- Trump allegedly called Jerry Nadler a ‘fat little Jew’ and said of Michael Cohen that ‘Jews always flip,’ Wolff writes

- ‘When she hears my name she always looks like she’s going to cry. Like her father,’ Trump allegedly said of Meghan McCain after she criticized him
Donald Trump saw John McCain’s deadly brain tumor as a twisted kind of ‘personal validation’, Michael Wolff’s bombshell new book claims.
The President saw poetic justice in one of his biggest foes contracting the disease which would kill him in August last year.
But that wasn’t enough for Trump who grew angry that McCain, a war hero who survived being tortured in Vietnam, ‘hung on’ for 13 months.
After McCain died in August last year and his daughter Meghan sharply criticized the President, he became ‘obsessed’ with her weight – and gave her the cruel nickname ‘donut’.
The eye-popping anecdote is one of many supposed examples of the hateful comments made by Trump, claims Wolff, whose previous book was the best-selling Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
In the sequel, Siege: Trump Under Fire, he says that everyone in Trump’s orbit was subjected to being mocked, even his 12-year-old son Barron who he grumbled was growing too tall.

The President also supposedly claimed that ‘nobody cares’ when his wife, First Lady Melania Trump was suddenly taken to the hospital for what turned out to surgery for a kidney condition.
The book has come under fire itself by critics who say that Wolff has not properly check his facts.
Washingtonian magazine’s Andrew Beaujon said that Wolff has a ‘contempt for the absolute basics of journalism’ because he did not go to his subjects for comment before publication.
In the book Wolff stated that he was trying to ‘show, not tell’ who Trump is and that his unorthodox Presidency requires a different way of writing.
The author asserts he is trying to capture the ’emotional state’ of the President and to ‘communicate the experience’ of what he is like.

Trump’s most staggering criticism is leveled at the McCain family with whom the president has had a long running feud that began when he mocked McCain for being captured during the Vietnam War during the 2016 election.
McCain became the Senator that Trump hated the most when he voted against his repeal of Obamacare, sinking one of the President’s main policy goals.
According to Wolff when McCain made his tumor diagnosis public in July 2017 Trump said: ‘You see? You see what can happen’ – then he would ‘mime an exploding head’.
As McCain’s illness progressed, Trump moaned that he was not a ‘good enough sport’ to quit his Senate seat and let one of his allies take it over.
After McCain’s death, Trump’s hatred for him found an outlet in his daughter, who is a regular panelist on The View.
Trump said: ‘When she hears my name she always looks like she’s going to cry. Like her father. Very, very tough family. Boo hoo, boo hoo’.
Trump’s son Barron, 12, was even mocked for being tall, Wolff writes. The president had a ‘fetish’ about being the tallest person in the room and when Barron had a growth spurt, he joked: ‘How do I stunt his growth?’
Wolff claims that daughter Ivanka Trump is Trump’s favorite, as he greets her with ‘hey baby’, while his son Don Jr would be ‘singled out for ridicule’
Tiffany Trump, the president’s daughter with Marla Maples, went ‘unmentioned’, Wolff writes, while Trump would fail to acknowledge his son Eric when they were together
Wolff claims that Trump’s marriage is no more than a business arrangement – for Melania’s part she lived a ‘separate life’ protecting Barron from the ‘ill wind’ his father brought.
When Melania was taken to Walter Reed Medical Center in May last year there was no explanation for 24 hours, which sparked panic in the West Wing.
When asked by his then chief of staff John Kelly what was going on, Trump told him: ‘Nobody cares except the media’, adding: ‘She’s the First Lady, not the President’
For her part, Wolff claims, Melania has felt deeply uncomfortable in the White House and repeatedly told friends that ‘we don’t belong here’ as she preferred the comforts of Trump Tower.
The author also says that Melania frequently spoke her native Slovenian around Barron as a way of keeping them apart from his father.
Trump had a ‘fetish’ about being the tallest person in the room and when Barron hit 12 years old and had a growth spurt, he joked: ‘How do I stunt his growth?’
Wolff claims that Trump responded to the perceived challenge from his son with ‘hostility’ and ‘went out of his way’ to avoid him.
He wasn’t the only Trump child to get such treatment; Don Jr would be ‘singled out for ridicule’ and Trump would fail to acknowledge his son Eric when they were together, Wolff claims.
Tiffany, Trump’s daughter with Marla Maples, went ‘unmentioned’ but the President would always greet Ivanka, his favorite, with ‘hey baby’.
Wolff writes that Trump would often insult the physical appearance of his opponents or use words that many would consider grossly offensive to describe everyday matters.
Trump stayed in the White House over Christmas last year and said that the Secret Service agents patrolling the grounds were in ‘blackface’, which appeared to mean wearing ski masks.
When his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen turned on him, Trump said that the ‘Jews always flip’.
Trump dubbed Rex Tillerson, his former secretary of state, ‘Rex the dog’, accused his former economic adviser Gary Cohn of being gay and spread rumors about the personal life of Dina Powell, his former deputy national security adviser.
Wolff claims that Rudy Giuliani got the job of being Trump’s lawyer by ‘begging’ him and working for free.
Once Giuliani was representing the President, his freewheeling TV appearances confused even the White House staff.
After one of the them, Trump mocked his ‘crazy, crazy eyes’ and said that he ‘looks like a mental patient’, Wolff claims.

‘He’s a star. Get me a star,’ Trump once told his staff, referring to his enemy, attorney Michael Avenatti – who represented ex-porn star Stormy Daniels when she sued the president over hush money payment
According to the book, Trump considered another unlikely addition to his legal team – Michael Avenatti, who represented ex-porn star Stormy Daniels who sued the President over his hush money payment to her.
Trump wanted a lawyer to be a ‘killer’ and Trump thought that Avenatti – who considered running for the Presidency against Trump – was a ‘star’ who looked the part.
Trump once told his staff: ‘He’s a star. Get me a star’ but it never happened and the President celebrated when Avenatti was indicted for allegedly misusing his clients’ money.
Vice President Mike Pence fell under Trump’s suspicions because he was too loyal and never questioned him.
Trump thought that Pence was a ‘religious nut’ and the ‘stupidest man in Congress’ who had a secret agenda to replace him.
The President was freaked out by Pence’s wife, who he calls ‘mother’ and said that she ‘really gives me the creeps’.
Among some staff the hatred went both ways with Trump and his former chief of staff John Kelly though he was ‘deranged’ and ‘mad’.
Trump thought Kelly was ‘feeble’ and ready to ‘stroke out’
Trump’s former White House counsel Don McGahn supposedly used to sing under his breath the Taylor Swift song ‘This is why we can’t have nice things’ which finishes the line with the words: ‘Because you break them’.

Michael Wolff’s new book Siege promises to be as controversial as his 2018 bestseller Fire and Fury
James Comey, the former FBI director who Trump fired, triggered an outburst from the President when he published his memoir A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
Trump said: ‘Comey thinks I am stupid. I will show him how stupid I am…I will screw all of them’.
To a friend Trump supposedly remarked one time: ‘Federal prosecutors are like a cancer, colon cancer’.
Trump’s potty mouth was on full display during the filming of The Apprentice, the TV show which made him a household name.
Erik Whitestone, a young sound engineer who worked on the show, recalled how somebody said the word c*** during filming and were told they could not say it.
Trump said: ‘Why can’t you say c***? C***, c***, c***, c***. There, I’ve said it on TV. Now you can say it’.
Trump would say things to contestants like ‘you’re very pretty, stand up, walk over here, turn around’.

According to Whitestone there was ‘constant dialogue about who has better tits’ and lewd behavior which led to Trump having fights with the producers about using it.
Trump would say: ‘Why can’t we? This is great. This is great television’.
Even NATO could not escape Trump’s wrath and he said that attending meetings at the organization ‘bores the s*** out of me’.
Trump said the only reason he pretended to be interested as that photographers wanted a picture of him ‘falling asleep in my soup’.
Sometimes Trump was on the receiving end of invective from his staff like Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist who is a major source for Wolff’s book.
After Trump’s summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin Bannon thought that Trump looked like a ‘beaten dog’.
Trump caused outrage at a press conference after the summit when he agreed with Putin that Russia did not hack the 2016 election, even though US intelligence said it did.
According to Bannon, on Air Force one on the way home as the scale of his blunder became apparent Trump ‘retreated to his bedroom cabin in silence’.
