Yesterday The Daily Beast broke a story claiming that Omarosa secretly taped conversations with Donald Trump while in the White House.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell The Daily Beast that Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the infamous former Apprentice star who followed Trump to the White House, secretly recorded conversations with the president—conversations she has since leveraged while shopping her forthcoming “tell-all” book, bluntly titled UNHINGED.
For months, it has been rumored that Manigault had clandestinely recorded on her smartphone “tapes” of unspecified private discussions she had in the West Wing. Audio actually does exist, and even stars Manigault’s former boss.
I’ll admit when I first read this headline I became slightly worried. Omarosa could have edited tapes or recorded out of context conversations in order to take Trump out. However, after I read the actual report I realized they were nothing.
One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the so-called “Omarosa tapes” described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person.
Notice what this says. The tapes are anodyne, everyday chatter. This means that they have no substance behind them. It is clear that she is going to use these tapes to add legitimacy to her book.
Omarosa’s book is going to be centered around Trump’s supposedly ‘unhinged’ behavior. The funny part of this topic is that it is the exact narrative the Mainstream Media has run with.
