Frank Luntz: Omarosa's Lying About Me Hearing 'Trump Use the N-Word'

Omarosa Manigualt, the former "Apprentice" contestant who served as a White House adviser previous year, is said to have leveled explosive accusations against President Donald Trump in her new book, claiming he used racial slurs toward African-Americans and Filipinos. She says when she turned down the offer, she received letters from Trump's lawyers telling her to stay quiet.

Her tumultuous time in the White House and very public break with Trump have caused many critics to question her credibility and the veracity of her claims.

While she does not write that she herself heard Trump use the taboo language, she cites three unnamed sources, and adds that she experienced "truly appalling things" with Trump, according to The Guardian, which obtained a copy of the book ahead of its publication next week. Being out for no one and nothing but yourself is a requirement for working in the Trump White House. Later, a source from The Apprentice contacted her, claiming to be in possession of the tape. Sure. However, when it comes to dishonest White House castoffs, I'd personally prefer her scorched-Earth approach over the Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, and Reince Priebus style of continually carrying Trump's water long after the boss continually humiliated them or tossed them aside.


Trump has faced allegations of racism and misogyny for years. "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo".

The White House issued a blistering statement Friday on the impending release of Manigault Newman's "Unhinged", calling her a "disgruntled former White House employee" who is "trying to profit off of these false attacks". "Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quotes the president as saying.

After she left the White House, Manigault Newman said on "Good Morning America": "As the only African American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people".


"I saw him put a note in his mouth".

Other unverified details from Omarosa's book include Trump installing a tanning bed in the White House and her walking in on a meeting between the president and his since estranged consigliere Michael Cohen that ended with Trump chewing and swallowing a piece of paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

Earlier this week, the Daily Beast reported that Manigault Newman had recorded some of her interactions with the president in the White House.
