    I guess we're supposed to think it was good of Trump to give "a crazed, crying lowlife" a job at the White House. The kind of thing that helps us all sleep better at night.

    Well she said nice things about him. He couldn't be expected not to hire somebody who said nice things about him to a major administration job. He is only human.

    Not sure it’s fair to single out the black people he labels as not smart. That seems to be his go-to insult for anyone who crosses him (Comey was also “not smart” if you’ll recall). It’s already extremely unstatesmanlike for him to wrestle in mud with his detractors. And, in my opinion, the truth of that needs to be enough without casting it in a racist light.

    Quite agree. Let’s hear those tapes and settle who’s lying.

    He is farcical. Just keeps exposing himself.

    I’m with you except for the last part. While Omarosa can “prove” she’s telling the truth by producing these infamous tapes, Trump can’t “prove” that no such tape exists. The burden of proof should be on her, first because she made the accusation and second because she has lied in the past (in my opinion) about people using racial slurs when it suited her purpose. If she can’t produce a tape with Trump dropping an n-bomb, then the most likely scenario is that she’s lying again.

    WRT any tapes she claims she has, sure she should prove her case. I'll agree to that.

    I guess I was speaking to any other he said / she said stuff. I don't trust her, but I trust him as little as any person can be trusted.

    I wouldn't believe either of them, but if a gun was put to my head, I'd go in her favor, based on his track record.

    We don't know if she lies or how often. We know he does it continually.

    There is a potential crime there if she has tapes recorded in the situation room. I doubt she would release them if she does have any tapes.

    So far she has been able to produce tapes. I wouldn't be surprised if tapes with Trump using the "n word" don't show up sooner or later, not unlike the Billy Bush tape in which Trump referred to grabbing female anatomy using a term also synonymous with domestic felines.

    Does it really matter whether he's been caught dropping the N word?

    His rhetoric and actions over the past couple of years speak for themselves. He doesn't need to drop the N word to tell you what's he's about.

    She's definitely a liar and a schemer. She was hanging with the right mentor there.

    Agree that the big difference, no matter what she does, is that he's doing it constantly.

    Who is the bigger fool? The liar and schemer or the person who hires her? Omarosa was unfit and unqualified to hold a job at the White House except that she knew Trump and played on his narcissism by praising him. Trump also needed a minority other than Ben Carson in his administration, so Trump gave Omarosa a job she didn't deserve. And in the end, what we got should be no surprise to anyone, except another kind of fool who still may think Trump surrounds himself with all the best people.

    Didn't she also release a tape of a phone call with Trump wherein he said he'd "heard she was leaving" but didn't know she had been fired (altho not a Situation Room tape)?

    If you're in the White House, I think she's already released enough to really make them all wonder what else she has.

    No, it doesn't. Trump supporters have seen far worse and haven't cared. Trump opponents simply won't be surprised.

    Penn Jillette Says Trump 'Apprentice' Tapes Exist: "I Was in the Room"

    Penn Jillette says he knows for a fact that Mark Burnett possesses tapes of President Donald Trump saying disparaging, racist remarks while working on the NBC reality show Celebrity Apprentice.

    "Nothing I can say here hurts my career. But for the world the stakes are higher," he told Vulture. "And what I’m trying to do here is tell you the story emotionally without telling you specifics. I would not feel comfortable talking about what I felt I saw in that room — because when I was on that show I was sleeping four to five hours a night. I was uncomfortable. 'Stress' is the wrong word, but I was not at my best."

    Still, he did say that Trump, during Celebrity Apprentice production, "would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable." Jillette added that Trump would also make sexual remarks about women that made him uneasy.

    Yup. Even if a tape is released of him dropping N bombs I doubt he’d lose many supporters.

    Racially insensitive and the N word are two different things. I seriously doubt he’s on tape uttering it. It would kill him even with his base. I haven’t lost that much faith in people.
