Michael Wolff’s explosive sequel to his astonishing behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Trump White House in 2018 is hitting the newsstands, and the allegations within it are setting off a firestorm on social media.
While the callous remarks that Trump reportedly made about John McCain’s cancer and his wife’s kidney surgery have been dominating the headlines, the Daily Mail is now reporting that even more salacious accusations are yet to come — including alleged infidelity by the President while he was in the White House.
Daniel Bates at the Daily Mail writes that “Wolff also alleges that Trump has cheated on First Lady Melania Trump since he took office. He supposedly did not go to Mar-a-Lago, his Florida estate, last Christmas with her because he was ‘banging’ a White House staffer that he liked, though Wolff does not provide any more details or a name.”

Wolff also says that Trump bragged about receiving oral sex from former U.N ambassador Nikki Haley, though adds that this anecdote was “trashed” by White House staffers.
That’s just the beginning of the heinous statements and behaviors that Trump is reported to have said and done. Apparently “obsessed” with sex, he is said to have joked that he needed the “opposite of Viagra” in order to subdue his erections and that he needed to have sex with black women to “get a little chocolate in his diet.”
He openly defended sexual abusers like Harvey Weinstein (“a good guy”) but groused about how Brett Kavanaugh admitted he was a virgin (“My virgin justice. This man has no pride! Man? Did I say man? I don’t think so.”)
Wolff says that he was fixated on the Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations, demanding to know the details (“How long had he held her down? Did he just fall on her and go in for a kiss? Or was it humping?”) and disparaged Christine Blasey Ford for coming forward, complaining that “after 40 years she’s still upset? Give me a break. Give. Me. A. Break.”
While all of this needs to be taken with an entire barrel of salt, none of it seems particularly out of character for Trump, whose obsession with sex and compulsive infidelity is well-documented at this point.
If true, all of it is further evidence that we have elected a reprehensible lecher to the White House and the support he receives from rabid evangelicals is somehow even more hypocritical than it was before.
