In a second tape she released on the Today show on Monday, a voice purportedly belonging to President Trump sounds surprised to hear that Kelly had asked Manigault Newman to leave the White House. She held the positions of assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison.
That doublespeak went out the window with the Manigault Newman disclosures. But the "Late Show" host did have some thoughts on the book's title. and what it might really refer to.
Manigault Newman told NBC's "Meet the Press" she secretly recorded a number of conversations in the White House for her own protection. She boasts it finally proves Trump is racist - because, as Stephen Colbert pointed out, declining to rent to black tenants, saying a Nazi rally had some fine people and calling African countries "sh*thole" is not proof enough.
Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems.
"He knew that John Kelly was going to take me into the 'Situation Room, ' and lock me in there, threaten me, and say that things were going to get ugly for me, and there would be damage to my reputation", Newman said of Donald Trump.
Manigault Newman's exit does highlight the lack of diversity among Trump's top aides. He also has targeted black NFL players for kneeling in social protest during the national anthem. Omarosa had Zero credibility with the Media (they didn't want interviews) when she worked in the White House. For example, Trump's former personal aide John McEntee, who was removed from his job in April, went to the campaign. "I actually do think she's well advised to get legal counsel". Richard Painter, White House ethics czar for George W. Bush, said the NDAs "aren't worth the paper they are printed on".
As with many such written pacts in the political campaign world, it prohibited her from disparaging Trump, even in the distant future, unless she were to be released from that obligation.
Meanwhile, Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said on "Fox and Friends" Monday that Manigault Newman may have broken the law by recording private conversations inside the White House.
"Anything that they want, I'll certainly cooperate".
But experts in national security and clearance law said that, while she seriously violated rules - and would likely be barred from ever being granted a security clearance - she probably didn't break any law unless the conversations she recorded were classified.
Perino said taping people in the Situation Room "puts our national security at risk".
A new section of Omarosa Manigault-Newman's book claims President Donald Trump blasted Donald Trump Jr. for how he handled the initial intrigue over his 2016 meeting with a Kremlin lawyer. According to the New York Daily News, Mangigault-Newman, in one section of the book, writes that Trump called his son a "f*ck-up" for publicly posting the emails he exchanged with Rob Goldstone.
