A former White House aide has revealed that President Donald Trump ate a piece of paper after a meeting with lawyer Michael Cohen, in what she believed was an effort to destroy sensitive information, The Washington Post reports.
Omarosa Manigault Newman has said she walked in as the president put a note in his mouth before chewing and swallowing the paper.
Manigault Newman made the disturbing revelation in her new book—Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House—Newman.
According to an excerpt of the book obtained by The Washington Post, Newman recalls:
“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.”
Manigault also claimed this week that she secretly recorded the president and said when the tapes are released, it will be “pussygate” all over again.
