Trump Hits Back Hard at Omarosa

Aug 14, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Donald Trump is taking no prisoners in his war with former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman, referring to her in a tweet sent out this morning as a “dog” and a “crazed, crying lowlife.” You can see his tweet below.

In a piece on the CNN website, Veronica Stracqualursi notes that Manigault Newman is “the only African-American to have served in a senior role in the White House.”

The piece adds: “Referring to an African-American woman as an animal is at best a sharp departure from the language typically employed by Presidents and at worst a reference that traffics in sexual and racial imagery. Trump has long denied being racist and has dismissed a claim made by Manigault Newman that he used a racial slur on the set of ‘The Apprentice.’ He’s also invoked ‘dog’ to insult non-African-Americans — including Mitt Romney and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.”

Trump’s campaign organization, meanwhile, has taken legal action against Manigault Newman. ABC News quotes a statement from a senior Trump campaign official saying: “Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. has filed an arbitration against Manigault-Newman with the American Arbitration Association in New York City, for breach of her 2016 confidentiality agreement with the Trump Campaign. President Trump is well known for giving people opportunities to advance in their careers and lives over the decades, but wrong is wrong, and a direct violation of an agreement must be addressed and the violator must be held accountable.”

Manigault Newman says Trump is trying to silence her, telling MSNBC: “I don’t believe that I have violated, but I will leave it to the lawyers to sort it out. It is interesting that he is trying to silence me. And what is he trying to hide or (is) afraid of? If he had not said anything that is derogatory or demeaning to African-Americans and women, why would he go to the extent to shut me down?”

Here’s one of the tweets sent this morning by Trump …


  1. Her credibility is so low that this would have disappeared fairly quickly. Savannah Guthrie did a good job calling out some of Omarosa’s inconsistency in her Today show interview. But as always, Trump is his own worst enemy.

  2. They’re both assholes. Reading her book now and I dunno what to believe

  3. Trump is a sleazy VULTURE that has been waiting for many years on his perch waiting for the right moment to jump on the presidential bandwagon … he played the people who hated Obama really well … lots of lies and fraud was his trick … and boom… “Don the Con” got thrown into the White House” … well people of West Virginia and South Carolina … look at the piece of crap that you brought to power and the collateral damage as a result … now this two headed snake is biting him back … its a shame that he is immune to all of the poison coming out at him … all thanx to a bunch of stupid, short sighted “Trumpees” …

    He created Omarosa … when his career is over … they should bring back the “Three’s Company” sitcom with him in the lead role with his two weird room mates … Roseann Barr and Omarosa!
