Former White House aide spills on weird behind-the-scenes "Apprentice" moments, the president's tanning bed and his relationship with first lady Melania Trump.
Omarosa Manigault Newman's "Unhinged" was unveiled Tuesday, and much like Michael Wolf's "Fire and the Fury," it provides a number of juicy thoughts and claims about Donald Trump, his administration and family.
Outside of more lurid allegations about the president coveting his own daughter, Ivanka Trump, the biggest bombshells appear to have already been dropped during Omarosa's busy press tour, which has visited every major cable news network, except the president's favorite, Fox News.
A brief summary: Omarosa now firmly believes Trump is "racist," asserted that he totally used the "N-word" on the set of "Apprentice," said she's heard the tape, released a secret audio recording of her discussing the tape and Trump's use of the N-word with prominent campaign staffers, admitted to being complicit in helping the Trump administration deceive the nation, is adamant Trump is "mentally declined," released audio of Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her, and then released audio of Trump calling her to claim he had no idea she was being fired and that he wasn't happy about it.
And now, here's nine more nuggets from "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," written by the former White House aide that Trump called a "dog" on Tuesday morning after nicknaming her "Wacky Omarosa" just a day earlier.
Ivanka's Daddy Issues
“As long as I’d known Trump, I’d observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy," Omarosa writes, according to an excerpt quoted by by The Daily Mail. "In my opinion, based on my observations, their relationship goes right up to the line of appropriate father/daughter behavior and jumps right over it. I believe he covets his daughter. It’s uncomfortable to watch them."
Daddy Approves of Rock Stars Ogling His Daughter
Omarosa also claims in the book that Trump asked former "Apprentice" contestant Gene Simmons on the set of the NBC reality show what he thought about Ivanka. The KISS bassist, also known for having rock star sex with thousands of women, allegedly proceeded to make sexually crude remarks about Ivanka and Trump only egged Simmons on as Ivanka tried to change the subject.
"She's a very, very sexy, desirable young woman who I'm looking forward to getting to know much better if you know what I mean, with all due respect," Omarosa quotes Simmons as saying, according to The Daily Mail.
On a more personal note, Omarosa describes Simmons as "the most disgusting misogynist I have ever met."
Trump Encouraged Don Jr. to 'Get Ass' Outside of Marriage to Then-Pregnant Wife Vanessa
More behind-the-scenes "Apprentice" dirt!
According to The Guardian, Omarosa writes about Trump encouraging son Don Jr. to pursue women outside of his marriage to now ex-wife, Vanessa.
"You’ve got to get ass like that. You got to get some ass like that," Omarosa quotes Trump as telling his son when they were seated around a table with 2008 "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Carol Alt, who enjoyed a long modeling career.
Trump's Nickname for Betsy DeVos
Betsy DeVos has been widely ridiculed for her questionable intelligence, but according to Omarosa, even the president thinks she's a moron.
The woman Trump now calls "Wacky Omarosa" alleges that Trump refers to his secretary of education as "Ditzy DeVos."
Omarosa also spills that Trump's nickname for Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "Benjamin Button."
Forget the Bible
According to Omarosa, Trump floated the idea of being sworn in to the presidency at his inauguration ceremony by placing his hand on -- get this -- his book "The Art of the Deal."
Why? It would be a great way to promote his book he described as the "greatest business book of all time."
Omarosa writes she LOLed at the idea and gave him some solid advice: keep that idea to yourself.
Omarosa Is Confident Melania Wants a Divorce
“In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him," Omarosa writes in the epilogue of her book.
Before that, she addresses the first lady's "I DON'T REALLY CARE. DO U?" jacket, which she wore at the start of her trip to visit detained immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I believe that Melania uses style to punish her husband," Omarosa writes. "She wore that jacket to hurt Trump, setting off a controversy that he would have to fix, prolonging the conversation about the administration’s insensitivity."
For the record, Melania's spokesperson said at the time that "there was no hidden message."
Trump Can't Read Good
Omarosa writes that Trump has trouble with big words and doesn't care to read important paperwork, per Newsweek.
"I’ll go on the record and say that Donald Trump has never read from beginning to end any of the major pieces of legislation, policies, or even some of these executive orders that he has signed," she writes. "Donald has always relied on his charisma, his street smarts and trusted advisers to tell him what was in the paperwork."
Omarosa estimates in the book that the President of the United States of America reads at an eighth- or ninth-grade level, and it was a struggle to brief him before a White House Black History Month event.
"He couldn’t retain any of the bullet points," she writes in the book. "He couldn’t remember any of the key points and stumbled over large words, which we scratched out and replaced with simpler terms."
POTUS Is Going Cray Cray
According to Omarosa, President Donald Trump speaks "gibberish" on top of repeating himself and rambling.
"I seriously began to suspect the president was delusional or had a mental condition, that made him forget from one day to the next," she writes at one point in the book, and describes her former boss "rambling incoherently, speaking in random fragments (and) veering from thought to thought."
So, in other words, she's seen the same rally speeches the rest of us have.
Tanning Bed Firings
Omarosa asserts in the book that the reason the White House's first female and second-ever African-American ushers were fired is because Trump "didn’t approve of her handling of his tanning bed."
"He was unhappy with her efforts to procure the bed, to bring it into the East Wing securely, to find a discreet place for it, and to set it up properly," she writes.
More fun tanning-bed-related insight from Omarosa: According to People, she claims Trump was alone in the room that contains his tanning bed when he sent out that "covfefe" tweet.
BONUS BITE: Hillary's Emails
It's not clear if Omarosa dives into the topic in "Unhinged," but while appearing on MSNBC Tuesday, she dropped a pretty big revelation that could pertain to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Tur: He knew about them?
Tur: He knew what was coming out before Wikileaks released them?
Omarosa: Yes. pic.twitter.com/4JhyzJBGEC
Omarosa added, "I will say that I am going to expose the corruption that went on in the campaign and in the White House. I am going to continue to blow the whistle on all of this."
Buckle up, folks.
