Fox News host Jeanine Pirro had lunch with President Trump on Wednesday and the topic of conversation was said to be a book that would serve as a counter to “Fire and Fury,” the discredited book from author Michael Wolff.
West Wing advisers are calling the potential project “No Fire, No Fury,” according to The News York Times.

Citing the prerequisite anonymous sources, The Times reported that Trump agreed to be interviewed for the book, saying he has “seethed” for weeks about the depiction of himself in Wolff’s book.
Seething that is said to have included pursuing legal options.

Pirro, a staunch defender of the president, has a book set to come out in June, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals,” and she said in a statement provided by Fox News to the paper that it will not be a response to Wolff’s book.
“My upcoming book is not a direct response to ‘Fire and Fury.’ The title on Amazon always has been and continues to be ‘Liars, Leakers and Liberals’ and I plan to cover all of them,” she said in the statement.
The Times said Pirro, who has had a friendly relationship with Trump since the 1980s, is believed to have pitched a book to the president over lunch, “as a plum opportunity to present a counterpoint to Mr. Wolff.”
The former district attorney is said to have also discussed the idea of a counter to “Fire and Fury” with friends.
