Donald Trump boosted anti-Obama ‘birther’ movement because he’s black: Omarosa

Donald Trump boosted anti-Obama ‘birther’ movement because he’s black: Omarosa

The panel on "The Five" reacted to former White House aide and reality star Omarosa Manigault-Newman audiotaping private conversations with Chief of Staff John Kelly and President Donald Trump.

The alleged tape figures a central role in Manigault's book, where she says that she sought to uncover the evidence of racism until she was sacked by White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Omarosa seems to have gotten under President Donald Trump's skin during her march through the various programs of NBC News in promotion of her new book Unhinged.

According to excerpts of her forthcoming memoir released to The Guardian, Omarosa said Mr. Trump used the "N-word" repeatedly during the taping of "The Apprentice" prior to his presidency, and she claims that there is a recording of his use of the slur.

The president said that Mark Burnett, who produced "The Apprentice", called him and assured him there are "no tapes of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa". Ms Manigault Newman went on to say in an NBC interview that the taped call shows Mr Trump "doesn't even know what's happening in his White House". On Monday, he said he spoke to "Apprentice" producer Mark Burnett and said no tapes exist of him using "that word". "The messages behind her style choices aren't always clear, but they are never accidental".

"Trump added: "...really bad things.

"The first thing he said was that the Hillary Clinton people started the birther movement; 'Omarosa, you're so naive, '" she said on MSNBC.

"They took it upon themselves to actually document this so that they could actually expose him for the racist that he is", she said.

To say it here is easier than doing it on the pitch. "I think we were better than them today", Bernardo Silva told Sky Sports . He continued: "We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation".

Other former West Wing staffers have landed in similarly paying gigs: Keith Schiller, Trump's longtime bodyguard and one-time director of Oval Office operations, makes $15,000 per month advising the Republican National Committee on security arrangements for the 2020 GOP convention. "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!" he wrote. "She's not a friend; she's a liar, and I would say she's evil".

Matthews pointed out that Trump used similar rhetoric to describe Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters, who he said has a "low I.Q".

Manigault-Newman did not identify the source who allegedly played the tape for her, but at least three longtime Trump aides told The Huffington Post that she told them it was Troy McClain, a former "Apprentice" contestant.

The re-emerged in recent days, amid the release of her tell-all book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the White House". While publicizing the book, she released an audio recording of a discussion, she says, she secretly recorded inside the White House.

"It's the timeline. The reason why Omarosa is facing a wrath of contradiction is because she can't keep her lies straight", said Pierson.

In the recording, which the Associated Press independently listened to, Kelly is heard saying he wants to talk with Manigault Newman about leaving the White House.

Manigual Newman also said in the interview that she believes Trump is not the same person she knew in 2013, saying he now has "some serious mental impairments".
