Donald Trump is a racist. He has been an open and unrepentant racist for decades. However, thanks to the white supremacists of America and a fluke of the Electoral College, Trump’s racism did not stop him from being elected President. It also didn’t stop Omarosa Manigault-Newman from defending The Donald for years on end.
Then again, Omarosa has always been a shameless opportunist, and she’ll get in bed with anyone — even a racist while she is a black woman — to get what she wants. But now, Omarosa is out of the White House peddling a new book, and she has dropped Team Trump like a hot potato.
In the book, and in television interviews, Omarosa claims she has heard tapes of Trump dropping N-bombs, and describes him as a “racist,” a “misogynist,” and a “bigot.” Welcome to the reality we’ve all seen for years, Omarosa. Forever the drama queen, the former Apprentice contestant turned Trump buddy is now locked in an open feud with the Trump White House.
Appearing on ABC’s This Week, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said of the situation:
The first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those awful things about this president are in this book. And I think that Omarosa unfortunately has undercut her own credibility. I have never a single time heard him use a racial slur about anyone,” she continued. “I also never heard Omarosa complain that he had done that. And so the only thing that’s changed is that she’s now selling books.”
Omarosa was on NBC’s Meet the Press hawking books and told host Chuck Todd about her revelations that Trump is a racist, despite how much she defended the orange man in the past. She at least took a bit of responsibility. That’s something I guess. She told Chuck Todd:
I was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation.”
“They continue to deceive this nation with how mentally declined he is, how difficult it is for him to process complex information, how he is not engaged in some of the most important decisions that impacts our country.”
The book, entitled Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House, supposedly will expose the dysfunction within the current administration, as well as the bigotry. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says of the book:
Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations.”
Kellyanne Conway told Fox News Sunday that Trump feels “betrayed” by Omarosa, and Trump himself called his longtime friend a “lowlife.” Conway went on to say:
I think he believes it’s a low blow to write a book riddled with lies and accusations and insinuations, whether 30 pieces of silver or a seven-figure book, for you, your publicists, your ghostwriters, all that’s changed was this book deal and her being fired.”
Of course, the real kicker is that Omarosa, as White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her from the Situation Room, decided to take a recording device into a secure area and record the conversation. She says of the decision to violate security protocols and do that:
This is a White House where everybody lies. If I didn’t have this recording, listen, people would still think that I was trying to set off alarms. So yes I had to protect myself and I have no regret about it.”
Well, we’ll see what she has to say. But Omarosa girl, you have been a complete traitor to Black America for far too long. Don’t expect a warm welcome back into the fold just because you turned tail on Trump when it was opportune for you. We’ve got your number, and there’s one thing the Trump White House is right about: You have no credibility.
