Former Apprentice contestant and ex-White House adviser writes in new memoir that she witnessed ‘truly appalling things’

Donald Trump is a “racist” who has used the “N-word” repeatedly, Omarosa Manigault Newman, once the most prominent African American in the White House, claims in a searing memoir.

The future US president was caught on mic uttering the taboo racial slur “multiple times” during the making of his reality TV show The Apprentice and there is a tape to prove it, according to Manigault Newman, citing three unnamed sources.

Trump has been haunted from around the time of his election in 2016 by allegations that outtakes from the reality TV show exist in which he is heard saying the N-word and using other offensive language.

In her book, Unhinged, a copy of which was obtained by the Guardian ahead of its publication next week, the former Apprentice participant insists that the reports are true, although she does not say she heard him use the word herself.


She also claims that she personally witnessed Trump use racial epithets about the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway, who is half Filipino. “Would you look at this George Conway article?” she quotes the president as saying. “F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo.”

Both flip and goo-goo are terms of racial abuse for Filipinos.

Critics have previously questioned Manigault Newman’s credibility and are likely to accuse her of seeking revenge against the administration after her abrupt dismissal last December.

At the time, she writes, she felt a “growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular.”

Recalling her sudden and unceremonious departure, she writes: “It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist. Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.”

Trump hosted NBC’s The Apprentice from 2004-2015 before running for the presidency and still likes to laud his high ratings.

His insurgent election campaign was rocked in October 2016 by the release of an Access Hollywood tape in which he bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy”. The media firestorm prompted Bill Pruitt, a producer on the first two seasons of The Apprentice, to tweet that there were “far worse” tapes of Trump behind the scenes of the show.

Further allegations emerged that Trump had used the N-word in the recordings. Then, following the New York property tycoon’s shocking victory over Hillary Clinton, the actor and comedian Tom Arnold claimed to have the video of Trump using racist language.

I have the outtakes to The Apprentice where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” Arnold told the Seattle-based radio station KIRO. “It was him sitting in that chair saying the N-word, saying the C-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children.”


But Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which owns the rights to the reality TV show, and its British creator, Mark Burnett, have resisted pressure to release the footage because of “various contractual and legal requirements”.

Once close to Trump, Manigault Newman was among his most high-profile supporters during the election campaign and drew a top salary of $179,700 as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison. She held her April 2017 wedding at Trump’s luxury hotel, close to the White House.

Hers is the second memoir from a former Trump administration member, following that of the ex-press secretary Sean Spicer, but it was always expected to be less adulatory. This week the Daily Beast reported that she had secretly recorded conversations with the president and “leveraged” this while seeking a book deal. On Sunday she is due to appear on NBC’s flagship political show Meet the Press.

Some commentators have struck a note of scepticism about her book. Brian Stelter, senior media correspondent at CNN, wrote in an email newsletter: “Is former ‘Apprentice’ star Omarosa Manigault-Newman a reliable source of info about the Trump White House? Buckle up for debates about that in the coming week. Because she’s about to betray Trump in a new tell-all book.”

For its part, the White House has previously dismissed criticisms from her. In February the deputy press secretary, Raj Shah, said: “Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice and this was the fourth time we let her go. She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”

In the book, she recalls how in late 2016 Trump’s team held a conference call and scrambled for how to respond to the tape but it never came out. Then a source from The Apprentice contacted her and claimed to be in possession of it. Trump was in office and Manigault Newman continued to investigate.

She continues: “By that point, three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape. They all told me that President Trump hadn’t just dropped a single N-word bomb. He’d said it multiple times throughout the show’s taping during off-camera outtakes, particularly during the first season of The Apprentice.”

Recalling that she appeared on the first season, Manigault Newman reflects: “I would look like the biggest imbecile alive for supporting a man who used that word.” She says she confided in the former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who said, “I need to hear it for myself,” and continued to ask her frequently about what progress she was making.

She believes that Hicks told the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, that Omarosa was close to getting her hands on the tape, and this gave him cause to terminate her job, though he found a different pretext.

Four months after her departure, she spoke by phone to one of her Apprentice sources. “I was told exactly what Donald Trump said – yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant – and when he’s said them. During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track.”

Manigault Newman also recalls her interactions with Trump during the filming of The Celebrity Apprentice in late 2007 – a time when the little known Democrat Barack Obama was in the ascendent. “During boardroom outtakes, Donald talked about Obama often. He hated him. He never explained why, but now I believe it was because Obama was black.”


In another damning passage, she describes his “broken outlook” and how “the bricks in his racist wall kept getting higher”, wondering if he did “want to start a race war”. She adds: “The only other explanation was that his mental state was so deteriorated that the filter between the worst impulses of his mind and his mouth were completely gone.”

The book comes days after Trump faced renewed allegations of racism over his persistent descriptions of the congresswoman Maxine Waters as having a “low IQ” and CNN journalist Don Lemon as “the dumbest man on television”, as well as criticism of the basketball star LeBron James. This weekend marks the first anniversary of the white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, that erupted in deadly violence; the president claimed there were “very fine people on both sides”.

Elsewhere in Unhinged, published by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, Manigault Newman takes aim at Trump’s sexism. Recalling more outtakes from The Apprentice, she says he asked personal questions about female contestants such as “What do you think she’s like in bed?” and “Do you think she’s sexy?” He allegedly asked male contestants: “Who you think would be better in bed between the two of them?”

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

It goes without saying that Trump and Omarosa deserve each other. 

Any tapes of outtakes from the Apprentice that contain Trump using racial epithets should be made public. The person who owns the right to them is an evangelical Christian, so he should ask himself, "what would Jesus do"?

Does anyone remember when she was in the Clinton White House?

"In the 1990s, she enjoyed a brief stint in the Clinton administration, briefly serving in both the White House and the office of Vice President Al Gore. Neither of the jobs lasted long, as she was reportedly a nightmare to work with, to the point where at least one female colleague wanted to inflict physical violence on her."

As have many others who will eventually release their memoirs exposing what every sane American already knows, that Donald Trump is a despicable worthless self absorbed pig of a human being. While most Americans are not surprised at her revelations, those who continue to cover their eyes and ears and prefer to bury their heads in the sand will continue to dismiss and disregard any and all evidence of Trumps corruption and racist nature till they're pushing daisies. Admitting their pick is a horrid, reprehensible bigot of monumental proportions would be an admission that they harbor similar sentiments, so they continue to defend the indefensible.

Not quite. I will agree that by the letter of the law you are correct but... There is a big difference between free speech and hate speech. Above is HATE speech, which serves NO USEFUL purpose. Kneeling is free speech, (even though they aren't actually speaking), and it hurts no one. 

BTW: I am a vet, and as a vet, I completely support their right to kneel to bring awareness to a cause. Most that oppose them kneeling incorrectly assume they are protesting the US flag, which they aren't.

My vet son feels the same.  They are protesting the racism in the entire US justice system which is biased against them.  Trump should have stayed the hell out of it, but he wanted to vilify the kneeling players (kneeling is more respectful than standing, which makes this whole thing even more asinine) to appeal to his racist base and deflect from his problems.  This is just a Trump distraction which his followers dutifully salivate to as commanded.  You think they'd be embarrassed to be so predictable and ignorant, but they just enjoy following the circus act.

I think we have to be very careful with this type of approach.  The Supreme Court has never created a category of speech that is defined by its hateful conduct, labeled it hate speech, and said that that is categorically excluded by the first amendment. Speech cannot be punished just because of its hateful content. It can be hateful and vile and make a listener physically ill,  but we can not allow the government to label it and ban it. The minute that is allowed to happen we lose the protection of the First Amendment because as sure as the sun rises in the East the pendulum will swing and what will then be declared hate speech? 

That's why I love this quote from The American President.

'You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, and who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.'

in a sad way , you are what they are also protesting about. your comment proves exactly the problem which is the un spoken truth.  the truth is folks like you dont have to pay attention. You can go on with out any interference in your day to day routine with out a cop interrupting it just because you are different.  you dont have to worry about anyone getting killed by the police just because the officer is afraid of them. You dont have to worry about an officer judging you based on the conduct of others, and treats a misdemeanor stop / ticket or citation worthy with a felony mentality. 

it seems the way some people learn of stuff is when it effects them. So if you have a national audience weekly why in the world would you not make some of them(folks like you) be REMINDED that there fellow Americans arent treated equal.  they dont have rights depending on the cop and a few of them die at the hands of police officers who use deadly force before any other type of defensive tactic. 

in the end, i would never want you to have to experience the death of anyone in your family due to police violence.  but at the same time i really hope you can take it upon yourself and figure out how you would deal with life in america if you knew you just might not make it through day depending on the cop that stops you. 

ugh SMH ugh

What I see here is another Comey/Liberal moment...

For years, liberals have demeaned, called names, denounced, ridiculed Omarosa during her time on and after the apprentice, for years as she said positive things about Trump, and during her time in the White House.

Now, because she claims things, without proof, of Trump, she is being hailed a hero by the left.

I wonder (not really) what liberals will do to her when it is revealed she has no such tape and she has been exposed as nothing more than a disgruntled ex employee...like Comey did.

Liberals are so predictable.

And with this book she has done the make it til you break it step, which means her window of opportunity to engage in any new challenges she has just thrown out the window. This book shows she only has loyalty to herself and the need for money. 

So i am sure she will be back on a reality show soon, with her bad attitude and yet it has provided for some funds. So i cant hate on her because she is following the american way by finding ways to keep that cash flow.
