A new excerpt from Michael Wolff’s upcoming book "Fire and Fury" claims that President Trump made provocative comments about White House communications director Hope Hicks that sent her running out of the room.
Hicks and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reportedly had an on-again, off-again relationship which appeared to be a source of controversy.
“And this is what the book says ‘Hicks sat in Trump Tower with Trump and his sons, worrying about Lewandowski’s treatment in the press and wondering aloud how she might help him,’” according to an exclusive excerpt obtained by MSNBC that was revealed on-air by anchor Chris Jansing on Wednesday.
“Trump, who otherwise seemed to treat Hicks in a protective and even paternal way, looked up and said, ‘Why? You’ve already done enough for him. You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have’ sending Hicks running from the room,” the excerpt continued.
Jansing noted reported exchange could be a source of controversy given Trump’s prior history of making inappropriate comments in regards to women.
A few weeks before the 2016 presidential election, the Washington Post released a 2005 hot mic exchange between Trump and Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush where he joked about grabbing women without consent.
