UPDATED: Omarosa says Trump is a racist who uses N-word - and claims there's tape to prove it

Source: The Guardian

Former Apprentice contestant and ex-White House adviser writes in new memoir that she witnessed 'truly appalling things'

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.

Trump has been haunted from around the time of his election in 2016 by allegations that outtakes from the reality TV show exist in which he is heard saying the N-word and using other offensive language.

In her book, Unhinged, a copy of which was obtained by the Guardian ahead of its publication next week, the former Apprentice participant insists that the reports are true, although she does not say she heard him use the word herself.

UPDATE:

Omarosa Manigault Newman says she refused hush money, pens White House memoir calling Trump racist


By Josh Dawsey
August 10 at 1:52 PM

Omarosa Manigault Newman was offered a $15,000-a-month contract from President Trump’s campaign to stay silent after being fired from her job as a White House aide by Chief of Staff John F. Kelly last December, according to a forthcoming book by Manigault Newman and people familiar with the proposal.

But she refused, according to the incendiary new book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” which also depicts Trump as unqualified, narcissistic and racist. Excerpts of the book were obtained by The Washington Post.

After she was fired, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence.

The proposed nondisclosure agreement allegedly said Manigault Newman could not make any comments about President Trump or his family; Vice President Pence or his family; or any comments that could damage the president. It said she would do “diversity outreach,” among other things, for the campaign, according to her account.

Omorosa is psycho trash.

2. Agree!

My first thought was why was she sticking around and promoting someone like Trump? Not that I don't believe her, just that she isn't much, if any, better than he is.

Calling blacks ni**ers will help strengthen his rating among white racists. Opportunists like Omarosa feed the beast of racism by proving their hero is true to his word.

27. I recognize this was the mainstream GOP view in the 2000s

Didn't the Bush campaign do something to convince SC voters to not vote for McCain? A lot of politicians pretended or dog whistled. Trump is finally a candidate the resembles the GOP as it really is and they will still threaten to get 40% of the vote especially with Fox still relevant after getting this country into Iraq.

28. Yeah well in the end the Republicans seem to able to call their members into party line ...

better than we Democrats do. Arguing Pelosi, Bernie, Hillary, Gillibrand .... wastes our energy and encourages some Democrats not to vote or to vote green.

Trump is finally at the worst he's been. He's the problem. Its not who will become Speaker, its getting a Congress that gets the chance to name the next Democrat who holds the gavel that should be our focus.

These guys must stay up late, drinking bourbon and smoking cigars, thinking up new funny sounds for derogatory names for Goo Goos. They think it's funny. They're just assholes.

Like "goo goo eyes" maybe because some Filipino and Polynesian people have slightly bulging eyes?

Who knows really... trust Trump to dig up a racial slur that hasn't been used by decent people since the Filipino-American War in 1899.

12. until produced for public consumption

 

she just needs to STFU. She just can't understand her 15 minutes of fame serving her 'dark lord' is over. I bet she's just waiting for the payoff money IF even dumptrump gives a damn. He's already shown that in private, he has said some outrageous racist, sexist comments. I hope her book is a flop.

Now if she writes a book about AA women and their contribution to the American military, I might contemplate purchasing after making sure it was the truth.

13. The unfortunate fact is this will likely play well with his base.



When they hear him actually spit out those words, they'll be off the rails. Whooping and hollering, screaming "yeah, baby...gimmie more" and "I told ya honey, he's really one of us".

The unfortunate reality is that the "N-word" (and the intention behind it) was never ostracized in the places we now call Trump-country.

When these tapes go public, and they will eventually, Miller and his ilk will be proud of their president.

We have known this was probably on tape for years but his pals at NBC wouldn't release it and they threatened to sue anyone who did if I recall. Is Omarosa saying she has the tapes in her possession?

17. Omarosa does not have the tapes.

She has been told that there are tapes, she didn't say she is in possession of them.

I have no doubt that she is telling the truth. What is sad is that republicans don't care. They don't care because they see the world the same way as Trump.

Omarosa hitched her wagon to Trump because she was intoxicated with the excitement, glamour, and power of The White House. She needs to take responsibility for that.

19. If Omarosa hadn't been booted from the west wing

would she have been willing to reveal the extent of Trump's hateful vocabulary? The answer is most assuredly NO. She knew what the man was all about years ago. The fact that she was willing to accept a position in the administration to begin with would discredit any "concern" about having a blatant racist in the oval office. This is about cashing in and extending an already-expired 15 seconds of fame.

22. Omarosa doesn't have any DT tapes from the show

She's saying that tapes EXIST. She doesn't have them though, and that means she can't release them.

We've already heard these rumors many times, Trump made the show The Apprentice by not following any script or learning any lines. He just foamed at the mouth and said whatever shit he wanted. The show producers couldn't get the orange asshole to follow a script so they just edited whatever garbage he said to make a show out of it. That went on for - what? - 7 or 8 years I think.

What happened to all of the original diarrhea-mouth tapes? The show runners still have those locked away somewhere (according to the rumors.) Omarosa and many others were present when the DT garbage was spewed, they heard him say the stuff.

After the Billy Bush pussy-grabbing tape surfaced in 2016, people predicted that the Apprentice outtakes would show up anytime now, but it never happened. I'm sure there are NDA's and threats of very large penalties to the show runners if the tapes ever do come out. As a matter of fact I was hoping that fixer Michael Cohen had handled those NDA's and had stuff in his files that the FBI confiscated. So far nothing has been released, but it's still possible that Cohen was involved somehow.

29. Omarosa Tells NPR She Heard Trump 'N-Word Tape,' Contradicting Her Own Tell-All Book

"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.

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."
