Omarosa Tells NPR She Heard Trump ‘N-Word Tape,’ Contradicting Her Own Tell-All Book

Omarosa’s book isn’t even on shelves yet and she’s already out here contradicting herself.

In an interview with NPR, Omarosa claimed she heard — with her own ears — Donald Trump use the N-word on the set of ‘The Apprentice.’

In her book, Unhinged, she says the opposite.

via NPR:

“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.

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.”

“Incredibly, this person – who shall remain nameless – picked up the phone.

We spoke.

On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said – yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant – and when he’d said them.

During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track.

For over a year I’d been so afraid of hearing the specifics from someone who’d been in the room. Hearing the truth freed me from that fear. And only now that it’s gone, do I realize just how heavy it’s been.”

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.

Her search for the N-word tape is a core piece of the narrative Manigault Newman weaves in Unhinged, a memoir that covers her time on the reality TV program The Apprentice that starred the future president, then the 2016 Trump campaign and the White House. This discrepancy in her account of hearing the tape may cast doubt on other claims in the book, many of which are explosive.

In Unhinged, Manigault Newman writes as both a Trump world insider, overjoyed at his election, and as a voice of the liberal resistance airing concerns about his rhetoric, policies and mental state.

At this point someone needs to get their hands on those tapes and release them. We doubt it’ll change anything, but at least we’ll know the truth.

BEST DEAL UPDATE:

Omarosa To Release ‘Unhinged’ Tell-All About Trump White House

If you’ve been hoping for Omarosa to spill the tea about her time in Trump’s White House… the wait is over, as the exiled former aide to 45 has bagged a seven-figure book deal with a division of Simon & Schuster, Gallery Books.

The reality-tv star is expected to dish about her time in the White House and her relationship with Donald Trump. The Daily Mail reports that the book promises to deliver the juiciest insider scoop about Trump and his administration.

Sources tell DailyMail.com that Omarosa has been a bit  ‘downhearted’ dealing with the aftermath of being exiled by the man who she once called her friend.

The book is expected to be published next month.

Once she was gone from the White House, Trump cut her off completely. He never tweeted about her or said a bad thing like he’s done to others; but he ceased all correspondences with her,” the insider claimed.

Omarosa went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother but has since struggled to book speaking gigs or appearances. She waited to secure the best publishing deal.

“She was smart to drop nuggets of information while on Celebrity Big Brother to get people tantalized. That certainly helped in her finally getting the best publishing,” the source said.

“She knew that Celebrity Big Brother might make or break for her landing a book deal and she maximized that moment.”

Omarosa, who served as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, was allegedly fired last December following reports of an altercation with Chief of Staff John Kelly.

On Wednesday it was reported that she has been interviewed by federal investigators in the Trump-Cohen probe.

SPECIAL DISCOUNT DEAL:

Meghan Markle’s Hatin’ Half-Sister Is Writing a Tell-All Book

Screenshot/Good Morning Britain

Black Twitter could not be controlled last Monday when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement.

While we were fruitlessly attempting to contain our excitement at the prospect of a Black duchess, the half-sister of the soon-to-be member of the Royal family, Samantha Grant, was concocting material for memoir Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.

The 57-year-old, who is a former actress and model, began doing press for the book in October. During an interview with Good Morning Britain, she clarified that the memoir, which already appears worthy of claims of libel from the title alone, would not be a defamatory “tell-all:”

“First of all, it’s only a tell-all in that I go through and recant some of the beautiful nuances of our lives, our family home. But more importantly, it has to do with the inter-racial evolution of this country through the lens of my life and my family since the Civil Rights Act until present, and how that intersects with this recent event with my sister, you know, my feelings about it, my family’s feelings about it, and how sad it was going through it all. But it’s more of a beautiful, warm, witty story of our lives and my life.”

But given the timing of the book and earlier claims by Grant that her sister was a “shallow social climber,” her intentions appear to hover between 15 seconds of fame and decrying her sister’s reputation. She’s also alleged Markle mistreated her family. Additionally, Metro U.K. reports the twice-divorced Grant is bankrupt.

“The royal family would be appalled by what she’s done to her own family,” Grant said according to the publication. “The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry.”

Grant’s mother told the Daily Mail in April that her daughter has been jealous of Markle for years.

“I am very serious when I say she has dogged on Meghan forever,” she said according to the article published in April. “She has never liked Meghan and she’s always been jealous of her.”

Welp. Nothing to see here folks. This looks like a clear case of hatin’ gone wild.
