Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," which sold out its first printing faster than a new Harry Potter, has the Trump damage control team working overtime. Let's listen in:
Spin Doctor: "In this book, you're quoted as saying the President has all the mental capability of a watermelon."
White House insider: "I didn't say that."
Spin Doctor: "Good. Did Wolff have his tape recorder running when you didn't say that/"
Insider: "Uh...I'm not sure."
Spin Doctor #2: "Look, they're claiming he doesn't read. Well, what if we show them his lifetime subscriptions to Penthouse and Hustler?"
Spin Doctor #3: "Hey, McDonald's is on the phone. They want to know if they can film a commercial of him in bed eating a bag of Big Mac cheeseburgers."
Spin Doctor #4: "Thank heavens. We deserve a break today."
