The remarkable spectacle of Trump defending his mental stability comes after the President and some of his top officials spent the last few days countering claims in author Michael Wolff'snew book, "Fire and Fury", about Trump's mental fitness to serve as President.
The furious White House briefing, the futile cease and desist letter issued by Donald Trump's lawyers, and the enraged statement and subsequent tweets from the President of the United States served to provide a launchpad for Wolff that money couldn't buy. Now cut off from political and financial supporters, the alt-right media firebrand called the Trump scion a "patriot" and said he regretted that his delay in responding to "inaccurate reporting" had diverted attention from the president's first-year accomplishments.

"I think it's a disgrace that somebody's able to have something, do something like that", Trump said of the book released Friday.
Wolff added that Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who also serves as a White House senior adviser, have placed blame on the president for the couple's legal quagmire.
Wolffsays his book has included more than 200 interviews, many of which were taped.
