The Washington Post is reporting that former White House Aide Omarosa Manigault Newman was offered hush money after her departure from her job last year. Listen, I’m all for a salacious story about the president, but its hard to believe coming from Omarosa. However, the Washington Post was able to verify some of her claims via taped recordings. Despite my reluctance to believe her, there may be something to this story.
Here are the deets straight from her book. Omarosa got the ax by Chief of Staff John Kelly last December. After she was fired, she claims she was offered a $15,000 a month contract to keep silent. Since Donny is a fan of the NDAs, I’m inclined to believe there may be truth to the story.
Omarosa says that Lara Trump contacted her shortly after her dismissal. In the phone call, Lara offered her a job on the re-election campaign for $15,000 a month. A clause in the contract included silence from Omarosa on her time working for the White House.
Now here is where things get interesting. The Post got there hands on a copy of the NDA provided to Omarosa. Details of the NDA include not being able to talk about the President, Vice President or their families. The contract dictated she could not say anything to damage Donny Boy. Her job title listed within the contract was “Diversity Outreach.”
After reviewing the document, Omarosa refused to take the position and sign the NDA.
I’m inclined to believe that Donny tried to buy her silence. Omarosa served as his aide for almost a year. She had access to the president many in the staff don’t experience. Staff members have stated she had a close relationship with Donny. Omarosa seemed to spend a lot of time in the Oval Office.
Omarosa claims in her book that Donny is a racist, bigot, and misogynist. I hate to break it to big O, but those details aren’t that earth-shattering. Donny likes to pick fights with African American Athletes on Twitter. He’s paid off numerous women for affairs. Additionally, can we forget his Access Hollywood Tape with Billy Bush? I mean this is the guy that said he could grab women by the “pussies.”
