Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claim that she saw President Donald Trump chewing up a piece of paper after meeting with then-lawyer Michael Cohen on Sunday is bogus, Cohen tweeted Sunday.
"To the many dozens of #journalists who called me, questioning @OMAROSA claim in her new book that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump took a note from me, put it in his mouth and ate it...I saw NO such thing and am shocked anyone would take this seriously," he said.
Manigault Newman made the allegation in her forthcoming book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” according to the Washington Post, which obtained excerpts and published them Friday.
Among the incendiary claims – Manigault Newman said Trump constantly used the n-word during filming of “The Apprentice” and she said she saw Trump chewing up a piece of paper after he met with Cohen.
“I saw him put a note in his mouth,” she writes in her book. “Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. It must have been something very, very sensitive.”
Manigault Newman was fired from her job as White House aide last December by chief of staff John Kelly, and in the book says she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, offering her a job and a monthly contract in exchange for her silence.
