After at least 12 audio recordings were seized from the office of Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen, the "Omarosa tapes" are the new hot-ticket surveillance cache-but unlike Cohen, Manigault Newman still has possession of her cell phone recordings, and she's supposedly using them to shop around her book, Unhinged, about her former boss.
Manigault-Newman developed a relationship with Trump during the taping of The Apprentice, where she was a contestant known for her back-stabbing ways. Omarosa also claims she heard Donald Trump use a couple of racial slurs in person as well.
The controversy created by Manigault Newman's tell-all, which comes out next week, will not be the first time the White House has been forced to contend with sensational claims in a book.
'Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole'.
While it's likely she and others will (continue to) try to discredit Omarosa, it's worth remembering that Omarosa was hired by Trump and paid the highest salary of any White House staff members in her job as assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison. She is now coming forward to corroborate some of these horrendous claims made by Arnold and others. The Washington Post reports that White House aides laughed at the allegation and called it untrue.
Manigault Newman, who is black, is set to release on Tuesday a tell-all book, "Unhinged", which details her time working for Trump during the 2016 campaign and eventual administration. F**ing F**P! Disloyal! Fucking G**-g**'.
"I'm in @Omarosa's book on page 149", Luntz tweeted.
"Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quoted the president as saying.
Earlier this week, the Daily Beast reported that Manigault Newman had recorded some of her interactions with the president in the White House. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.
"I saw him put a note in his mouth".
