"The president of the United States is calling a woman of color a dog?".
"The president's an equal opportunity person who calls it like he sees it".
Mr Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric against Manigault Newman on Tuesday. Manigault-Newman believes this further supports her claim that not only is Trump clueless about what occurs at the White House, his most senior personnel are out of the loop too. "In Trump World, everyone lies". "I don't know who signed them".
She declined Tuesday to answer questions about her recordings, which she has described as a "treasure trove", and the extent to which colleagues are secretly recording each other at the White House, again citing the arbitration action.
In recent days, Manigault Newman has released audio of her firing by Kelly and of a call from Trump in which he says he did not know about her dismissal.
Her stash of recordings, which she is soon releasing in her new book "Unhinged", includes a condolence call she received from the couple the day after she was sacked by chief of staff John Kelly last December. Newman worked under Trump as an aide but was recently let go by his new Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly.
Trump regularly mocked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos behind her back as "ditzy", Manigault-Newman wrote. The hosts of those programs are likely liberals and so they take her stories about Mr. Trump's alleged "racism" and supposed use of the N-word (which she says she only heard second-hand) seriously.
But Manigault Newman insisted she pushed for diversity at the White House, which now has no African-American in a senior role following her departure.
Many condemned the president and his repeated attempts to compare minorities with animals, but there was little defense of Manigault Newman - unlike when Trump attacked National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James in recent weeks. The White House has not disputed the authenticity of recordings she's released so far.
The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, issued a public statement that the first lady will watch "any channel she wants" after the New York Times reported Trump was upset when his wife's channel was tuned to CNN on a trip to Europe.
But, lucky for Trump, despite his considerable efforts to keep Omarosa's name in the news, her book has not emerged as the best-seller that previous Trump admin inside accounts have been. "Every single time he said something, at first I thought, 'Is he doing this intentionally?'" she said.
