Omarosa Manigault Newman is true comedy. She plays the hapless villain who thinks she is smarter than she is in the reality show that is her life.
So desperate for attention she is willing to sell out anyone to get it. Her 15 minutes have long since been up but not for the ladies at The View.
No for these ladies anything about Trump is a scandal, even if it ends up smearing Hillary Clinton instead.
As reported by The Hill:
Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Monday released new tapes of President Trump in a private meeting talking about former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s ties to Russia.
Manigault Newman played the audio recording on ABC’s “The View,” prefacing it by saying it is from an October 2017 meeting with the White House communications and press teams.
“When Donald Trump got bored, which was very often because his attention span was very short, he would sometimes try to figure out what meetings were taking place in the White House and he would crash those meetings,” Manigault Newman said. “This was a meeting with the entire communications staff and the press shop. We were meeting to talk about tax reform or his trip to North Korea.”
“He came into the meeting, he sat down, and he starts rambling from topic to topic, none of it makes sense,” she said. “And this is in October of last year, so this is … twelve months after the election, and he’s still talking about Hillary Clinton.
In the tape, Trump claims the “real Russia story is Hillary and collusion,” a statement that he has made in public multiple times. He alleges the Clinton campaign paid $9 million for an unidentified “phony report.”
When White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says it is “closer to six [million],” Trump says she is wrong, adding the money was “spent through a law firm.”
“That way, they can’t trace it,” he says. “But they traced it. One thing in this business is they trace it.”
“The reason a law firm is because this way you don’t have to give any papers,” he adds. “But they found out, it’s definitely illegal and it’s illegal from a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint.”
At the end of the tape, Trump looks to his staff for affirmation.
“So the whole Russia thing, I think, seems to have turned around. What do you think, Sarah?” he asks.
“Absolutely,” Huckabee Sanders can be heard replying.
