As scenes of carnage unfolded on the tv in his personal dining room off the Oval Office, President Trump was raving.
Surrounded by a handful of devoted consiglieres, he saw as the rioters stormed the United States Capitol– astonishing images that shocked the world and would indicate the harsh denouement of his four-year presidency.
Yet it was not the chaos and violence that caused Trump to holler in fury– not the dead bodies, consisting of a Capitol police officer who passed away from a massive brain bleed after being struck in the head with a fire extinguisher.
Vice versa. As a White House source told The Mail on Sunday last night, Trump was ‘apoplectic’ in shame since the ‘white garbage’ mob on screen made him look bad.
‘ He was angry, not at the terrible criminal offenses they were devoting, however due to the fact that he felt embarrassed,’ stated the source. ‘When they initially stormed the Capitol he was enjoying it. These were “his people”.
United States President Donald Trump was raving in the White House during the siege of the capital building- but not because of the scenes of destruction or the dead bodies. He was upset due to the fact that his supporters were ‘making him look bad’
‘ However when he saw images of the half-naked man in the fur hat he started complaining they looked “low-cost and bad”.
‘ Even at one of the worst minutes in American history he was considering his image. He didn’t understand the scale of the catastrophe.’
With ten days to go up until the end of his presidency, The Mail on Sunday can today expose what the aide referred to as ‘the last hours of a deranged president in his bunker’.
Fuelled by hamburgers and unlimited cans of Coca-Cola, Trump ignored calls from his closest political advisors, consisting of Vice President Mike Pence, who begged him to make a telecasted address and call off the mob.
‘ He was screaming: “Why should I? These people are my advocates”.’.
In desperation, assistants looked for Very first Woman Melania Trump, one of the few individuals whose advice the president still hearkens.
Yet, nearly exceptionally she remained in the East Wing of the White House overseeing a photoshoot for a brand-new coffee table book about governmental artefacts.
‘ The heart of United States government was under siege, our really democracy on the line, but Mrs Trump was calmly setting up porcelain figurines for the photographer,’ the source continued, stating even the most loyal staying Trump staffers were left ‘surprised’ by her actions.
As the mob attacked the Capitol Trump was asked to call them off, but his assistant states he addressed: ‘Why should I? These individuals are my supporters’.
The President said his fans, such as the man in the fur hat, looked ‘low-cost and poor’.
Undoubtedly, the First Lady’s closest advisor, her chief of staff Stephanie Grisham, tendered her resignation later on that day.
Melania was even asked to intercede, to require her other half to openly decry the insurgency, but she declined.
‘ She stated absolutely nothing. She stayed quiet and carried on arranging a vase for the shoot. She had a look at of this presidency and her marriage a very long time ago.’.
Considering that losing the November 3 election– a loss he still refuses to accept despite the fact that he has actually now promised to supervise a serene handover to President Joe Biden on January 20– Trump has actually become ‘significantly psychopathic and removed from truth’, according to the former consultant.
Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol happened shortly after Trump provided a speech whipping-up a currently irritated crowd, and significant just how far the president has actually descended into what the assistant called ‘his own individual hell’.
‘ He’s delusional. The group around him that stay are sycophants who inform him what he wishes to hear. He genuinely believes the election was stolen from him despite the fact that there is not a shred of proof for that.
‘ It’s like the president is residing in a parallel universe. Everybody understands he lost, that there was no citizen scams, yet in his mind the White Home has actually been taken from him and the rioters this week are devoted patriots defending him versus those who are trying to take the presidency from him.’.
As Wednesday’s events unfolded, Trump’s inner circle shrank even further.
In the end only his chief of personnel Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, workers director Johnny McEntee, lawyer Rudy Giuliani and policy adviser Stephen Miller remained in the space.
First Girl Melania Trump was asked to intercede and persuade her other half to call off the mob, however she continued with her photoshoot organizing porcelain figurines.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss (imagined), Ivanka Trump’s sister-in law, turned on her in-laws calling them ‘anti-American’.
‘ Everybody else who had pleaded with him to publicly knock what was going on had actually left. Melania wouldn’t do a thing.
‘ In the end we had to plead Ivanka to enter there. Everyone left the space while she spoke to her daddy.’.
‘ First Daughter’ Ivanka was the one who finally convinced Trump to record a quick video, released on his Twitter feed– an account which has actually given that been permanently suspended.
Trump repeated his accusations of election fraud however told his advocates to ‘stay calm and go house’ adding: ‘We like you.’.
‘ It was insufficient, too late,’ commented the source. ‘By then the damage to America in the eyes of the world had been done.
‘ There was a sense of overall anguish amongst people who have actually committed their lives for the past 4 years to attempt to do good under this presidency.
‘ In a couple of hours on Wednesday afternoon, everything we worked for was trashed.’.
It is not just Trump whose track record depends on tatters this weekend. Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner have become ‘social pariahs’. A former friend informed Vanity Fair magazine: ‘How do you associate yourself with the worst, most toxic individuals in history?’ Ivanka called the mob ‘American patriots’ in a tweet about Wednesday’s insurrection, a post she quickly removed.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss, wed to Jared’s bro Joshua, turned on her in-laws calling them ‘anti-American’.
When a Twitter follower asked Kloss to attempt to reason with her family members she replied merely: ‘I have actually attempted.’ Veteran Kushner good friend Bob Sommer sent out Ivanka a text saying: ‘I am frightened I attended your wedding.’.
Ivanka’s former pal added: ‘Ivanka and the entire family will be socially ostracised.
‘ Before this week individuals still related to them due to the fact that of their power and impact but now everybody has joined the resistance.’.
Elimination vans were seen outside Ivanka’s Washington DC home on Friday. It is thought she is moving her household back to their New York home.
So what now for Trump?
It is said he is preparing to get away to his luxurious Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida the day before the inauguration from where he will mastermind a bid for re-election in 2024.
Supporters have currently vowed more than $200 million to return him to the White Home. That is if he does not wind up in jail initially. The aide explained: ‘Even if he pardons himself, that just covers him for federal crimes. As quickly as he leaves office the state of New York is following him for tax evasion.
‘ And he could deal with prosecution in state court in Washington DC for inciting the mob to violence. His legal issues have only just started.’.
And Melania? It has actually been commonly reported that she negotiated a post-nuptial arrangement consenting to stay with Trump, but just during his presidency.
Many think she will declare divorce after January 20.
With impeachment procedures versus him set to start tomorrow, Trump means to spend this coming week ‘attempting to reclaim his legacy and image’.
The Mail on Sunday has been informed he is making a video this weekend highlighting his administration’s accomplishments and he prepares to head to Texas next week to offer a speech standing in front of a stretch of border wall with Mexico that was developed under his watch.
‘ At this moment he’s had a look at of reality,’ the source stated.
‘ He is now doubting whether he ought to have stated he would accept a peaceful transition of power since that has angered his base who feel betrayed.
‘ He’s now stressing over how history will judge him and wants to start rehabilitating his image while he still has the power of the presidency.
‘ You need to keep in mind more than 70 million Americans chose him. He still has a big fan base.
‘ Of all the issues Joe Biden deals with, domestic terrorism is up there at top. Individuals are mad as hell and they have guns. America’s difficulties are far from over when Trump leaves office.
‘ In truth, they are simply starting.’
