With former White House aide Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman threatening to release tapes of President Donald Trump using the “N-word,” Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, had something to say about it. You’re going to love this!
Omarosa has caused an uproar with a new tell-all book about her experiences in the White House. Fired by Donald Trump once again and grasping at straws now that she was out of a job, Omarosa decided to do what others have done after being booted from Trump’s White House — write a “tell-all” book about the president and his family, complete with rumors and slanderous claims.
Among the most audacious of Omarosa’s unfounded allegations are that First Lady Melania Trump is counting down the days until her husband is out of office so she can divorce him and that President Trump said the “N-word.” Both of these ridiculous claims have been disputed by those close to the president, but the media is still allowing Omarosa to go on TV and push her version of the truth.
Enter Dr. Alveda C. King, who grew up during the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries, and she has sat on several White House councils to advise the president on spiritual matters and issues affecting the black community.
Dr. King has spent time with Omarosa on many different occasions, as the two happened to run into each other at the White House quite frequently during the former staffer’s time there. Now, King is perplexed as to why Omarosa has suddenly made such slanderous accusations against the president, when, not so long ago, she was one of his most ardent supporters.
“I’ve been praying hard about the Omarosa situation,” Dr. King revealed in an article for Newsmax. “I and a colleague had an opportunity to sit down with her at the White House a few months ago. I also had a few moments to chat with her on the president’s tour of the African American Museum, and had a photo with her in the Rose Garden at the signing of the religious freedom executive order.”
“At no time, on any of these occasions, did Omarosa express any of the concerns we are hearing about now. To the contrary, it’s such a shame that we live in a society where someone would be comfortable writing things like what she is doing for money,” she added. “It is sad and so troubling that many have shunned Omarosa for having a long-term business relationship as well as a friendship with POTUS to such an extent that she is now so desperate that she’s willing to tell lies for money and to seek the good graces of whoever is willing to buy into these allegations.”
If President Donald Trump is, in fact, a racist who used the “N-word” as Omarosa claims, then why on earth would she go to work for his presidential campaign and take a high-profile gig working for him in the White House? Why, if Trump is such a racist, evil person would she so loudly sing his praises over and over again on television and at crowded events? It makes no sense at all unless it’s just a big fat lie that Omarosa is using to garner attention and money, as Dr. King suggested.
Has Omarosa no integrity? Or is this whole “N-word” scandal simply a publicity stunt concocted by a woman who has literally made a career out of drawing attention to herself? At this point, it seems quite likely that both are true. If Trump was a racist monster, Omarosa should have distanced herself from him immediately. But, he’s not. So, she didn’t.
Moreover, Trump still has many prominent black leaders in his corner; leaders like Alveda King, who has more integrity in her little finger than Omarosa has in her entire being.
