White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was once again seen at the airport and given a surprise interview about the whole Omarosa Manigault saga. This time it involved Omarosa’s controversial new book, “Unhinged.” As always Secretary Sanders had no issue speaking her mind.
Update America is now reporting that TMZ ran into Sanders and asked her for her feeling towards “UNHINGED,” the book in which Omarosa makes a number of explosive and unverified claims about President Donald Trump saying the word “N*****” on the set of The Apprentice. Sanders Replied, “I think it’s sad, the person that gave her the greatest opportunity; she showed who she is and that’s a totally disloyal individual, I think it’s sad.”
Sanders is 100% correct. President Trump gave her the opportunity of a lifetime. Who amongst us can say they worked in the White House, next to the president and got to have a front seat to history? It’s something reserved for only a few lucky souls. Many people I know, including myself would give anything to have the opportunity to work just once alongside the President of the United States of America, no matter what party that president is from.
Here is more via WBAL:
President Donald Trump lashed out at Omarosa Manigault Newman on Monday, saying his former White House adviser — who is promoting a tell-all book and airing secret audio recordings —“got fired for the last time.”
On Twitter, Trump labeled Manigault Newman “wacky” and said Chief of Staff John Kelly called her a “loser & nothing but problems.” He added: “I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired!”
Trump’s pushback came after Manigault Newman released another recording Monday. Aired on NBC’s “Today” show, it is purportedly an excerpt of a phone conversation between Trump and her after she was fired from the White House. It appears to show Trump expressing surprise, saying “nobody even told me about it.”
On Sunday, Manigault Newman told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that she surreptitiously recorded a number of conversations in the White House for her own protection. The show aired portions of a recording of her firing by Kelly in the high-security Situation Room.
Critics have denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security. The voice on the recording released Monday appears to be Trump’s. The White House has not denied it, but The Associated Press has not independently verified it is the president. The AP has independently listened to the recording of Kelly and Manigault Newman.
Trump acknowledged Monday that the president of the United States should perhaps not engage in a public war of words with an ex-employee, saying he knows “it’s “not presidential” to take on “a lowlife like Omarosa.” But he added: “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!”
Responding to Trump’s tweets on NBC, Manigault Newman said: “I think it’s sad that with all the things that’s going on in the country that he would take time out to insult me and to insult my intelligence.”
She added: “This is his pattern with African-Americans.”
Trump later tweeted that Manigault Newman has a “fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!”
It was not clear exactly what he was referring to. White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said Sunday on ABC that there are “confidentiality agreements” in the West Wing. Trump’s campaign said that in the 2016 race she “signed the exact same NDA that everyone else on the campaign signed, which is still enforceable.”
While the latest recording has Trump indicating he was unaware of her firing, Manigault Newman said on “Today” that he may have instructed Kelly to do it. She offered no evidence.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Monday: “I’m not going to get into the tick-tock of who knew what when, but the president makes the decisions.”
Manigault Newman, whose book is out this week, suggested there was more to come: “There’s a lot of very corrupt things happening in the White House, and I am going to blow the whistle on a lot of them.”
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.
“She’s certainly violating national security regulations, which I think have the force of law,” Giuliani said.
But experts in national security and clearance law said that, while she seriously violated SCIF rules — and would likely be barred from ever being granted a security clearance — she probably didn’t break the law unless the conversations she recorded were classified.
Amorosa once again decide to bite the hand that fed her once again. Just like we all saw on The Apprentice all those times she backstabbed the President and made enemies wherever she went.

It was indeed very foolish of President Trump to have ever given her another chance. The woman is obviously out for herself and President Trump is out for the nation. Amorosa doesn’t care about the nation, I don’t think she even cares about herself very much after seeing her auto-destructive actions. On The Apprentice it might be considered as “part of the game” but the White House is far from being a game.
