Donald Trump has constantly talked about his brain, his extremely huge brain, and how wonderful and smart it is, beginning with his campaign and continuing through his presidency. While Trump’s fascination with his huge brain appeared to be one of his unpredictable public speaking tics, Stephanie Grisham’s latest book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, reveals that Trump was supposedly worried about his noggin even behind closed doors.
Grisham offers an anecdote about Trump refusing to accept a charity challenge from a child because it may destroy his extraordinary thinking capability, putting the country into turmoil, in an excerpt published by Politico on Friday:
Around the turn of the year, a little child began openly daring Trump to go vegan in television commercials and on highway billboards. The child claimed that if the president approved, the charity he represented would donate $1 million to veterans. At the time, I was the communications director, and I jokingly asked the president if he would ever consider it, pointing out that the challenge would raise a lot of money for a worthy cause. I knew he liked steaks and cheeseburgers, but a month didn’t seem like a long time to me.
Trump’s retort was fast, and his tone abruptly became solemn.
“No, no. It messes with your body chemistry, your brain,” he said, offering his views on vegetarian diets. “And if I lose even one brain cell, we’re f*cked.”
Of course, Trump reportedly required a dedicated “Music Man” (Grisham’s ex-boyfriend) to play “Memories” from the Broadway musical Cats whenever Trump was on the “brink of rage” in the same book, and he reportedly required a dedicated “Music Man” (Grisham’s ex-boyfriend) to play “Memories” from the Broadway musical Cats whenever Trump was on the “brink of rage.” In short, those are the telltale symptoms of a fearless and brilliant mind that must be preserved at all costs from vegetable burgers. Dogs made of tofu? Don’t even consider it. By daybreak, we’ll all be dead.
