Former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham's new book, I'll Take Your Questions Now, is revealing all sorts of secrets about the Trump administration. These secrets include one tidbit about a former Trump aide apparently dubbed the "Music Man."

That aide, one Max Miller—who happens to be Grisham's ex, was apparently called upon to play the former President's favorite show tunes to help him de-stress and calm down when upset or angry. These favorites evidently included the song "Memory" from "Cats."

The appellation, as well as Trump's apparent favorite show tune, caused quite a stir on Twitter.



It's not all fun and games—or music—when it comes to Miller, though. Many of the people who know him, both from his time in the White House and his youth in the affluent suburb of Cleveland called Shaker Heights, have said that Miller is a bully who is quick to anger himself.

Miller, who recently announced that he is running for Congress in Ohio's 16th district -- with Trump's endorsement, has also been accused of laying hands on Stephanie Grisham. This incident, in which he allegedly pushed her up against a wall and slapped her in the face, was apparently the cause of the end of their relationship.

Despite the allegations, some of which came from people who were granted anonymity by the courts because they feared retaliation by Miller, he has Trump's full support in his campaign to be the Representative for Ohio's 16th congressional district.

He sang Miller's praises at a recent rally in Ohio.

"A really great guy, Max Miller. A passion—he's got a passion for this country like you wouldn't believe. Max, come on up and say hello."

He has also referred to Miller as "an incredible patriot" and "a wonderful person."

It remains to be seen whether Trump's support of "Music Man" helps or hurts Miller's chances at election.
