A controversial new book about the Donald Trump administration has revealed some unbelievable habits of the current President.
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff goes into great depth about the scandals and staff firings that have rocked the White House in the past 12 months.
The book also reveals some of Mr. Trump's more personal details and the traits he likes to abide by. These allegedly include leaving his laundry on the floor, not allowing anyone to touch his toothbrush and a fear of being poisoned.
One of the most bizarre extracts claims that Mr. Trump likes to be in bed by 6:30 pm, watching three televisions, eating a cheeseburger and making phone calls to his friends.
The extract reads:
If he was not having his 6:30 dinner with Steve Bannon, then, more to his liking, he was in bed by that time with a cheeseburger, watching his three screens and making phone calls — the phone was his true contact point with the world — to a small group of friends, who charted his rising and falling levels of agitation through the evening and then compared notes with one another.
Given all the weird things that have been reported about Trump in the last year or so these claims should hardly surprise anyone.
Considering all this, and the variety of things that are posted on social media about the President, it's hard to differentiate between what is true and what Trump likes to call "Fake News."
With multiple excerpts from the book doing the rounds, a fake but thoroughly believable story from the entertaining Twitter account @pixelatedboat has gone viral.
The tweet claims that Trump loves gorillas so much that the White House staff had to make a TV channel dedicated to the animals fighting each other.
Wow, this extract from Wolff’s book is a shocking insight into Trump’s mind: https://t.co/1ZecclggSa
