Omarosa’s Third Tape Released: Campaign aides plot about Trump n-word video
As Omarosa Manigault Newman continued her whirlwind media tour today on CBS This Morning to promote her new book Unhinged: Inside the Trump White House she released an explosive third tape.
The former reality TV star turned White House aide revealed what she said was a secret recording of several of President Donald Trump’s campaign aides discussing how to handle potential fallout if a video of Trump using a racial slur surfaced.
Manigault Newman released the tape to CBS News.
She identified the three Trump campaign aides as Katrina Pierson, a spokeswoman for the campaign; Lynne Patton, an assistant to Trump’s son Eric; and Jason Miller, chief spokesman for the campaign.
″I am trying to find out at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it,” Pierson can be heard saying in the recording of the 2016 conversation.
POTUS says former White House staffer @Omarosa lied when she called him a racist who has said the N-word on tape. But a new recording, obtained by @CBSNews overnight, seems to back up Omarosa’s story that several Trump advisers discussed an alleged tape during the 2016 campaign. pic.twitter.com/tV3R6P2TvE

Manigault Newman has maintained that she has heard a tape of Donald Trump using the n-word while working on the Apprentice.
The president denies the explosive allegation and says an Apprentice producer confirms no such tapes exist.
But why would you need someone to confirm it if you didn’t say it?
“[The Apprentice producer] Mark Burnett called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa,” Trump tweeted on Monday morning.
“I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up.
“Look at her MANY recent quotes saying such wonderful and powerful things about me – a true Champion of Civil Rights – until she got fired.
“Omarosa had Zero credibility with the Media (they didn’t want interviews) when she worked in the White House. Now that she says bad about me, they will talk to her. Fake News!”
And now the fight has now sunk to a new low with the commander-in-chief tweeting derogatory names about his former aide that have many saying that the n-word tape must exist to illicit such a strong reaction from the president.
Trump wrote: “When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog.”

During the CBS interview this morning Manigault Newman said she did not hear the recording of Trump using the n-word slur until after she finished writing Unhinged.
“I had an opportunity to fly out to California, and the person allowed me to hear it,” she told CBS News. “Had I heard it while working in the White House, I would have left immediately.”
Buckle up, Trump: Omarosa also announced that she has Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on tape too.
