The Company You Keep (UPDATED)

Former Trump groupie and reality show villainess Omarosa Manigault-Newman was unceremoniously kicked out of the White (Supremacist) House last December, and has a supposed "tell all" book "Unhinged" about to be released. But today, it's reported that she secretly taped bigot and sociopath Donald "Rump" Trump and has been playing some of those tapes for others. From the Daily Beast report:
"For months, it has been rumored that Manigault had clandestinely recorded on her smartphone 'tapes' of unspecified private discussions she had in the West Wing. Audio actually does exist, and even stars Manigault’s former boss.

One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the so-called 'Omarosa tapes' described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person."
While the sources say that the conversations were "everyday chatter," Rump is absolutely paranoid about being taped, witness his meltdown when he realized that his former fixer Michael Cohen had taped him frequently over the years, and that the FBI had those tapes. He also falsely accused President Obama of wiretapping him during the 2016 campaign.

We'll be hearing more trash talk about Rump from Omarosa as she goes around the country promoting her book, due out next week. With the various criminal investigations closing in and troubling election results pointing to a November blue wave, some serious backbiting from Omarosa can't help but mess with Rump's sick mind all the more.

UPDATE:  Omarosa is claiming she was offered $15,000 a month as hush money to keep quiet about her time working with Rump.

It's one more shiny object being dangled in front of us, one that won't matter in the scheme of things. Everyone already knows that Trump is a dick, that he obsesses over stupid ego issues, and that a shallower human doesn't exist, but if it convinces one more person that Trump is a disaster, bring it.

donnah -- We only love it from the perspective of her messing with his insecure mind. As far as real content, she was on the periphery of activities in the White (Supremacist) House and will have little, if anything, substantive to offer in the tapes or her book.

If it worries Trump and makes him even more scared, then by all means, share the tape!
