Omarosa’s White House recordings fuel Trump woes

Diego Corredor  MediaPunch  IPx

It's certainly not a wholly truthful one, nor - for those who've been paying attention - is it a particularly surprising one. "You know they run a big operation but I didn't know it".

We've been here before. But he clearly thought highly enough of her to give her a top post at his White House following his election. There was James Comey's A Higher Loyalty, an earnest, bitter, rather disingenuous image rehabilitation project disguised as a leadership manifesto.

The President's tweet may likely draw more attention to the media circus surrounding Omarosa, as well as the suitability of tweeting about ex-employees alongside matters of defense or foreign policy.

On December 12, 2017, at approximately 11:30PM (EST) - a date I now know to be the evening Omarosa was relieved of her official duties by General Kelly - I received a telephone call from her informing me that she had personally heard a second-hand recording of President Trump using the "N-word" in a derogatory fashion.

She proceeded to tell me the full name of the individual who played this second-hand tape for her, from whom the primary audio tape had originated, as well as the specific context of the President's usage of this term and to whom the derogatory term was allegedly directed.

"She wore that jacket to hurt Trump", Manigault Newman writes. The problem? Many senior advisors were not aware of the photoshoot, and they ultimately banned her from sharing any of the images.

According to Manigault-Newman, she was "terrified" after her conversation with Kelly, who she says threatened her future. Here was what would hurl her memoir toward legitimacy. Like her old boss, she "hears" many things. Trump has denied having an affair. "So yes, I had to protect myself and I have no regret about it", Manigault Newman told host Chuck Todd.

Trump has criticized other people as "dogs" or "like a dog" in the past.

Mendocino Complex Aug. 13: Ranch Fire continues to grow towards Pillsbury
The Holy Fire named for Holy Jim Canyon, where it began Monday, grew to almost 33 sq miles (85 sq km) by Saturday morning. Crews were also working on the 35-hectare Devil Creek Fire, which is posing unique challenges to firefighters.

Trump on Monday denied the existence of any such tape, citing the show's former producer, Mark Burnett.

President Trump tweeted Monday night that Mark Burnett, the producer of The Apprentice, "called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".

Omarosa served as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liasion between January 2017 and 2018, when she was sacked.

That this is an effort in rebranding is hardly subtle, but Unhinged is not an outrageous retaliation, a disgruntled former staffer's hyperbolic rantings. The book called, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House", will be released Tuesday.

Manigault-Newman was hesitant to answer questions directly related to her personal actions, instead focusing on the actions of Kelly and the Trump administration.

Manigault Newman hasn't proved her claim, but the Trump team has proved that it protests too much - and that it doesn't have its story straight.

The ultimate tragedy of Unhinged is, accordingly, what a unusual beast it is: a brew of genuine attempted atonement, cynical media plays, and gratuitous gossipping. "If anyone doubted whether this president was running a reality-TV-show type of administration, they need not look further than the president's relationship with Omarosa". But she can't go there. Variously styled as the vice chair of Trump's National Diversity Coalition and the director of African-American outreach - and casting herself as Trump's "Valerie Jarrett" - Manigault Newman fiercely defended Trump against accusations that he was racist and sexist. I have no connections to anyone at "Celebrity Apprentice", other than Omarosa.
