Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’ sequel due out in June

The author whose incendiary first book on the Trump administration prompted the president to rip him as “deranged,” will release a sequel to the bestseller next month.

“Siege,” the follow-up to Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” follows the administration from its second year to the release of the Mueller report in April, and will focus on President Trump’s “volatile” and “erratic” behavior, according to publisher Henry Holt.

It will be released June 4, the publisher said on its website, first reported by Axios.

“Fire and Fury” — which tracked the Trump campaign and first year in office — drew controversy from GOPers and Dems alike when it was published last year.

President Trump called Wolff a “mentally deranged” man who “knowingly writes false information,” with the White House claiming the accounts were “fiction.”

And the president also accused one “Fire and Fury” source, former White House adviser Steve Bannon, of having “lost his mind” over quotes his former adviser gave Wolff regarding his son, Donald Trump Jr.

Critics in the media meanwhile, including Bloomberg View columnist Joe Nocera and journalist-turned-Obama auto czar Steven Rattner, called into question Wolff’s track record with getting the facts right.

Despite scrutiny over his past reporting, 150 sources spoke to Wolff for the newest installment, the publisher noted.
