There are SO many incompetancies about Trump and his administration, but perhaps the most prominent one(s) are regarding the safety and security of the nation.. because Trump himself, with all his buffoonery, is a clear and present danger to the security of the nation. He knows not what he does.
So now not only do we have the Russians on our collective cyber ass doorstep in meddling with our election at-will, the President paling around with Putin with the obvious suggestion they are in cahoots in some form yet to be revealed by Mueller, and the disenfranchisement and alienation of our NATO allies in exchange with hob-knobbing with the world’s dictators, we now have another threat to national security… Omarosa Manigault Newman … previously best known for her polarizing character on NBC’s “The Apprentice.”.
Her “tell-all” book is coming out and in it she uses to establish facts and credibility in her alleged phone recorders of sensitive conversations inside areas of the White House deemed secure from such eavedroppings.
It seems she has violated whatever national security protocols are in place at the White House (which is apparently a joke in itself) as she has managed to record with her phone conversations in the Oval Office, inside the office of the White House Chief of Staff, inside the Situation Room… and gawd knows where else. She has recorded the President himself, her own firing conversation with John Kelly, and other White House “reality show cast members”.
Here’s a CNN report of her recording with Kelly firing her as revealed on CBS Meet The Press… for apparently “integrity violations” (seems Trump himself also qualifies… but that’s not the issue at hand).
Honestly, that’s besides the point. At first blush the content of her book, “Unhinged: An Insiders Account of the Trump White House”, while very expectedly being disclaimed by the White House (Trump already calling her a “low life”), is so far being greeted with some measure of doubt as to her general credibility. It’s meant as an insider’s view of the Trump administration.. and an insider who was once an ally, now turned “enemy” of the administration. According to CNN’s Kevi Liptak…
In it, Manigault Newman describes a mentally waning, racist and lewd, charismatic but emotionally abusive, man overseeing a conniving cast of aides and family members whose varied goals rarely include the betterment of the nation.
To quote her…
“Donald Trump, who would attack civil rights icons and professional athletes, who would go after grieving black widows, who would say there were good people on both sides, who endorsed an accused child molester; Donald Trump, and his decisions and his behavior, was harming the country. I could no longer be a part of this madness,” she wrote.
Again according to Liptak…
The memoir features Manigault Newman describing having witnessed disturbing scenes of the President making lascivious comments about his own daughter Ivanka, who Manigault Newman alleges “uses his obsession with her to her advantage.” Meantime, Trump is quoted dismissing his eldest son Donald Trump Jr. as a “f**k up.”
And she compares the President’s mind to a dull blade, suggesting he no longer pronounces long words correctly and has trouble recollecting his rationale for major decisions, including firing FBI Director James Comey. The deterioration, she posits, is perhaps due to his copious intake of Diet Coke.
Obviously she suffers from her own credibility issues and is perceived as a money-hungry opportunist at best. If she is telling the truth in witnessing these things in the administration then we have some more serious issues at play regarding Trump’s sanity overall. But with the doubts circling around much of her book being unsubstantiated.. and now her revelations of having recorded conversations in secure areas of the White House.. to me she’s a good antagonist to the security of the nation and should be prosecuted as such… and not be acclaimed as some administration hero whistle blower. She’s in a position of being perceived as “crying wolf” because of her past… but as with that fable, she may be accurate and who will listen?
Personally speaking.. what she has alleged as being Trumps daily demonstration of certain lapses in sanity I have already sensed is going on, and I am sure I am not alone.
Be afraid.. be very afraid.
