Washington DC – Donald Trump has angrily announced that he intends to sue the publisher of The White House tell all book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, just as soon Sarah Huckabee has finished reading it to him.

Sarah Huckabee, White House Press Secretary, told The Rochdale Herald’s White House Correspondent.

“My job was much easier when Donald was into The Gruffalo at bedtime. It’s the story of a mouse who gets what he wants by lying to everybody he meets in the deep dark wood. He really identified with that story.”

“But now he’s got me reading Michael Wolff’s book about The White House, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

“It doesn’t have many pictures in it so it’s quite frustrating for him, it certainly is taking a bit longer than the ten minutes it usually took for me to get him off to sleep.”

“He get pretty angry every time I have to read stuff that he’s actually said and he gets very agitated during the Steve Bannon bits.”

The New York Times has reported that the lawyer, Charles J Harder, who specialises in libel cases and won Hulk Hogan’s claim against Gawker Media, claimed that the book is possibly libellous.

“Mr Trump hereby demands that you immediately cease and desist from any further publication, release or dissemination of the book until his Nanny has had the chance to read the entire book to him.”

The White House has described the book as “trashy tabloid fiction” and “filled with false and misleading accounts”. A bit like The White House then.
