An excerpt of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” obtained by MSNBC contained the anecdote.

“Trump conceived an early, obsessive antipathy for Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates,” the book reads. “She was, he steamed, ‘such a c---.’”

One of Trump’s first actions as president was firing Yates after she refused to have the Justice Department uphold his initial travel ban that blocked people from seven majority-Muslim countries.

Yates has since been an outspoken critic of Trump, condemning his attacks on the FBI and Justice Department. She tweeted Tuesday that Trump calling Justice Department officials “deep state” and suggesting they look into his political opponents is “beyond abnormal” and “dangerous.”

The new book, which will be published next week, contained quotes and interviews from people close to Trump, including numerous bombshell accounts about the campaign and presidency.
