Trump calls former aide Omarosa a ‘dog’

President Donald Trump lashed out at his former “Apprentice” and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman in especially angry terms, slamming her as a “dog” and a “crazed, crying lowlife” as her tell-all book hit stores.

Manigault Newman – who first gained fame as a contestant on Trump’s reality TV show – has dripped out recordings of embarrassing private conversations at the White House as she promotes a memoir about her time with “The Donald.”

Her book – which paints Trump as a racist, liar and a “germophobe” with a “total lack of empathy” — has plunged the White House and the president into fresh crisis, and her comments to the media have dominated US headlines for days.

Team Trump responded furiously, launching a campaign to discredit her and pursuing legal action against her for breaking an apparent non-disclosure agreement.

Trump had already branded “Omarosa” – as she is commonly known in America – a “lowlife” after she released a recording of her firing by chief of staff John Kelly, seemingly recorded in the White House Situation Room.

And after she released a recording of a conversation she had with Trump after her firing, he repeated called her “wacky.”

But on Tuesday, he ratcheted up the war of words — to a level of nastiness rarely seen, even from a president who has shown he does not pull punches when insulting his critics.

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!” Trump tweeted.

His comment immediately prompted criticism on both sides of the political aisle.
