John Fund: Wolff Has 'Alternate Conceptualization of Reality'

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

Author Michael Wolff in his controversial new book has an "alternate conceptualization of reality" in his portrayal of President Donald Trump's White House, Newsmax analyst, columnist and author John Fund told host Bill Tucker on Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now."

"In specific instances, I think you really do have to question what (Trump) said and did, because Michael Wolff has a track record of having, shall we say, creative imagination, an alternate conceptualization of reality," said Fund, author of "Obama's Enforcer: Eric Holder's Justice Department."

Fund explained the "broad strokes" of Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," were "accurate," but said he took "imagined conversations where he wasn't in the room," depicting a version that would "strain credulity."

However, Fund went on to say "the broad picture" Wolff described was "in accord with what we know about this White House, which is that it's not the most organized place in the world."

He said former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who is quoted in the book, "may have said bizarre things he shouldn't have," but White House staffers would not have called "the president of the United States a moron in front of someone who knew they was a reporter."

"Someone may have said, 'I heard the staffer, I may have heard someone say the president was a moron,' but I don't think Michael Wolff actually heard that and he doesn't say he did," Fund said.

Bannon had "staffer's disease," according to Fund, which he described as having the attitude, "I am so smart, why are you sitting in that chair rather than me?"

He described Trump as "highly intelligent but highly inattentive," and claimed the president had "both forms of ADD in an extreme manner."

"He has both forms at the same time in an extreme way which means he won't listen to you but he has to have you pay attention to him," Fund said, adding, "By the way, he certainly knew how to read real estate contracts for many years."

The results of Trump's presidency should not be overlooked, Fund maintained, including record stock market gains, economic growth that was "through the roof," NATO allies paying their defense obligations and the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

"Look at what the world and the economy are better off now than they were a year ago," he said.

When comparing Trump to other former presidents, Fund said, had revelations been known at the time about President John F. Kennedy, "any normal person would've been compelled to say, 'My God, maybe this person shouldn't be president.'"

As far as holding presidents accountable for telling the truth, Fund suggested "if we got rid of every president who ever lied to us — 'You can keep your doctor. You can keep your health plan' — If we did that, we'd be very short on talent."
