Trump’s Ghostwriter: He’s The ‘Most Purely Evil Human Being’ I’ve Ever Met
During an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit last year, President Donald Trump’s ghostwriter for his book, Art of the Deal, said the president is “the most purely evil human being” he has met, according to Esquire.
Tony Schwartz wrote on the website: "I believe deeply that most people are better than their worst behaviours. I also believe there are some who are simply irredeemable and evil. [Psychiatrist and author] Scott Peck called them 'People of the Lie'. They lack any conscience, as Trump does, and so they're almost purely evil. Trump is the most purely evil human being I've ever met, and also the most insecure."
Schwartz also told his audience that the worst thing about working with Trump was his short attention span and “utter lack of interest in anything but himself."
The writer said Trump has only become worse since the time they worked together on the then-real estate mogul’s book.
"If he had any ideology when I met him, it was faintly libertarian," Schwartz said. "As in: You do whatever you want to to do so long as it doesn't get in the way of my doing whatever the hell I want to do. In the last few years I believe he has moved relentlessly to the right. He's become more nativist, racist, narrow-minded and he's now just a shade to the right of Attila the Hun."
