One of the more bizarre claims in Omarosa Manigault Newman’s new book on President Donald Trump: Omarosa alleges that she once walked in on Trump eating paper in the Oval Office. The White House denies the accusations in Omarosa’s new tome.
According to The Hill, the Trump paper eating moment supposedly occurred after Trump had just met with Michael Cohen, who was the president’s attorney at the time and who is now under federal investigation by Robert Mueller’s team. Omarosa claims in her new book that Trump was chewing up paper when she walked into the Oval Office.

Not surprisingly, the memes and jokes flew on social media as a result of the bizarre claim. Some people were just baffled.
What is this about @realDonaldTrump eating paper?

Eating paper — which was once a tree — is probably the closest Trump has ever come to consuming a vegetable.

If you believe Trump was eating paper, I don’t, whats wrong with getting a little extra fiber in your diet… the left always complains when he eats those McD burgers anyway… they are never happy.

Omarosa recounted the story in her new book, Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House.
“I saw him put a note in his mouth. 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,” she writes.

It’s far from the only incendiary Omarosa claim in the new book, but it’s probably the oddest. She also claims that she was offered what she perceived as hush money to stay silent after she was fired from the administration, and she paints Trump as racist and a narcissist, according to The Post.
