When Donald Trump was about to argue with Hillary Clinton in 2016, he had a particularly odd question for an imaginary transgender student: “Rooster or no rooster?”
This crude, anaerobic behavior is just one of the revelations in New York Times Trump reporter Maggie Haberman’s The book is about to be released.
Haberman portrays Trump as a sex-obsessed and masculine homosexual – often to the horror of his aides – and details a number of instances, throughout the decades, when Trump’s true colors shine.
According to an excerpt obtained by The Daily Beast, a week before the second debate in St. Louis in 2016, a close adviser to Trump at the time, Reince Priebusbrings up an ambitious political figure with a question about gay bathrooms.
Playing a transgender female student, Priebus asked Trump if the hypothetical student could still use the girl’s bathroom.
Without missing a beat, Trump said he had a question.
“Checked or decoded?” Trump asked.
Giving a “blank look”, the group was surprised.
“Decrypted?” an unidentified individual in the answering room.
Trump then began making “a tight gesture.” “Tap or no faucet?” he say.
At the time, his advisers sitting in Trump Tower understood that Trump wanted to know if the imaginary student had converted and gone through bottom surgery.
“What difference does that make?” an adviser in the room responded to Trump. The now-former president countered that such determination would affect his answer.
“What if a girl is in the bathroom and someone walks in with her skirt up and a pair of trousers hanging out,” Trump continued, according to Haberman’s book. The Confident Man: The Birth of Donald Trump and the Fall of America.
Throughout the book, Haberman details how the current former president also frequently engages in guessing who might be gay.
For example, when the AIDS virus began to spread in New York City in the early ’80s, Trump called reporters to find out if the people he met and shook hands with were gay. .
But that was mild for Trump’s early years.
Trump’s conversations with associates often lead to “dull details”[s]”On erotic topics. More than 30 years after the fact, the book claims that even after Access Hollywood When the tape is made public, Trump will call his hot mic moment about grabbing women with his “vulva” merely “dressing room talk.”
“Those who hear him speak are often struck by the fact that he appears to be trying to shock,” Haberman writes.
It was again in the 80s, when he was attending a black-tie dinner with his first wife, Ivana Trump, when the topic of Brazilian women came up.
“They have a lot of vulva hair,” Trump said.
According to Haberman, the wife of Tony Gliedman in New York City, Ginny, stared at Trump when he researched how often Brazilian women have to wax.
“If Ivana heard her husband, she would not have reacted,” Haberman wrote.
Haberman did not return a request for comment.
Elsewhere in the book, former Trump staffers say the current former president will show off photographs of women he knows intimately as an expression of his “masculinity.”
“They also reiterated Trump’s mockery of gay men, or men seen as weak, with the words ‘weird’ or ‘stupid’,” Haberman continued.
Trump also tends to bully gay people, not looking at their faces. Instead, behind closed doors.
In particular, Trump would “belittle” Trump Organization chief executive Alan Marcus as a “odd freak” and “brag that he pays the executive less.”
Besides, New York Times The reporter explained how Trump would have strange obsessions about whether specific people both inside and outside of his orbit were gay.
In the early days of the administration, in a meeting with then-Vice President Mike Pence and the former director of communications campaigns Jason MillerTrump suggested that the latter “likes women.”
Trump, according to the book, added of Miller: “You know how sometimes someone becomes gay later on and you know what? This guy, he doesn’t even look one percent gay. “
