Haley Denies Trump Affair Speculation By Disreputable Author

Michael Wolff, the author of “Fire and Fury,” a book riddled with everything from “sloppy copy editing to factual inaccuracies,” is claiming on the TV talk show circuit that President Donald Trump and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley are having an affair.

Unable to prove his claim, Wolff told HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that he could not put his speculation in the book, but apparently felt free enough to lob the accusation on premium cable.

Wolff went on to say that discriminating readers would be able to determine the president’s paramour by giving his book a close reading: “Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’re gonna say, ‘Bingo.’”

Readers quickly homed in on a single sentence in the runaway bestseller, which has been criticized for everything from sloppy copy editing to gross factual inaccuracies. Wolff writes, “The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future.”

Haley flatly denied Wolff’s claim.

“It’s absolutely not true,” the former South Carolina governor told Politico’s Eliana Johnson.

“I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there,” she said in an interview Thursday for POLITICO’s Women Rule podcast, referring to a flight from Washington to Long Island in late July. “He says that I’ve been talking a lot with the president in the Oval about my political future. I’ve never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him.”

“So the idea that these things come out, that’s a problem,” she said. “But it goes to a bigger issue that we need to always be conscious of: At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not.”

Wolff did not respond to requests for comment from Johnson.
