In recent days, a newly-released controversial book titled “Fire and Fury” has been the subject of various media headlines. The book, which tells the story “inside the Trump White House,” sparked outrage after it reportedly contained false information that presented President Donald Trump in a negative light.

Several sources mentioned in the book assured that they were misquoted and other pieces of information included were actually supposed to be off the record. However, “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff has since insisted, despite people questioning his credibility, that the "facts" inside of the book are true.

Wolff appeared on “The View” Wednesday, January 10th to discuss his book. To his dismay, conservative co-host Meghan McCain, daughter of Senator John McCain, intensely questioned him about his credibility.

McCain began, “Michael, your credibility is being questioned.”

Wolff interrupted McCain, implying that the people questioning his credibility don’t necessarily matter (appearing to refer to President Trump). Previously, Wolff stated in an interview that Trump has “less credibility than anyone who walks on Earth.”

McCain, who read his book, shot back, “Let me finish,” as she listed off nearly dozens of names who doubted Wolff and past situations where Wolff fabricated information. She also pointed out the distrust his readers face when several people have come out saying these quotes are untrue.

“This is why people hate journalists by the way. It’s why I don’t believe in the concept of off the record,” McCain blasted, as Wolff tried to explain why he incorporated details that were originally supposed to be off the record.
