In the year since President Trump took office, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of unfounded claims thrown out against him. The left-wing press has shown its willing to run with any negative story about Trump, no matter how small or how little evidence there is.
The prime example is the infamous Russia dossier, which made incredibly outlandish and unsourced claims, yet was discussed for months by the media as if it was true. Even to this day, many folks believe the lies or that they might be true thanks to the way the media deliberately twisted the narrative to make the implications seem possible. While Trump is slandered by the media daily by “anonymous sources,” there’s a new claim floating around they may just be the most bizarre one yet.
As reported at the Daily Mail, a new book is claiming that Trump is so paranoid he may be covertly assassinated, that he’s taken to eating McDonald’s to avoid being poisoned.
In the book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” author Michael Wolff claims that one of the reasons Trump prefers fast food is that no one knows he is coming to the establishment, therefore the food is safe from would-be assassins lacing it with poison.
The book claims that when Trump first entered the White House, the president gave a very specific order that the housekeeping staff keeps their hands off everything in his room, “especially his toothbrush.” Which is hardly a paranoid thing to ask of one’s housekeepers, but this guy’s got to sell his book.
Wolff gives one supposed example where the president reprimanded the housekeepers for picking one of his shirts up off the floor, saying, “If my shirt is on the floor, it’s because I want it on the floor.” But wait, there’s “more!”
Trump has also informed the cleaning staff that he’ll tell them when he wants his bedding cleaned, and then when that time arrives, he apparently strips the bed down himself. Shocking!
The president, stunningly, locks his bedroom door, and for the first time since the adulterous years of JFK’s presidency, he has sleeping quarters separate from his wife.
Wolff’s book claims that in the infancy of his presidency, if he wasn’t eating with chief strategist Steve Bannon at 6:30pm, he’d lock himself away in his room, where he’d binge on cheeseburgers while watching 3 televisions.
Many of the early excerpts of the book being printed throughout the media are unsourced, but there’s supposedly plenty of juicy “sourced” information to be found in the tome.
Wolff says that the content of the book to 18 months to piece together from over 200 interviews with former staff and insiders. Thus far, what’s been released is hardly shocking. It’s interesting how these mild peculiarities, assuming they’re true, are being used to paint Trump as a paranoid lunatic, yet someone like JFK’s rather transparent man-whoring and drug abuse is conveniently overlooked.
The media’s sure to love and play up the claims made in the book once it’s released, as they love making mountains out of mole-hills, especially ones that may not even exist in the first place.
