White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ripped Omarosa Manigault Newman with a blistering statement Friday in response to Omarosa’s explosive new book, calling her a “disgruntled former White House employee” who is “trying to profit off of these false attacks.”
“Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations,” Sanders said in the statement.
The president’s spokesperson dinged the media while cleverly calling attention to the contradictions in what Omarosa has previously said about Trump.
“It’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration,” the release concluded.
Omarosa claims in her book that Trump frequently used the n-word while he was on the “Celebrity Apprentice,” and that there are tapes to prove it.
(She met Trump as a contestant on the show.)
Even though common sense would tell you that if those tapes existed, they would have surfaced in 2016.
Speaking of tapes, she also claims to have secretly recorded conversations with Trump.

Another claim in the memoir is that Trump used racial slurs when referring to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway‘s husband, George Conway — he is half Filipino on his mother’s side.
George Conway, who’s been an outspoken critic of Trump, responded to the accusation, dismissing it as “all around absurd” and “ridiculous.”
