Lewandowski Book On Campaign Reveals Weird Habits, Obscene Tantrums, And Lots And Lots Of Fast Food

The Washington Post reports:

Elton John blares so loudly on Donald Trump’s campaign plane that staffers can’t hear themselves think. Press secretary Hope Hicks uses a steamer to press Trump’s pants — while he is still wearing them. Trump screams at his top aides, who are subjected to ­expletive-filled tirades in which they get their “face ripped off.”

And Trump’s appetite seems to know no bounds when it comes to McDonald’s, with a dinner order consisting of “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

The scenes are among the most surreal passages in a forthcoming book chronicling Trump’s path to the presidency co-written by Corey Lewandowski, who was fired as Trump’s campaign manager, and David Bossie, another top aide. The book, “Let Trump Be Trump,” paints a portrait of a campaign with an untested candidate and staff rocketing from crisis to crisis, in which Lewandowski and a cast of mostly neophyte political aides learn on the fly and ultimately accept Trump’s propensity to go angrily off message.

The New York Daily News reports:

Candidate Trump allegedly flew into a rage on a helicopter, ordering the pilot to drop to lower altitude so he could call Manafort and give him a tongue lashing. “Did you say I shouldn’t be on TV on Sunday? I’ll go on TV anytime I goddamn fucking want and you won’t say another fucking word about me!” Trump hollered, according to Lewandowski.

The novelty of working on “Making America Great Again” wore off for some beleaguered underlings. “Sooner or later, everybody who works for Donald Trump will see a side of him that makes you wonder why you took a job with him in the first place,” the writers explain.

Also chronicled are the moments after press secretary Hope Hicks got the Oct. 7, 2016 call from a reporter asking about the infamous “Access Hollywood” interview. Trump read a transcript of the “grab them by the pussy” clip and said, “That doesn’t sound like something I would say,” the book claims, and the campaign hastily decided to brand the banter “locker room talk.”

Slate reports:

It isn’t just fast food. It seems Trump loves all kinds of snacks and the campaign plane’s cupboards were filled with “Vienna Fingers, potato chips, pretzels, and many packages of Oreos.” Trump’s well-known germophobia means he won’t eat from a cookie packet that has already been opened.

After the Access Hollywood tape came out, Reince Priebus, the Republican chairman, warned that “people are dropping like flies.”

Priebus allegedly told Trump that there were only two possible outcomes: “lose the biggest electoral landslide in American history” or drop out. “First of all,” Trump allegedly said. “I’m going to win. And second, if the Republican Party is going to run away from me, then I will take you all down with me. But I’m not going to lose.”

      • Chucktech

        I read that Trump is most annoyed that the chefs at the White House can’t do a Big Mac the way Mickey D’s does. How utterly pathetic.

        • Bluto

          I bet they could but self respect prevents them from do so.

          • McSwagg

            They’d have to start with “fake food” ingredients instead of real food. Therein lies the problem.

        • Dazzer

          The White House chefs probably don’t spit in his food as much as the Maccy D’s staff do

          • doninkansas

            Wanna bet?

      • David Walker

        That’s why the reports about the white house being infested with bugs and vermin, while metaphorically correct, actually refers to one of the kitchen help leaving their cage doors open…however briefly. The fucking moron ordered his chefs to make the burgers taste more like Micky D’s, and they discovered rat and mouse meat make an acceptable substitute and deep fried ants add flavor.

  • vorpal

    WH staffer job perk: Xanax and propranolol post-meal mints.

  • Gerry Fisher

    My favorite part was the more detailed description of how former model Hope Hicks steamed the candidate’s suit as he’s wearing it. After steaming the jacket, she sat in a chair in front of him and steamed his pants. If it were back lit and shown behind a sheet, it would look like a gag from an Austin Powers movie.

    Another tidbit: a staffer’s special order McDonald’s burger was taking too long, so Trump ordered his entourage to leave the guy at the restaurant. They abandoned him there.

    • liondon#iamnotatraitor

      Is that job up the with there with assistant scullery maid.

    • crewman

      It’s also interesting that his first reaction to the Access Hollywood tapes was, “That doesn’t sound like something I would say.” If I heard read that transcript being attributed to me, I would say something much stronger, like, “There’s no way in hell I ever said something like that. This is obviously a hoax or a fraud.”

      • swimboy

        Exactly. In this case, “That doesn’t sound like something I would say” really means “That’s sounds exactly like something I would say, but I just don’t remember saying it.”

    • John30013

      The part I don’t buy is the “chocolate malted”. AFAIK McDonald’s doesn’t offer those. I wonder how much of this book is just made-up shit by Lewandowski.

      • David Walker

        I think there are several descriptions for that, malted being one of them, whether the extra added ingredient is included or not. In New Hampshire in 1969, I discovered that I had to order a frappe…it was possible the order taker would know what a milk shake was. And, of course, through the years, milk shake became shake which became truth in advertising as less and less milk was used. So, who knows. And I can’t say as I care as long as it achieves our desired result.

        • BearEyes

          shake, milk shake, frappe, and malted are all different.
          frappe is a very thick milk milk shake with ice cream in it. Malted means malted milk powder is added to enhance the flavour.

          • David Walker

            Once upon a time and/or in areas that tend to precision. There was no different between a frappe and a milk shake (these taste buds knew the difference), and while a malted requires the special powder, they’ve been delivered to me in name only. Trust me. There was a time I could tell you what brand ice cream they used.

      • duncansdad

        A malted is a shake. It’s a NYC thing.

        • John30013

          I’ve had malted milkshakes before, but never seen them at McDonald’s. Are you saying McDonald’s sells them in the NYC area?

          • FAEN

            Look at your handsome face 😉

          • John30013

            Thanks. That was on my wedding day two years ago.

          • FAEN

            Congratulations! Very happy for you both 😊

          • duncansdad

            Did I say that?

          • John30013

            I wasn’t sure; that’s why I asked for clarification.

        • Robert Schaaf

          Yes, but not every shake is a malted, which has to be made with powdered malt.

          • Todd20036

            In DC, shakes are alcoholic!

          • Robert Schaaf

            Way to go!

      • Gerry Fisher

        Sometimes people refer to things by older names. In Boston, people will still using the term “frappes” and “malteds” when the drink technically didn’t fit that description. (Occasionally, I’ll use an expression like “drop a dime on someone” and feel very, very old.)

        • jerry

          My grandparents and the “ice box”.

            My grandmother called EVERY refrigerator “the Frigidaire”.

    • Tomcat

      Any way we can get McDonalds to take him out with bad tarter sauce?

      • another_steve

        Lol… We were apparently typing at the same time. I also mentioned in a comment the thing McDonald’s calls “tartar sauce.”

        Addictive, but deadly.

    • Chucktech

      Been showing for quite a while now…

    • Lori

      They show, but actually not as much as you would expect. Given the crap Trump eats & how little he moves around by rights he should be bigger than Chris Christie. Rumor has it that Trump takes “diet pills” and has for years.

      • another_steve

        I don’t doubt it.

        The excessive and prolonged use of diet pills might explain his mental dysfunction.

  • Gustav2

    Well, we can’t say “The emperor has no clothes” because he doesn’t take his pants off even to be pressed.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Hope it’s time “steam my pants. ” You need to rub the crotch faster and harder! The YUGE lump isn’t cuming out and we’re landing soon.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    ” Hope Hicks uses a steamer to press Trump’s pants
    — while he is still wearing them ”

    LOL omg and WTF !!

      That happens on the set of TV shows and beauty pageants. No time to take off the garment to get the wrinkles out.

      • FAEN

        And no one wants to see BLOTUS out of his clothes. EVER!!

        • Gustav2

      Problem One: There has to be a heart to attack.

  • SoCalGal20

    Oh hey, more stuff Jared didn’t disclose on his security clearance form (did he actually disclose anything?). Newsweek is now reporting:

      Jared must be exhausted running things that he’s forgotten all the illegal stuff he needed to disclose

  • Scott MB

    Ummmm..two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and chocolate malted, with all that food he shoves down his throat I doubt his “doctors” assertion he weighs 235#. I am willing to bet he is pushing over 300# easily.

    • FAEN

      His suits keep getting bigger.

      • Dazzer

        These days he has to get them made from left-over circus marquees.

        • FAEN

          LOL!

    • Chucktech

      His doctor, the Gerry Garcia clone, declared that his health was “tremendous.”

      • fuow

        Well, that’s easily explained. Somebody dropped an adjective and the adverbial ‘tremendously’ awful, or horrid got turned into ‘tremendous’.
        Or, maybe the good doctor meant ‘tremendous’ relative to a bloated water victim who’s been in a swamp for two weeks.

        • Chucktech

    Ugh, when McDonald’s is your go to meal rather than something you eat when you’re really hungry and there’s not even a dumpster to lick.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Trump watches “Super Size Me.”

    TRUMP: Hold my beer.

  • Chucktech

    Any pictures from the campaign trail in the book? If so, any pictures of you beating off? If so, I’ll consider picking up a copy.

    • Silver Badger

      Lewandowski looks like he may be well endowed. I’d certainly see for myself.

      • Mark Née Fuzz

        He must have big balls. I’ll say that much.

      • fuow

        Oh, yeah – there are some crutch shots of him striding through hallways. Makes sense – a big dick, in every since of the word.

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      Hmmm… I can’t decide if that is that something I’d want to see.

      • Silver Badger

        An impressive dick is a joy to behold. It’s not the dick’s fault it is hanging on an asshole.

    • Steverino

      Yeah, I can picture him in leather…

  • another_steve

    All of it will simply endear him more to his base – who share his eating habits, his dirty mouth and his lack of manners.

    • FAEN

      They eat more Hate Chicken than McDonald’s though.

      • another_steve

        In the summertime when I’ve been perspiring a lot and sense that I’m sodium-deprived, I occasionally treat myself to a McDonald’s Fillet-O-Fish.

        They come smothered in something vaguely resembling a tartar sauce that’s so high in salt content that my sodium level zooms right back to normal levels.

        • Bluto

          A salt lick would be healthier.

          • Steverino

            Sarah Huckabee Sanders swears by them.

        • Dazzer

          You could probably correct your sodium deficiencies simply by having a couple of whiskies with old-fashioned soda water.

        • FAEN

          I’ve never had one of those.

        • i can’t eat anything at McD’s. if there isn’t, stealing from another poster, a dumpster to lick nearby, i’ll force myself to eat a small fry, if that’s the only food there is and i’m starving.

          it makes me remember when i used to drive home from college. my school is in a restaurant mecca town. even poor grad students can eat well there, on the cheap. it spoils you. my family lived in a house in the country at that time, and the latter part of the drive? a food wasteland. the ONLY “restaurants” along the freeway were either little diners where you had to go in and sit down, or McD’s. many a drive home i would find myself thinking, “this is why i left here.”

  • gaycuckhubby

    I was just thinking as I was reading Trump’s tweets this morning about Hillary Clinton, right after he fired Comey he said it was because Comey treated Hillary unfairly. Are they even attempting to use that obvious lie any longer?

    • Chucktech

      Gawd, no. Even deplorables laughed that one right outta there.

  • BeaverTales

    Michelle Obama was all about healthy, local cuisine, and Dump is all about greasy salty or sugary crap…he is 71 yo in a high stress occupation, and both his parents died of Alzheimers. Maybe his diet will take care of him before Mueller does.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      It so shows.

    • Uncle Mark

      As much as I want him gone NOW, I would much prefer that he lives…fully aware of the trials to come and the trials he will endure. I want to hear him squeal on anyone else that Mueller hasn’t come after yet, because you know the fat piggy will do just that, in a vain attempt to save himself. He needs to be fully cognizant of his crimes…as they are trotted out before him. I want him to be fully aware of how loathed he is; I want him shamed, torn down, bankrupted, and imprisoned…along with his den of thieves & colluding family. I want him denied every freedom, as he would have demanded of others. i want him as utterly destroyed as he sought to destroy Obama. Only THEN can he have his stroke or dementia.

      • Chucktech

        Oh, now, we mustn’t dwell in the past… We must always look forward…

        • Uncle Mark

          Sometimes to look forward, we need to make examples of those who’ve sought to rob others of their future, lest others follow in Trump’s wake. We failed to punish the bankers, who broke the economy, and here they are…worse than ever. Without justice there can be no peace. Without justice, there can only be corruption in the future.

          After that, then we can move forward.

          • Chucktech

            We also failed to punish the Iraq war criminals Moron and Darth Cheney, et. al. Literally, thanks, Obama…

      • RoFaWh

        I want him imprisoned and forced to wear an orange jump suit 24/7, complete with used undies out of the prison’s stash of such things. Gray, clapped out elastic, full of holes, and with prominent ineradicable stains in the back.

        • McSwagg

          LOL! A new pair of undies will be in that state in a matter of just a few days of wear by the orange one.

      • McSwagg

        Additionally, if he dies before being convicted or while appealing a conviction, the charges are dropped and he dies an “innocent man” in the eyes of the law. If that happens, we’ll never expose the treason behind the Russian collusion. See the death of Ken Lay, CEO of Enron (the crooked E), as an example.

        • RoFaWh

          Nobody is actually a descendant of Pocahontas who can prove it. While she had a son, Thomas Rolfe, in those days record keeping in the colonies was poor or non-existent, so there is no documentary evidence.

          I too am allegedly a descendant of Pocahontas but I’ll believe that if and when someone turns up new documentary evidence for her family tree.

        • RoFaWh

          If Trump weighs as much as I think, his knees are likely overdue for replacement. Have lots and lots of fun, Donald; it’s a very painful operation, and it incapacitates you for weeks on end. And given your weight, you are probably a poor surgical risk, so the docs might even say “you’ll just have to learn to put up with painful knees.”

            They might demand he get bariatric surgery first, then slim down for a bit. And if he took their advice, instead of having a meltdown right there in the office (they told him no, called him fat, AND tried to tell him what to do!!!), that would be the end of Trump, because he would never follow a diet some doctor gave him.

      Plus he’s stressed all the time

      So, does he used hard drugs?

      • McSwagg

        I heard he uses the soft, powdery kind of drugs.

    • stanhope

      You know the biggest winner of all? Melania Trump…with that diet Bob Dole ain’t the only one who can’t please his woman…..all of that eating must keep his tongue in good form so M can do her hair and nails while he’s busy down there and she can utter the contracturally required 2 ooooos and 3 ahs every 5 minutes which is timed on her apple watch.

      • zhera

        I guarantee you, Donnie has never gone down on anyone. He has said himself that he doesn’t care about giving pleasure to his bed partner. He’s too ‘manly’ for that.

        • RoFaWh

          So Trump isn’t even a “good fuck”??

          • Ants In My Eyes Johnson

            Trump is not now, nor has he ever been.

    • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

      Which is why I think he is a long-term meth addict, via Rx diet pills. This explain why a ‘healthy’ man’s primary physician is a gastroenterologist. If you look at the symptoms of long term amphetamine abuse, Trump has all of them other than weight loss. But considering what he eats, a non-speed addicted person would be Chris Christie sized.

    • david fairfield

      So, we can hope that he drops dead. I know I do.

      • RoFaWh

        But how will Moore be able to vote when he’s peering through the bars on his cell’s window?

    • gaycuckhubby

      Yep. He completely caved

      • SoCalGal20

        I doubt he even caved. He just previously said words to make it sound like he objected to Roy Moore. He doesn’t care and never did. He just wants Moore’s vote.

        • Gustav2

          He was never going to stop a Republican from taking a Senate seat.

    • Tomcat

      Plenty of room for Moore in the NEW IMPROVED SWAMP in Trumpland.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    Trumps treatment of his employees gives me flashbacks of a woman I used to work for. No matter your job title you were obligated to drop everything and cater to her whims. Regardless of how demeaning it was. I ran most of the apparel factory but found myself many times ironing garment samples for hours on end. The owner didnt care that she was using at 65k a year employee to iron. Food runs to duncan donuts. Screaming at her employees. Expecting absolute loyalty.
    I know what it feels like

    • fuow

      Oh yeah, one our local big-ticket 501 (3)c organizations is run by a woman exactly like this. Right down to the germaphobia.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I can’t help bit wonder if the germs phobia is an unconscious realization that they are pushing people to wish them dead.

    • Gustav2

      Did that boss go to Harvard or another Ivy?

      I have worked for 2 Harvard grads and thankfully never again.

    • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

      So you know Donna Karan?

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        haha. Trust me I wouldve put up with it if I had been running Donna Karans factory. No this was an apparel firm back in south carolina that made gym clothing. The owner THOUGHT we were making couture. Delusions of grandeur…..

        • AC

          sorry, just how stupid are you (or do you think readers are)? A non-profit firm that is “owned?” A non-profit apparel firm?

          • zhera

            Stephen didn’t mention anything about ‘non-profit’.

            What’s that you said about stupid?

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            I never said anything about where i worked being non profit. Your reading comprehension is not very good. I refrain from calling u stupid however

        • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

          A former boyfriend of mine used to live in NYC in the 80s and did windows for Barney’s and Saks. He met Donna a few times for meet and greets for her new lines. She was, he said, a mercurial force of nature. You didn’t want to be around her when she was having a “Bad Donna Day.” He’d experienced one himself. He said it was… not good.

    • JP

      I had a boss that was like Trump from what I gather. She was in her late 60’s and owned the company for years. It was a small non-profit and she had no more than 3 employees at a time because she wouldnt let the employees do her job. I was the longest employee she’d ever had and I was only there a year and a half. She kept changing rules, kept playing favorites when she was ready to discard an employee or she would chase them away by bein gutterly nasty. I used to think that she was so nasty and “forgetful” about rules she would give us because of dementia. THen I did a bunch of research and she was a total narcissist and exactly the same as Donald Trump. When I would write correspondence, she was always over my shoulder basically typing it for me. This is how I imagine Trump did JR. when they had to explain the Trump Tower meeting.

    • perversatile

      One of my more recent amusing experiences working in the magical
      world of film and television occurred while driving down a 2-lane back road while on location in BugTussel, Georgia at 4 in the morning trying to locate a 24/hr Target, in order to purchase a pair of matching skinny black ties as I entered that marvelous (yet ultimately disappointing) higher tax bracket inducing double time and a half with an easily avoided turn around time penalty looming in my next immediate future paycheck, for the wardrobe supervisor (a wretched name-dropping slattern) had deemed this task
      ”an emergency” and far beyond the abilities of a lowly P.A.

    So little Donnie is a germophobe, and yet he eats 2 Big Macs, 2 Filet-O-Fish and a chocolate milkshake in a single meal. He has no idea where real dangers lie, and that pretty much tells you everything you need to know about his life and his presidency.

    • Alexander Stallwitz

      The Presidency is very hard on a person. You can see it in a photos of ex presidents, and keep in mind these were healthy people that we knew were healthy. All we know about trump’s health is from his doctor who resembles Brent Spinner’s shady uncle. Trump eats nothing but junk and red meat and rarely execrises. Trump is a prime candiate for a heart attack or stroke. And this isnt even about his mental problems. (Theres a frighting amount of evidence that Trump is going senile) god help us all, we need it.

      • Chucktech

        The presidency is hard on legitimate presidents. They consider weighty matters of state that require considerable powers of concentration and perspicacity and contemplative cerebral capacity.
        This fat fuck spends his time watching TV, playing golf, eating Mickey D’s and yelling at subordinates. And, maybe, worrying a little about Mueller. Not anywhere near the same thing.

      Actually, many hypochondriacs are trying to balance their lives with their bad habits. Maybe if they’re healthy otherwise, they’ll cancel out the bad effects

      For my ex, it was party drug use

      For my father, it was smoking

      It doesn’t work of course, but that could be trumps mindset

  • fuow

    And yet, despite all of this being public knowledge prior to the election, we just couldn’t bring ourselves to drop the purity tests, the ‘the good is the enemy of the perfect’ ass-backwards thinking and the ‘well, the rethugs can’t really hurt us in just four years’ denial of reality.
    So, here we are, my dears. Hope the ‘Green’ votes and the Bernie write-ins and the non-votes to ‘teach us Democrats a lesson’ were worth it to you.
    I couldn’t eat two Big Macs and two Fish Macs 40 years ago (nor would I have done), what on earth is up with that? (That was rhetorical, we all know that dementia also affects the appetites).

    • Chucktech

      I’m thinking that, while the Greenies and the Bernies had their role, it really pales in comparison to the misogynists and stoopids who “just don’t trust Hillary” or were so blinded in impotent and meaningless rage that they could ignore a year and a half of Trump telegraphing just what the fuck he was that they’d STILL vote for him because at least he’s not….HILLARY!!! With, of course, more than a little help from their friend-skis.

      • fuow

        Yeah, lots of things came together on this one. As in every major catastrophe, it’s not just one fuck-up.
        Unfortunately, liberal turnout was dismal while conservative turnout was better than usual – both by between 3 and 5%, depending on how you define ‘conservative’.
        No question, though – rethugs fall in line, we fall in love. Until we on the left learn that lesson, we will continue to lose.

      • Tor

        Many of my friends and relatives defend themselves by saying they didn’t vote for either one. However, a vote for neither was a vote for Trump.

  • I will take you all down with me

    this is the most interesting part for me. not so much that he’s an arrogant asshole with no knowledge of how a political system should work. but that it’s a clue, yet another one, of just how fucking corrupt they all are.

    every last national level republican is a corrupt, lying, cheating, dodging nut case. and, more importantly, they are all dirty with either russian money or knowledge of russian manipulation of the party, its members, and/or the election.

    as a friend of mine said at another blog, these people aren’t the types who will give up power easily, bc they know that the entire party could be destroyed by a person like Mueller, if s/he was sufficiently motivated to prosecute them all. the trail of slime and corruption is longer than the great wall of china, and so out in the open even Little People like me can smell and see it. the republican party traded riding an elephant to grabbing the tail of a tiger, and now they are seeing the results. esp given that tiger is aged, psychopathic, and has a memory of reality as solid as swiss cheese. and i’m not sorry at all. i just hope they don’t find a “solution” to their current problems that involved nukes.
