Trump’s Ghostwriter: He’s The ‘Most Purely Evil Human Being’ I’ve Ever Met

"Trump is the most purely evil human being I've ever met, and also the most insecure." — Tony Schwartz

During a recent Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, 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."

What happened to Trump is the same thing that has happened to so many people's parents and grandparents, he started watching Fox. He was infected just like the others.

For Tony Schwartz to say such hateful things about a man who loves the country he serves, he’s clearly a Leftist puppet. When people say this sort of garbage in public, it smacks of jealousy and spiteful revenge.

Where's the "laugh" button? Because this has to be a joke. Trump doesn't love this country nor does he serve it...

No, it speaks of the truth about this vile corrupt individual that never should have been given the privilege of being anywhere near the White House. He is such a lying, narcissistic, racist piece of crap that it begs the question of what kind of people actually support him, and give him cover?! It's pathetic that so many people drank the Kool-Aid, simply because he sold them a bill of goods that he would get rid of all the Mexicans, Muslims and Black people, and let all the overzealous Second Amendment nutcases stock all the guns they possibly can, as well as looking out for the crooked politicians, fake-Christian evangelicals, and pedophiles that back him. Look at something other than Fox News sweetie, and you might actually learn something about this con-man with his hooker wife that you let into the people's house. Disgraceful doesn't begin to describe him, his family, or his administration!

Trump only serves himself. The coward refused to serve his Country in a time of war. Your support for the draft dodger demonstrates your disdain for those that do serve. Trump is the worst thing to have ever happened to this Country.

Sadly, Trump has lost 'the way' and has total disregard for 'the truth'. He is an adulterer and racist. An evil creature whose total lack of morals and ethics is legendary. Trump is a narcissist who loves only that which enhances his life and bank balance.

Bullsht. One needn't be a "leftist" -- a ludicrous word, the meaning of which YOU clearly do not know -- to see that Putin's F**K-BUDDY, Traitor Trump, is a mentally-ill, Putin-owned, money-laundering, witness-tampering, employee-stiffing, tax-evading, draft-dodging, loan-defaulting, perjuring, embezzling, pssy-grabbing, wife-abusing, child-raping, daughter banging career criminal PERVERT, with his tertiary syphilis and his 40 year cocaine habit, who is DESTROYING America as he steals her blind.

You are joking right?? If not then I truly feel sorry for you. Hard to even imagine how anyone can be that misinformed to even think that.. Trump is the most despicable, disgusting, self absorbed excuse for a human being. He is incapable to caring for anyone, or anything other then himself.This country, he does not give a carp about, only how it can benefit him and only him.. Wake up!

Really?? I think you may be the one who's been fed lies and been brainwashed. The man who you claim loves our country, never served a moment. The heads of our military dont agree with his bs and a major percentage if service men think he is a terrible leader. All he has done for our country is work on destroying it. Hes a card carrying liar, a narcissist and a foul and depraved man. Anyone who can read or hear and still can defend him as you have, well you've drank the kool-ade and there is no hope for you, it's really so sad.

Not quite. First of all, we've already heard quite a bit of garbage coming out of Trump's mouth---so much so, for so long, it's hard to keep track. Calling countries "shitholes"? Saying he could shoot someone on 5th Ave and no one would care? I mean....people show you who they are, mister. As a native New Yorker, we know that Trump's family has mob ties, and behaves like the mob, starting w his father (maybe even earlier?). This is fact, and disturbing. Do some research. I think it is you, and others, who need to realize that you've been had by a master con man. Con men create believers...but after awhile, you just gotta open your eyes a little wider and pay attention---seriously. If you listen to Fox news, try listening to other news outlets. Get some perspective. Nobody wants a President who is a nightmare....but that's what we got. A whole branch of government doesn't start an impeachment process for the pleasure of it. Trump lies continuously, but hey---he kinda "looks the part" (aside from his fake hair and orange tan)....appearances can only take you so far. This is a showman with no moral compass, doing damage to our democracy and sowing division in our country. God help us help ourselves out of this mess. Tony Schwartz speaks truth. He knows. He saw it up close and personal.

He didn't start out despising Trump, he started out as his ghostwriter, where he got to really know Trump, the real person behind the façade he projects to his followers. From all accounts, Schwartz is absolutely correct in his assessment. Trump is vindictive. He's been caught in thousands of lies. He's a serial adulterer. He stiffs the workers who do work for him refusing to pay what he owes them. His charity put the money into his pockets rather than helping the people the money was supposedly collected for. He was found guilty of that. He stiffs the cities who host his rallies, leaving it to their taxpayers to make up for what he has cheated them of. He mocks the disabled. He releases murderers who disgrace the uniform of the United States, overriding what our military leaders have ordered. He is dumb as lettuce. Smart people listen to him, read his tweets and shake their heads in disbelief at just how ill-informed and poorly educated he is. He criticized Obama for playing golf and told you that he would be working in the White House, not playing golf all the time. How's that working? He spends millions of our taxpayer dollars benefitting his own businesses. I'd be hard pressed to find a single good quality in the man. That you can both support and defend this horrible excuse for a human being says a lot about your own basic humanity and intelligence. I hope your= were being ironic. If not, you should read the book A Very Stable Genius. Please study him deeply ... don't just listen to his rally speeches. Then ask yourself, would Jesus support Trump? Would Jesus separate babies from their mothers for the "crime" of legally seeking asylum? Would Jesus mock disabled people or gloat about committing adultery? Would Jesus be credibly accused of rape? Would Jesus have child predator Jeffrey Epstein as a friend and party with him and make jokes about Epstein's preference for young women (teenagers)? Would Jesus violate Matthew 25: 31-46 each and every day? Please search your soul.

Trump neither loves or serves our country. He is destroying it with his lawlessness, flouting of the constitution, his lack of civility & of a moral compass. The only thing he cares about is having his own way and supposedly his family.

Here are some facts. Trump declared bankruptcy 6 times after which no US banks would loan him money. Broke and desperate he went to Deutsche Bank which has a history of money laundering and has been fined for it by the World Bank. He eventually borrowed almost 2.5 billion but defaulted on one of the early loans. After a brief pause because he was an obvious risk they continued to loan him money. Recently retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's son was a bank executive there and involved in some of these dubious loans. Several bank executives have died under mysterious circumstances and one apparently had a 400 lb bathtub fall on him. The Russia State Bank backed those loans so #45 is being floated by Russian money which is why Putin has leverage on him.

Trump is the ultimate useful idiot. If you were the corrupt leader of a country and the only thing preventing you from expanding your sphere of influence and your grasp on greed was an alliance of nations, an alliance where one nation had chosen to be the military might and on whom the others depended, would not the best course of action be simply to get that country to elect an imbecile who would destroy all alliances out of his own sense of greed and self worth, put in power someone who might actually be your compatriot in the abuse of other countries for personal gain, someone so egotistical that you might convince them to try and make themselves permanent leader just as you had and in doing so not only destroy the alliances which held you back, but the very country who had chosen to be the military might, from the inside out. Trump is nothing but a useful idiot, the real criminals are the spineless republican senators who would happily make a faustian bargain to enrich themselves, knowing full well it would damage the country.

You mean the guy who sided with Putin over 14 US intell agencies? Ceded American influence in the Middle East? Alienated our NATO allies? Has praised authoritarian leaders? Has secret meeting in the oval office with Russian representatives? Has shady business dealings with Deutche Bank and Russia oligarchs? Seriously?? I have no doubt that historians will not treat this Administration well. How do I know? Because my colleagues will write it.

And what better source of confirmation of all our suspicions than someone who was intimately close enough to Trump to write a book with him? And let the world see him for what he is.
