On Thursday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel blasted President Trump for his response to the release of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
“If you don’t want people to read a book about you, why would you take legal action to try to stop people from reading the book about you?” Kimmel asked.
He continued, stating, “I wasn’t going to buy the book. I was just gonna read the excerpts in magazines and move on. But now that Trump’s lawyers are going all-out to try to stop this book from being published, I’m buying 20 copies. I can’t buy enough of these books.”
President Trump addressed the book in a series of recent tweets.
“I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!” Trump wrote on Thursday.
Friday morning, Trump addressed the book again, writing, “Well, now that collusion with Russia is proving to be a total hoax and the only collusion is with Hillary Clinton and the FBI/Russia, the Fake News Media (Mainstream) and this phony new book are hitting out at every new front imaginable. They should try winning an election. Sad!”
