[Real Time with Bill Maher via People] Author Michael Wolff made several headline-making accusations about President Donald Trump in his bestselling bombshell book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
But now he’s claiming there’s one piece of gossip that wasn’t in his book — that Trump is currently having an affair.
“There is something in the book that I was absolutely sure of but it was so incendiary that I just didn’t have the ultimate proof,” Wolf explained on Friday’s Real Time with Bill Maher about Trump’s alleged indiscretion, later referencing the piece of evidence that exposed former President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky in the ’90s. “I didn’t have the blue dress.”
Maher, 62, pressed for details, asking, “It’s somebody [Trump is] f—— now?”
“It is. And it’s… you just have to read between the lines,” Wolff said, adding that the White House has “back doors” that allow visitors to enter without being noticed. “It’s toward the end of the book. You just have to… you’ll know it. Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’re going to say, ‘Bingo.’ ”

[Optional] What proportion of Wolff’s claims do you think are fact/fiction (e.g. 50/50)? Please keep your comments civil.
research boy says
Ha-ha! Now Wolff is claiming he left this bombshell out of the book because he didn’t have “proof”? As if he had “proof” for anything else in the book!
Back door woman: Marilyn Monroe (I mean, while we’re making stuff up, why not a classic?)
Truth percentage: 20%, if Wolff is lucky. I mean, even Hillary Clinton-cheerleading SNL made fun of him for this.
“Joe Scarborough”: Is [this] true?
“Wolff” (takes pause) Sure.
All I can say is ewwwww, Trump is repulsive, who would want to sleep with this man??? And it’s not because of his age, there are many very handsome and fit 71 year olds.
I am sure he is having an affair, Melania is probably having one too. It’s pretty obvious they do not have a good marriage.
Book 70% true, 30% here say.
I’m saying Omarosa that would be that would be scandalous!
Optional: 70% fiction 30% truth
I’d guess Hope Hicks. She comes up a lot in the book, and she looks a lot like Melania.
And it’s really suspicious that a 29-year-old would be director of communications. (Who is also beautiful – what a coincidence.)
Farrah Abraham posted a recent picture at mar a lago on her ig
25% fact, 75% fiction
Well, if he is having an affair, we know that Marilyn Monroe and Mary Jo Kopechne are out of the picture. Angie Dickinson is too old. Barbra Streisand and all of the rest of Bill’s mistresses are a bit long in the tooth. Whoever could it be?
Joined, just to take a wild guess!! Paula White.
With Trump’s every BM being analyzed and mis-reported by the media and the establishment in DC, I highly doubt he could get away with an affair. Of course if he is having an affair, it’s probably a kinky one with Hillary and Huma. Or maybe Rosie has given in to his charm, and is coming through the back door.
Since Wolff basically stated that the book is made up or based on his interpretation of things, I imagine it’s probably 85% fiction and 15% accurate.
Ew, whoever this is, gross!
I’m guessing Kellyanne Conway
I think that his book is probably 90% accurate. He made them all think he was an insider and friend, and they are all backstabbers.
Hope Hicks, it’s pretty common knowledge.
I would say 80-85% fact.
Hope Hicks ?
I think his book is 100% FACT. Wolff was allowed access inside the White House to everything and everyone. Not one person quoted in the book has directly denied anything. Mueller’s investigation will only confirm it all. I love Bill Maher.
Back Door Woman: Popular guess is either Nikki Haley or Hope Hicks. I’d guess both, but honestly…I don’t know how he could be satisfying even ONE of them, let alone two.
Sounds like a ploy to sell more copies of the book imho
If it’s Farrah Abraham (“back door teen mom”) I’m gonna laugh for days. They’d be perfect for each other.
Having read the book it’s really hard to say what percentage is 100% true and what percent is based on ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’ but I’m going to say 80/20. What I do believe that Michael Wolf fully intended to write one book but when he saw the total disarray of the transition it became another.
The supposed affair I’d put in the 20% category; no doubt he and Melania were having affairs before the election but I don’t think so now. But if I had to guess it would be Hope…
Hope Hicks would seem to be the likeliest candidate.
No clue since I haven’t read the book yet but probably someone young and blond. – an Ivanka clone. As far as the book, I believe that it’s probably close to 100% factual. trump is disgusting – always has been, always will be.
Well at least Melania will be happy she doesn’t have to perform that part of the ‘contract’ …ewwww… I have to go vomit now…
I Am PunkA says
I’d say it is probably 80% Truth, 20% fiction. The difficulty is knowing which is which.
Back Door Woman: No idea, but I’d guess Wolf said that just to increase book sales.
this evangelist-woman, don’t know her name.
Stevie Nicks…? Common she’s too old and about 80 lbs above his limit.
Hope Hicks. The clue in the book is that “she is nice but knows nothing about anything”
BTW – 95% is true – dumb as they are – they believed Mike Wolff when he said Trump had approved the book (without checking with Trump)
Good lord. If Stevie were sleeping with that pig I’d never forgive her.
Nicki Haley ,
Hope Hicks. Mostly fact, at least 80%.
Wolff even prints in the beginning of the book that the contents of his book are his BELIEFS…..NOT PROVABLE FACT.
For God’s sake, ANYONE can do that. What a bunch of crap not to be believed.
All of it.
How sure can he be that this going on if he doesn’t have the ultimate proof?
A wealthy and powerful man having an affair? A president having an affair? Shocked; I am not. I have no idea who it is.
Caroline Kennedy, keeping up the family tradition.
Bullsh*t…he is trying to stay relevant…If this were true..he would have put it in the book for more sales.
VERY good point!!!
He is obviously having an affair with Michael Wolff. No wonder Trump sticks to the back door (tee hee) as he must be so embarrassed to be with Doctor Evil’s Mini Me.
Optional: fictional 95%. He obviously has Trump’s name, age and present place of abode correct.
Yes! Wolff said “back door in the white house”
Hope Hicks, aka the youngest White House Communications Director ever! She looks quite a bit like Marla Maples at a similar age. Little has been said or made of the work she’s actually done, but she seems to have plenty of access to Trump.
Optional: It’s a tawdry, tabloid book. So like the National Enquirer, Trump’s favorite news magazine, 10% true?
Probably 0% are fact. This book has gotten a bad reputation for being loaded with inaccuracies. The one about the back door is so inaccurate (no “ultimate proof”), he can’t even put it in the book? Not buying it. Wolff is laughing about this fiction all the way to the bank. Enjoying the press tour and notoriety.
You and I are the only one with clear eyes. Apparently.
Back door woman: Hope Hicks. Wolfe had referred to her as “being like his daughter. A daughter lives and has access to her father’s house. Optional: 80% is true. 20% fictional.
The book was bull*. So is this story. Wolff will say or do anything for a buck.
Really? It’s okay for him to not be perfect, you know.
Yeah, so we’re supposed to believe him now. Right, Mr. Wolff.
I agree, I don’t believe any of it.
More_Cowbell, I agree. His book sales have fallen way off and he’s desperate to sell more.
60%. 100% of the things he has on tape, and probably 50% of the rest.
High Steppa says
Nikki Haley is my guess. I think it’s about 30% fact and 70% fiction. Wolff has already admitted the book is a “version of the events I believe to be true” in the book’s forward. Nothing about Trump surprises me but on the flip side, nothing anyone may try to make up about Trump surprises me.
Been reading rumors about Hope Hicks for a year now.
