Trump attacks ‘wacky,’ ‘vicious,’ ‘not-smart’ former protégé Omarosa

(Yahoo) President Trump coined a new nickname for former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as she releases secret audio recordings related to her firing: “Wacky Omarosa.”

On Monday morning, Trump tweeted that Manigault Newman, who rose to prominence as a contestant on “The Apprentice,” begged him for a position in his administration with “tears in her eyes.” Trump said he gave her a job despite how disliked she was in the White House and said she was “vicious,” “not smart” and regularly missed meetings.
