Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House flew off bookshelves early Friday morning, becoming the highest selling fiction book of the year so far.
Dan Brown’s new novel Origin, John Grisham’s The Rooster Bar and Lee Child’s new Jack Reacher thriller The Midnight Line, Michael Wolff’s fictionalized fantasy about life in the White House is proving popular with low information, gullible liberals looking for a cheap thrill.

The book soared to #1 on Amazon.com’s bestseller list just hours after The Guardian scooped the world by publishing details from a print version of the book that had been delivered to a book store in New England.
The controversial book contains “snappy dialogue” as well as “richly imaginative fantasy worlds,” according to literary critics.
The Steve Bannon character, presented as a former White House adviser, gets much of the best dialogue.
In one scene, “Bannon” criticizes a meeting that Donald Trump, Jr. and campaign officials had with a Russian lawyer in July 2016 in the hope of gaining opposition research on Hillary Clinton.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” the fictionalized version of Bannon says in the book.
Charles Harder, a private attorney for President Trump, sent Wolff and his publisher, Henry Holt and Co., a cease-and-desist letter on Thursday, demanding a “full retraction and apology”, according to USA Today.
“Your publication of the false/baseless statements about Mr. Trump gives rise to, among other claims, defamation by libel, defamation by libel per se, false light invasion of privacy, tortious interference with contractual relations, and inducement of breach of contract,” the letter reportedly read.
Popular fantasy novelist Wolff even thanked President Trump on Twitter for trying to block his fantasy thriller:
Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.

Late Thursday night, lines formed at Washington, D.C. book stores as curious patrons — and journalists looking for reportable tidbits — rushed to see what the president did not want them to read.
Will Sommer, campaign editor for The Hill, was one of the few who obtained a copy of the book. He opined on Twitter that the book’s “juiciest details” had already been reported in the media, “which makes the Trump cease and desist order to stop the book even stranger.”
The fact is President Trump recognizes the danger to our democracy posed by fake news masquerading as fact, presented in bestselling books that get gobbled up by information poor, gullible liberals raised on a malnourishing diet of CNN and pipe dreams.
