If you hadn’t heard of Omarosa Manigault Newman before, you surely have had your fix as of late. From the moment of her dismissal from her position as White House Aide, Omarosa has done everything in her power to ensure she gets to wear the “victim badge” of the entire fiasco.
Her book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” she made numerous accusations and claims about the President, FLOTUS, and the entire staff.
Now, she’s chosen to release a tape of a trusted colleague and friend, Lara Trump. After this, it’s safe to assume this friendship has been severed for good.
Omarosa claimed that the President’s daughter-in-law offered her “hush money” in the brief moments after she was fired from her position at the White House.
According to Fox News: “A tape appeared to show Lara Trump offering her a job at $180,000 a year to join President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, after she was fired in December 2017.”
The recording stated: “‘It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out,’ Trump is heard saying in reference to a New York Times article. ‘Clearly, if you come on board the campaign, like, we can’t have, we got to,’ she continues, before Manigault Newman cuts her off: ‘Oh, God no.’”
It continues: “I would love if you could, you know, occasionally go do speaking engagements and that sort of thing for us -- I think you’d be awesome at that.” Unfortunately, Omarosa’s sourness toward the entire situation only fueled the fire.
In light of the entire situation, Lara dropped a massive truth bomb in response. “I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.”
Read her public statement, below:
“From the beginning of my father-in-law’s campaign, Omarosa was welcomed into our family as a trusted friend and confidant. On the Women for Trump tour, including Omarosa, we formed a sisterhood bond that is unlike any I have experienced in my life. We toured together, laughed together, and worked really hard towards a common goal. We would never have imagined that one of our own was secretly recording all of our private conversations. When Omarosa was fired by the White House Chief of Staff in December 2017, my entire family was concerned for her because we had no idea about the basis of her dismissal. We still wanted her on our team because we cared so much about her personally. That’s why I reached out to offer her a position in the 2020 Trump Campaign before we knew anything about the gross violations of ethics and integrity during her White House tenure. Another one of Omarosa’s ‘bombshell’ tapes is a fraud. The discussions about a position with the campaign took place in numerous phone calls over the course of several weeks. Woman to woman, I shared a connection with Omarosa as a friend and a campaign sister, and I am absolutely shocked and saddened by her betrayal and violation on a deeply personal level. I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.”
It seems now that Omarosa is doing everything in her power to ensure her name stays in the news and she is the victim of every situation. Sadly, it’s done nothing but severe friendships, relationships, and put a negative spotlight on her time after time.
