Posted August 14, 2018 Share Posted August 14, 2018 https://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-audio-omarosa-trump-campaign-aides-apparently-discussing-fallout-of-n-word/ Quote In her new book, "Unhinged," Omarosa claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape. She describes an October 2016 phone conversation with Lynne Patton, then-assistant to Eric Trump, spokesperson Katrina Pierson and campaign communications director Jason Miller in which they discuss how to deal with the potential fallout from its release. "I am trying to find at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it," Pierson is heard saying. Patton then described a conversation she had with then-candidate Trump about making the slur. Patton: "I said, 'Well, sir, can you think of anytime where this happened?' And he said, 'no.'" Omarosa: "Well, that is not true." Patton: "He goes, how do you think I should handle it and I told him exactly what you just said, Omarosa, which is well, it depends on what scenario you are talking about. And he said, well, why don't you just go ahead and put it to bed." Pierson: "He said. No, he said it. He is embarrassed by it." Donald Trump claims Mark Burnett called him to say there's no Apprentice N-word tape Quote Why would he need assurance there's no tape if he didn't say the word? Assuring Trump there's no tape means he said the word, but there's no evidence. - @Bjomesphat Some of you have posted some of this in another thread, but it's been quite fascinating for me to follow as it's caused Trump to go even further off the rails and things Trump people are denying are being contradicted by actual tapes. "Lordy." - @Jason Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
