Trump’s hometown newspaper taunted Trump on its Friday cover with the headline “Pee Brain!” with yellow graphics alongside revelations from Comey’s new book.

Excerpts from Comey’s upcoming book were published by several news outlets on Thursday, with one excerpt saying that Trump asked Comey to probe one of the most salacious allegations included in the so-called Steele dossier.


The "golden showers" claim, which surfaced in the dossier of unverified opposition research by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, claims Trump ordered two prostitutes to urinate on a bed once used by the Obamas at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton.

Trump told Comey that he wanted an investigation to disprove the tape because the rumors bothered first lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpTrump Jr. to Dem Senator: 'You admitted to hitting your wife so hard it gave her a black eye!'

“I’m a germaphobe,” Trump told Comey during a phone call shortly before Trump’s inauguration, according to the excerpt. “There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.” 

“He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie,” Comey wrote, according to The Washington Post. “I said it was up to him.”

Comey's book will be released on Tuesday.
