No Trust in Trumpland
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump continually talked about having only the best people around him if he was elected president. Now we see how many people have left for a variety of mostly bad reasons. So, there’s one of the promises he smashed to bits.
The White House has a problem on their hands. After they dismissed Omarosa Manigault from the administration, she spent the next nine months writing a book about Trump. The book is titled Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. I doubt if I will spend the money or take the time to read this book, but there is a brilliant marketing ploy going on here that will damage the Donald more than the book.
Omarosa recorded many conversations during her tenure and she’s dropping these little tidbits directly on the head of the reality star in the White House. The first recording that Ms. Manigault released was her firing by General John Kelly. This took place in the Situation Room and it might as well have been CNN’s Situation Room. In what is supposed to be a totally secure area she recorded her dismissal behind closed and locked doors. Then she released a tape of her call to the President where he wouldn’t take the blame for firing her, claiming that Kelly acted on his own. Isn’t that double lying?
She claims she was threatened and asserts that the reason she recorded conversations at her job is because everybody in the White House lies, including the President. She wanted to have a record of what she said. Like Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, everyone wanted to protect themselves from the head liar. None of this is surprising, but it does verify how dysfunctional things are in Trumpworld.
One of the best tweets in this Omarosa-gate conspiracy was from Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, “It is maybe the accidental self-inoculating genius of Donald Trump that in surrounding himself for decades with hard-core thugs, crooks, charlatans, cheats & liars, if and when they finally turn on Trump their lack of credibility continues to serve Trump.” On the side of clarity, Bharara was told by Trump that he wanted him to stay in his position in the Southern District of New York, but then fired him. That would make Donald Trump a two-faced liar.
Omarosa is playing the race card by calling the President of the United States a racist. Hate to break the news to you, Ms. Manigault, but please tell us something we don’t already know. If we have him on tape saying the N-word I have to ask, is that worse than “grabbing pussy?” We already know that Trump has conned the evangelicals, who would have to take a position if the tape is released, but the far right, especially those who cling to a white Nationalism persuasion, won’t care.
Trump’s disregard for the significance or power of women is notorious. If he thinks he can grab them and they will never grab back, he is mistaken. The network of terror he inflicts on people is usually followed by a cadre of lawyers who go after those people who get in his way. He cannot do that as easily while President. The web of deceit this man and his associates have woven around the truth is an attempt to cut off the air supply to anyone who discredits this fake president.
He doesn’t realize that his deadly game of vengeance could have driven us to war with North Korea, and his misaligned priorities have certainly driven a wedge between the United States and our allies. His angry tantrums and obsessive sickness never to abandon his reckless promises from the campaign have driven us to a real trade war. He could have achieved some of his trade goals without upsetting the apple cart. He will have no answer for the farmers and manufacturers in this country who will be hurt by the tariffs.
Omarosa has certainly gotten Trump’s attention. Look what came out of his silly little hands today (8-13-2018), “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired! While I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, 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!”
Now I don’t want to give this dingbat that Kelly fired any credibility, but the stupid motherfucker in the Oval office is the reason she was there. He admits that in his tweet. He says she begged for a job and he said, almost referencing that it was against his best judgement (whatever the hell that is), that he hired her anyway. He shows the world that he is a bad judge of character, and that alone should disqualify him from being president.
Omarosa was on the job for a year, well long enough for Trump to know that he had made a mistake. Why did he wait so long? Was it because she is African-American? I don’t know about you, but anyone making $179,000 a year out of taxpayer bucks ought to have a good reason to be there.
Once again, Trump has exposed his incompetence. One might ask what the hell Omarosa did at the White House. Well, she was Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison. Now, with each tape she releases she sure is doing her job of liaising with the public. Some say the lady has dozens of tapes in her purse. Keep them coming Omarosa, for this rich tabloid material further proves what a low-life lying son-of-a-bitch Donald Trump really is.
