Omarosa Manigault-Newman is being praised online. Not for being the lone Whistleblower in the Trump White House, but for her body. Omarosa was photo’d leaving the Trevor Noah show last night, and she had on a very form firing outfit.
And it was the outfit, not her revelations that captured the attention of the online audience. Omarosa, who recently married a Florida pastor John Newman, smiled for the cameras – as onlookers cheered her.
Omarosa and husband John Newman visited The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in New York yesterday, to talk about her new book ‘Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House’.
Almost immediately the hashtag #OmarosaThick began spreading like wildfire on social media.
Reports say president Donald Trump called Omarosa, his former White House aide and reality-TV colleague, a lowlife and a dog in response her calling him racist — a strategy that appears to be backfiring on him.
Omarosa, on a publicity tour for her new book, has emerged from her brief stint in Trump’s White House as a Trump enemy after years of publicly praising him and working for his campaign and administration.
Armed with tapes of private conversations, she’s described Trump as a racist with a history of using vile slurs against black people.
But Omarosa doesn’t exactly command credibility. For example, in her book she says she spoke with a source who had heard a tape of Trump using racial slurs.
But in a recent NPR interview she said she heard the tape herself, seeming to contradict what she wrote in the book.
The Republican pollster Frank Luntz also pushed back on details from the book around the alleged tape.
“I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149,” Luntz tweeted. “She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word. Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify. Very shoddy work.”
