While Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” was written to give an honest and brutal account of the strange occurrences in The White House, some of the content shared about the Trump administration are comical. As obviously chaotic and more dramatic than an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” as the Trump White House clearly is, some of the details of Wolff’s memoir seem over-the-top and too scripted, even for Trump’s standards.
If one read”Fire and Fury“as more of an awkward workplace comedy like “The Office,” with Trump as Michael Scott, Jared Kushner as Jim Halpert, Ivanka Trump as Pam Beasley, and Steve Bannon as Dwight Schrute, then it would be a hilariously funny book with enough wild, cringe-worthy awkwardness, uncomfortable and otherwise zany moments.  To believe the stories illustrated in the book or not to is totally up to you, but I’ll cover them as they’re reported.

The first moment in “Fire and Fury” that was more cringe worthy than my bar mitzvah was in the fifth chapter entitled “Jarvanka”, when “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski visited The White House for lunch with the new president, only nine days after Trump’s inauguration.
As they ate fish, a food which Brzezinski doesn’t eat, Trump then decided to imitate a Jewish mother and directly asked Scarborough and Mika about their well-known romantic relationship.

Senior Adviser Jared Kushner then interjected that he was an ordained Unitarian minister and that he could marry Scarborough and Brzezinski. Trump, being the suave conversationalist that he isn’t, added that the couple would much more prefer to be married by the president at the infamous Mar-a-Lago resort. Given that the couple were not even engaged until May, it’s safe to say they declined that offer.

And quite like the office of Dunder Mifflin, the Trump administration had an array of interesting characters that made appearances. According to the book, Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, hung out in the Trump Tower for months on end with nothing much to do; some people were not comfortable with this.
Scaramucci’s best moment occurred when he interrupted a meeting of Kellyanne Conway’s husband’s law firm just to praise the firm’s important lawyers, and proceeded to go on a tangent about how Trump genuinely cares about the working class. He shamelessly self-promoted even further as he quickly name-dropped several Long Island elites, much to the discomfort of the meeting’s attendees.
If there is one thing I can say about “Fire and Fury”, it is that while it certainly discusses current events regarding the Trump administration such as the Russia investigation and Trump’s false claims of wiretapping, it’s much more enjoyable to read as a political comedy of our nation’s leaders. With the everyday chaos of the current White House administration, I think we all need a good laugh.
