A book that claims Mr Donald Trump is unfit for office has shot to the top of Amazon's and Barnes and Noble's bestseller lists, helped by the US President's threats of legal action against author Michael Wolff.
Despite a wind chill of -3 degrees, Washington, D.C.'s political junkies lined up at Kramerbooks on Thursday night for the midnight release of journalist Michael Wolff's book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which blew up the nation's capital this week. Colbert joked. "I agree with Steve Bannon?".
Trump's attorney has demanded a halt to publication of the book or excerpts.
This morning Mr Wolff said his revelations were likely to bring an end to Mr Trump's time in the White House.
Tillerson's defence came as Washington devoured a new tell-all - Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - that rushed into bookstores after the White House failed to suppress it.
"Let me put a marker in the sand here: 100% of the people around him", Wolff said.
"Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence", Trump tweeted.
NBC interviewer Savannah Guthrie asked Wolff what he was getting at. "They spoke once by the phone for a few minutes, but it wasn't about the book". I thought that from the beginning this was going to be an extraordinary story in whatever way it went.
Mr Wolff chose to sidestep broader questions about his credibility on Today, claiming that he had written "millions" of words in his career and had never received a correction.
Wolff told NPR's Kelly McEvers that the Trump White House isn't just dysfunctional but shattered, with a president at the center of it all unwilling to learn or grow.
He added: "Even more to the point". So for instance, he inaccurately describes a report in the New York Times. They all say, 'He is like a child, ' and what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification. "Steve Bannon is where he is because somebody gave him the money to run Breitbart." .
"They say he's a moron, idiot. That's the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end. this presidency".
International leaders and diplomats do not know how to deal with this president.
Rush Limbaugh, the far-right conservative commentator and radio host, derided former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, calling him a leaker and a creation of wealthy GOP donors.
Trump cut ties with Brietbart chief Bannon on Wednesday, saying his former adviser had "lost his mind", in a blistering statement.
