The "Morning Joe" host said many of the anecdotes collected in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House line up with the claims he's been making about Trump and his chaotic administration.

"In pursuing a friend's wife, he would try to persuade the wife that her husband was perhaps not what she thought."

US President Donald Trump took to his Twitter page in order to praise himself in response to the controversial Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. "Absolutely everything in the book", he said.

Trump has lashed out at Bannon over a new book that quotes his former aide questioning the president's competence. "I am certainly and absolutely in every way comfortable with what I have reported". I have recordings. I have notes.

"Let me put a marker in the sand here".

On Friday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CNN that he had "no reason to question" Mr Trump's mental fitness. "Not only is he helping me sell books but he's helping me prove the point of the book".

"We'll be getting it, we just don't have it right now", said library assistant Cathy Polovina.

"Fire and Fury" chronicles the first nine months of the Trump White House, painting a dysfunctional atmosphere.

Presumably the idea was the wives would then sleep with Trump to get even with their men.

Author Michael Wolff writes that Trump campaign lawyer Mark Corallo resigned because he thought the Air Force One conversation constituted obstruction of justice.

Wolff said that, like any good reporter, he has evidence of his work and preparation for the book.

Some reporters did look at Wolff's past and found reason to doubt his latest account.

On Friday, Trump cheered the news that a billionaire conservative donor who bankrolled former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon's political career has cut ties with him after he was quoted in the book.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Mr Blakeman said: "The President has had a tremendous year". "Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately".

Wolff's critics aren't limited to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The bookstore is always open until 1 a.m. on weekdays, but the midnight crowd, which reportedly included a number of journalists, was apparently bigger than usual.

For this reason, he said the White House is "sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five" hurricane. Wolff quipped about the White House attention that has bolstered the book's publicity.
