    轰动内幕!川普爱追朋友妻 伊万卡想上位
    2018年1月4日 14:29 来源:英国广播公司
    [​IMG]

    一本新书披露,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump )对大选胜利感到十分“困惑”,也不喜欢自己的就职典礼,并且害怕白宫。

    美国记者迈克尔·沃尔夫(Michael Wolff)的新书《火与怒:特朗普白宫内幕》(Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House) 意图揭开伊万卡·特朗普(Ivanka Trump)不为人知的总统野心。

    这本书还详细描述了特朗普对于传媒大亨鲁伯特·默多克(Rupert Murdoch)的尊敬,但显然这种钦佩不是双向的。

    但是白宫新闻秘书莎拉·桑德斯(Sarah Sanders)称,书中充满了“虚假和有误导性的叙述”。

    沃尔夫称,著作是根据超过200次采访写成的。

    以下是这本书曝光的十一宗大内幕,并附有BBC驻北美记者安东尼·泽克尔(Anthony Zurcher)的评论。

    1. 班农认为小特朗普的一次会面是“叛国”行为

    这本书称,前白宫首席战略顾问斯蒂芬·班农(Steve Bannon)认为小唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump Jr )和一些俄罗斯人的一次会面是“叛国”行为。

    在2016年6月的会面中,俄罗斯人曾向小特朗普提供了关于希拉里·克林顿(Hillary Clinton)的不利信息。

    沃尔夫写道,班农曾这样描述那次会面:

    “这三位竞选团队中的高级人士认为,在特朗普大厦25楼的会议室与外国政府人员见面是一个好主意——在没有律师在场的情况下。他们没带任何律师。即使你认为这不是叛国、不爱国或坏行为,我却认为这就是,你应该立即报告美国联邦调查局。”

    据报道,班农说司法部将主力调查特朗普竞选团队与俄罗斯之间的洗钱关系,并称“他们将会在全国电视上像碾碎鸡蛋一样碾碎小特朗普”。

    泽克尔说:班农只用几句就引爆了炸弹。白宫一直努力贬低特朗普大厦去年六月发生的会面的重要性、并企图指控相关调查是猎巫行为。班农指出,这次会面糟糕、更令人不可原谅的是愚蠢极了。班农直接指控特朗普家人、并使用针对个人的言词,令他的攻击更凌厉。

    2. 特朗普对大选胜利“十分困惑”

    《纽约》杂志收录了沃尔夫的一篇文章。文章指,沃尔夫称特朗普去年11月赢得总统大选后十分惊愕。

    “大选之夜晚上八点后不久,当没有意料到的趋势——特朗普可能实际赢得选举——似乎被证实后,小特朗普告诉一个朋友,他的父亲看上去好像见到了鬼。梅拉尼娅流下了眼泪——却不是开心的泪水。在一个多小时中,班农观察到特朗普从困惑变得难以置信,然后又变得惊恐。但是最后,特朗普突然变成了一个相信他应该成为、并且有完全能力当美国总统的人。”

    泽克尔说:这与特朗普圈子的说法大相径庭。竞选团队有些成员或许正准备为散选后“软着陆”作准备,但特朗普与紧密盟友相信他们会取得成功。“惊恐的特朗普”从来都不是剧本的一部分。

    [​IMG]

    3. 特朗普不满就职典礼

    沃尔夫写道:“特朗普并不享受自己的就职典礼。他对一线明星冷落典礼感到很生气,对布莱尔宫的设施感到不满,而且明显在与自己的妻子吵架,他的妻子看上去快哭了。”

    但是第一夫人办公室否认了这些说法。

    传播总监斯蒂芬妮·格里沙姆(Stephanie Grisham)在声明中说:“特朗普夫人支持丈夫竞选总统的决定,事实上,还鼓励他这么做。她有信心他能赢,并且在他赢得大选后十分开心。”

    泽克尔说:梅拉尼娅板着脸、当丈夫望向她时强颜欢笑的视频早前疯传,沃尔夫的说法与视频的故事一模一样。另外,这也解释了为何特朗普对就职典礼的成功、出席人数如此坚持。他认为自己被轻视及受委屈。

    4. 特朗普喜欢“追求”朋友的妻子

    根据美国媒体获得的书中另一章节,特朗普曾经炫耀,与他朋友的妻子上床让“生活有意义”。

    “在追求朋友的妻子时,他会试图说服她其丈夫也许并不是她想象的样子,”沃尔夫引述特朗普的朋友称。

    5. 特朗普认为白宫“恐怖”

    沃尔夫写道:“事实上,特朗普发现白宫让人烦恼,甚至有一点恐怖。他回到自己的卧室——这是自肯尼迪以来第一対有自己房间的总统夫妇。在初到白宫的那些天,他订购了两台电视,尽管白宫已经有一台了。他还购买了一把门锁,这导致他和美国特勤局曾短暂对峙,因为美国特勤局坚持他们进入房间的权限。”

    泽克尔说:自成年以来,特朗普一直根据自己的规矩生活──作为一个地产界富商,他的财富可以满足他的兴致及个人特质。对他来说,适应白宫生活一定令他感到震惊。

    6. 伊万卡想当总统

    沃尔夫称,特朗普的女儿和女婿贾里德·库什纳(Jared Kushner)据称达成了一项协议:伊万卡未来可能竞选总统。

    “衡量了风险和回报后,在他们知悉的人的建议下,库什纳和伊万卡决定接受他们在白宫的角色。这是这对夫妇的共同决定,在某种意义上是共同的工作。他们之间还达成了一项认真的协议:如果未来某些时候机会出现,她会竞选总统。伊万卡想,第一位女总统并不是希拉里,而是伊万卡……当有人告知班农伊万卡与库什纳的协定时,他感到十分震惊。”

    泽克尔说:班农与库什纳夫妇不和并非甚么秘密,亦不令人惊讶。他们两人代表班农对抗的一切──东岸的精英主义及裙带关系带来的“权利”。由于家庭的关系,总统会聆听他们的意见──根据沃尔夫的说法,他们两人更希望缔造政治王朝。

    7. 伊万卡嘲笑父亲的“遮秃发型”

    书中称,美国第一女儿曾取笑父亲被指称的“头皮缩减手术”。

    “她对待父亲有一些冷漠、甚至讽刺,甚至向其他人嘲笑他的遮秃发型。”

    泽克尔说:假如这件“内幕”令特朗普最感不满的话,并不会令人感到意外。特朗普对自己的头发深感自豪,并曾让《今夜秀》主持吉米·法伦(Jimmy Fallon)在节目上抚摸他的头发,以确认头发是真的。特朗普的发型,跟他的酒店跟镀金电梯一样,都是特朗普品牌的重要部份。

    8. 白宫不确定优先事项

    白宫副幕僚长凯蒂·沃尔什(Katie Walsh)曾询问库什纳,政府希望实现什么目标?

    但是书中称,库什纳没有给出答案。

    “‘给我总统想关注的三件事情,’她(沃尔什)要求,‘白宫的前三位优先事项是什么?’这是一个能想象到的最基本的问题——任何一名合格的总统候选人在入主宾夕法尼亚大道1600号之前就应该能回答。特朗普上台六周后,库什纳仍然没有一个答案。‘是的,’他对沃尔什说。‘我们也许应该讨论这个。’”

    泽克尔说:新政府都需要时间去找到立足点,但特朗普政府这个问题更加严重。他的竞选政纲包括增强边界控制、重新谈判贸易协议、大规模减税并推倒奥巴马医保,决定哪些议题是优先选项显现是个挑战。当踏进白宫时,他容许国会以医改成为首项议题──但该项目并不顺利,缠绕特朗普将近一年。

    [​IMG]

    9. 特朗普钦佩默多克

    曾给默多克(Rupert Murdoch)写过传记的沃尔夫,指特朗普十分尊敬这位传媒大亨。

    “鲁伯特·默多克曾承诺要拜访当选总统特朗普,但他来晚了。当一些客人打算离开时,越来越激动的特朗普保证默多克已经在路上了。‘他是一个伟大的人,最后的伟人,’特朗普说,‘你们必须留下来看看他。’”

    泽克尔说:特朗普于竞选期间,曾与大众新闻发生冲突。不过,特朗普是福克斯新闻(Fox News)的粉丝──而他上台后,福克斯新闻是他最大的支持者。

    10. 默多克称特朗普为“白痴”

    根据沃尔夫叙述的一次默多克和特朗普的电话,钦佩不是相互的。通电内容是关于总统与与硅谷高管们的会面。

    书中写道:“默多克建议采取开明的态度处理H-1B签证,该签证能让美国挑选移民,可能很难与特朗普建立一面墙、关闭边境的承诺一致。但是特朗普看上去并不在意,还向默多克保证‘我们会搞定的’。‘真是个白痴,’默多克放下电话,耸耸肩说。”

    11. 弗林知道与俄罗斯的关系“是一个问题”

    书中称,美国前国家安全顾问迈克尔·弗林(Michael·Flynn)知道因演讲从莫斯科获得钱财可能会给他带来困扰。

    沃尔夫写道,选举之前,弗林“已经被朋友告知从俄罗斯人那里因演讲拿45000美元不是一个好主意。”

    弗林已经被司法部特别检察官起诉。

    Donald Trump's nuclear button is way bigger than yours
    http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/03/politics/trump-size-matters-analysis/index.html

    Washington (CNN) Size matters.

    If you were looking for a two-word slogan to describe Donald Trump's life, that would be a fitting one. In everything -- from the size of his buildings to the size of his genitals to the size of his nuclear arsenal, Trump is totally and completely obsessed with being the biggest and the best.
    Witness his tweet Tuesday night directed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un:
    "North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

    The red button on the Resolute desk is to call for the valet, not to start a war. See how small it is. :p:D

    Years before he could boast about the size of his nuclear button, Donald Trump got his kicks by having sex with his friends’ wives.

    Or at least that is the claim being made in what some sceptics are now calling “the tell-all book that Trump’s post-truth presidency deserves.”

    After the “pussy-grabbing” tape and accusations of sexual misconduct from 19 women, Mr Trump must now face Fire and Fury, the warts and more warts book by “controversial” US journalist Michael Wolff.

    Amid allegations covering everything from Russia to Ivanka’s jokes about her father’s hair, comes Mr Wolff’s assertion that once upon a time “Trump liked to say that one of the things that made life worth living was getting your friends’ wives into bed”.

    “In pursuing a friend’s wife,” Wolff wrote, “he would try to persuade the wife that her husband was perhaps not what she thought.

    “Then he’d have his secretary ask the friend into his office; once the friend arrived, Trump would engage in what was, for him, more or less constant sexual banter.

    “‘Do you still like having sex with your wife? How often? You must have had a better f*** than your wife? Tell me about it. I have girls coming in from Los Angeles at three o’clock. We can go upstairs and have a great time. I promise ...’

    “All the while, Trump would have his friend’s wife on the speakerphone, listening in.”

    For good measure, Wolff adds that one of the President’s friends described him as having a lot in common with Bill Clinton, “Except that Clinton had a respectable front and Trump did not”.

    Which just leaves one little question: is it true?

    Wolff and his friends, of course, say it is. With a surprisingly small dash of journalistic cunning, they say, the writer was able to get inside probably the most chaotic presidency in decades.

    Because according to New York magazine, one of the first to publish extracts of the book, the Trump administration was too inexperienced to impose limits on what Wolff could see and report.

    “There were no ground rules placed on his access, and he was required to make no promises about how he would report on what he witnessed,” the magazine said.

    So, Wolff said, after Trump’s inauguration he was able to take up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing”.

    The book, he added, was based on more than 200 interviews with current and former Trump confidants and staff.

    Which may of course have been his first problem.

    Political journalist Benjy Sarlin of NBC News was among the first to point out: “One problem with all insider accounts of Trump is that many of his insiders have a similar take on truth to Trump. It adds a gigantic grain of salt.”

    Although, arguably, the first person to point out Wolff’s problem was Wolff himself.

    In his book’s introduction, he wrote: “Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue.

    “Those conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book.

    “Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them.

    “In other instances I have, through a consistency in accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true.”

    No one has yet addressed the alleged seduction of other men’s wives, but the book is attracting a steadily growing number of denials – despite still being five days away from going on sale.

    Trump himself appears to have got his lawyers to issue cease-and-desist notices to the book’s publisher, warning of possible libel action against Wolff, and to former presidential adviser Steve Bannon, accusing him of breaching a confidentiality agreement.

    The President has also issued a statement, apparently in response to what Mr Bannon was quoted as saying in the book about a “treasonous” meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer.

    “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” said Mr Trump. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders backed her boss up by calling Wolff’s book “trashy tabloid fiction filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House”.

    Tony Blair, the “pretty straight sort of guy” himself, also popped up on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday, denying the details of his own guest appearance in the book.

    Wolff had said the former Prime Minister had gone to the White House in February 2017 “angling” for a Middle East adviser job. Mr Blair said this was “complete fabrication, from beginning to end”.

    The President’s billionaire chum Thomas Barrack Jr has denied ever telling a friend that Trump is “not only crazy [but] stupid”. Ex-White House adviser Katie Walsh has disputed a comment attributed to her in the book that dealing with Trump was “like trying to figure out what a child wants”.

    And they are hardly the first to question Wolff’s ability to quote accurately.

    Wolff, 64, has written for a string of prestigious publications and won the National Magazine Award for commentary in 2002 and 2004.

    But along the way questions have been raised about whether what he says is always 100 per cent accurate. Sometimes Wolff himself appears to have fuelled the questioning.

    In his first best-seller Burn Rate, about his time as a 1990s internet entrepreneur, he confessed to stalling bankers by making up a story about his father having open-heart surgery.

    “How many fairly grievous lies had I told?” he wrote. “How many moral lapses had I committed? How many ethical breaches had I fallen into?

    “Like many another financial conniver, I was in a short-term mode.”

    And after the book was published, it was reported that a dozen people disputed the way they were quoted in it.

    Wolff, though, got a job writing a media column at New York magazine. Pretty soon book editor Judith Regan was disputing nearly every line of the column Wolff wrote about her, saying she hadn’t spoken to him in 30 years.

    Other complaints about misquoting followed.

    Now The Washington Post is drawing its readers’ attention to a New Republic profile of Wolff, written in 2004 when he had just won his first National Magazine Award.

    In it, the New Republic writer Michelle Cottle stated, pretty bluntly: “Much to the annoyance of Wolff’s critics, the scenes in his columns aren’t recreated so much as created – springing from Wolff’s imagination rather than from actual knowledge of events.

    “Even Wolff acknowledges that conventional reporting isn’t his bag. Rather, he absorbs the atmosphere and gossip swirling around him at cocktail parties, on the street, and especially during those long lunches at Michael’s.”

    Intriguingly, given what the Fire and Fury author now says about his semi-permanent seat on the West Wing couch, Cottle quoted an editor who has worked with Wolff as saying: “His great gift is the appearance of intimate access. He is adroit at making the reader think that he has spent hours and days with his subject, when in fact he may have spent no time at all.”

    He was never dull though.

    Cottle quoted the qualified admiration of one of Wolff’s former colleagues.

    “He did get a lot of things majorly wrong,” the ex-colleague said, “But he never was just pedestrian.

    “You have to admire his balls.”

    The President, of course, is unlikely to be so forgiving.

    As to whether or not others believe the stuff about sleeping with the wives of friends: perhaps it’s a fair bet to say that those who hate Mr Trump will decide it’s true, and his base will instantly dismiss it as fake news.
