President Trump is not the sort of President that we expected to have, and it’s completely acceptable to admit that. He’s unorthodox, and he’s changing the way that the political game is played here in the United States.
Unfortunately, that also means that the players around him are beginning to take advantage of the new rules. For every “regular” politician living out their Deep State tenure, there is at least one, maybe 2, new American politicos, whose intimate knowledge of web trends and social media make them a danger to the old guard in ways that the aging overlords didn’t even know existed.
Now, for the second time in as many weeks, we are discovering that this modern, tech-savvy snake in the grass is a danger even at the highest levels of politics…and even in the Oval Office.
Manigault-Newman, who prior to working for the administration appeared as a contestant on Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice,” is coming out with a tell-all book about her experience in the White House. The book, titled “Unhinged,” is set to be released on Aug. 14.
She wouldn’t be the only person to have recorded her interactions with the president: Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and sometime-fixer, is known to have recorded Trump as well. One such recording was recently released and revealed Trump discussing possible payment to a former Playboy model with whom he was accused of having an affair.
The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.
Simon & Schuster, the publisher of “Unhinged,” responded to the Daily Beast in a statement. “Without commenting on the specific contents of UNHINGED,” the spokesperson said, “we are confident that Omarosa Manigault Newman can substantiate her highly-anticipated account of life inside the Trump White House.”
This publicity stunt by Manigault-Newman comes on the heels of a legal challenge by alleged former mistress to Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels; an aging adult actress who used her allegations as a promotion for her “Make America Horny Again” tour of strip clubs.
