White House Blasts Omarosa’s Book Claiming Trump Used Racist Remarks

If you're desperate for unverified gossip, The Washington Post's recap of the book has you covered, and it's a certainty that you will hear about these anecdotes in the days ahead.
In the book, Manigault Newman painted the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.
Omarosa will be on NBC's Meet the Press to discuss the book this Sunday. It comes at the first anniversary of deadly white-supremacist protests in Charlottesville, where Trump was criticized for saying there fine people "on both sides". It said she would do "diversity outreach", among other things, for the campaign, according to her account. She says when she turned down the offer, she received letters from Trump's lawyers telling her to stay quiet. "I didn't know that".
She also claims without evidence that tapes exist of the president using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set.
She also claims to have personally witnessed the president use racial epithets including "Flip" and "goo-goo" to describe White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's husband, George Conway, who is half Filipino. The existence of some tapes was first reported Wednesday by the Daily Beast.
NPR's Rachel Martin pointed out the discrepancy to Manigault during the interview, prompting Manigault to try to tell Martin that she hadn't read the book.
"All we need to remember is that Trump loves the hate", she writes in the book. He delights in chaos and confusion.
In other words, Manigault said this to NPR: "Hearing it changed everything for me". "During boardroom outtakes, Donald talked about Obama often", Manigault Newman writes. She served as Trump's chief liaison to the African American community and often vouched for him.
The White House has already slammed the book as "riddled with lies and false accusations".
It is also not the only time the veracity of Manigault's claims has been called into question.
"By that point", Manigault Newman writes, "three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape".
Idris Elba reignites Bond rumours with cryptic tweet
The first was a heavily filtered selfie of the top half of his head with the caption, "my name is Elba, Idris Elba". Well, Elba followed that up a few hours later with another post simply telling fans " Don't believe the HYPE ".
Another White House official confirmed that Manigault Newman brought Cohen into the White House and was later rebuked for it. "He hated him. He never explained why, but now I believe it was because Obama was black". Since Trump was ever the germophobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.
The former aide also used the show "Big Brother" to promote her tell-all book. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" the president is quoted in Unhinged.
Manigault-Newman developed a relationship with Trump during the taping of The Apprentice, where she was a contestant known for her back-stabbing ways. And only now that it's gone, do I realize just how heavy it's been. One person familiar with how Trump operates in the Oval Office said he would rip up "anything that happened to be on his desk that he was done with". He responded: "Lowlife. She's a lowlife". Trump expresses his displeasure.
The hush money offer was reportedly offered by Trump campaign advisor and daughter-in-law Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump.
