CNN’s Gloria Borger: Trump and Omarosa Are ‘Two Peas in a Pod,’ ‘They Deserve Each Other’

CNN’s Gloria Borger appeared on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin today as part of a panel discussion following the White House press briefing. On the topic of Omarosa Manigault and her credibility and allegations, Borger effectively described how Donald Trump and Omarosa are a perfect match who “deserve each other.” At the beginning of the discussion, host Baldwin played a clip of Omarosa saying that the President isn’t fit for the office he holds. It was on that point that Borger began her argument. “Just listening to that video you just played of Omarosa saying Donald Trump shouldn’t be president of the United States, having listened to Omarosa for years talk about how marvelous and how wonderful Donald Trump is, it makes me think that they’re––they deserve each other,” she said. “They are very much the same people in many ways.” She went on then to describe the Continue reading "CNN’s Gloria Borger: Trump and Omarosa Are ‘Two Peas in a Pod,’ ‘They Deserve Each Other’"

Outnumbered Hits Trump For Insulting Omarosa in ‘Terrible’ Tweets: ‘Why Use That Kind of Language?’

On Outnumbered on Fox News Tuesday, Tweets from President Donald Trump referring to former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog” and other insults were, for a moment, the object of criticism. “My word,” said host Melissa Francis of the tweets. “What a terrible idea.” Francis wondered at the President’s word choice. “Why use that kind of language?” Co-host Lisa Boothe rushed the conversation away from Trump’s tweeted insults and toward their own takedown of the ex-Trump insider. After several rounds of conversation on Omarosa’s lack of credibility, an argument from Jessica Tarlov that Trump voters won’t be swayed by any racism on his part, and a good deal of bashing of the media for even covering the “clickbait” story of literal audio recordings of the President of the United States and top officials like Chief of Staff John Kelly and Trump campaign Senior Adviser Continue reading "Outnumbered Hits Trump For Insulting Omarosa in ‘Terrible’ Tweets: ‘Why Use That Kind of Language?’"

Soledad O’Brien Burns CNN For Calling Out White House Lack of Diversity: Where’s CNN’s Senior Black Staff?

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien landed a solid hit on the network Monday, after the CNN Politics Twitter account shared a story about diversity within the Trump administration. O’Brien turned the question back on CNN regarding their own leadership. ABC’s Jon Karl asked White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway about the topic on Sunday, following President Trump‘s public feud with former confidante Omarosa Manigault. “Who is the most prominent, high level adviser to the president on the West Wing staff right now?” he asked. Conway did not have a name. The CNN Politics tweet on the subject said “President Donald Trump has no black people in the senior White House staff.” O’Brien turned it back and asked about CNN’s own diversity in leadership roles, and for that matter in cable news overall.

Fox News’ Outnumbered Hits Trump For Hiring Omarosa: ‘Epic Bad Judgment’

Fox News’s Outnumbered scolded President Donald Trump for hiring Omarosa Manigault Newman, and mocked his claims in a phone call to the former White House official that he hadn’t heard she had been fired. In a tape, secretly recorded by Manigault Newman and aired on NBC’s Today show this morning, Trump is heard claiming he was unaware that the Apprentice star turned White House official had been fired the day before by Chief of Staff John Kelly. “Riiiiight,” Fox’s Lisa Kennedy said, after airing the tape of Trump. “I don’t know if you watched the seasons of The Apprentice that she was on. Very entertaining and made a name for herself by being one of the first reality villains,” Kennedy said. “So I actually am maybe the least surprised person in the world that she took a recording device into that highly secured room.” Fox News host Continue reading "Fox News’ Outnumbered Hits Trump For Hiring Omarosa: ‘Epic Bad Judgment’"

Omarosa Says There Are More Tapes: ‘I’m Expecting That They’re Going to Retaliate’

Omarosa Manigault Newman appeared on MSNBC’s Velshi & Ruhle Monday — after President Donald Trump‘s brutal Twitter attack on her — and said she expected the White House to “retaliate” against her. MSNBC first aired the full audio recording of Manigault Newman’s firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, in which he cited “integrity issues,” and asked for a “friendly departure.” That’s after she released another tape on the Today show Monday morning of Trump expressing shock that she had been fired by Kelly. When asked by MSNBC’s Ali Velshi if she had more recordings, Manigault Newman replied, “Absolutely.” “Are you going to release them?” Velshi followed up. “I don’t know,” she replied. “I’m going to watch to see. They’ve been threatening legal action, they’re trying to figure out how to stop me, they’re trying to penalize me because I would not accept Continue reading "Omarosa Says There Are More Tapes: ‘I’m Expecting That They’re Going to Retaliate’"

Giuliani Blasts Omarosa: ‘What Kind of Ingratitude Is This?’

President Donald Trump‘s lawyer Rudy Giuliani also decided to weigh in on Omarosa Manigault this morning. After saying there should be an investigation of Robert Mueller and James Comey, among others, he was asked to weigh in on Manigault taping John Kelly in the Situation Room. He said she’s violating “national security regulations” before adding that what she’s doing now is a violation of trust:

Trump’s Attacks on Ex-White House Official ‘Wacky Omarosa’ Blows Up Twitter: ‘We Asked For This’

It was inevitable: as Omarosa Manigault made the rounds on television trashing her former White House boss Donald Trump, the president took to Twitter to fire back in equally personal and bitter terms. The series of tweets aimed at Manigault was brutal — if predictably Trumpian — replete with insults, embarrassing anecdotes, and a nice revelation of his own incompetence.
