Omarosa Manigault Newman continued her irritating, self-serving and borderline vomit-inducing media blitz on Monday morning.
The former Apprentice contestant, who managed to land a role as a White House advisor simply because she was... well... she was a former Apprentice contestant, stopped by Meet the Press this weekend and dropped a rather huge bombshell.
It turns out Omarosa recorded Chief of Staff John Kelly's firing of her in the Situation Room, releasing the tape to the public in order to save her reputation.
(Note to Omerosa: It's WAY too late for that.)
And while the public continues to digest this stunning breach of national security, Omarosa appeared as a guest on The Today Show on Monday in order to promote her book about her time in the administration.
Asked by Savannah Guthrie when she thinks the President "lies often," Omarosa replied “Oh absolutely, in fact ...”
“How long have you known that?” Guthrie jumped in to inquire, to which Omarosa replied:
“There was a report that said that he lied almost 4,000 lies in the last..."
And then Guthrie pressed again: “Have you known that he is a liar as you say?”
Manigault Newman answered, “Well, absolutely.”
“Why did you work for him?” Guthrie fired back, barely giving Omarosa time to respond.
“Savannah, slow down. I’m gonna your question," Omarosa said. "Don’t worry, I’m here. I’ve got all the time you need. You don’t have to ask 10 questions in one second. It’s okay.”
Gurthie was trying to pin Omarosa down in order to basically expose her at no better than Trump, as someone happy to lie and manipulate and backstab...
... until she became the person who was (allegedly) lied to, manipulated and stabbed in the back.
Omarosa goes on to say in the video featured here that she never expected Trump to "lie to the country" as he has so often done, prior to teasing the eventual release of more tapes.
These tapes, she says, feature Trump using racial epithets during his time on The Apprentice.
“He was talking about some African Americans in the production during the course of The Apprentice, which is unacceptable," she said on Today, adding:
"Here’s the thing. Why don’t we ask Donald Trump a simple question - ‘Donald J. Trump, have you ever used the N-word?’ = and allow him to respond?
"Because the people who have this tape intend to release this tape.”
As you might expect, President Trump had a few things to say in response to Omarosa's accusations:
You know people say certain situations are win-win?
This would be a prime example of something that is lose-lose.
