Frank Luntz: Omarosa’s Lying About Me Hearing ‘Trump Use the N-Word’

Latest news

    Frank Luntz described Omarosa Manigault’s allegation that he had heard President Donald Trump “use the n-word” as a “flat-out lie” via his Twitter profile on Friday.

    Manigault starred in NBC’s reality show The Apprentice while it was hosted by Trump. She subsequently joined the Trump administration as a communications aide.

    Manigault’s forthcoming book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White Housealleges that Trump repeatedly used the n-word during production of The Apprentice.

    In an interview with government-funded NPR, Manigault referred to an “N-word tape” — outtake video from The Apprentice — which she claims is evidence of Trump using the n-word. NPR noted a discrepancy between Manigault’s interview claims and those in her forthcoming book, highlighting a passage from the latter in which Manigault alleges to have heard from one of her “sources” about the “N-word tape”:

    Incredibly, this person – who shall remain nameless – picked up the phone.

    We spoke.

    On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said – yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant – and when he’d said them.

    During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track.

    For over a year I’d been so afraid of hearing the specifics from someone who’d been in the room. Hearing the truth freed me from that fear. And only now that it’s gone, do I realize just how heavy it’s been.

    NPR describes Manigault’s “search for the N-word tape” as “a core piece of the narrative [in her book].”
