It seems as though with each passing day, the media case of Trump Derangement Syndrome grows more severe. Many may be hard pressed to remember the fact-challenged Michael Wolff “tell all” book, Fire and Fury, which was full of sloppy reporting. Despite this, on Tuesday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel was giddy as he covered the sequel to Fire and Fury, Siege: Trump Under Fire.
It was obvious to anyone who viewed the program that Kimmel badly yearned for the details in the book to be true, so he covered them as if they were. “Some of the McNuggets, according to the book, the President called Brett Kavanaugh, his pick for Supreme Court Justice, weak and that he was probably molested by a priest. He said Second Lady Karen Pence gives him the creeps and of Mike Pence, he said, 'Why does he look at me like that?'”
In his monologue, Kimmel conveniently forgot to mention a key claim in the book that Robert Mueller drew up an obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump was already debunked by Mueller’s office.
The sheer absurdity of the claims are enough to make anyone who is not brainwashed by the liberal media question the journalistic integrity of all the news outlets who gave airtime to the book.

JIMMY KIMMEL: The Queen as a gift gave Trump a book, that's funny, right? But it was not the book that people are talking about today. There's another White House tell-all. This one is called Siege, Trump Under Fire, the sequel to Fire and Fury, which came out last year and sold four million copies. This one paints a similarly unflattering portrait of the President. Some of the McNuggets, according to the book, the President called Brett Kavanaugh, his pick for Supreme Court Justice, weak and that he was probably molested by a priest. He said second lady Karen Pence gives him the creeps and of Mike Pence, he said, why does he look at me like that?
He looks at you like that because he has to concentrate because sometimes it's hard not to imagine Ricky Martin in a bathing suit. But the book claims Trump bragged, he said he received oral sex from a former U.N. Ambassador. He said he banged a low-level White House employee and doesn't need Viagra, he needs a pill to calm things down, down there. President, by the way did you know that? Trump's assistant for 14 years on The Apprentice called him a 12-year-old in a man's body, who can't handle numbers and can't walk down steps. And another White House staffer who reportedly spent countless hours with the President, said, "I have never met anyone crazier than Donald Trump." But I'm sure that's all fake news. He's a very stable genius. He's told us that himself.
