Trump's McDonald's binges and screaming fits revealed in new book

Trump's McDonald's binges and screaming fits revealed in new book

According to Lewandowski and Bossie, Trump lost his temper over everything from unsolicited advice given by campaign aides to hiccups in the campaign schedule.

As Trump strutted his stuff in his signature campaign rallies across the country, his team was hard at work ensuring that fast food arrived at his plane at the flawless time for his departure, according to an advance copy of the book obtained by The Washington Post (paywall).

The order has been detailed in a new book by former campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, titled Let Trump Be Trump.

The authors wrote, "It was a mistake she would never make again".

But on Meet The Press on Sunday morning, the book's co-author, David Bossie, asserted that the voice featured in the video is clearly Trump.

And Lewandowski shares an episode in which he says he was so sick that he fell asleep on the campaign plane, only to be awakened by Trump, saying, "Corey, if you can't take it, we'll get somebody else". According to The Washington Post, which obtained an advanced copy of the tell-all, a typical dinner for Trump on the campaign trail consisted of "two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted".

One of Hicks's jobs was to make sure that Trump's suits were pressed when they flew on his plane. The tape is the one in which Trump was videoed saying "I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet, just kiss".

Lewandowski said a campaign staffer named Sam Nunberg was punished by being left behind at one of the fast-food restaurants. "I'll go on TV anytime I g-dam f-ing want and you won't say another f-ing word about me!"

A memoir by two former Trump 2016 officials paints then-candidate Trump as a hot-tempered, screaming tyrant with a bottomless appetite for junk food, said The Washington Post on Saturday. "I'm going to win".

Trump reportedly told a senator and an adviser earlier this year that he believes the tape, which came to light weeks before the 2016 presidential election, might not be authentic. "Tone it down? I wanna turn it up!".

"I don't even know why that's of interest today. I don't think you can represent the country properly if you're not a healthy person", said Trump, who is 71.

Lewandowski is particularly effusive in his gushing praise for his former boss, the Post said, calling the unhinged helicopter outburst, "one of the greatest takedowns in the history of the world".
