President Trump goes after ‘Wacky Omarosa’ calling her ‘vicious’


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.”

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.

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.
