Drudge had the latest “bombshell” drama, courtesy of former Trump White House employee and associate Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who has a new book out that purportedly describes her experiences with President Trump. Entitled “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” she claims to have secretly recorded conversations with the President.
Donald Trump is a “racist” who has used the “N-word” repeatedly, Omarosa Manigault Newman, once the most prominent African American in the White House, claims in a searing memoir.
The future US president was caught on mic uttering the taboo racial slur “multiple times” during the making of his reality TV show The Apprentice and there is a tape to prove it, according to Manigault Newman, citing three unnamed sources.
Trump has been haunted from around the time of his election in 2016 by allegations that outtakes from the reality TV show exist in which he is heard saying the N-word and using other offensive language.
At the time, she writes, she felt a “growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular.”
Recalling her sudden and unceremonious departure, she writes: “It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist. 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.”
Unfortunately, the book is riddled with inaccuracies, innuendo from Tom Arnold, and Michael Wolff style sourcing. Frank Luntz, who is quoted in the book as having heard Trump using racially charged language, flat out denies ever hearing any terms. He also attacked Omarosa for her “shoddy work” in not even making an effort to confirm any of her sources:
I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word. Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify.
Just reading some of the descriptions of the book, the entire thing sounds like a bitter ex employee looking to make a quick buck from gullible people:
In another damning passage, she describes his “broken outlook” and how “the bricks in his racist wall kept getting higher”, wondering if he did “want to start a race war”. She adds: “The only other explanation was that his mental state was so deteriorated that the filter between the worst impulses of his mind and his mouth were completely gone.”
That is Bill Kristol levels of hyperbole. Any individual that reaches that level of cartoonish caricature in describing President Trump has lost it.
