President Donald Trump criticized his former aide and supporter Omarosa Manigault Newman today again calling her a “lowlife,” “vicious” and “Wacky Omarosa.”
Manigault Newman was all over national newscasts last weekend for her comments on Meet the Press calling Trump a “racist” and a “bigot.”
She is promoting her upcoming book “Unhinged.”
While I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2018
On Meet the Press Sunday, she released audio recordings of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly terminating her employment. She made the recording in the White House Situation Room, raising security concerns.
Manigault Newman’s book is out Tuesday. It paints a damning picture of Trump, including claiming without evidence that tapes exist of him using the N-word as he filmed his “The Apprentice” reality series, on which she co-starred.
...really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2018
Trump’s attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, says he thinks Manigault Newman may have broken the law by recording private conversations at the White House. And, he adds, she should have been more loyal to the president because “Donald Trump made her.”
Manigault Newman is a 1996 graduate of Central State University and grew up in Youngstown.

Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2018
