Former presidential aide Newman’s book - Unhinged

Former presidential aide Omarosa Manigault Newman published 'Unhinged' 16 months ago. She told about her 15-year relationship with Donald Trump. She argued that Trump is suffering a dramatic mental decline. The morning of the book's release, Trump called her a “dog” on Twitter.
Trump’s memory is failing, Newman claims, to the point that he doesn’t recognize new hires when they come into the Oval Office. “Any time somebody new came in to brief him, he’d get angry and say, ‘Who’s that guy? What’s he want?’” He’s “paranoid and irritable,” she writes, and “anything could trigger fits of rage.” Close advisors were subject to long, rambling phone calls, and subject to screaming tirades if they didn’t deliver what he wanted.
His “mental decline could not be denied” she writes. The former advisor pointed to a study showing the correlation between daily diet-soda consumption and dementia. That study found people who drink diet sodas daily have three times the risk of stroke and dementia compared to people who rarely drink them. Trump consumes a dozen diet cokes or more daily, and has done so for years. The Boston University School of Medicine and colleagues studied more than 4,000 people.
