DONALD Trump has slammed the writing and release of Shane Richie’s autobiography From Rags to Richie.
The president-elect said the celebrity memoir was ‘salacious nonsense and completely untrue’ and blamed US intelligence agencies for releasing it into discount book shops.
Trump said: “I read it and it’s completely untrue. Whoever wrote it is sick.”
“It’s disgraceful that they allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake and never happened to enter the public domain.”
Richie hit back saying that every word the book is true, from his humble beginnings as a dustman’s son to becoming ‘the don’ of prime time soap opera.
He said: “It’s all real, including my tumultuous love affairs with a bevy of beautiful women and my early showbiz career as a Butlin’s redcoat.
“Especially the stuff about ‘golden showers’. If you’re a redcoat thats’s just how you roll.”
Trump added: “Sick. Just sick.”
