For some reason, Omarosa Manigault has released a recording her being fired from position director communications for the fice public liaison at the White House. Intended, no doubt, to spark discussion and controversy, the tape is pretty straightforward and the firing seems pretty above-board. There are other recordings too, one which was taken in the Situation Room (why they allow phones inside is beyond me) and Omarosa says that she made them to “protect her]self, and she] have no regrets about it.”
In the recording, John Kelly can be heard saying that her dismissal has to do with some “pretty serious integrity violations” and continually shutting down her requests to speak to Trump (the equivalent the classic “can I speak to your manager?” request). The timing all these things–her tape, her comments about Trump starting a “race war” and her new book–is serendipitous, to say the least. The White House has caught on and released a statement press secretary Sarah Sanders:
this book is riddled with lies and false accusations. It’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to prit f these false attacks
This isn’t the first time Omarosa’s been fired by Trump, she was fired multiple times on The Apprentice.
