Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has just gone on sale, despite President Trump’s frightening efforts to suppress it, and so far it looks like it’s a hit. It’s currently the best-selling book on Amazon, and copies sold out in less than 20 minutes at one bookstore in D.C. That means that in the coming days we’re likely to hear many more rumors about the president’s weird personal habits, his family’s not-so-light treason, and everyone in the White House thinking he’s mentally unwell.
