In the latest instance of Donald Trump hiring an unethical and unqualified person to do his dirty work, only for that person to betray him, former Apprentice star Omarosa has published a book which accuses Trump of being everything from racist to senile. Trump took a moment out of his latest vacation to go berserk about Omarosa, raising questions about what’s really been going on all this time.
Donald Trump hired Omarosa for a high paying yet poorly defined White House job, but eventually Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her and escorted her out of the building. She’s naturally trying to cash in by publishing a new tell-all book about her time in the White House, and she claims to have tapes which back up some of the claims she’s made. But on the whole, it’s difficult to figure out whether to believe Omarosa, who is a serial liar, or Trump, who is also a serial liar. In any case, they’re now at war with each other.
Trump came face to face with pool reporters today, and one of them asked him this question: “Do you feel betrayed by Omarosa?” His answer: “Lowlife. She’s a lowlife.” Wait, so if she’s a lowlife, why did he give her a senior adviser position in the White House? Oh right, because he prefers to hire garbage people, as they’re more likely to be willing to do his corrupt bidding.
We’ll see what Omarosa has on tape, once she finally reveals it. In the mean time, we can’t help but notice the pattern here. Donald Trump used Michael Cohen as his “lawyer” for several years, but now that Cohen is preparing to cut a plea deal against him, Trump is also accusing Cohen of being a lowlife. It appears Trump is only bothered by the moral failings of his underlings once they stop being personally loyal to him.
