I know this isn’t a big deal to many normal Americans, but the media and the left are obsessed with there being a tape of Trump using the N-word.
Even liberal radio host Bill Press had a Daily Beast reporter on his show to talk about it. Except that this reporter, Asawin Suebsaeng, says he seriously looked into this in 2016 with people NBC’s Apprentice and couldn’t find anybody that knew anything about this:
Not only could he find no evidence for it in 2016 or since, he also says Yashar Ali from Huffpo spoke to the person who Omarosa claims played her the tape of Trump saying this…and that person was like whaaaaa?
Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman told at least three longtime Donald Trump aides that a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” Troy McClain, played a tape for her in the White House that included the president saying a racial slur while he was wearing a microphone during a taping of the reality show, sources have told HuffPost.
McClain, reached by phone, confirmed that he met with Manigault Newman in the White House in December 2017, while she was director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, but when McClain was asked if he played a recording for her of the president using a racial slur, he laughed and said, “You’ve got to be bullshitting me. Is this a joke?”
McClain denied that he ever played such a recording and said that Manigault Newman would never say he did. But multiple sources familiar with her communication about the meeting with McClain confirm that she said he played the audio file for her or that he discussed that he had heard the audio with her.
So there you go. Nobody knows what in the hell Omarosa is talking about with this and, according to the audio we listened to this morning, Trump doesn’t even remember it.
Can we call this settled already?
