Trump has had extreme misfortune as of late. After firing Omarosa Manigault for reasons of integrity, which is laughable enough, Donald was hit with something he never saw coming. Manigault has turned on him, and not just by badmouthing him in the media, but by secretly recording him in the White House.
Manigault released a recording this morning in which Trump was pretending not to know why she was being fired from her position, saying, “Goddamnit. I don’t love you leaving at all.” Manigault was not supposed to have a recording device during these conversations with the president, and that is a huge concern with people like Dan Rather, who said this moments ago on his Facebook page.
I had hoped to escape this news cycle without mentioning Omarosa – a minor story and distraction. But the latest…
Trump’s inability to run a tight ship is of very high concern among the people who understand just how risky it is to hire non-professional people to fill highly important roles in the White House. Who else was recording? What did they catch the president saying? One can only imagine how those meetings go with Trump thinking he’s in a safe space.
What happens if these tapes get into the hands of foreign officials? Do they put the nation in danger of retaliation? Do they put the U.S. in a position of weakness?
