White House Says Omarosa’s Book Is ‘Riddled With Lies’

White House Says Omarosa’s Book Is ‘Riddled With Lies’

As the president waited for an event at his private golf club, Trump National Bedminster in New Jersey, he tweeted his disdain for his current Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "scared stiff" and "Missing in Action".

The accusations are among a long list of scandalous claims contained in her new book, "Unhinged", set to come out August 14.

In a new column, Chait goes out on a limb in defending the savvy of Manigault Newman.

Omarosa Manigault Newman entered the White House as one of President Donald Trump's longest-serving associates, the only person aside from his daughter who'd known and worked alongside him for more than a decade. In the book, she paints Mr Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

Ms Manigault Newman was a contestant on The Apprentice and later served as a senior adviser to the president. She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents.

Many across social media are giving Omarosa Manigault Newman the virtual side-eye over her seemingly contradictory statements about Donald Trump's use of the N-word.




Little did she know that she would become a likely candidate for that list after losing her position at The White House. USA Today reports that Donald Trump has called his former Director of African American Outreach, a "low life".

In the book, Manigault Newman claims without evidence that tapes exist of Trump using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set.

Chait points to the a Politico story in which White House staffers say they are unwilling to take her on.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized Unhinged as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

Newman was once a vocal supporter of the president but has been fiercely critical of him in the months since she left the White House.
