Here are 5 bonkers tales about Trump that Omarosa claims happened – taken from her tell-all book

Published

on

The tell-all book by former Donald Trump associate Omarosa Manigault contains a collection of claims that boggle the mind — yet remain plausible considering what Americans have come to learn about the former businessman who was voted into the Oval Office in 2016, reports The Daily Beast.

According to the Beast’s Gideon Resnick, Omarosa claims in her book that Trump wanted to use his ghostwritten “Art of the Deal” instead of a Bible for his swearing-in — and that is just the tip of the Trump narcissism iceberg.

Among Omarosa’s anecdotes in her book, ‘Unhinged,’ due out on Tuesday:

  • Trump and his swearing in.

“He asked me, ‘Omarosa, what do you think about me getting sworn in on “The Art of the Deal?”’ Omarosa recalls in the book.

“I said, ‘Instead of the Bible?’” she said she replied, before adding that Trump attempted to make his case by boasting his book was a “bestseller.”

“It’s the greatest business book of all time. It’s how I’m going to make great deals for the country. Just think how many copies I’d sell—maybe a commemorative inauguration copy?!” Trump reportedly replied.

  • Talking about sex in front of daughter Ivanka.

According to Manigualt, former Kiss frontman Gene Simmons leered and make sexual comments about Ivanka in front of Trump during an Apprentice taping. And Trump seemed to encourage him.

“During one long break, Gene [Simmons] and Donald engaged in language so profane, it would have raised eyebrows in prison,” Omarosa wrote. “Donald asked Gene, ‘What do you think of Ivanka? How’s she doing?’ ”

“What followed was a vile exchange, right in front of Ivanka, with Gene Simmons talking about her in a room full of people. While leering openly at her breasts, he said, ‘She’s a very, very sexy, desirable young woman who I’m looking forward to getting to know much better if you know what I mean, with all due respect.’”

According to Manigualt, Ivanka protested to her dad but to no avail.

“Everyone else in the room was shocked, not by Gene’s language (we knew he was a disgusting pig), but by Donald’s obvious delight in hearing it. He had complete control of the boardroom. He could have shut it down at any point. But he didn’t,” she recalled.

  • Trump freaked out when the Apprentice lost an Emmy to “The Great Race.”

According to Omarosa, Trump stormed out of the TV awards ceremony with wife Melania in tow, and snarled on his way out.

“I saw him briefly as he was walking up the aisle to leave the auditorium, and he was livid. ‘We were robbed! They cheated us!’ he said in full voice. ‘I’m so pissed, Omarosa. They cheated us!’ and then he was gone,” she wrote.

  • Trump and staffers were ecstatic when presidential opponent Hillary Clinton fell ill during the campaign.

“Lara [Trump] and the others said things like ‘She’s sick! She’s not going to to make it to election night! She’s sick!’” Omarosa described.

“They were gleeful that Clinton appeared to be gravely ill. Many people in Trumpworld believed that she was concealing a serious neurological medical condition — Parkinson’s was mentioned often. They thought that her untreated pneumonia might have been the cause of her collapse, but if you truly had pneumonia, why would you go visit your infant granddaughter? Many suspected there was an underlying condition as well,” she added.

  • Trump called his eldest son, Donald Trumpo Jr. a “f*ck-up.”

The president was infuriated when Don Jr. released details about his infamous meeting with Russians at Trump Tower in 2016.

“He is such a fuckup. He screwed up again, but this time, he’s screwing us all, big-time!” Trump reportedly raged.

Buffalo has a long history of protecting cops from criminal charges: report

Published

on

On Saturday, The Daily Beast documented the recent history of use of force in the Buffalo Police Department, which is reeling from controversy as two officers face assault charges for shoving a 75-year-old protester to the ground.

"As shocking as this all may be to outsiders, the shoving of demonstrator Martin Gugino and the defiant response of officers to an effort to discipline two of their own is indicative of the state of police affairs in Buffalo," wrote Jim Heaney. "Has been for a long time, not that you have to go back too far to find other episodes of brutality that have been captured on video."

Commenters on Twitter expressed both contempt and disgust for Buffalo firefighters and police officers who turned out in front of Buffalo City Court to support two suspended police officers with applause and cheering.

Moments after officers Aaron Torglaski and Robert McCabe were charged with second-degree assault and then released without having to post bail, they were greeted as heroes outside the courthouse.

After a video was posted showing the celebration, commenters on Twitter vented at cops and firefighters for defending the two officers who assaulted the 75-year-old man who had to be rushed to a hospital after they shoved him to the ground where he sustained a head injury.

Donald Trump’s lurch toward fascism is backfiring spectacularly

Published

on

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

During the 2016 campaign, as Donald Trump railed against "Mexican rapists" and other "criminal aliens," pollsters found that the share of Americans who said that immigrants worked hard and made a positive contribution to our society increased significantly, and noticed a similar decline in the share who said they take citizens' jobs and burden our social safety net. After Trump was elected and began pursuing his Muslim ban, the share of respondents who held a positive view of Islam also increased pretty dramatically. I'm not aware of any polling of the general public about transgender troops serving in the military before Trump decided to discharge them, but Gallup found that 71 percent of respondents opposed his position after he did.
