The Guardian view on the Trump presidency: a reckless and undignified spectacle | Editorial

Written without much hindsight and without access to official papers, Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury is more than journalism, if less than history

Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury, is an unforgettable ringside view of the reckless and undignified spectacle of the Donald Trump presidency so far. It will not surprise anyone that the US president comes across as a vain, delusional and unstable character whose public utterances could mostly be disproved by provable facts. Unable to master the presidential mien, Mr Trump has chosen to defile it. Without experienced advisers and consiglieres, Trump’s White House was divided into two camps: one led by his daughter, Ivanka, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and the other by Steve Bannon, a Mephistophelian figure credited with channelling passions that more conventional politicians have been careful not to exploit. Mr Bannon, once Mr Trump’s chief strategist, is the book’s unkempt star. It is through his rise and fall that we learn how unsuited Mr Trump is to the world’s most demanding job.

Mr Bannon’s view is that Mr Trump is not likely to make it to the end of his first term. Either the president is brought down by the “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” meetings held by his son and a group of Russians or by federal prosecutors who unearth serious financial crimes. On this analysis Mr Bannon gave Mr Trump equal chances of staying in office, being removed by Congress or being declared mentally unfit for office.
