Michael Wolff's book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” has quickly become a best-seller but also been met with scrutiny over a variety of its claims.

In addition to a variety of negative insights, the author made worrisome comments about First Lady Melania Trump's behavior on election night.

He claimed that President Donald Trump's team was collectively hoping to lose, and after he did, “Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching.”

Wolff wrote that after 8 p.m. ET, when it became apparent Trump could win, “Melania was in tears — and not of joy.”

However, a Page Six writer who was with the Trumps the night of the election revealed on Monday that it couldn't be further from the truth. Cindy Adams wrote:

She was always supportive. She gave the race her imprimatur. Melania’s smart. Savvy. And sharper than whoever fed this author his dog bowl.

The writer wasn't the only person in the room that night, and she explained that her version of events, in which Trump didn't shed a tear, has been corroborated by others.

“None of us — not one of us — not a single one of us — recall Melania crying,” she said. “And we’ve phoned one another to confirm.”

Adams added that had the first lady been teary, which she reiterated she wasn't, “It’d have been either from excitement or if her hairdresser was late.”
