President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning to slam his former adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman, hours after she ignited a new controversy by releasing an audio tape that appears to be a recording of the president commiserating about her firing last year. “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time,” Trump wrote Monday. “She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard....” In his subsequent tweet, he added “...really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!” On Monday morning, NBC’s Today show aired a recording in which it appears that Trump did not actually know that she had been fired by his chief of staff, John Kelly, until she informed him. In the tape, the voice seeming to be Trump said “I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.” This most recent flare-up in the war between Manigault-Newman and Team Trump comes the day before her book, Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House, is scheduled for release.
