Wannabe Tinpot Dictator Trump Demands Censorship Of Tell-All Book About His F*cked Up White House
Though we are only four days into 2018, that has not stopped the political sphere of the United States from pumping out new controversies and demands from the Trump Administration. On Wednesday we reported that journalist Michael Wolff would be publishing a new book titled “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which seeks to provide an insider look into the inner-workings of not only the White House, but the 2016 Trump campaign as a whole.
What has made this work gain particular notoriety is its quotes from Steve Bannon, who not only worked as the Chief Executive of the Trump Campaign, but was also the White House Chief Strategist during the first half of the first year of the Trump presidency. Because he played such an intimate role in the development of Trump’s successful bid for the White House, it makes sense that Trump would be worried about the impact of his words on the public.

Rather than just limit it to another Twitter storm, though, Trump has gone the extra mile of actually trying to censor the novel. In an 11-page cease and desist letter released by Trump’s lawyer Charles J. Harder, claims of “libel” have been thrown at Wolff’s upcoming book, with the ultimate demand that it not be released to readers:
“Mr. Trump hereby demands that you immediately cease and desist from any further publication, release or dissemination of the book, the article, or any excerpts or summaries of either of them, to any person or entity, and that you issue a full and complete retraction and apology to my client as to all statements made about him in the book and article that lack competent evidentiary support.”
Bannon’s statements, for those who do not know, essentially provided a testimony that confirmed senior members of the Trump Team met with foreign officials at his tower, which Bannon ironically condemned as “treasonous,” “unpatriotic,” and “bad sh*t.”
The President and his campaign team have already been facing a lot of scrutiny over these foreign meetings courtesy of the Mueller Investigation. That Bannon is affirming them will only add to this preexisting pressure, thereby explaining Trump’s dictator-esque behavior towards “Fire and Fury.”
The book itself contains more disastrous claims about Trump, including accusations of incompetence from his advisers, as well as negative comments on his relationship with Melania. Considering Wolff has reportedly taped the conversations of his talks with all these quoted officials, it makes sense that Trump is scared.
