Omarosa's book marks stunning turn-around for a former top aide

Manigault Newman landed in Washington D.C. on Saturday to kick off a publicity tour for her soon to be released book, "Unhinged", that is chock-full of explosive - though unverified - details about life in the White House.

Her dramatic divorce from a man she likens to a cult leader is the subject of a salacious, self-serving, mostly unverifiable account of her West Wing tenure, "Unhinged: An Insiders Account of the Trump White House" (Gallery Books, 330 pages).

When Haberman asked Trump if he felt betrayed by Omarosa, the president laughed, cupped his hand around his mouth, and said, "Lowlife".

Reports of the bombshell allegations in the book against Trump caught fire this week, including her calling him a "racist", "misogynist", and a "bigot" alongside accounts of him using a racial slur on the set of The Apprentice, and eating a piece of paper in the Oval Office. He responded: "Lowlife. She's a lowlife".

Manigault Newman served as the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison and claims chief of staff John Kelly fired her because she was close to getting audio of Trump using the racial slur.

President Trump took a swipe at onetime aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as he mingled with motorcycle-riding supporters during a rainy afternoon at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. She says when she turned down the offer, she received letters from Trump's lawyers telling her to stay quiet. "The Art of the Deal is a bestseller!"

"Current and former Trump staffers don't know what conversations Manigault Newman recorded", he writes. The White House has already slammed it as "riddled with lies and false accusations". She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents.

The president tweeted about the event, saying "hundreds of bikers for Trump just joined me in Bedminster" and called them great people who love our country.
