“FIRE AND FURY” BOOK PUBLISHERS MOVES UP RELEASE DATE AFTER RECEIVING CEASE AND DESIST LETTER FROM PRESIDENT’S LAWYERS
Donald Trump rolled his administration, led by Sarah Huckabee Sanders out to downplay and dispute the authenticity of author Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire & Fury” after a few excerpts of the book were released to the public. Most notable, the comments made by former Trump Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon. After seeing the book’s name posted all over the internet and constantly talked about on television, people quickly rushed out to pre-order the book and pushed it to number one on Amazon, even though the book wasn’t due for release until next Tuesday. Trump lawyers hoped to put an end to all of the bad talk about him, his family, and probably most importantly his intelligence. (I’m hearing that multiple members of Trump’s campaign and many members of his every day orbit has called the president stupid.) The lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to Steve Bannon and the Publishers of the upcoming book Fire and Fury. Instead of backing off, it’s now being reported that the book’s publishers have moved up the release date. There is the outside chance that this whole feud with Bannon and everything else is a ploy to sell a bunch of books. I don’t put anything past Trump. They all could be in this together. You know, nothing sells something better than a bunch of drama! People fall for it every time. That’s probably not the case here. What happened here is probably that by attempting to downplay the book as trash, Trump messed around and helped the author make, what I’m sure will be tens of millions of dollars, when everything is said and done. He didn’t do it purposely, but Trump has managed to make at least one person in this Country a sh*tload of money.
CNN (@cnn) reports, the publisher of Michael Wolff’s new book about president Trump is rushing the book onto bookshelves.
“Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of ‘Fire And Fury’ By Michael Wolff to Friday, January 5th, at 9am EST, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9th.”
A Spokesperson for Henry Holt Publishing told CNN Thursday afternoon. Booksellers were notified of the decision earlier today. The move came hours after lawyers for president Trump sent a cease and desist letter to Henry Holt and Michael Wolff demanding that the book not be released. Author Michael Wolff dropped the following Tweet after Holt Publishing’s decision.
