President Trump And Ms. Omaraso Deserve Each Other But Lordy, There Are Those Tapes

Omarosa

I’ve resisted posting anything about the republican President Donald Trump’s former White House aide and reality TV star, including “The Apprentice,”  Omarosa Manigault Newman.

I put her credibility on a par with that of the president. What I can say with certainty, is that Omarosa will be selling a lot of copies of her book “Unhinged,” and that the President and her are at the same level of where neither can be shamed.

But Lordy, there are those tape recordings.

UPDATE 8/14/18: President Trump tweeted that that his former advisor. Omaraso was a dog; the president’s spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders admitted that she cannot claim that the president never said the “N” word; and Ms. Omaraso is claiming that President Trump had knowledge in real time about Russia’s involvement in 2016 US elections.

As per the 8/13/18 Guardian report:

  • ‘She was vicious, but not smart,’ Trump tweets about ex-aide
  • President rejects claim he used racial slur, saying word ‘not in my vocabulary’

“Donald Trump has hit back at his former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman after she released tapes of secretly recorded White House conversations, including one in which the president appeared to express surprise that she had been fired from his administration.”

“Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will,” Trump tweeted on Monday, admitting that his response to her claims were “not presidential”.

“She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard….”

“Manigault Newman, a former Apprentice reality TV star who became the most prominent African American in the Trump White House, has been promoting her new book Unhinged, which offers a scathing account of life in the West Wing.”

“The memoir claims Trump is a “racist” who has used the “N-word”, alleging he was caught on mic uttering the slur “multiple times” during the making of his reality TV show The Apprentice. In a series of tweets Monday night, the president hit back at those claims, too, saying: “There are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word … I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have.”

“On Monday, Manigault Newman released an apparent recording of an interaction with Trump in 2017 after she was dismissed from the White House.”

“Omarosa? Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” Trump says on the tape played on NBC’s Today show on Monday.

While I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!

“The audio follows other recordings released on Sunday, which she claimed she made when the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, called her into the Situation Room to fire her.”

Here’s the rest of the story…
On August 13, 2018, Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post penned the following op-ed piece, “Of course Omarosa has tapes
Excerpts:

“It’s hard to take Omarosa Manigault Newman’s word for anything. But Lordy, she has tapes, and they offer vivid proof that Donald Trump’s White House is part clown show, part nest of vipers.”

“Omarosa achieved single-name fame as a contestant on Trump’s show “The Apprentice,” where she performed with Shakespearean villainy — lying, cheating, backstabbing, viciously advancing her own interests and sabotaging her rivals. Trump evidently found all of this admirable, because he insisted on bringing her into his administration as a top-level adviser despite her utter lack of experience and qualifications. They deserve each other.”

“It is no surprise that she wrote a tell-all book after being fired. It’s shocking, however, that she managed to secretly record her dismissal by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly — an encounter that took place in the Situation Room, meant to be a super-secure bunker where the nation’s most closely guarded secrets can safely be discussed.”

“Omarosa’s recording of part of that meeting was aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” In it, Kelly is heard making what sounds very much like a threat:”

“I think it’s important to understand that if we make this a friendly departure, we can all be, you know, we can look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation. And then you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation.”

“If that wasn’t clear enough, Omarosa subsequently received a generous offer. She could receive $15,000 a month to perform vaguely defined duties for Trump’s reelection campaign. But she would have to sign a nondisclosure and nondisparagement agreement pledging not to say detrimental things about President Trump, Vice President Pence or their family members.”

“She declined the offer but kept the documents she was asked to sign — and showed them to The Post last week.”

“On Monday, appearing on the “Today” show, she revealeda recording of a phone call she said she received from Trump the day after she was fired. “Omarosa, what’s going on?” Trump is heard to ask. “I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving. What happened?”

“When she tells him she was axed, Trump claims ignorance. “Nobody even told me about it,” he says. “You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. Goddammit. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

“Shortly after that tape was aired, Trump lashed out on Twitter:”

“Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me — until she got fired!”

  1. Like you, I have tried to ignore the Omarosa situation, or at least not write about it, for she is a piece of work … a lowlife if ever there was one. I almost did a post on her when she first went to work at the White House, but it made me sick, so I trashed it. I’m fairly certain that much of what she says about Trump, however, is true, but not likely to make a bit of difference to his followers. Amazing how quickly our government has turned into a gossipy, trashy place. Your last sentence says it all … “I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me …” That is the only criteria, it would seem, for a job in the White House. Trump and Omarosa truly DO deserve each other, but the sad thing is that we didn’t deserve either of them!

    Hugs!!!

    • Dear Jill,

      It amazes me how President Trump keeps complaining about Ms .Omarosa’s lack of integrity and credibility. Talk about calling the kettle black.

      If you invite a snake into your house, expect to get bitten. It turns out that Ms. Omarosa bites hard. I’m listening to Sarah Huckabee Sanders complaining about her lack of integrity.

      Which planet are we on?

      As always, thanks a million for all of your support and for this reblog.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Ha ha … yes, for Trump to even say the words “integrity” or “credibility” is a supreme joke!!! He wouldn’t know the truth if it swatted him on the posterior!!!

        I think, my friend, that we are on the same planet, but that it has turned upside-down! I’m not sure when this happened, but possibly on the night of 08 November 2016? I am still hoping to wake up one morning and find it was all a horrible dream, but that Obama is still president and all is well with the world!

        Hugs!!!!

  2. Gronda, I stayed away from specific reference to this story, choosing an overarching post on the high amount of turnover in this White House, which dwarfs that under the five previous Presidents.

    Although, neither person has huge credibility, what Omarosa is sharing is not inconsistent with what others have shared – toxic environment and low morale leads. The high turnover is consistent with this. Yet, while Omorosa is not hugely credible, no one lies like Donald Trump. And, as you said, she had those tapes, which worry many. She already caught two former colleagues in a lie this morning as they did have a conversation about Trump’s racist language. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      None of us has the stomach for Ms. Omarosa but it is unlikely that a person of integrity would be the one to do him in. There is that saying, beware of a woman scorned. She is so much like President Trump that you have to know that she planned this revenge. Only an opportunist at her level would have had the chutzpah to tape General Kelly in the Situation Room.

      Frankly, they both asked for this.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Gronda, Omarosa had a good quote this morning in her CBS Morning News – In Trump world everyone lies. They say something one day and change their mind the next day.

        The data supports this contention moreso than it does not. I also like that he hired this “low-life” and “dog” and thought she was wonderful when she said nice things about Trump – the true litmus test for the President. Keith

  3. Reblogged this on Filosofa's Word and commented:
    There are a few topics I simply don’t have the stomach for, and Omarosa Manigault is one of them. I am thrilled, therefore, that Gronda covered it so well that I don’t need to! Omarosa, not much better than Trump, has nonetheless nailed him. But will it make a difference to his supporters? Doubtful. Thank you so much, Gronda, for doing what I couldn’t and for allowing me to share your work!

    • If someone fires me and offers to pay me hush money in order to prevent me from exposing a wrong they had committed, then I am doing a grave disservice to my fellow citizens who might become the next victims of another wrong committed by this person. Such silencing of the truth is bad enough in our private lives, but it is completely unacceptable in our public lives and especially so when it involves the President of the United States. If we Americans really want to rid our social institutions of corruption, then we as individuals must take principled stands against it. Had more people stood up to Trump before, maybe he never would’ve been elected or even ran for political office. This kind of personal responsibility is imperative for a just society.

      • Dear Robert A. Vella,

        No decent, honorable person with any conscience would ever work for the likes of President Trump, in a position not pertinent to world affairs and foreign policy. Personally, I couldn’t sleep at night.

        That’s why I’m incredulous when the White House staffers’ challenge the integrity and credibility of Omarosa, when they are woefully deficient themselves in this area.

        I do not consider her to be credible but if she has hard evidence, I don’t care.

        Hugs, Gronda
