Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer sat down with The Political Insider earlier today to discuss his new book “The Briefing.” Spicer’s tell-all book gives a glimpse inside the inner workings of the Trump White House during its early days, minus the kind of fiction you’d find in Omarosa Manigault’s book.
As James Miller points out in Spicer’s exclusive interview with The Political Insider, Omarosa’s name has become a mononymous, household name, like “Cher” or “Madonna.” Omarosa, a reality star from NBC’s “The Apprentice,” has decided to publish her own “tell-all” book, full of lies and distortions.
“She is someone who is, frankly, indebted to President Trump for what he has done for her career. He’s given her opportunity after opportunity to work at senior levels, to participate in this process. She’s praised him very publicly.”
Then, Spicer noted how funny it was that her first interview on “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd wished her well, without asking follow-up questions. Spicer also noted that he had first-hand knowledge of these networks never asking her for interviews, turning her down for interviews just months prior to the launch of her anti-Trump book announcement.
That means, even if someone is willing to break Federal laws and record Presidential advisors in highly secured areas of the White House, the media is willing to have Omarosa as a guest for political purposes.
That’s not reporting. That’s activism. And Omarosa is using that intense anti-Trump hatred among media elites to sell books and cash in.
Spicer said of Omarosa, “A few months ago, she leaves the White House, she does all these interviews [and] talks about what a great man he is, how proud she is to work for him, the amazing accomplishments. And then within what has to be weeks if not days, she’s meeting with publishers saying ‘hey, if you can get me some money, I’ll say anything you want.”
Spicer continued, “That shows to me a lack of trustworthiness, a lack of integrity, and then to see what she’s been doing in terms of some of this taping stuff, especially in classified settings, to me, is frankly just reprehensible.”
When asked about public harassment of Trump administration officials, Spicer said, “It has gotten to be more commonplace, and sadly, more acceptable…it’s getting us closer and closer to violence.”
Of the Russia investigation, Spicer explained that “I think that we’ve seen Russia and others try to meddle and undermine the integrity of our voting systems…There’s a vast difference between that and any sense of collusion, which in 18 plus months, we’ve seen nothing on. I think we need to be very careful in making sure we separate those two things.”
He said, of Mueller, “At some point, you’ve got to put your cards on the table, especially as we get close to the midterms.”
Spicer concluded by noting his book gives a behind the scenes account of what it was like behind the scenes during the first year of the Trump administration. Omarosa, on the other hand, was never in high-level meetings, and only has smears and outright falsehoods to share.
