In Omarosa’s new book, she claims Frank Luntz told her he heard President Trump say the “N-word.”
Only um… he didn’t.
I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word.
Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify. Very shoddy work.

Soooo how is she coming back from this?
Well…um…SHE HEARD IT. Yup. She totally heard it.
Uh… that’s not what you said in your book, punkin’.

During the NPR interview, Omarosa alleges she “heard” a tape of Trump saying the N-word.
“Hearing it changed everything for me,” former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman told NPR on Friday.
Manigault Newman was referring to what she calls the “N-word tape” — a long-rumored but never surfaced tape of Donald Trump on the set of The Apprentice allegedly using the racial slur. In her interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin, Manigault Newman claims to have heard the tape and heard Trump using that slur on the tape.
In her book, however, she writes that she heard “about it” from OTHER PEOPLE.
But that’s not what it says in her tell-all book, Unhinged, due out on Tuesday.
When asked by Martin about the discrepancy during the interview, Manigault Newman insisted Martin must not have read the book (she had) and pointed to a section at the very end of it.
But in that section, Manigault Newman doesn’t actually describe hearing the tape. She writes of calling one of her “sources” who had a lead on the “N-word tape.”
So how does she justify this? She literally pretends her book says something it doesn’t say.
During the interview with Martin, Manigault Newman read the section aloud, then insisted it described her hearing the tape rather than what the words on the page state, which is that she heard an account of what was on the tape. “I heard the tape,” she said when pressed.
Oh, so now Omarosa says she HEARD Trump using the N-word, and we’d know that if we read the page in her book about it (which definitely says she heard *about it* from other people). Got it. https://t.co/b6ZZWmp17o

As Sarah Sanders said, Omarosa is CLEARLY “trying to profit off these false attacks.” I mean… she can’t even keep her story straight.
