On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders held a press briefing, and the majority of the questions directed at her were about the anti-Trump book by Michael Wolff, which was released on Friday.
Sanders shot down the claims made in the book and even said:
“I'm not going to waste my time or the country's time going page by page talking about a book that's complete fantasy and just full of tabloid gossip because it is sad, pathetic, and our administration and focus is going to be on moving the country forward."
A reporter brought up allegations in the book that suggested President Donald Trump was “mentally unfit” for office.
Sanders fired back:
“It's disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn't be sitting there and wouldn't have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen. This is an incredibly strong and good leader. That's why we've had such a successful in 2017 and why we're going to continue to do great things as we move forward in this administration.”
