Trump Renews Attack on ‘Wacky’ Omarosa After Leaked Recordings: ‘Vicious, But Not Smart’

“She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her,” the president says

President Donald Trump struck back at former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault on Monday, calling her out in multiple tweets after she shared secret audio of her speaking with Trump.

“Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. 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,” said Trump

“I would rarely see her but heard 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!”

He concluded by saying, “While I know it’s ‘not presidential’ to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime time to make even Wacky Omarosa look as legitimate as possible. Sorry!”

Earlier Monday, Omarosa appeared on the “Today” show to promote her new book about the Trump White House, titled “Unhinged,” and revealed a secret recording she made of a conversation between her and Trump shortly after she was fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

“Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw in the news you’re thinking about leaving. What happened?” said Trump.

“Gen. Kelly — Gen. Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave,” Manigault answered.

“No. Nobody even told me about it. You know, they run a big operation but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. God dammit! I don’t love you leaving at all,” said Trump.

On Sunday, Omarosa also released a recording of Kelly telling her that she was out and that he was taking the action himself without the president’s knowledge.

One of the biggest stars to emerge from Trump’s former NBC reality show, Omarosa remained close with the president and was given a job in the White House as communications director for the office of the Public Liaison. The American public supplied a salary of more than $179,000 a year according to public records.

Though rumors swirled at the time that her exit was anything other than friendly, the president wished her luck at the time in a tweet which is a stark departure from today.
