The Trump White House may (or may not according to her) have fired Omarosa, but she is still looking to get paid.
Omarosa Manigault-Newman has been hitting the campaign trail to sell her tell-all book UNHINGED. Last week, Omarosa made headlines when an excerpt of the book was leaked in which the former reality TV star turned pastor turned former White House aide said she detected a “mental decline” President Trump saying after one TV interview, “Donald rambled. He spoke gibberish. He contradicted himself from one sentence to the next,” We didn’t have to work in the White House for that revelation Omarosa, just read the man’s daily tweets. The excerpt wasn’t exactly a bombshell and a lot of others probably dismissed it as hype to sell books.
This week Omarosa is doubling down on the hype and dropping tapes of secretly recorded audio of Trump as president. According to the Daily Beast, “Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell The Daily Beast that Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the infamous former Apprentice star who followed Trump to the White House, secretly recorded conversations with the president—conversations she has since leveraged while shopping her forthcoming “tell-all” book, bluntly titled UNHINGED.”
The article goes on to say the Omarosa recordings were rumored for months and that “One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump.”
So does Omarosa really have anything? Some of the recordings are said to be pretty anodyne, typical day at work conversations. For all we know, the tapes are just recordings of Trump making his daily KFC bucket of chicken order. It’s hard to know. Still, whether you like her or not, you have to admit Omarosa is pretty cagey. Even if there are no major bombshells on those tapes, Omarosa will spin it until she hears ‘ca-ching’. On the other hand, she did also issue Trump that ominous warning…to come clean or something like that. Implication being either you tell it…or I will.
We’ve already seen how much Trump hates being taped by people he considers loyalists like lawyer turned canary Michael Cohen who released audio of the president discussing paying off a woman he allegedly had an affair with. Omarosa wasn’t a fixer like Cohen, but she was part of the inner circle and could have some damaging recordings also. Wow, tapes are dropping around this administration quicker than at Bad Boy, Def Jam or Death Row records.
Pretty sure if Omarosa has anything, we’ll know more about it over the next week or so. Her book hits stores on August 14. If you can’t wait and want to read more now The Daily Beast has a page from the book that you can read.
Or are you like much of America, just kind of tired of Trump and have intentions of reading Omarosa’s book or any book about this administration?
