Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, is quoted heavily throughout the book. She said Wolff "repeatedly begged to see the president" but was denied.

The US president has dismissed the book, calling Wolff a "loser". But the President wanted them to: he filed a cease-and-desist order against the publisher. One popular bookstore, KramerBooks, began selling "Fire and Fury" at midnight Friday.

Earlier this week, the White House also said that Trump never sat down with Wolff.

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" describes a chaotic White House, a president who was not prepared to win in 2016, and Trump aides who question his intelligence and ability to lead. You hear more intelligent, mature dialogue from children in the playground.

It's a desperate, pathetic new narrative, says American Thinker columnist Monica Showalter, "because up until now, the left has been adamant that Trump colluded with the Russians to do it". The book reached No. 1 on the Amazon best-seller list Wednesday.

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency", Trump declared. Reagan's son, Ron Reagan, later stated he had seen signs of mental decline while his father was in office. "The one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common - they all say he is like a child", Wolff said. But if there is a bright side to the whole thing, it's that Wolff's book has provided Trump with a Major Feud, which as we all know fuels his life force.

"I support President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected", Mercer said. On "Today", Wolff said the president's action boosted sales.

The GOP plans to keep trying to discredit the book over the weekend, though they may need to rewrite their talking points to help party officials defend Trump's "very stable genius" claim - particularly since his bizarre self-defense will just bring more attention on the subject, possibly overshadowing the president's weekend summit with Republican lawmakers at Camp David.

Wolff said Friday he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration. "I spoke to people who spoke to the president on a daily, sometimes minute-by-minute, basis".

Trump's attorney has demanded a halt to publication of the book or excerpts.

John and Ramona Cota, who were at Barnes and Noble looking for the book, said they had already spent "a couple hours" on the hunt. Far from it. Majority of people in this country want Donald Trump investigated for the sexual assault allegations.

"Michael Wolff, who was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump's first year, has said in promoting his new book that Trump is unfit for the presidency".
