Omarosa Claims She Walked In On Trump Eating Paper In Oval Office

Can this shit get any weirder?

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/omarosa-claims-she-walked-in-on-trump-eating-paper-in-oval-office

In her forthcoming book, “Unhinged,” former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman claims that she saw President Trump chewing up a piece of paper after a meeting with his then-personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. The Washington Post got its hands on an early copy of the book and was the first to report the allegation.

In early 2017, Manigault Newman says she walked Michael Cohen, then Trump’s personal lawyer, into the Oval Office for a meeting with Trump — and saw the president chewing up a piece of paper while Cohen was leaving the office. Another White House official confirmed that Manigault Newman brought Cohen into the White House and was later rebuked for it. The two remain in contact, according to people familiar with the relationship.

“I saw him put a note in his mouth. Since Trump was ever the germophobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. It must have been something very, very sensitive,” she writes in her book.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the book is “riddled with lies and false accusations.” The Post reported that “several White House aides laughed at the assertion” that the President was caught munching on paper and “said it was not true.”

3. Given that everyone around Trump lies like breathing, I'm not sure why I should disbelieve it

based on the fact that non-Omarosa White House staffers say it's not true.

I'm not saying I believe Omarosa, but I don't disbelieve her *on the word of other Trumpists* least of all Huckster-Slanders.

Maybe like the payoff amount for selling out his country?

Xylophagia is a condition involving the consumption of paper and form of eating disorder known as pica. People who suffer from this eating disorder usually consume substances like paper, pencils, tree barks or other items made of wood. The most popular form of xylophagia is the consumption of paper, but rare type of pica may be described in the literature. Pica is an unusual craving for and ingestion of either edible or inedible substances.

15. Com'on now - who here hasn't chewed on some paper at some time in their life.



For me, it was in second grade when the red headed girl with the pigtails slipped me a note in class that said "I likes you". I was so embarrassed and...the is very important...afraid someone might find the note that I ate it...right there in class. It was a tiny little thing, a quick chew, a little saliva and boom...it was gone, never to be mentioned again.

My point is I can absolutely see Trump giving some note from Cohen the forced biodegradability treatment so there would be no possible record of it. Furthermore, I'll bet it aint the first time and Omarosa, book huckster extraordinaire, will be corroborated (at least in practice if not in specific).

lol. What an asshat (a paper eating asshat, to boot).

I would have posted it on the wall.

Of course I had a kids crush on a redhead girl from 2nd to 4th grade. Then we moved.

Always wondered...

24. "...if you have something really important...have it delivered by courier..." - Red Don, Dec. '16

President-elect Donald Trump told reporters on Saturday that messages "should be sent via courier like in the old days" to ensure security.

"It's very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I'll tell you what, no computer is safe," Trump responded when asked about the importance of cybersecurity, according to pool reporters.

"I don't care what they say, no computer is safe. I have a boy who's 10 years old, he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier," Trump reiterated.

38. She had an interview with NPR. The little bit I heard was hilarious: they actually read the thing...

...and refuted her claims of what was in it. Not fact-checking per se because how can they, but "No, what you just said was in there is not in there." At one point she said, "Girl, did you read my book?!" and the reporter said, "Yes, yes I did."

He still can make me laugh out loud and I needed it after this week.
