*White House Correspondent April Ryan has issued a warning to former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman: “Keep my name out of your mouth” and advised her to “lawyer up” after she leaked audio of conversations that allegedly took place inside the White House.
In an appearance on CNN this week, Ryan said:
“I’ve known Omarosa for years and we are not friends anymore. This White House created this monster, and it was even before this White House… I would say Donald Trump created this own monster in his own likeness, and this monster has come back to bite him.”
Ryan accused Omarosa of telling lies to hurt her career as a White House beat reporter. She also believes Omarosa used Trump and then turned on him.
“She’s not a friend. She’s a liar, and I would say she’s evil.”
But days after issuing the warning, Ryan came to Omarosa’s defense after Trump called her “a dog.”
“Let me be clear! Calling a Black woman a dog is unacceptable,” Ryan tweeted on Tuesday. “This is a pattern. We saw it with the Black football players moms. They were called sons of B*tches.”

Omarosa’s book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” is in bookstores and online now.
In related news, on Tuesday (Aug, 14), White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to dispel the chatter around Trump’s racism by lying about African-American job numbers.
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.”
Adding, “I can tell you the president addressed this question directly. I can tell you I have never heard it. I can tell you if myself or the people in this building serving this country every single day doing our very best to help people all across this country and make it better, if at any point we felt that the president was who some of his critics claim him to be, we certainly wouldn’t be here.”

Sanders noted: “It wasn’t until he became a candidate for President that you started to hear some of the salacious and ridiculous claims.”
But just so we’re clear… The Justice Department sued Donald Trump for discriminating against black people…… in 1973.
Sanders issued a rare correction Tuesday night after falsely declaring that Trump has created three times as many jobs for black folks as former President Barack Obama did during his two terms in office.
“Correction from today’s briefing: Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn’t. I’m sorry for the mistake, but no apologies for the 700,000 jobs for African Americans created under President Trump,” Sanders wrote in a tweet.
