Trump calls Omarosa a ‘dog’ as war over salacious memoir explodes

Trump calls Omarosa a ‘dog’ as war over salacious memoir explodes”

Ms. Manigault Newman - who first gained fame as a contestant on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice", and then secured a $180,000-a-year staff job at the White House - released a recording of a private conversation she had with the president after she was sacked.

Manigault Newman has released several audio recordings from her time as a Trump assistant at the White House, including one with the president in which he said nobody told him she had been fired.

Viewers also called out Omarosa, 44, for being "rude" to interviewer Savannah Guthrie, as the former Apprentice star told the host to "slow down" her fast paced questioning.

He said Trump was probably faking being incredulous when Manigault-Newman informed him she'd been fired.

But she was sacked by incoming chief of staff Johny Kelly during a closed-doors meeting in December 2017.

"They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he is", Manigault-Newman added, "how hard it is for him to process complex information".

She accepted that initially she had dismissed the claims.

Responding on NBC, Manigault Newman said, "I think it's sad that with all the things that's going on in the country that he would take time out to insult me and to insult my intelligence". I would rarely see her but heard really bad things.

"I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have", Trump tweeted Monday night.

There was some confusion over whether Manigault had actually heard him use the word on tape or if she was just told about him using it.

She added that the remarks were made in reference to Kwame Jackson, an African American contestant on NBC's show, "The Apprentice".

In another skirmish, Trump tweeted Monday that Manigault-Newman signed a non-disclosure agreement upon her exit from the White House.

The next morning, I immediately notified senior communications officials and a Trump family member of the same, only to discover the true nature of her departure was termination.

In the recording, which the Associated Press independently listened to, Kelly is heard saying he wants to talk with Manigault Newman about leaving the White House.

"Even if she didn't think that the president deserved better [than to have himself and Kelly taped] then certainly the American people do", she said.

A source told Hollywood Life that Melania uses fashion to voice her opinion and take subtle shots at Donald when they disagree on a matter.

Newman alleged the controversial billionaire asked if he could be sworn in as president using a copy of his book The Art Of The Deal instead of the Bible.

Omarosa Manigault Newman likes to be noticed and that she did during an August 13 appearance on The Today Show, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

She said she did not write this in her book because she heard the tape after her memoir was sent off for publication. "Absolutely not", she said.

On Monday, the former Apprentice contestant released what she claimed is a recording to a phone call between herself and the President the day after she was sacked from government.

Manigault Newman also accused Trump of using racial slurs against George Conway, who is half Filipino.

The Trump campaign is a private entity and could legitimately ask employees to sign such agreements.
