Cancer or want to try that new stemcell treatment to cure blindness. 450K per eye. You'll be on the hook for for at least $875K of that $900K doctor bill.
Don't kid yourself. Educate it.

Yes it did dig up old threads from 2012 for "Done!" The Liberal ass kissing fanboys here savagely abused me as I posted our experience in real time. As they saw my tale as a threat as I was saying it was a premonition to what's to come. And I was spot on, and it was those Ass Clowns lying their ass off. Tampa Bay Tribune even sent a Liberal spook to shut my discourse down, by trolling and flaming every little peep out me. I finally had to find the number for "Liar Liar Your Pants on Fire" and told their Chief Editor I was on to him.
The guy was gone the next day.

Well I just checked my "Done!" account. Apparently someone has created the user "Done" now and when I click on "Done!" threads I get "Done" threads.
At the time after Obama won again, I changed the user name to "Done!" and updated the email address for that account to bogus email.
But ask Patrick at first he suggest I could be racist and was just against Obama's signature health care plan because I was racist.
That's I'm most shocked at Patrick's turn around and pivot from being an Obama card carrying supporter to be excited about the prospect of a President Trump.

What did Obama have to do with any of it?

Remember this is a Republican world where they built these fucked up systems of Rent Extraction to dish out Maximum Pain to Great Americans. Sadly, some are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and are bent over the barrel begging for more reeming. You have to be sick in the head to think that voting in more Republicans will undue all the anti-Américan systems they’ve worked so hard to install

Like Obamacare, anyone with a brain knows that it was written by the Heritage Foundation which is why we knew that Repeal and Replace was always a lie to trick their Simps to vote for them

I’m curious how any of you people rationalize that THEY STILL HAVENT REPEALED OR REPLACED WHY? Why haven’t they even mustered up an attempt to address the American People’s greatest concern? Instead distracting you with Evil Hillary and bullshit Foriegn Posturing that has little to no effect on the same common, forgotten Americans they claim to have been voted in by and hence represent. The stock Market is continuing its decade long climb. That helps people like me who own equities and already have a job but how exactly do you think that helps out of work Factory laborers?

You have no answers unless WetFart.com tells you what to say and now there’s conflict there as well

Fuck THAT! It was Obama's touted economic recovery that sat on Ghost inventory until the American homeowner spirit was broken and the Press beat and cucked the Idiot youth in to believing that giving your money to Iwog for rent was a better way to go. Then Obama allowed 80% of the houses that defaulted during the RE collapse to end up in Rental Investors So now as a result, a one room efficiency now rents for $1200 a month.

The first year of Obama care was 2013. Why does your health care pre 2013 have anything to do with Obama care? Was your insurance bought through the exchange?

I'm calling bullshit that your insurance had anything to do with Obama care.

Completely agree. By bailing out banks and private equity first while everyone else was in credit jail, Obama made this a renter (aka serf) country especially in states like California and Florida. That's a valid criticism that most coastal liberals ignore.

It wouldn't make any difference. We got Gorsuch. We got a new tax code. We're going to get anywhere from five to seven more Republicans in the United States Senate. I have no doubt of that. McCaskill is toast. I thought Nelson (former astronaut) in Florida might survive but running against Scott? Ain't no way. The Trump crowd is said to be after Casey in Pennsylvania for having become too comfortable with his party's left wing. His father wasn't like that but money is raised at the extremes.

I thought Sherrod Brown would have a chance thanks to power of the incumbency but now it looks like Kasich might get into the race and Ohio has a history of moderate Republicans being elected to the Senate: Portman, Voinovich, DeWine, etc. Even Glenn had his moments. Headline Howie got in during a bad year and was kept around by the Democratic political machine (union crowd) that no longer exists. Ohio isn't that kind of place anymore and the representation reflects it.

The numbers for 2018 are compelling. Democrats have to defend something like twenty seats two years after being financially sodomized by a Hillary defeat. She and her people spent over a billion dollars of the party's cash! There's only so much one can expect from this upcoming cycle. It will be bad, question is how bad.

All sorts of things are happening in this administration that aren't being covered by the media because it doesn't suit their narrative. We have a friend who's management at Dept of Ed in San Francisco and she says Betsy is kicking ass and taking names.
