File this one under “not a surprise.” Michael Wolff predicts a bleak future for Donald Trump — and the media. The “Fire & Fury” author predicted before a packed house at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Monday morning that President Trump will be ousted from the White House in short order. “We will soon find ourselves in the mother of all constitutional crises … When [Vice President] Mike Pence becomes president, which I believe that he will become, the media business goes into a deep depression,” Wolff said. “Mike Pence is literally the most boring person on Earth. He’s faceless.” A nonchalant Wolff delivered the news, while basking in the success of his colorful, bestselling book that describes Trump’s dysfunctional White House. The book has sold over 2 million hard copies in the US since its Jan. 5 release — plus millions of e-copies. Wolff’s explosive book’s rise … [Read more...] about Michael Wolff is still smug as ever

Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei shared an image of himself reading the Persian-language edition of Michael Wolff's 2018 book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" on Friday, just days after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear agreement. Wolff's bombshell exposé on the Trump administration shot to the top of Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's best-seller list in January. The tell-all book claims to detail the dysfunction inside the White House, but was heavily disputed by Mr. Trump and members of his administration. BBC News' Hadi Nili reports the image was taken by court photographer Raouf Mohseni at this year's Tehran International Book Fair. Earlier this week, Khamenei responded to Mr. Trump's announcement about the Iran deal by saying his speech contained "over 10 lies," without elaborating on what they were.
