Michael Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which was released early Friday, has spurred plenty of controversies as it makes bold claims about President Donald Trump, his family, and his administration. Many have already picked apart pieces of the book, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders even provided specific examples of its inaccuracy.
Now, Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham has added her two cents. On Friday night, she tweeted out a picture of the book with three lines highlighted. In one of those lines, her own name is mentioned. It references Roger Ailes’s funeral and claims that Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh tried to “distance themselves from Trump.”
At the funeral, Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham struggled to parse support for Trumpism even as they distanced themselves from Trump himself.
Ingraham tweeted the picture with the caption, “this is TOTALLY FALSE. I was there! ‘Distanced themselves from Trump’?! Total fabrication.”

The author has admitted that many parts of the book are “baldly untrue” and that many of the sources contradicted others, but he kept those parts in and decided to let the audience figure out what was true.
