As Twitchy told you earlier this week, Omarosa Manigault-Newman supposedly secretly recorded conversations between her and President Trump before she got the boot last December. And now, she’s teasing those recordings to sell her forthcoming tell-all book, “UNHINGED.”
Unsurprisingly, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is less than thrilled:

Sanders’ point about Omarosa’s about-face is a fair one (though Trump himself has made his fair share of lies and false accusations). But honestly, is anyone genuinely surprised that Omarosa turned out to be a shameless opportunist willing to turn on Trump without blinking? Omarosa’s made no secret about the kind of person she is. Surely Trump knew what he was getting when he hired her. And if he didn’t, that doesn’t speak well of his own judgment.
Long story short: We’re officially living in a reality show.
