Former White House aide Omarosa Manigualt Newman is really going to make Donald Trump regret kicking her out of the White House. Not only has she spoken out about Trump several times after her firing while on the reality television show Celebrity Big Brother, but she’s continuing her tell-all crusade in her new book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
In her book, Omarosa not only talked about how chaotic the nature of Trump’s White House was, but she also dropped several bombshells about the president’s mental state, claiming that she noticed something was wrong.
According to an excerpt in Omarosa’s book, she noticed something was up with The Donald when she saw footage of his interview with NBC’s Lester Holt. Having known Trump for quite a while due to being on his former reality show The Apprentice, Omarosa suspected something was “off.” She wrote:
While watching the interview I realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald’s brain. His mental decline could not be denied.
Many didn’t notice it as keenly as I did because I knew him way back when. They thought Trump was being Trump, off the cuff.
But I knew something wasn’t right.”
This is the interview Omarosa is referencing, in which Trump made several inflammatory remarks about his firing of former FBI Director James Comey and also contradicted a statement from his own White House:
Pres. Trump on firing Comey: “I said, you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story.” https://t.co/hxqM1LI6BE

Omarosa said that when she heard what Trump was saying, she was thinking “Oh no! Oh no! This is bad!”
Donald rambled. He spoke gibberish. He contradicted himself from one sentence to the next.”
Omarosa is not alone – much of America has noticed that Trump’s behavior is abnormal as well. Unfortunately, the GOP is ignoring the fact that the president needs help. With this testimony coming from someone who has known the president for quite a while, this is a warning they should heed.
