While many in the liberal media are pretending leftist author Michael Wolff’s new anti-Trump book is the unvarnished truth, many key individuals quoted in the hit piece are calling the quotes attributed to them completely false.

Wolff’s book, titled, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” was released Friday, and it has already been ripped to shreds.

On Monday, Limbaugh spoke about the book during his radio show, where he said comments Wolff attributed to him are untrue.

Wolff attempted to pass off Limbaugh’s remarks as characterizations of what he believed Limbaugh said at a memorial for the late Roger Ailes, which didn’t sit well with the conservative radio host.

The “characterization” in the book claimed that Limbaugh and Fox News host Laura Ingraham were “struggling to parse support for Trumpism even as they distanced themselves from Trump himself” at Ailes funeral.

Rush said not only did Trump’s name never come up, but charged that no one at the funeral or memorial said anything of that nature about Trump:

But this didn’t happen. I really don’t even understand what it means. But at the memorial for Roger Ailes there isn’t a single person that – look, Trump’s name may have come up in people telling stories, I don’t even think that. But there was no discussion of the Trump presidency or Ailes involvement in it or Trumpism. And there certainly wasn’t anybody tried to distance themselves from Trump or Trumpism at the Roger Ailes memorial.

This is entirely, I mean it is completely made up. I don’t even understand what the basis for that little reference is, because it’s totally fake.

Many, many others have come out and called Wolff’s book nothing more than tabloid gossip that promotes lies.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted that Wolff’s entire book was “full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.”

Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, said: “The book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section. Mrs. Trump supported her husband’s decision to run for president and in fact, encouraged him to do so. She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did.”

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who Wolff wrote in the book warned Trump he was under surveillance by British spies, called the claims “categorically absurd” and “simply untrue.”

Anna Wintour, the longtime Vogue editor, fired back at an assertion in the book that she begged Trump to appoint her as his ambassador to the United Kingdom, calling Wolff’s claim: “laughably preposterous.”

It appears Wolff’s book was nothing more than “characterizations” about what he wanted people to have said so he could sell a juicy book peddling gossip and falsehoods to make money.

Many Americans will believe the Trumps and Limbaugh long before they ever trust a slimy person like Wolff.
