This past Sunday, when I checked our waiting list for author Michael Wolff's new Trump tell-all book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", at the Fairfield University Bookstore, I saw that we already had 30 names.

Quite as dumbfounded by his old friend Donald Trump's victory as most everyone else, Ailes provided the gathering with something of a mini-seminar on the randomness and absurdities of politics.

Colbert, whose show will air live after the president's State of the Union speech on January 30, noted how Trump was still fuming over the allegations in Wolff's book.

Mr Wolff said his book, which he says is based on more than 200 interviews with administration insiders, went on sale Friday (US time) in apparent gambit by the publisher to foil efforts by lawyers for Mr Trump to halt its release.

Wolff said that he reported the off-the-record comments because his source, Ailes, had died.

Cuban-American artist Edel Rodriguez has redesigned the front cover of the tell-all book documenting Donald Trump's first nine months as U.S. president, with an illustration of his face as flames.

"This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote in a statement.

"Everybody among the senior staff has at one time or another referred to him as a child, sometimes as an 11-year-old".

However, President Trump appears to have won the war of words, after North and South Korea held rare formal talks Wednesday. As one of the most prominent journalists in the country at the moment, he isn't helping his profession's collective reputation, even if his work did yield some valuable insight into the White House. My job is to sort those and to produce a book, a portrait which either comports with your idea of reality. Bannon has since said in a statement that he continues to support the president. He has not said exactly what he wants in return for keeping the program. "Why would I have written this book?" he said. "This is about what I saw what I heard.to the best of my ability to get what I believe to be the true story". He says he hasn't read Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, yet.

In the book, Bannon said it was "treasonous" of Trump's son Donald Trump Jr.to accept a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 who he thought would provide damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign.
