“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO show on Friday and revealed that his book subtly exposes an affair which Donald Trump has been having in the White House. Wolff didn’t give away the identity of the woman, but he did say that if you re-read the book, when you get to the paragraph in question, you’ll easily be able to figure out who it was. We already found one notable paragraph involving Trump and Kellyanne Conway. Now we’ve found another involving a different woman in the Trump administration.
Wolff said that the paragraph in question was “toward the end” of the book. Here’s what we’ve found on page 343, which very near the end of the book: “By October, however, many of the president’s staff took particular notice of one of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley – ‘as ambitious as Lucifer,’ in the characterization of one member of the senior staff – had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with the requisite submission, could be his heir apparent.”
The book goes on to say that “[Haley] had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.” It then ends with “The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One.” Again, we’re not making any accusations or assertions here. We’re simply attempting to figure out which paragraph Michael Wolff is referring to as part of his assertion that Trump has been having a White House affair.
Nikki Haley, as UN Ambassador, does not work in the White House. However, Wolff did point out that pretty much anyone can be snuck into Trump’s chaotic White House without garnering a lot of attention. Considering the seriousness of the assertion he’s making, and the instant curiosity that he’s kicked off tonight, we expect that Wolff will need to end up being more specific in the end.
