Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer responded to a story about first lady Melania Trump from a very controversial book that is soon to be released.
Here's the video of Sean Spicer's interview:
Spicer says that some quotes attributed to him in the book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," never happened, and that author Michael Wolff has a history of fabricating elements of his stories. He spoke to HLN's S.E. Cupp on Thursday.
"Melania Trump was the one who encouraged President Trump to run for office," he explained. "She was very supportive in this. The idea that she was crying is nonsense."
"She's been very supportive of her president — of the president, of his agenda, and of him personally," he added.
"There is no question that the accuracy of this book is definitely in question," concluded Spicer.
"Fire and Fury"
"Fire and Fury," the highly controversial book about the Trump presidency, contains the claim that Melania Trump did not want her husband to win the presidency and cried on election day when it happened.
Spicer denies the story, saying that Melania was fully supportive of her husband's presidential run. He also excoriated Stephen Bannon for his comments in the book that attacked Donald Trump Jr. for his meeting with Russians to obtain opposition research about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
