Omarosa Secretly Taped ‘Nearly Every Conversation’ She Ever Had at White House

It wasn’t just the few conversations that she brought to news networks when her book came out that are in Omarosa’s stash of secretly recorded conversations from the White House, apparently. According to Axios, she recorded “nearly every conversation” that she was part of during her time there, especially those with “all of the Trumps,” it seems. Citing a source “who watched her make many of the tapes,” Axios explains that Omarosa used her personal cell phone to record the conversations, including those in the supposedly secure Situation Room in the White House. The source says that Omarosa would keep both her government phone and her personal phone on her person, and use the work phone for conducting business while recording with her own. “She would often press “record” on her personal phone — which she carried in her pocket or in a small purse,” the report says. And more. Continue reading "Omarosa Secretly Taped ‘Nearly Every Conversation’ She Ever Had at White House"

Omarosa Rails Against Trump Administration’s Lack of Diversity: It is Actually the White House

Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman believes Donald Trump‘s “White House” is “actually the white house,” since “there is no diversity. “ Omarosa, who made the comments while appearing on SiriusXM’s The Press Pool with host Julie Mason, has spent the last couple of weeks on an all-out crusade against Trump and his administration, as her new tell-all book discusses her mostly negative experience serving in the White House. “I was forced to go and do this interview after because they needed a black face from the administration,” Omarosa said of media appearances just after the Charlottesville, Virginia white supremacist rally last year. “I did an interview on the day after his first remarks, and then, right after I went out there to defend him, the next day, Julie, he equivocated both sides, saying that there were good people on both sides.” “Do you know how humiliating it Continue reading "Omarosa Rails Against Trump Administration’s Lack of Diversity: It is Actually the White House"

On MSNBC, Omarosa Says Trump ‘Wants to Start a Race War’

On Sunday, former top White House aide and reality star villain Omarosa Manigault ripped into President Donald Trump and accused him of wanting to start a race war. It happened during a conversation with Rev. Al Sharpton on MSBNC. “You know, when he called me that dog, I thought it was clear evidence, one, that he has absolutely no respect for the presidency,” Manigault said, referring to Trump’s tweet that came in the wake of Manigault’s new book UNHINGED. She continued on: “It was such a vulgar slur, and can you just imagine if he would say that publicly what is he saying about me and other Continue reading "On MSNBC, Omarosa Says Trump ‘Wants to Start a Race War’"

Ben Shapiro and Former Clinton Staffer Adrienne Elrod Agree On This Point About Media Coverage of Omarosa

On Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz on Sunday, host Howard Kurtz spoke with conservative author and Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, USC Annenberg Media Center Director Christina Bellantoni, and former Director of Strategic Communications for Hillary Clinton, President of Elrod Strategies Adrienne Elrod about Omarosa Manigault Newman, her alleged “n-word” recording of President Donald Trump, and the media coverage associated with it. The panel of guests don’t seem like they’d have a lot to agree on, but in the case of Omarosa, they had several points of common ground. Especially, and importantly, the media’s week-long coverage of a tape that has not yet been played or heard, nor for which there has yet been any evidence offered: the infamous alleged n-word tape. The two general points being discussed, and they commingled, was whether the media gave too much coverage to Omarosa and why, and whether Continue reading "Ben Shapiro and Former Clinton Staffer Adrienne Elrod Agree On This Point About Media Coverage of Omarosa"

Ivanka Trump is Reportedly Not at all Thrilled With Getting the SNL Treatment

Last year, Saturday Night Live skewered Ivanka Trump with a perfume sketch called “Complicit.” Yet the senior Trump aide and First Daughter was apparently not at all impressed, at least if Omarosa Manigault is to be believed. In an excerpt of Manigault’s new book UNHINGED obtained by People, Manigault claims Ms. Trump could not stop kvetching about it. “At the senior staff meeting, Ivanka couldn’t stop bemoaning it, how offensive it was, how ridiculous it was,” Manigault wrote. “We’d all been subject to SNL attacks … We’d all been hit, many of us in that same week’s show. But Ivanka would not stop talking about being ribbed. Like her father, Ivanka was thin-skinned and could not seem to take a joke.” SNL’s faux perfume ad features a narrator saying, “She’s powerful. She’s … complicit…She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing. Complicit. Continue reading "Ivanka Trump is Reportedly Not at all Thrilled With Getting the SNL Treatment"

Trump Reportedly Had a ‘F*cking Weird’ Debate With Vietnam Vets Over Napalm and Agent Orange

The stories coming out of the White House just keep getting stranger and this one is no exception. And yes, it involves Omarosa Manigault. Back while President Donald Trump and Manigault were on speaking terms, Trump sent her to a White House meeting with veterans. The veterans saw having a former Apprentice contestant there, in lieu of the commander in chief, as a slap in the face. So then, a second meeting was scheduled which Trump attended. That meeting bizarrely turned the conversation to napalm and Agent Orange. The meeting took place on March 17, 2017. The Daily Beast reports that it went downhill fast.
After some vocal public shaming from military veterans and advocates, Trump, accompanied by Manigault-Newman, met with principals from various vets organizations in the Roosevelt Room on March 17, 2017. The event nearly degenerated into a uniquely Trumpian trainwreck. During this White House meeting, certain details Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Had a ‘F*cking Weird’ Debate With Vietnam Vets Over Napalm and Agent Orange"

Omarosa Struggles to Explain Why She Stayed on Team Trump Despite His Alleged Use of N-Word

A TMZ interview with Omarosa Manigault got abruptly cut off when talked turned to why the former White House aide did not stop supporting Trump and remained on his team after she realized he had made a racial slur. It started after Harvey Levin pressed Manigault on why, if she believed that Trump had used a racist slur, why she remained Trump’s “fiercest supporter.” “When you said ‘that’s not true’ suggesting very clearly that you believed that Donald Trump had used the n-word, that was at a time that you were his fiercest supporter, with the knowledge that you believed, based on the tape that you recorded, that you believed that Donald Trump used the N-word,” Levin said. “That’s stunning.” Manigault said that after she had that conversation she was “on a mission” to find out if, in fact, it was true that Trump had made a racist Continue reading "Omarosa Struggles to Explain Why She Stayed on Team Trump Despite His Alleged Use of N-Word"
