Trump Blasts Michael Wolff ‘Fiction’ Book, Takes More Shots at ‘Sloppy Steve’ Bannon


President Trump took questions from reporters today and once again defended his mental fitness while bashing Michael Wolff‘s new book.

Regarding this morning’s tweets, the President touted how he went to the best college, how he was an “excellent student” and businessman, and “ran for President one time and won.”

He said Wolff “does not know me” and denied that the author interviewed him for three hours, saying, “It didn’t exist, okay? It’s in his imagination.”

Trump expressed some pleasant surprise how some of the people in the “fake news” spoke up criticizing Wolff, calling the book “a work of fiction.”

He invoked how U.S. libel laws are not more “strict” and once again took a shot at Steve Bannon:

“I guess Sloppy Steve brought him into the White House quite a bit, and it was one of those things… that’s why Sloppy Steve is now looking for a job.”
