Something going on in Donald's brain

Omarosa's book:

Omarosa Manigault-Newman is about to rip the lid off what she deems the deteriorating mental condition of President Trump in her bombshell new book.

In an exclusive excerpt obtained by DailyMail.com, Omarosa, 44, who first met Trump when she appeared on The Apprentice and later became an assistant to the president, tells of the dread she felt while watching Trump's interview with Lester Holt last May.

'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 writes in Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.

In an exclusive excerpt of her new book, Omarosa, who first met Trump when she appeared on The Apprentice and later became the president's Director of African-American Outreach, tells of her dread while watching Trump's interview with Lester Holt last May

'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,' Omarosa writes. 'But I knew something wasn't right'

Omarosa was beside herself when the president contradicted the White House party line that FBI head James Comey was fired based on the recommendation by the Department of Justice.

'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 writes.

'Throughout this erratic and contradictory interview, I kept thinking, 'Oh no! Oh no! This is bad!

'Donald rambled. He spoke gibberish. He contradicted himself from one sentence to the next.

'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.'


We know this is total nonsense because Trump had been speaking gibberish during the entire campaign.

Trump has lived by the tabloid, reality show stab-in-the-back ethos for years. He deserves this.
