Matt Drudge: I Had Dinner With Trump, Michael Wolff’s Book is ‘Fabricated Bullsh*t’

Drudge Report creator Matt Drudge released a rare statement today via Twitter in which called out Michael Wolff over what he has written about President Donald Trump‘s mental state.

The Fire and Fury author is still in the middle of his media tour to promote his explosive, controversial new book about the chaos and dysfunction surrounding the Trump presidency. Wolff has already offered plenty of anecdotes that raise questions about Trump’s mental fitness, and in a recent interview with Australian Broadcasting Corporation, he reiterated his view that Trump has no real desire to be president.

Enter Drudge, who emerged on Twitter to say that he recently met with Trump, and what he saw proves that Wolff’s book is “fabricated bullshit.”

Wolff’s book caused an explosion in the media and political worlds earlier this month — particularly due to the statements he got from former Trump chief strategist, Steve Bannon. Bannon gave Wolff major White House access last year to write his book, and Bannon went on the record to criticize the Trump campaign’s “treasonous” meeting with a Kremlin lawyer.

This led to a feud where Trump denounced his old campaign CEO by referring to him as “Sloppy Steve.” Bannon was eventually forced out of Breitbart as a result of the controversial episode.
