Omarosa releases purported recording of her White House firing

LIAR, LIAR: Did Omarosa Falsely Claim She Heard Donald Trump Drop the N-Word? Trump has choice words for ex-aide Omarosa
Ivan Hill | 12 August, 2018, 22:15

As part of her appearance on NBC's Meet The Press, Omarosa Manigualt, former aide to President Donald Trump, shared a secret recording she made of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her.

"The first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those very bad things about this president are in this book", she said, noting Manigault Newman "is somebody who gave a glowing appraisal of Donald Trump, the businessman, the star of the The Apprentice, the candidate and, indeed, the president of the United States".

In the book, Manigault Newman claims without evidence that tapes exist of Trump using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set.

"Hearing it changed everything for me", she told NPR reporter Rachel Martin. According to a published report by the media organization, when asked to clear up the discrepancy, the former White House aide said Martin must not have read the book.

In her interview with Todd, Manigault Newman said she considered the offer an attempt to buy her silence. She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents. He says if she chooses the later it will create difficulty with respect to her reputation. "No one. So I protected myself and I'm going to tell you, I'm so glad I did". Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

After tests, scientists at the UK's military research lab, Porton Down, found the couple had also been exposed to Novichok. These include a potential moratorium on national carrier flights to the United States and an nearly complete import ban.


Manigault Newman also describes Trump as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight".

The White House has defended the president, slamming the former staffer's book as being "riddled with lies and false accusations".

Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel suggested that Manigault Newman should be prosecuted if she's found to have broken any federal laws for recording a conversation in the Situation Room.

But Newman pushed back against her critics by arguing that she can substantiate her claims in the book.

Later, inside his club, where he met with Bikers for Trump - who wore Make America Great Again hats and leather jackets - and other supporters, the president responded with a dramatic flourish to a question about whether he felt betrayed by the Manigault Newman - one of the first White House hires, who once enjoyed unfettered access to him in the Oval Office. Trump called Manigault Newman a "lowlife" Saturday.
