Author Michael Wolff appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Thursday to talk about his controversial White House tell-all book, Fire and Fury. It did not go well.

The show's hosts specifically took issue with Wolff saying in interviews that if read closely, the book reveals President Trump is having an affair — and whom he is conducting it with.

Asked by Politico about the rumor, Haley fiercely denied it, calling it "disgusting."
