Michael Wolff’s Trump book hits #1 on Amazon, publisher speeds up rollout plan

And Donald Trump has just learned about the Streisand Effect:

“Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of ‘Fire and Fury,’ by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9,” a Henry Holt spokeswoman told CNN Thursday afternoon.

Booksellers were notified of the decision earlier in the day on Thursday.

The move came hours after a personal attorney for President Trump sent a cease-and-desist letter to Henry Holt and Wolff demanding that the book not be released.

Instead, the publisher is doing the opposite.

Wolff tweeted about the publisher’s decision to speed up the release: “Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.”

I’m waist deep in snow today and recovering from a bad cold so last night I made this. We may not have power much longer so I just warmed up a batch as the wind starts to pick up.

I wouldn’t mind going without power for a bit since it would block out Trump tweets except no power means no heat, no hot water, no stove, no fridge… Bleh.

Stay warm if you’re in the middle of this storm folks.

Trump Trying to Stop Publication of Explosive Book About his Presidency

From The Hill:

President Trump is reportedly attempting to stop the publication of “Fire and Fury,” Michael Wolff’s explosive new book about his campaign and presidency.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump’s attorneys have sent a cease-and-desist letter to the book’s publisher, demanding that Henry Holt & Company not publish the book, and apologize to the president.

The letter, according to the Post, demands that Henry Holt and Co. “immediately cease and desist from any further publication, release or dissemination of the book,” including excerpts and summaries of the book’s contents, and requests a copy of the book in its entirety as they pursue possible legal action.

Trump also reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon late Wednesday, saying that he violated a non-disclosure agreement by speaking with Wolff, and accusing him of making “disparaging” and “outright defamatory” statements. A statement from Trump attorney Charles Harder said that the president plans to take legal action against Bannon.
