Omarosa Manigault Newman is the former reality star and Trump advisor who was fired and had to be “escorted” off of White House grounds. She is trying to cash in with a book slamming the President and one of the more damning allegations she makes is that Trump used the N-word on the set of The Apprentice. Omarosa’s book isn’t even out yet and she’s already been caught twice lying about this accusation.
The Guardian got an advanced copy of Omarosa’s memoirs and filed this report:
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.
Omarosa says she didn’t actually hear Trump use the N-word or even personally listen to the tapes she alleges exist. Instead, she claims she heard about it from someone else and that someone else was quick to call out her bullshit:
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. Very shoddy work.

Okay, that’s lie #1 exposed and here’s #2 from NPR:
“Hearing it changed everything for me,” former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman told NPR on Friday.
Manigault Newman was referring to what she calls the “N-word tape” — a long-rumored but never surfaced tape of Donald Trump on the set of The Apprentice allegedly using the racial slur.
In her interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin, Manigault Newman claims to have heard the tape and heard Trump using that slur on the tape.
But that’s not what it says in her tell-all book, Unhinged, due out on Tuesday.
It gets better because Omarosa claims that her lie isn’t a lie at all and then proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that is:
When asked about the discrepancy by Martin in the interview, Manigault Newman insisted Martin must not have read the book (she had) and pointed to a section at the very end of it.
But in that section, Manigault Newman doesn’t actually describe hearing the tape. She writes of calling one of her “sources” who had a lead on the “N-word tape.”
And here is that section of her book:
Incredibly, this person – who shall remain nameless – picked up the phone.
On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said – yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant – and when he’d said them. During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track.
For over a year I’d been so afraid of hearing the specifics from someone who’d been in the room. Hearing the truth freed me from that fear. And only now that it’s gone, do I realize just how heavy it’s been.
In no way is Omarosa saying she actually heard the tape in that excerpt. She’s lying, pure and simple. There is then of course the important question: If she actually heard Trump using the N-word years ago, why was she his biggest cheerleader during the presidential election and why did she take a job with someone she claims is such a racist?
Omarosa’s credibility is shot, but there’s good news because the liberal media doesn’t give a shit. The lefties will eat this up and report it as fact.
