Omarosa. Where do we begin with her?! She was a ‘villain’ on The Apprentice. She was vilified when she returned to TV. She claimed to be a victim when Michael Clark Duncan died. And when she stumped for Trump and subsequently got a job in the White House? Wellll…….
Like her or hate her, you have to admit that she has a presence and is a savvy woman. I wonder if people don’t like her because she is aggressive and a woman as opposed to just someone who is aggressive.
Either way, you had to know she was always going to write a book about her experience. (This whole NDA issue seems ridiculous to me, but then again, in the #Trump administration everything has gone past the point of absurd.) I think she took the job with the endgame of a book deal.
Even though it is Omarosa, I don’t doubt much of what she is saying. Unlike Michael Wolff, she seems to have the receipts about just how #unhinged Trump really is.
Chewing documents? Using the N-word? Calling her a dog? Is there any abhorrent or weird behaviour this guy has not engaged in? Sigh.
Will you read her book? I’m going to.
And now I have to disclose that I have had my own run-ins with DJT.
The summer after my first year of college I was working as a legal secretary at a small firm in Florida. A client of the firm had named his company with the word ‘Trump’ in it and the client subsequently disappeared. (Long story, not related to Trump…..I think, lol.)
Anyway, because of this guy’s disappearance, Trump’s attorneys wrote a ‘cease & desist’ letter to have the company change its name. The wife of the owner of the company was happy to oblige since she wanted to dissolve the company and have her husband declared deceased. The two main attorneys of the firm just happened to be on holiday when this letter came in and I was left to draft the answer by myself and read it to my boss who was many time zones away for approval. I was…..18 years old!
That was ‘run-in’ #1.
I was living in Boston and working in New York. I was out to dinner with a buddy who worked for someone very well-known and was a good friend of Trump’s at the time. At the table of this very popular restaurant was me, my friend, his famous boss, and four other people. We were thoroughly enjoying our meal when from the other side of the room I see someone coming towards us who looks familiar. I turn to my friend and say, ‘That guy looks like Donald Trump!’ My friend looks at me like I am the world’s biggest moron and says, ‘That IS Donald Trump.’
Trump approaches the table and right behind him was Melania. He greets my friend’s boss and they talk for a few minutes. He then chats with other people at the table. He sees me whispering to my friend. He looks at me and then to my friend and says to my buddy, ‘You can do better.’ He then turns back to the leader of our table and says something else before walking away.
It didn’t immediately register with me exactly what had happened until Trump was well gone. I then turned to my friend in disbelief. He quickly shrugged it off and said it was typical of Trump and that was that. By the way, Melania never said a word.
The next afternoon I was back at my desk at my job in Boston and recounting the story to a friend via email. He shot back, ‘Wait, Trump is in Scotland.’ Sure enough, Trump had left the restaurant immediately after talking to us, hopped on his plane and flown to Scotland to open a golf course.
Ladies and gentlemen, I tell you these stories to show you that even with minimal contact with someone I NEVER thought would be President that you should believe someone like Omarosa. She had a lot of contact with someone I never respected and now he is dismantling our democracy for his own pleasure and gain.
We’ve come to the point where it is reality star vs. reality star and it’s becoming harder to decipher what the real reality is……
