Liberal journalist Michael Wolff, the man who has bragged that his new book will “finally bring down” the Trump presidency, on Monday absurdly insisted that he has “no political agenda.” To which CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell responded, “Fair enough. Fair enough.”
This came seconds after Wolff mocked Trump as stupid: “I can reliably say Donald Trump has never read a work of fiction.” He then claimed, “But the important point I want to make is this book is not about my impression of the President. I came into this with no agenda. I continued to have no political agenda.”
To her credit, O’Donnell eventually pointed out: “But you have written it’s worse than anybody thought, that he’s mentally unstable, that he’s an idiot.” Wolff disassembled and spun, saying:
I didn’t say — I did not say he’s mentally unstable. I would not be qualified to do this. I would say I have merely described and mostly not my impressions, the impressions of other people of the people he deals with on a daily basis.
Wolff really just needs to pick a narrative and stick with it. He bragged to NPR that his book would “will finally end this – that will end this presidency” and that, “It’s not ideal that [Trump] is in the White House.” This is in addition to touting calls that the President is “a moron.”
But, hey, no agenda, right?
