Omarosa Manigault-Newman is not backing down and on Tuesday spoke to MSNBC‘s Katy Tur and doubled-down on her criticisms of President Donald Trump, saying he “should be afraid of being exposed as the misogynist and racist that he is,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
This comes just days after Trump’s unhinged Twitter tirade against the savvy former White House insider, labeling Manigault-Newman as “wacky”, “deranged” and a “low-life” in a series of blistering tweets. Then on yesterday, upon the release of “Unhinged,” Trump reached a new low in a tweet when he called Manigault-Newman a ‘dog.’
“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!” Trump tweeted.
Manigault-Newman addressed the low blow.
“I think that it just shows you that if he would say that publicly, what else would he say about me privately?” she said.
She continues: “He has absolutely no respect for women, for African-Americans, as evidence by him instructing the chief of staff to lock me for two hours in the Situation Room, to harass me, to threaten me and say that things could get very ugly for me and that there would be damage to my reputation.”
Manigault-Newman has been on a media blitz promoting her juicy tell-all memoir Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House which has caused quite a stir. In her first interview with an African-American media outlet, TheGrio, with Natasha Alford, Manigault-Newman recalled the moment when she heard the nasty, derogatory comments from Trump and her reaction.
“I do not answer to that of low-life or dog as he said,” she told Alford.
“So, my reaction was that I was very, very sad and also concerned. And I think that all Americans should be concerned when the President of the United States is showing mental decline, lack of impulse control and he’s downright mean,” she said.
In her MSNBC interview, Manigault-Newman said Trump has a limited vocabulary.
“Because of his small ability to communicate, he would give them these derogatory nicknames and it just wasn’t appropriate,” Manigault-Newman said.
“He does treat women differently, I think as evidence by the lack of female appointees in his administration; the lack of high-level senior advisers, women, in his administration and throughout all the different agencies. He treats them different because he believes that they’re beneath him.”
“He would grab women, kiss them, unsolicited, anytime, any day,” she alleged.
