Fire and Fury - latest news, breaking stories and comment - The IndependentAlmost every American president has been faced with the scourge of the political tell-all, as former political operatives, hangers-on and senior administration figures, from secretary of state to CIA director, rush to spill the beans on their time near the centre of power. Unfortunately for Donald Trump, that moment has come sooner rather than later. Less than a year into his presidency, Michael Wolff has published a new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House , one of the first attempts to lift the lid on the Trump presidency. Queues of impatient readers lined up for hours outside bookstores on publication night, publishers Henry Holt are racing to print new copies, and an internet meme has been born showing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un chuckling hysterically as he leafs through the book. All the time the author is gleefully looking on as the sales roll in. Wolff himself is a problematic figure. Controversy accompanied his book on Rupert Murdoch, when he was accused of stretching the truth.
