Trump calls Omarosa a ‘dog’ as war more than salacious memoir explodes
President Trump blasted Omarosa Manigault-Newman as a &ldquocrazed, crying lowlife&rdquo on Tuesday morning and went so far as to get in touch with her a "dog," quickly escalating the already heated battle among the president and the reality Tv star who made her name on his show.
&ldquoWhen you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White Home, I guess it just didn&rsquot function out. Excellent work by Basic Kelly for rapidly firing that dog!&rdquo Trump tweeted.
The president&rsquos harsh words for &ldquoWacky&rdquo Manigault-Newman, as he referred to her on Monday, come as the former White Residence aide and &ldquoApprentice&rdquo star&rsquos book is released.
Manigault-Newman&rsquos media blitz to promote her book, &ldquoUnhinged: An Insider&rsquos Account of the Trump White Property,&rdquo has drawn challenging criticism from the White Property, as she revealed she had secretly recorded Chief of Employees John Kelly as he fired her in the Predicament Area.
More than the weekend, Manigault-Newman released the recording of Kelly notifying her of her firing. Manigault-Newman said Sunday that Kelly was &ldquothreatening&rdquo her in the White Residence.
In the recording, Kelly seeks Manigault-Newman&rsquos &ldquofriendly departure&rdquo from the administration with no any &ldquodifficulty in the future relative to your reputation.&rdquo According to the tape, Kelly says things could get &ldquougly&rdquo for her, and that she would be &ldquoopen to some legal action&rdquo for conduct that would merit a court martial if she were in the military.
She later released a tape of a phone call with Trump himself.
OMAROSA&rsquoS REVENGE: BOOK TRASHES &lsquoMOBLIKE&rsquo TRUMP, EXPOSES Household DRAMA, BASHES EX-COLLEAGUES
In her book, her firing is a important section. In it, she goes so far as to claim that Kelly and the White House lawyers present, upon notifying her of her termination, had been holding her against her will in the Predicament Area, suggesting she was at threat of an asthma attack because she initially couldn’t get her inhaler.
&ldquoI am an asthma sufferer, and I began to feel a tightness in my chest. I had to calm myself down or I could have had a full-blown asthma attack,&rdquo Manigault-Newman writes in the prologue. &ldquoI asked if I could go get my purse where I had stashed my inhaler, and they wouldn&rsquot let me leave the space. I asked why I was not allowed to leave, and they said this is how Kelly had set up the meeting.&rdquo
Manigault-Newman&rsquos assistant was in the end permitted to &ldquogo get [her] purse&rdquo with the inhaler.
Manigault-Newman also writes in the book that she believed her firing was connected to her expertise of a tape made in the early 2000s, in which Trump supposedly makes use of &ldquothe N-word.&rdquo
Trump strongly disputes the claims of such a tape.
White House officials, meanwhile, blasted her for producing recordings of Trump and Kelly.
&ldquoThe thought of doing some thing like that to a fellow employee, not to mention the leader of the free globe, is totally disgraceful,&rdquo Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told "Fox & Friends."
TRUMP BLASTS &lsquoWACKY OMAROSA&rsquo After LEAKED TAPE: &lsquoVICIOUS BUT NOT Sensible&rsquo
And Trump&rsquos individual attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, mentioned Monday that Manigault-Newman violated national security rules by taping White Home officials inside the West Wing without having their consent&mdashespecially in the highly-secure Situation Area.
And on Monday, Trump tweeted that, &ldquoPeople in the White Home hated her. She was vicious, but not wise.&rdquo
All through the book, although, Manigault-Newman dished out her own insults, blasting Trump as &ldquomoblike,&rdquo and likening him to a &ldquocult leader.&rdquo She slammed Vice President Mike Pence as a &ldquoswamp creature,&rdquo and went as far as to call Trump &ldquomentally and physically impaired.&rdquo
In an additional skirmish, Trump tweeted Monday that Manigault-Newman signed a non-disclosure agreement upon her exit from the White Home. But the former White House aide writes in her book that she &ldquorefused&rdquo to sign an NDA.
