Trump affair rumors swirling around the White House
While the president of the United States Donald Trump takes a break from advocating for the wall to separate America from Mexico, rumor has it that he might be enjoying a little bit on the side with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
If one is to believe author Michael Wolff who has penned Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, then once again, a U.S. president is having trouble keeping his pants on.
The revelation came out on Friday during a Real Time with Bill Maher interview, and while Wolff did not come out and actually say that Trump was 100 percent cheating on his wife, he was pretty darn close to doing just that.
“I didn’t have the blue dress,” Wolff said. “It’s about somebody’s he’s f**king right now?” Maher asked, excited.
“Yes,” Wolff answered. “You just have to read between the lines,” he said. “Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’ll say bingo.”
I have a hard time coming to the same conclusion that Wolff does when I read between the lines as Haley used to be a critic of Trump, originally campaigning for Marco Rubio and then supporting Ted Cruz.
Trump was also not a fan of Haley, as can be heard in the below clip:
Once Trump became president, Haley did have a sudden change of heart and signed on to work with him.
Maybe Wolff was holding back the juicy stuff to make people go out and buy his book? Or maybe there is no sure proof at all. Regardless, the White House is buzzing over this news and Trump is not a happy camper.
From The Book
The paragraph in question is near the end of the book and reads as follows:
“By October, however, many on the president’s staff took particular notice of one of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley — ‘as ambitious as Lucifer,” in the characterization of one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.”
Social Media Buzz
Social media has been buzzing all weekend with speculation. Here are some reactions from Twitter.
James Gunn tweets: “In just the past two days Michael Wolff intimated Trump & Nikki Haley are having an affair, a porn star said Trump asked her to spank his bottom with a Forbes Magazine, Glenn Simpson accused Trump of money-laundering & cavorting with Russian mobsters & the government shutdown.”
From the Palmer Report: “It sure sounds like Michael Wolff just accused Donald Trump of having an affair with Nikki Haley.”
Seth Abramson tweets: “At this point it’s mere speculation, but Michael Wolff has said that a paragraph toward the back of FIRE AND FURY reveals who Trump’s current mistress is (an affair that opens the president up to blackmail).”
The White House, Haley and Wolff are yet to comment.
