At a time when President Trump has found himself being attacked by former Trump administration official, Omarosa Manigault Newman, in her new tell all book that will be available Tuesday at least one person who used to be connected to his campaign has taken the aggressive in defense of President Trump. Former Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson verbally tore into the former White House aide over what she considers to be “disloyal” behavior.
Friday evening Katrina Pierson sent out a series of tweets defending President Trump while stating that the claims of Omarosa Manigault Newman in regards to Trump being a racist are lies. Pierson contends that if President Trump really were a racist than he would not have done the things that he did, because a true racist would have never hired a strong proud African American woman like Omarosa Manigault Newman to his administration in the first place.
In one of her post Katrina Pierson says, “Turning on the man who helped create her brand, fund her venture, & gave her a top WH job for personal gain is very disloyal. A racist, by definition, would not give a strong black woman the time, nor the opportunity. Most people know what’s up here.”
She must have been expecting the author of the new book “Unhinged” to try to answer the accusation that she’s a liar, because Katrina Pierson has already offered that her word is true. The evidence that supports the word of Karina Pierson is the past of Omarosa Manigault Newman herself. Katrina Pierson quoted praise that Omarosa Manigault Newman had lavished on President Trump at one point before leaving his administration.
Several hours after her first post in defense of President Trump Katrina Pierson tweeted again about Omarosa Manigault Newman and said, “She stuck by Trump because he has never stopped supporting her career. After her time on ‘The Apprentice,’ she eventually partnered with Trump to create a reality dating reality show. #Unhinged (with friends like this…).”
In this writers personal opinion further evidence that the word of Omarosa Manigault Newman can not fully be trusted is the fact that her stories have changed. In her book she claims that she heard from a friend that there was a tape recording of President Trump using the N word. However, just earlier this week Omarosa Manigault Newman made headlines when she claimed that she heard a recording that was full of language that no lady should be subjected to along with President Trump using the N word while hosting “The Apprentice,” for NBC. On Friday Omarosa Manigault Newman told NPR, “I heard the tape. Hearing it changed everything for me.”
This story does not match the story that is written in her book. In her book “Unhinged” Omarosa Manigault Newman claimed that she heard a summary of the recording during a phone call. An excerpt from her new book shared by NPR reads “On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said — yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant — and when he’d said them. During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track,” she wrote, referring to the production of “The Apprentice.”
So now I as a journalist and just an interested individual who voted for President Trump myself have to ask, which one is it? Did she lie about hearing the tape herself or did she lie about hearing about it from a friend? No matter what answer she gives it still turns out that there’s a lie in here somewhere. Does Omarosa Manigault Newman even realize that she’s lying about something or is it possible that she has become mentally unhinged?
