Trump Made Hope Hicks Steam His Pants While He Was Wearing Them

Although the authors of Let Trump Be Trump seem to take pains to paint a "largely admiring portrait" of Trump, they still reveal details that illustrate how "a cast of mostly neophyte political aides learn on the fly and ultimately accept Trump's propensity to go angrily off message". Among the revelations included are some details about Trump's not so secret affinity for fast food. "When you're running for president, I think you have an obligation to be healthy".

-Trump loves his fast food: "On Trump Force One there were four major food groups: McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke", the authors write.

The now-president's fixation on television is also evident in Bossie and Lewandowski's book, which describes Trump as screaming, "I'll go on TV anytime I goddam f*cking want and you won't say another f*cking word about me!" following chairman Paul Manafort's suggestion that he stop appearing on the Sunday shows.

Another freakish detail from the book describes how Hope Hicks, now the White House Communications Director, was tasked with steaming Trump's suit and trousers - while he was wearing them.

Trump apparently added: 'I'm a pro at life.

"His wrath is never intended as any personal offence, but sometimes it can be hard not to take it that way". I've been around a time or two. "The mode that he switches into when things aren't going his way can feel like an all-out assault".

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".

But through the entire campaign, Trump's bluster and undying confidence continued beyond the rallies and interviews and into campaign meetings.

It's not just fast food the United States president has a hankering for, the Washington Post reports the plane's cupboards were stacked with Vienna Fingers, potato chips, pretzels and many packages of Oreos because Mr Trump, a renowned germaphobe, would not eat from a previously opened package. "But I'm not going to lose". Her unique relationship with Trump as part of his inner circle makes her of interest to investigators probing whether the campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, an allegation she has previously denied.
