Another blow to the credibility of book attacking Trump

Kayleigh McEnany:
Michael Wolff wasn’t with Trump on election night. Those who were prove his book wrong

A handful of people were in the kitchen at Trump Tower when Donald Trump found out that he was going to be president of the United States. Among them were Donald Trump’s family, Hope Hicks, Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller, Dan Scavino, and Keith Schiller.

Michael Wolff was not there. Steve Bannon was not there. But I spoke to some of the individuals who were in that small kitchen for my book, The New American Revolution.

The accounts of those who were actually in the room with the soon-to-be-president expose the wildly off base if not outright fraudulent work of Michael Wolff, a journalist who self-proclaims as “unreliable.”

Wolff describes Trump’s reaction to becoming president this way, purportedly revealed to him by Steve Bannon: “a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a horrified Trump.”
...

As the President-elect reflected on his first words to an attentive nation, he took notice of the images that came across his TV screen: half images of crying Clinton supporters contrasted with images of jubilant Trump voters. Reflecting on the sight of Clinton voters, Trump picked up the previously planned victory speech and ripped it up. The speech hit the elites and the establishment. It just wasn’t right for the moment. “I want to bring the people together. I want to speak to those people too,” Ivanka Trump remembered her father saying as he watched the distraught Clinton crowd and set the torn paper aside. “I see their pain.”

Not exactly the actions of a man who is “befuddled” or “horrified,” right? No, these are the actions of a leader intent on speaking to the entirety of a country whose wellbeing he was now responsible for.
...
There is more.

There is something else I remember from that night, that touches on the criticism of Trump for not having a close relationship with his youngest son, Barron.  I remember seeing Trump helping Barron with his tie as they prepared to go out for the speech.  It may be a small thing to some, but it struck me as a loving moment for a guy who was going out to give a speech about being elected President of the US.
