Omarosa May Have Secretly Recorded Conversations in the White House. If True, This Would Be Peak Omarosa

If the rumors that former White House worker (or President Donald Trump’s personal Diet Coke getter) Omarosa Manigault Newman secretly recorded private conversations she had during her short White House stay, then I hate to say this—it actually pains me to say this—but Omarosa might be our only hope to bring down the White House.

And wouldn’t that be a hell of a comeback story? The soulless black woman who gave up her entire life for all eternity to suck up to one of the most vile and racist orange men this planet has ever seen, only to turn on her master in the 11th hour and save the world from evil ... only to find herself still outside the collective cookout with no way in.


At this point, Omarosa would have to bring down a presidency, ensure reparations, cure all forms of cancer and bring down the price of the Porsche Panamera in order for black folks to even begin to re-evaluate her body of work.

Omarosa’s been gone, so the news of her self-serving tapes is only exciting if the aftermath of her book deal or five-part television series that I’m sure she’s negotiating is that she may bring the White House to its knees.

“Everyone knows Omarosa loves to record people and meetings using the Voice Notes app on her iPhone,” a source told the New York Daily News. “Don’t be surprised if she has secret audio files on everyone in that White House, past and present staffers included.”

Omarosa was reportedly tossed out of the White House like the Fresh Prince shortly after White House chief of staff John Kelly arrived and asked, “Whose womans is this?” Her last official day with the White House, however, is Saturday, and the Daily News is reporting that the former lone black woman in the White House has already met with top lawyers Lisa Bloom and Monique Pressley. I don’t know what Bloom, the lawyer for all things Hollywood, knows about the Russia investigation, but The Hill notes that Newman may be concerned that she’ll be asked to testify in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of the Kremlin’s involvement in Trump’s affairs.


It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, but one thing we all know about Omarosa is that she will do anything to take care of Omarosa—even if that means biting the little fingers that fed her.
