‘You had one job’: Internet roasts ex-Trump adviser’s hilariously botched attempt to discredit Wolff

Published

on

Former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka on Monday published an editorial in The Hill in which he tried to discredit Michael Wolff, the author of the bestselling book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

However, Gorka seems to have inadvertently undermined President Donald Trump’s claim that Wolff was not given wide access to the White House to report on his book.

“When I met Michael Wolff in Reince Priebus’ office, where he was waiting to talk to Steve Bannon, and after I had been told to also speak to him for his book, my attitude was polite but firm: ‘Thanks but no thanks,'” writes Gorka. “Our brief encounter reinforced my gut feeling that this oleaginous scribe had no interest in being fair and unbiased.”

This statement contradicts Trump’s insistence last week that he “authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book.” After all, if Trump had turned down Wolff’s request to report from the White House multiple times, why would Gorka have been instructed to talk with Wolff — and why would Wolff have been allowed to hang out in former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus’ office?

The internet erupted in mockery at Gorka unwittingly confirming Wolff’s own account of how he got access to the White House, while simultaneously kneecapping his former boss.

How about if an important person hurt somebody of low means? It's not very scholarly, but I think it's the truth. I think that's what they meant by high crimes."

Published

on

Appearing on HBO's "Real Time,' former U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul told host Bill Maher that Republican lawmakers can't stand Donald Trump and talk trash about him behind his back

During the "Overtime" segment, McFaul was asked about Russian involvement with GOP lawmakers before turning back to Trump.

"What really bothers me about folks like this," he began while speaking to the host who has just ripped into the president, "They don't like Trump. They talk like you. I mean, they all talk like you."

"The Republicans?" host Maher asked.

"All those guys," McFaul shot back. "When they're talking in the family, that's what they say among the family. And yet when they come out in the public, then they care about taxes and other issues and maybe power, but they just forget about all this other stuff -- and that is what I can't respect."
