Trump in his element here. Trash flying all over the place.

Not presidential

I remember the days when the former president of the US was attacked by a reality TV star with rancid, racist-tinged, outrageous trash, but chose not to act like a potty-throwing baby.

A more civilised man in a more civilised era.

Wait a minute, wait a minute – Omorosa can’t be that bad, I mean she was not only hired once, but twice (once on his reality show, once in the White House) by the President, so she has to be part of the “only the best people”, right?  People like;

Mike Flynn – indicted for lying to the FBI

Paul "The Ultimate Swamp Creature" Manafort – on trial for fraud and tax evasion

Rick Gates – copped a plea so he wouldn’t have to go to jail for 100 years

Chris Collins, a vocal Trump supporter, arrested for insider trading

Scott Pruitt - $100K in taxpayer money for private planes and first class trips, accepting apartments for $50 a night from lobbyists, ordering his staff to use sirens so he can get to a restaurant…

Tom Price – over $1 million in taxpayer money used on chartered private planes

Rob Porter – physically assaulted both his wife and girlfriend

Don Jr – met with a foreign agent to influence a US election

Now Omarosa – bringing unauthorized electronic equipment into a secure space

The best people? You bet, the best fraudsters, liars, and leeches – kind of reminds you of a cesspool, doesn’t it…

John Kelly's language and lies toward an African American member of Congress and a widow of fallen soldier are known because there were tapes.  

Fortunately there are tapes now. Kelly appears to threaten this woman ..simply go or we ruin your ability to work. Then the proffer of contract for fake work by Lara Trump. The lies and malignant behaviors of this president and his corrupt enablers is obscene. It is staggering to see the damage done to the morality and character to our nation right before our eyes.

The option for Americans is to vote out all Republicans as they are only Trump enablers.

Hey Omarosa ! Jack Nicholson called, he wants his eyebrows back.

So much for only “hiring the best people”.

This is administration is as fake as Trump’s skin tone.

Right, Black. I'd like to hear more about why Stephen Calk, president of his eponomous bank, decided to lend Paul Manafort $9.5 million despite objections from the bank's oversight committee. Might have had something to do with Calk being subsequently nominated by Manafort for Secretary of the Army. You see the type of people the President surrounds himself with.

But this is a mildly interesting topic. It gives glimpses into Trump's White House and raises the question of whether he's deceitful or simply so unaware he no longer retains functional control. Of course, either answer is bad. It really has nothing to do with Omarosa; it has to do with Trump.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Kelly's faux "concern", wrapped in a thinly veiled, thuggish threat and uttered in an undisguised menacing tone, for Omarosa's reputation is cute coming from a man whose job is lying for Trump (in service to the nation?) while Trump's cowardice in feigning ignorance of Omarosa's termination over the phone exposes him as a very poor actor, indeed (pure gammon!), whose insincere tone of voice betrays the venal character of this obnoxious, lowlife bottom feeder who has been ludicrously elevated to the highest office in the land. Time to scrap the Electoral College that made this travesty of a POTUS turn the American Dream into a nightmare for the world.

Got any original opinions to share or is it just all this parroted or paraphrased stuff?

Two peas in a pod. They should be married except Trump would never marry a black woman.

Oh for the days of no drama Obama. We get drama every day now and it is of the lowest bottom

dwelling variety, of course starting with the President who, lets remember, pals around with KKK types

and pays off his porn star lovers.

Anyone see the Veterans Administration was turned over to some Trump rich friends to run, members

at Mar-a-Lago? You military types health care is being run but the President of Marvel Comics. Never served and never worked in government. You all regret your vote for Trump yet? Don't worry, if not now, you will later.

Last February, shortly after Peter O’Rourke became chief of staff for the Department of Veterans Affairs, he received an email from Bruce Moskowitz with his input on a new mental health initiative for the VA. “Received,” O’Rourke replied. “I will begin a project plan and develop a timeline for action.” O’Rourke treated the email as an order, but Moskowitz is not his boss. In fact, he is not even a government official. Moskowitz is a Palm Beach doctor who helps wealthy people obtain high-service “concierge” medical care. 

More to the point, he is one-third of an informal council that is exerting sweeping influence on the VA from Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Florida. The troika is led by Ike Perlmutter, the reclusive chairman of Marvel Entertainment, who is a longtime acquaintance of President Trump’s. The third member is a lawyer named Marc Sherman. None of them has ever served in the U.S. military or government.

An NDA regarding her work with his campaign might fly, but there's no way an NDA against a public servant would be legal, as reprehensible as she might be.

And her suggestion that he instructed Kelly yo fire her and then feigned innocence sounds believable. Trump is known for being all bark and no bite when it comes to unpleasant tasks that do not glorify him personally.

6 ( +6 / -0 )

Good questions, Black! In a nutshell, Calk wasn't called as a witness because his case may result in future prosecution, so there are issues with self-incrimination (the case against Manafort is so tight his cooperation wasn't needed). But as it's said, the fish rots from the head. Trump truly deserves Omarosa; she, like him and most he surrounds himself with, are just a bunch of grifters.

6 ( +6 / -0 )

The funny thing is that Omarosa is very likely not the last. Somewhere in Trump's apparatus, for some reason, another will turn, and all of Trump's prior elucidations of adulation will in a second turn to scorn and insults. How do I know this? Well, how many times has it happened before?

Again, when you're a grifter yourself, you're surrounded by grifters, and you deserve no better - nor do the Americans who voted for him. What else could they have expected?

Let’s hear the other recordings she has.

Someone isn't taking his meds. Obviously, he needs a role-model in his life!

Trump Calls Omarosa a ‘Dog’ and a ‘Crazed, Crying Lowlife’

Who wants to read a bunch of lies and crap?

The President of the US. He reads the National Enquirer.

If we change ‘read’ to ‘hear,, you post links to Sean Hannity.

Omarosa just released a recording of Trump staffers talking about how to spin the situation should the N-Word recording come out:

"I am trying to find out at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it,” Pierson can be heard saying in the recording of the 2016 conversation."

Wat a job she has.

And her suggestion that he instructed Kelly yo fire her and then feigned innocence sounds believable.

After hearing the recording it sounds more than just believable, it sounds probable. He came across as totally sincere and in the know.

Oops, totally insincere.

Nice of Trump to help her so much to advertise her book.

I suspect her statements against Trump are protected by whistle blower laws. That overrides any non-disclosure agreement.

Manigault Newman also alleges that Trump allies tried to buy her silence after she left the White House, offering her $15,000 a month to accept a "senior position" on his 2020 re-election campaign along with a stringent nondisclosure agreement.

A new article this morning shows that they have been paying all of their ex employees $15,000 a month too. It seems like there is some truth to what she is saying!

Omarosa says price of silence for ex-Trump aides is $15,000. What do campaign records show?

Rest assured; she or he is already standing in the batter's box.

Allegedly, there's decades worth of women who have been denigrated/abused/assaulted by Trump.

Of course there's going to be more. And sooner or later, the enablers won't be able to protect the serial sex pest and beloved racist anymore.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Wow, he did call Omarasa a "dog"!

When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

This is not going to go over well, and not just because one seldom is able to call a female of any race a "dog" without career-ending repercussions, he attributed the act to Kelly. Who is in charge in the White House?

Time to scrap the Electoral College that made this travesty of a POTUS turn the American Dream into a nightmare for the world.

It wouldn't be so bad if so many States hadn't adopted the winner take all method for allocating the Electoral College votes.

Manigault Newman said, "There's a lot of very corrupt things happening in the White House and I am going to blow the whistle on a lot of them."

And the good news is that she will this for FREE.

For the good of the country she is going to appear on TV for free.

She will write articles and books for free because she will give all proceeds away to the needy

Err,,, I just made that up, of course..

With tens of millions of unemployed, more millions suffering sickness and disease, many without healthcare, threats domestic and abroad, etc.....Why is this news?

People like this woman should be ignored. Politicians and governments should be judged more for what they do for the people, not on the basis of attention seekers like this woman.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

I am not surprised about sacking Omarosa from the White House by John Kelly. Now she wants to tell Black peoples, she was fired from the White House because of she was black.

She has broken the White House rules. So, I believe she deserved to be fired. She is one of corrupt peoples in the White House. Omarosa thinks she is better than anyone in the White House. She has been just an opportunist. She may have idea of becoming Senator or Congresswoman. She wants to represent for black peoples blah, blah, blah.

"Heh. The N word tape is coming."

I've calculated how many votes Wacky Omarosa's tapes are going to change in 2020. Drumroll, please...

Zero. Heh.

Was Stephen Calk fired for giving the loan? Was the loan illegal? Is it illegal to ask for a job in return for granting a loan?

Did his oversight committee punish him in any way? Did Mueller put him on trial too? Nope never even called as a witness.

It’s been like 3 articles in 3 days in “world news” because there is nothing left for liberals to pin their hopes on. Gotta distract from Keith Ellison and Peter Strzok somehow.

Heard Mueller wants to talk to her and ruin the last tiny bit of credibility his investigation had.

Well once he is done with the NY madam and the assistant of Roger Stone’s assistant.

"explosive tell-all book"

Who wants to read a bunch of lies and crap?

Trump: "This is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!"

Omarosa is going to lose this war of insults. Trump's an expert in this field, hehe. Hey, it's kept North Korean rockets from flying over Japan for how many months now?

Oh my!

I wasn’t aware that Manafort has the ability as a fired campaign manager to nominate anyone for anything. Was he indicted for this too?

and this has everything to do with Omarosa and nothing to do with Trump other than him being the victim of a felony crime.

Heh, the DNC and its propaganda wing, the fake news MSM, has returned once again to using the tattered race and gender identity cards to extend their losing streak to remove our President from office.

So what happens next? Nothing until the next Omarosa or Wolff or Stormy and her Creepy Porn Lawyer comes along. Rest assured; she or he is already standing in the batter's box.
