Org Book Club: Michael Wolff - Fire and Fury Inside the Trump White House: official thread

So, for those interested, let's talk about Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury book.

Tonight I am starting the chapter 7, Russia.

Let's keep this thread about the book, not about bashing Trump or any other craziness in the daily news. Let's talk about the chapters, ideas, quote, etc., in the book only. God knows there's enough room in P&R to talk about the daily shenanigans in the west wing one by one.

So far, the things I've taken away from it are:


Frumpy is really disconnected from the idea of being POTUS, in fact, he hates it.

Melania, whom I have new sympathy for in some regards, even more, hates her role as first lady; she's fighting it every step of the way, and only minimally doing what is expected of her.

Jarvanka are in there with no real job other than to advise Frumpy McBathrobe; they have no illusions about their father's fitness to be POTUS, but can do little about it.

And unlike Patricia Reagan (aka Patti Davis) who came out against many of her father's (Ronald Reagan) policies during his reign as supreme ruler of the United States, Jarvanka are biding their time and mild toleration. Jared is a horrible business man, and relies on Rupert Murdock for advice & council, while Ivanka has worked to become an independent woman yet oddly in search of her power-couple partner (which she eventually found in Kushner) and run her own businesses.

Steve Bannon truly thought he was going to be the puppet master, while not even understanding how to write an Executive Order; a job he gave dead-behind-the-eyes drone Stephen Miller to look up on Google the day of the inauguration.

Thoughts from your own reading experience so far?

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.
