In an exclusive, The Daily Beast is reporting that Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who resigned from her White House position in December, made secret recordings of conversations with President Donald Trump and is leveraging them while shopping around her upcoming tell-all book, “UNHINGED.”
EXCLUSIVE: Omarosa secretly recorded conversations with Trump while working in The White House, and she has played them for people while pushing her new book "UNHINGED," sources tell The Daily Beast https://t.co/5DSPXCpccJ

One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the so-called “Omarosa tapes” described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person.
The mere existence of such recordings represent a dramatic betrayal of trust by a one-time Trump confidant who has since abandoned years of professed loyalty to the president and has apparently decided to profit off her years of closeness to Trump.
If Omarosa turns out to actually be a backstabbing social climber using the presidency to catalault her own personnel ambitions, then I just don’t know if I can believe in much of anything anymore.

Yea, I'm real shocked that Omarosa couldn't be trusted. Did Trump just sleep through the Apprentice?

Trump: Hi Omarosa why are you pointing your lapel at me
Omarosa: No reason testing 1 2 3

Trump: I only hire the best people.
Michael Cohen and Omarosa: <lean in closer to Trump> Sorry, sir. Could you say that again? <snickering> https://t.co/7BOLLy5TAf

Wait – Omarosa’s book is titled “Unhinged” and this is NOT an autobiography?

I’m still not buying her book

So many thoughts here:
1) I wished I cared enough about anything to secretly tape it;
2) Who would ever imagine that Omarosa couldn't be trusted?; and
3) I'm looking forward to the media now portraying Omarosa as a hero.

Michael Cohen has Trump on tape. Now Omarosa has Trump on tape. Dude is popping up on other people's tapes like '08 Lil Wayne.

It appears that Omarosa failed to turn over all of her presidential records (audio recordings count for reasons you may recall) when she departed the White House…

And as usual, there’s always a tweet:
Honest Omarosa: she won't backstab-she'll come at you from the front.

Even we’re beginning to suspect she’s not the nicest person around. But get used to seeing her on TV again; she’s got a book to sell.

She really ought to be appearing on Fox News’ “Cashin’ In.”
