BOMBSHELL: Omarosa’s ‘Source’ Contradicts Her With Major Statement, Says NO Trump ‘N-Word’ Tape

Omarosa Manigault claimed in her new book and in a recent interview that she heard a tape of President Donald Trump using the “n word” years ago while shooting the Celebrity Apprentice. But the “source” of her claim has just released a major statement, and he made it clear that the tape does not exist, “period.”

During an interview Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Manigault was promoting her new book about the inner working of the White House.

The former White House aide spoke about a major claim in her book, which alleges that a “source” supposedly had a recording of Trump using the “n-word” in a derogatory manner when he was hosting The Apprentice many years ago.

Manigault told host Chris Matthews that former Apprentice producer Bill Pruitt had uncovered the alleged tape. She also said she heard Trump saying the racial slur “multiple times.”

Watch below:

Almost immediately after Manigault’s appearance on Hardball, senior Trump official Lynne Patton fired off a series of tweets saying she spoke with Pruitt and that he had provided her with a statement swiftly refuting Manigault’s salacious claim.

Here’s what Patton wrote on Monday following Manigault’s claim, which includes Pruitt’s claim:

“Tonight, on the MSNBC program, Hardball, Omarosa revealed to the public what she had told me last December: that former Apprentice producer, Bill Pruitt, was the original source of the ‘N-word’ tape. Bill Pruitt is a mutual friend. I just spoke to Bill Pruitt tonight before releasing this statement.”

He confirmed to me (before Hardball had even gone off the air) that he does NOT have an audio tape of President Trump using the ‘N-word’ and has NEVER had an audio tape of President Trump using the ‘N-word.’ Period.”

“Based upon her conflicting accounts and the newfound information revealed in my statement, it should be abundantly clear to everyone that not only is her book a complete work of fiction, but that the existence of this elusive ‘N-word’ tape is a figment of her imagination and merely a destructive tool of manipulation applied only when it best serves her interests.”

Patton receiving and sending out a statement from Pruitt refuting the claim sent shock waves across social media. Manigault’s book makes a bevy of salacious claims, many of which have already been swiftly condemned and called outright lies.

Here are just a few examples of notable figures who are mentioned in her book, and have denied the quotes or actions attributed to them by Manigault:

It’s important to note that many of the bombshell claims in Manigault’s book — especially the claim that there’s a tape of Trump using the “n-word” — have already been refuted and called false.

She is also under heavy fire and legal trouble for releasing two secret tape recordings that she took in the White House. One of White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room — which many argue is illegal — and the other of President Donald Trump calling her after she was fired.

On Tuesday, the Trump campaign filed arbitration against her in New York for allegedly breaking a nondisclosure agreement she signed in 2016.

Her book tour has become a train wreck, but the media will continue giving her free airtime because she will apparently say anything to smear the president.
