Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Michael Wolff: On second thought, I don't know if Trump was having an affair with Nikki Haley”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Last month, author Michael Wolff nearly ruined the good thing he had going by insinuating, absent any evidence, that Nikki Haley was having an affair with President Trump. At the Washington Post, Erik Wemple points out Wolff has finally backed off that claim:

After several minutes of interrogation about a central drama surrounding his new book, Michael Wolff said this: “I will just clean this up. . . . I do not know if the president is having an affair.” Those comments came in an interview Thursday with Twan Huys of the Dutch TV show “College Tour.”…

The “College Tour” interview, however, which hasn’t yet aired, appeared to discomfit the author. Again and again, Huys pushed Wolff to reconcile how his multimedia stunt — using the book and the Maher interview to cook up an allegation — could be reconciled with journalism class. Asked if he regretted his remark on Maher’s show, Wolff said, “I did not make any remark. I only said that I believe the president, in all likelihood, is involved with someone. And that reflects the gossip in the White House and whether true or not, I don’t know, which is why it is not in the book.”

An audience member stated that “implying” that a woman is having an affair wounds her reputation. To which Wolff replied, “Let me say this as directly as I can. Let’s go right through anybody’s thick skull. I did not — I do not know who Donald Trump is having an affair with, okay?”

Wolff is once again acting as if he isn’t the person who started this rumor, but he suggested it was true on Real Time with Bill Maher [NSFW language warning]:
