Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims in her new book “Unhinged” that she saw President Trump chewing up and swallowing a piece of paper following a meeting with then-personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
“I saw him put a note in his mouth. Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. It must have been something very, very sensitive,” she writes in “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” according to an excerpt obtained by The Washington Post on Friday.
The Post reported that another White House aide confirmed that Manigault Newman walked Cohen into the Oval Office for meetings that day with Trump. She was later reprimanded for it.
The White House fired back at Manigault Newman in an official statement on Friday. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called her a “disgruntled former White House employee” who is “trying to profit off false attacks.”
Manigault Newman also claims in her book that Trump repeatedly used the n-word and that there are tapes from his reality-show days at NBC that would prove it.
