“He Said It”: Omarosa Releases Audio Of Trump Campaign Discussing N-Word Tape

As President Trump calls Omarosa a dog on Twitter, Omarosa releases new audio that appears to reveal Trump campaign officials discussing how to “spin” the tape of Trump using the n-word.

In her new book “Unhinged,” Omarosa Manigault Newman makes some explosive claims about her time in the White House. Omarosa pans President Trump an unhinged “racist, misogynist and bigot.” From claiming she was contacted by the FBI to claims that she was offered hush money payments, this book is full of bombshell claims.

One of the claims receiving a lot of attention (although not confirmed) is that there is a tape of Donald Trump repeatedly saying the word “nigger” while on the set of his NBC show “The Apprentice.”

On Tuesday, there was more evidence that appears to bolster the possibility of the tape’s existence.

The recording is of a conversation Omarosa had with then-assistant to Eric Trump, Lynne Patton, Campaign Spokesperson Katrina Pierson, and Campaign Communications Director Jason Miller. You can hear some of the people named discussing how to contain the fallout from the tape being released:

“I am trying to find at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it,” Pierson is heard saying.

Patton then described a conversation she had with then-candidate Trump about making the slur.

Patton: “I said, ‘Well, sir, can you think of anytime where this happened?’ And he said, ‘no.'”

Omarosa: “Well, that is not true.”

Patton: “He goes, how do you think I should handle it and I told him exactly what you just said, Omarosa, which is well, it depends on what scenario you are talking about. And he said, well, why don’t you just go ahead and put it to bed.”

Pierson: “He said. No, he said it. He is embarrassed by it.”

Pierson explicitly denied having said that last part of the recording while on Fox News.

The Trump Campaign is now taking legal action against Omarosa.

This tape release came as President Trump has been attacking Omarosa on Twitter, and used what many saw as a sexist and racist term directed at Omarosa – calling her a dog.

A July Quinnipiac University National Poll found that 49% of Americans think President Donald Trump is a racist.
