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.

Published

on

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.

Right-wing activists call on Mitch McConnell to stop blocking election security bills

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing renewed pressure to take up election security legislation, from a pair of unlikely sources: Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon.

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.
