Trump's aide: He didn't want to be in pics with his daughter - thought she was overweight
We now know more information on former trusted Trump aide Madeleine Westerhout, who 'abruptly and unexpectedly' left the White House on Thursday after being with the president his entire term in office.
According to reports in Politico, she bragged to reporters that she had a better relationship with Trump than his own daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and not only that but the president didn't even like being in pictures with Tiffany because he perceived her as overweight.
This is very damaging personal information if true, only because it reveals how Trump thinks about his one of his own daughters.
Westerhout made the claim while having too much to drink, and joked that Trump couldn't pick Tiffany out of a crowd.
“She had a couple drinks and in an uncharacteristically unguarded moment, she opened up to the reporters,” a person said.
The White House is mad that the news even made its way into the papers, claiming that the comments were made at an off-the-record dinner that reporters have with White House staffers all the time.
“This was an off-the-record dinner and the media blatantly violated that agreement,” an administration official said.
Regardless of whether the information should have been reported or not, Westerhout said it and it would be very hard for us not to believe her. She knows many things about the president in her time being in the administration, not to mention her level of access.
The 28 year-old has sat outside the Oval Office since day one acting as Trump's personal greeter, always there to assist him any time he needed it.
Trump even talked about how important she was, saying in a Washington Post interview in 2018, that his aide was the sole way to reach him.
“Madeleine is the key,” Trump claimed.
She was viewed as very loyal but that tenure has come to an end. Now Trump will have to find another one.
