Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. "That's also why the American people chose him".

On Thursday Rebekah Mercer issued a statement distancing her family from Bannon.

Beers Books in downtown Sac is keeping a running tab of calls they've received today asking for Fire & Fury. Book Culture, an independent bookseller in the Upper West Side neighbourhood, said on Friday morning four people had bought the book and it had about 160 copies available, with 150 copies available in its other store.

Trump said earlier this week that Bannon had "lost his mind".

The White House press secretary said the author of the book, contrary to the claims, had no access to the White House or the president. Following Trump's threatening and dangerous tweets about North Korea and Trump's "nuclear button", Richard W. Painter-who served as an adviser to President George W. Bush-tweeted his own concerns about Trump's psychological state, too.

"That this was more peculiar than they ever imagined it could be".

Twitter user Sandra F Woodward wrote: Trump "holds that water glass like my 3-year-old grandson holds his cup!"

The book, which is to be published Jan. 9, was based on more than 200 interviews, including conversations with the president and senior staff, according to New York magazine.

Even though dementia concerns have been raised on and off, it made headlines when Trump unveiled his new national security strategy in Washington, D.C. on December 18. "It is entirely his reality", Wolff said.

Publication of Wolff's book came as news emerged that at least a dozen members of the US Congress were briefed last month by Yale University professor of psychiatry Bandy Lee on Trump's mental health.

ED MARTIN: Great to be with you, Scott. The publisher instead moved up the release date to Friday.

It already has cost him a key backer. Some lines in some areas of the country went around the block.

Michael Wolff, author of the new bombshell book "Fire and Fury: Inside Trump's White House", told the BBC in an interview broadcast Saturday that he believes understanding revelations resulting from his book about President Trump will "finally end this presidency". He was, you know, I'd say excited about all the Trump successes.

Trump took to Twitter late on Friday to renew his attacks on Wolff, and on his former top aide Steve Bannon who was quoted in the book.

He said "I will tell you the one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common: They all say he is like a child", Wolff explained. "Saw him there. And shortly thereafter, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon got into a car, went out to Langley to see the director of the CIA and the deputy director, and to ask about these things that Tony Blair had told the president".

Wolff said he spoke with Trump for several hours while working on the book, and that he spoke to people who met with Trump on a "daily and sometimes minute-by-minute basis".

Then, during a rambling debate with Clinton in September 2016, he opined that his "strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament" - which drew laughter from the crowd and a "whoo, okay!" from his Democratic opponent.
