Trump-bashing book is in big demand in Palm Beach County

Fire and Fury, the popular Trump-bashing book written by Michael Wolff, has been reserved by 845 library card-carrying members of the Palm Beach County Library system.

County librarians have not yet received copies of the book at the county’s 17 branches.

When the books are received, they will be lent out in the order the reservations were made.

Such high demand is common for popular books, Palm Beach County Librarian Kim Brown said on Tuesday afternoon.

“For popular books, this type of demand is not unusual,” she said.

In the book, Wolff questioned the 45th president’s fitness for office, claiming his own staff questions his competence.

The explosive book has made waves in the media since it was released Friday, one day after an attorney for the president sent a cease and desist order to Wolff and the book’s publisher.

Trump administration officials have rallied to the president's defense, with chief policy adviser Stephen Miller saying on national television that the book "is so contrary to reality" and calling it "trash."
