More shocking revelations have come out from Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, a new book by Michael Wolff that is absolutely explosive in its reporting on how Donald Trump allegedly runs his life and presidency.

Among the subjects Fire and Fury tackles, the book takes a dive into the POTUS' relationship with Melania Trump, or rather, lack thereof. Wolff writes that the pair go days without speaking, and lived in Trump Tower together without even seeing each other.

"Donald Trump's marriage was perplexing to almost everybody around him—or it was, anyway, for those without private jets and many homes. He and Melania spent relatively little time together. They could go days at a time without contact, even when they were both in Trump Tower."

He also writes that, "Often she did not know where he was, or take much notice of that fact. Her husband moved between residences as he would move between rooms."

The book also dives into the way Trump speaks about Melania and views her role in their marriage: that of a Trophy Wife.

"He spoke of Melania frequently when she wasn’t there. He admired her looks—often, awkwardly for her, in the presence of others. She was, he told people proudly and without irony, a 'trophy wife.' And while he may not have quite shared his life with her, he gladly shared the spoils of it. 'A happy wife is a happy life,' he said, echoing a popular rich-man truism."

This has been another edition of "WTF is happening in the White House."
