Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former Apprentice contestant and White House staffer, sent the President of the United States an ominous message on Friday morning, telling him to “come clean” before the release of her tell-all book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.

Omarosa, once a close confidant of the President, was a prominent member of his election campaign and accompanied him to Washington, observing all the wild chaos of the transition period, the beginning of the Mueller investigation, and the President’s adjustment to power.
Her well-established fondness for recording things that are said and done around her have already prompted a great deal of tongue-wagging at the prospect of what embarrassing evidence she might have gathered on the President.
Omarosa has previously spoken out on her efforts to restrain and calm down the president, telling the other contestants on Celebrity Big Brother that she “tried” to be that person but “all the people around him attacked me. It was like, ‘keep her away from him, don’t get her access, don’t let her talk to him…And Ivanka’s there, Jared’s there…It’s not my circus, not my monkeys, I’d like to say not my problem but I can’t say that because it’s bad.”
While this may just be a marketing gimmick to drum up hype about her upcoming book, there also is the potential for truly explosive revelations that could induce an enormous headache for the President.
