*Some might say Donald Trump is the greatest president of all time, others would agree that the man hasn’t a presidential bone in his body — while the debate rages on across social media and beyond, 45 lashed out at Omarosa Manigault-Newman early Tuesday morning, calling her a “dog” in an online Twitter rant after she slammed him for being a racist who has said the N-word on tape.
“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.
He didn’t refer to Omarosa as a “bitch”, but we all know a female dog is defined as a bitch.

Trump tweeted Monday night, “I don’t have that word in my vocabulary and never have. She made it up.”
But a new recording, obtained by CBS News, seems to back up Omarosa’s claim that several Trump advisers discussed an alleged tape during the 2016 campaign, msn.com reported.
According to the news outlet:
In her new book, “Unhinged,” Omarosa, who was fired from her position as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison in December 2017, describes an October 2016 phone conversation with Lynne Patton, then-assistant to Eric Trump, spokesperson Katrina Pierson and campaign communications director Jason Miller in which they discuss how to deal with the potential fallout from its release.
Omarosa on Trump tapes: “If you see it in quotes it can be verified”
“I am trying to find at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it,” Pierson is heard saying.
Patton then described a conversation she had with then-candidate Trump about making the slur.
Patton: “I said, ‘Well, sir, can you think of anytime where this happened?’ And he said, ‘no.'”
Omarosa: “Well, that is not true.”
Patton: “He goes, how do you think I should handle it and I told him exactly what you just said, Omarosa, which is well, it depends on what scenario you are talking about. And he said, well, why don’t you just go ahead and put it to bed.”
Pierson: “He said. No, he said it. He is embarrassed by it.”
Appearing on Fox News Monday night before the release of the audio, Pierson denied the call ever took place saying, Omarosa “sounds like she is writing a script for a movie.”
Meanwhile, Manigault-Newman believes Trump’s relationship with his daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka, is often quite inappropriate.
“As long as I’d known Trump, I’d observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy,” Manigault Newman writes in her book. “In my opinion, based on my observations, their relationship goes right up to the line of appropriate father/daughter behavior and jumps right over it. I believe he covets his daughter. It’s uncomfortable to watch them.”
As reported by PEOPLE, Omarosa adds that in Trump’s Apprentice days, “It appeared to me that Ivanka had gotten so used to his touching her in ways that made others cringe and either didn’t notice it anymore or purposefully allowed it to happen.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement saying that “Unhinged” “is riddled with lies and false accusations,” adding that “it’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration.”
But when a reporter asked her a recent WH press conference: “Can you guarantee the American people they will never hear Donald Trump utter the N-word on a recording in any context?”
Sanders replied, “Uhhh, I can’t guarantee uhhh anything.”
BREAKING: Sarah Sanders just refused to guarantee that the American people will never hear President Trump uttering the n-word on recording.
In other words, she knows it happened and knows it will eventually see the light of day!
JUST IN: White House Press Sec. Sanders says she can’t guarantee that a recording of the president using “the N-word” will never be heard by the American people.
