Donald Trump once accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s mom of sleeping with all the Rolling Stones, former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham says in her forthcoming tell-all memoir.
He made the comment about former Canadian First Lady Margaret Trudeau to Grisham during an Air Force One flight, according to an excerpt released Friday.
‘Once, on Air Force One, I was sitting with him in his cabin, and for whatever reason — maybe he had just read something or seen his face on TV — Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau popped into the president’s head,’ Grisham writes.
She said Trump asked her, ‘Are you OK if I say this?’ – what Grisham noted was ‘always a troubling question.’
‘Who knew what was going to come out of his mouth? Sure, I nodded,’ Grisham recounts.
The message was: ‘Trudeau’s mom. She f**ked all of the Rolling Stones.’
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger later told the Evening Standard she was a ‘very sick girl in search of something. She found it – but not with me. I wouldn’t go near her with a barge pole.’

A section of the book, ‘I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,’ adapted in Politico details Trump’s relatively calm first weeks of 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic threw the world into disarray.
During that time ‘Trump was for the most part in a good mood and, as always, up for chatting about anything under the sun,’ Grisham writes.
That apparently included gossip about the wild, partying past of Justin Trudeau’s mother.
The excerpt didn’t reveal where Trump ended up sending the message or even if he did.
Grisham does note that Margaret Trudeau denied having affairs with any of the Rolling Stones.
‘I should have slept with every single one of them,’ the former first lady later said at a mental health conference.
Margaret Trudeau is the ex-wife of Pierre Trudeau, who served as Canada’s 15th prime minister and is the current prime minister’s father. They agreed to separate in 1977 and divorced in 1984.
Since separating from Justin Trudeau’s father, Margaret Trudeau’s vibrant social life dominated headlines (pictured: Trudeau dancing with tennis star Vitas Gerulaitis at Studio 54 in 1977)

Since then she’s been an actress, author, photographer and a mental health advocate.
The same year the Trudeaus first agreed to split, Margaret Trudeau attended a Rolling Stones concert in Toronto where she later admitted to hanging out with the rockers ‘until about five in the morning’ and smoking marijuana with them.
‘She had arrived in a Stones limo and leaves in a Stones limo and takes a suite at the Harbour Castle and holds a well-guarded party for the band. Back at the hotel, I catch a glimpse of her in a white bathrobe wafting down a corridor,’ a Rolling Stone Magazine article written in 1977 notes.
According to the story, Jagger wore a ‘sly grin’ when he described his encounter with the then-28-year-old.
‘She just dropped by,’ Jagger said. ‘Someone said she wanted to come to the gig, so we took her. I had never met her before. But I guess she likes to go out to clubs and go rocking and rolling like everyone else — young girl, you know.’
Late drummer Charlie Watts added, ‘One of our mums.’
Margaret Trudeau recounted hosting the rockers in her hotel suite after the concert in a 2016 profile in Harper’s Bazaar.

Former President Donald Trump once told his then-communications director that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mother slept with every member of the Rolling Stones
‘We played dice until about five in the morning, in my hotel suite,’ she told the magazine.
‘Smoked some dope, talked. It was a good night, and it was my new world. But no one knew I was separated from my husband yet, and it brought a huge scandal.’
It generated rumors that she had slept with Jagger or guitarist Ronnie Wood.
‘I spent the night with the Rolling Stones, no question, but it was certainly not Mick Jagger. And that’s all we’ll say about that,’ Margaret Trudeau had said.
The profile notes that Wood later wrote of her in his 2007 memoir, ‘We had a wonderful time and her husband’s name never came up.’

After recounting their salacious conversation about the Canadian prime minister’s mother possibly canoodling with rock stars, Grisham writes of another conversation where she suggested the former president take part in a 30-day vegan diet challenge.
The book will be released on October 5
A young boy had challenged Trump to go vegan in a series of ads across television channels and billboards in exchange for donating $1 million to US military veterans.
‘I was communications director at the time and I playfully asked the president if he would ever consider doing that, since the challenge would raise a lot of money for a good cause,’ Grisham writes.
She noted that ‘he loved his steaks and cheeseburgers’ but thought the 30-day window was doable.
‘Trump’s response was swift, and his tone was suddenly very serious,’ Grisham claims.
He said, ‘No, no. It messes with your body chemistry, your brain…And if I lose even one brain cell, we’re f**ked.’
The details coincide with a 9-year-old’s public campaign to get Trump to go vegan that began around December 2019.
A young activist from Florida who goes by Vegan Evan challenged Trump to take up a vegan diet in order to ‘Make America Healthy Again.’
The nonprofit backing him was called Million Dollar Vegan, which offered to ‘donate a million dollars to a charity of Trump’s choice.’
The ex-president never responded to Evan publicly.
Trump told Stephanie Grisham he didn’t have a ‘toad-shaped penis’ during Melania’s campaign of revenge over Stormy Daniels affair
The ex-press secretary also recalled how Trump insisted his penis was not shaped like a toadstool – responding to comments made by porn star Stormy Daniels.
Daniels wrote in a 2018 book on her affair with the former president: ‘I lay there, annoyed that I was getting f***ed by a guy with Yeti pubes and a d*** like the mushroom character in Mario Kart.’
Trump, upon hearing the allegation, called his press secretary from Air Force one to assure her his penis was neither small nor shaped like a toadstool, Grisham said.
Grisham also wrote that the former president once asked her former boyfriend, Miller, if she was good in bed.
The Daniels affair, Grisham wrote, ‘unleashed’ Melania’s vengeance as she began trying to contradict her husband in public.
The first lady told Grisham she didn’t believe her husband’s denials.
When Grisham drafted a tweet requesting privacy at the time of the affair, saying that Melania would focus on being a first lady, wife and mother, the first lady asked Grisham to scrub the tweet of the word ‘wife.’
Trump would cut his hair with giant scissors and tunes from his favorite musicals would calm him down
Grisham’s includes bizarre details about Trump’s behavior.
For instance, she claims he cuts his hair with a ‘huge pair of scissors that could probably cut a ribbon at an opening of one of his properties.’
She also writes that one of Trump’s aides – later revealed to be Grisham’s ex-boyfriend Max Miller, who is running for an Ohio Congressional seat and has been endorsed by Trump – would play him his favorite show tunes, including ‘Memory’ from Cats, to calm him down during tantrums.
Grisham described Trump’s temper as ‘terrifying.
Trump takes interest in a young press aide
Trump continued the womanizing behavior he was known for as a brash Manhattan real estate tycoon at the White House, Grisham revealed, writing that he repeatedly invited a young press aide to his Air Force One cabin – one time to look at her behind.
‘A couple of times I came close to telling Mrs. Trump about the president’s behavior. I thought that if she would say one little word to him about it, she could make it stop. But I could never bring myself to say anything,’ Grisham wrote.
Ultimately, she was too ‘chickens***’ to tell the then-first lady or ‘maybe it wasn’t my place or any of my business,’ she noted.
And she reveals Melania Trump may still not know about the former president’s behavior.
Grisham revealed in her book that the former president took ‘an unusual interest in a young, highly attractive press wrangler on my team.’
She details what she called inappropriate behavior by Trump and noted she tried to protect the staffer, who she doesn’t name.
Grisham writes Trump would tell her to put the staffer ‘on TV. Keep her happy, promote her.’
Trump, a former reality TV star, consider being on TV a great compliment and hired some of his staff and lawyers based on their appearances on Fox News.
Grisham also reveals that on one Air Force One trip Trump asked that the staffer be brought to his cabin, saying: ‘Let’s bring her up here and look at her ass.’
She said after that she tried to keep the staffer off trips: ‘I needed to protect her and, frankly, the president as well.’
Melania’s ‘I Really Don’t Care, Do U?’ jacket remains shrouded in mystery
Later that year, Melania Trump would seemingly go rogue again when she wore a ‘I Really Don’t Care, Do U?’ Zara jacket on a trip to tour a Texas Health and Human Services facility where migrant children were being housed.
A handful of the children at the McAllen facility had been separated from their families due to the controversial Trump immigration policy.
Grisham said the first lady had purchased the $39 jacket herself – and Melania Trump never gave a solid explanation as to why she wore it.
She told Grisham that it was just a jacket, when they were trying to figure out damage control on the plane.
Upon arrival at the White House, the president told an aide that the first lady needed to come to the Oval Office.
Grisham said it was the first time she’d seen the president summon the first lady that way in front of staff.
He yelled and asked ‘what the [expletive] they thought they were doing, The Post said.
Trump then devised a plan and tweeted out that the message was meant for the ‘Fake News.’
The first lady continued to repeat that story in interviews – but the real reason she wore the jacket remains unknown.
Melania Trump bought the $39 ‘I Really Don’t Care, Do U?’ jacket from Zara and wore it on a trip to see facilities that housed migrant children in June 2018. Grisham said it was the president who came up with the narrative that the message was meant for the ‘fake news’ media
Trump wanted Grisham to evict the press and reenact his perfect phone call
During her time serving as White House press secretary, Trump asked Grisham to find a way to remove the press from the White House premises.
He also wanted her to re-enact his ‘perfect’ phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for them.
She revealed that a trip to North Korea inspired Trump to ask her to find ways he could evict the White House press corps from the James Brady briefing room – a place he frequently held news conferences and bantered with reporters.
‘I researched different places we could put them other than the press briefing room. Each time the president asked me about my progress on the matter, I let him know I was still working on options,’ Grisham wrote.
Grisham, who was notable for never holding a press briefing as White House press secretary, explains she didn’t do so out of fears of what Trump would ask her to say at the podium.
Trump’s first press secretary, Sean Spicer, famously argued Trump’s inauguration crowd was ‘the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration’ – claim that did not match side-by-side photos of Trump’s inauguration with Barack Obama’s and destroyed his credibility.
‘I knew that sooner or later the president would want me to tell the public something that was not true or that would make me sound like a lunatic,’ she noted.
She also detailed one of Trump’s more outlandish requests – that she appear before the press corps and reenact his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which led to his first impeachment.
She managed to avoid doing it.
Trump, himself, famously like to reenact the call by reliving what he and Zelensky said, using different tones of voices to make his point.
Trump’s mysterious medical procedure at Walter Reed was likely a colonoscopy
While Grisham didn’t name the procedure, the former Trump aide strongly hinted that what Trump went to Walter Reed for in November 2019 was a colonoscopy – without anesthesia.
In the book, Grisham described it as a ‘very common procedure’ where ‘a patient is sometimes put under.’
The reason for the secrecy, Grisham explained, was that Trump didn’t want to hand over power to Vice President Mike Pence, even for a short amount of time, because it would be ‘showing weakness.’
He also didn’t want to be ‘the butt of the joke,’ she wrote, on late-night TV.
On the day of Trump’s Walter Reed trip, Grisham as press secretary told reporters that Trump had traveled to the Bethesda, Maryland facility for a physical.
‘Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed,’ Grisham said.
Grisham expressed that the concealment was regrettable.
She noted in the book that Trump could have used his influence to demystify colonoscopies – and thus save lives.
‘But as with COVID, he was too wrapped up in his own ego and his own delusions about his invincibility,’ Grisham said.
White House staff called Ivanka ‘the princess’ and she and Jared tried to push their way into a meeting with the Queen

Aides to former President Donald Trump referred to his daughter Ivanka as ‘the princess,’ Grisham said.
Grisham wrote that Melania Trump also referred to Ivanka by the name.
Ivanka, who served as an unpaid senior advisor to the president, regularly referred to him as ‘my father’ in meetings, she writes. Ivanka sometimes used the term in public.
Grisham terms her husband, former White House aide Jared Kushner, ‘the Slim Reaper’ for getting involved in projects designated for others, she wrote.
Grisham also wrote that the power couple tried to get themselves into a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II during Trump’s visit to the UK in 2019.
Only the president and first lady attended.
It would have been a ‘wild breach of protocol,’ according to The Post.
Kushner and Ivanka Trump did attend a state dinner.
Grisham writes that the situation was resolved when they couldn’t fit into a presidential helicopter.
Team Trump claims book is another ‘pitiful attempt to cash in on his strength’
‘This book is another pitiful attempt to cash in on the President’s strength and sell lies about the Trump family, said Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington.
Harrington termed Grisham a ‘a disgruntled former employee’ – a term has applied in the past to aides who have written tell-alls.
She said the book’s publishers ‘should be ashamed of themselves for preying on desperate people who see the short term gain in writing a book full of falsehoods.’
Publisher Harper Collins calls the book ‘The most frank and intimate portrait of the Trump White House yet.’
Grisham was among the flurry of Trump officials who resigned from their posts on January 6, in the aftermath of the Capitol riot.
Trump went after Grisham personally in a statement released Tuesday morning.
‘Stephanie didn’t have what it takes and that was obvious from the beginning,’ Trump said. ‘She had big problems and we felt that she should work out those problems for herself. Now, like everyone else, she gets paid by a radical left-leaning publisher to say bad and untrue things.’
‘We and the MAGA movement are totally used to it. And someday in the not too distant future we will have our voice back and be treated fairly by the press,’ the ex-president added.
