Guest: Michael Wolff, Eddie Glaude Jr.

Journalist MICHAEL WOLFF has said his book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, is going to bring down the president. It details his administrations transition into the White House and the first nine months of Trump’s presidency. The central claim of the book is that 100% of the people surrounding the President question his mental stability, but the scintillating writing style and questionable reporting methods have caused a backlash. In this hour, Marty talks with Wolff about his access into the White House, Trump’s relationship with former chief strategist Steve Bannon, Bannon’s ouster, and Trump’s controversial decision to fire FBI Director, James Comey. Then, we get reaction to the Wolff book and Trump’s behavior over the last few weeks from EDDIE GLAUDE JR, a professor of religion and African-American studies at Princeton University.
