Whoever thought the way to pay off non-politician type people who hang around politics with tell-all books must be a fiction writer at heart. What is being leaked by former Trump staff member Omarosa Manigault-Newman is starting to really sound suspect. She’s now attempting to paint President Donald Trump as a racist by claiming he used the n-word on a regular basis while filming “The Apprentice.”
And there’s a tape.
“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,” Omarosa, who served as the communications director for the White House’s office of public liaison, writes in her memoir.
“It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she wrote. “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.”
Omarosa is not the first to accuse President Trump of being a racist or even of using rough language, but she is one of the few who is going to make a profit off of her allegations. What she, and those who fall for this stuff, do not realize is that if it really happened, and there was a tape, it would have been leaked during the campaign. Not only that, gag orders or not, word would have leaked out from the set of the show that this was going on.
