Yes, in a “pigs flying” moment, leftist NPR actually called out Omarosa for ‘contradicting’ herself in her charge of President Trump’s “racism.”
In an interview Friday, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman contradicted a claim in her forthcoming book that she heard a tape of President Trump using the “n-word.”
Manigault Newman insisted in an NPR interview that she heard Trump utter the pejorative in an audio file recorded on the set of “The Apprentice.”
“Hearing it changed everything for me,” Manigault Newman told NPR host Rachel Martin….
But as Martin noted in the interview, Manigault Newman wrote in her book, “Unhinged,” that she was merely told of the tape. She does not suggest in the tell-all that she has actually heard Trump’s voice.
In the book, due out Tuesday, Manigault Newman wrote that she spoke by phone about the tape to a person who she refuses to name….
Martin pressed Manigault Newman on the discrepancy.
“Did you actually hear the tape?” she asked.
“I did,” Manigault Newman responded, adding: “Girl, did you read my book?”
Martin said that she had read the book and insisted that Manigault Newman’s account didn’t add up.
The contradiction is not the only flaw in Manigault Newman’s book. On Friday, GOP pollster Frank Luntz and George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, disputed bombshell allegations made by Manigault Newman.
Luntz disputed the book’s claim that he overheard Trump use the “n-word,” saying the allegation is “flat-out false.” Manigault Newman responded on Twitter Saturday morning, saying that former Trump campaign aide Katrina Pierson relayed to her that Luntz mentioned that he “had info about the n-word tape” during a conference call….
The White House also pushed back on Manigault Newman’s claim that Trump got into a heated argument with the White House’s chief usher over a tanning bed in the White House private residence. A senior White House official told reporters that a tanning bed is not in the residence.
