Former White House Director of Communications, Omarosa Manigault, who has a penned a tell-all book detailing her time in the White House, appeared on NBC’s Today show claiming the two-house Situation Room meeting in which she was fired amounts to “false imprisonment.”


Omarosa, who is busy promoting her tell-all book Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House set to be released next week, revealed in her Today show interview she believes Trump was lying when he claimed in a phone call last December he knew nothing of Omarosa’s firing by Chief of Staff John F. Kelly.


“There is a complete organization between the two of them,” Omarosa said of President Trump and John F. Kelly. “He probably instructed General Kelly to do it so that he could keep his hands clean when he spoke to me. I’m wondering, is he sincere?”

“Is General Kelly running this country, or is the president running this country?” Omarosa remarked on the Today show.

The former Apprentice contestant’s appearance on Today comes just days after she released a recording of what she told NBC’s Meet the Press was a conversation she taped in the Situation Room of General Kelly firing her. When asked during her Today appearance how she made the tape, Omarosa responded, “I’ll just leave that to your imagination.”


President Trump on Monday morning fired back at Omarosa’s revelations in a series of tweets, writing, “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious but not smart.”

The President also maintained Omarosa was “nasty to people and would constantly miss meetings & work” but added, despite General Kelly’s report she was “a loser & nothing but problems” he requested Kelly try working it out because “she only said GREAT things about me – until she was fired.”

The President ended his series of Omarosa tweets by acknowledging, “I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!”
