Omarosa Manigualt Newman’s new book titled Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House is a trouble cracker.
Even before it is released, the book is gaining headlines for the revelations disclosed in its pages.
The Daily Caller received an exclusive excerpt of the book. In the excerpt, Omarosa discusses the president’s “mental decline that could not be denied.” In the excerpt, Omarosa discusses the president’s interview with Lester Holt after the firing of former FBI director Comey.
Omarosa writes in part, “While watching the interview I realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald’s brain. His mental decline could not be denied.” She continued, “Many didn’t notice it as keenly as I did because I knew him way back when. They thought Trump was being Trump, off the cuff. But I knew something wasn’t right.”
She explains, “For the Lester Holt interview, I watched it on a small TV in the upper press room (the lower press room was built on top of the old swimming pool and turned into the briefing room) by the press secretary’s office.”
She reveals, “Throughout this erratic and contradictory interview, I kept thinking, ‘Oh no! Oh no! This is bad!” She continued, “Donald rambled. He spoke gibberish. He contradicted himself from one sentence to the next.”
She went on, Hope [Hicks, then communications director] had gone over the briefing with him a dozen times hitting the key point that he had fired Comey based on the recommendation by the DOJ which the vice president and other surrogates had been reinforcing for days.”
Of course, despite the preparation of his staff, Trump told Lester Holt that he was thinking of the Russia investigation when he fired Comey, undercutting the carefully crafted administration explanation of the firing.
