The author of the Trump-bashing bestseller ‘Fire and Fury’ Michael Wolff was hit with an inconvenient question in an Australian TV interview. So inconvenient, in fact, that he had to feign a technical malfunction and run off.
The meltdown occurred during an interview with Channel 9’s “Today Australia” anchor Ben Fordham, who asked Wolff about his claims Trump was in an ongoing affair – his implied mistress none other than UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
“You said during a TV interview just last month that you are ‘absolutely sure’ that Donald Trump is currently having an affair while president behind the back of the First Lady, and I repeat you said you were ‘absolutely sure’,” Fordham asked. “Do you owe the president and the First Lady an apology?”
Instead of answering the question, Wolff appeared to feign a glitch in his earpiece, swearing that he could no longer hear the show host’s burning enquiries.
“I can’t hear you,” he stated as Fordham repeated his question several times. “I’m not getting anything.” Wolff then unplugged his equipment and stormed off the set.
This already got Wolff tarred and feathered on national television, after co-host Mika Brzezinski castigated him during his Feb. 1 appearance on MSNBC program “Morning Joe”.
Brzezinski took the opportunity to roast the author in front of everyone, mentioning his book’s shoddy workmanship and pointing out his efforts to backtrack on his previous claims.
