"If you could see one day of Donald Trump on that set, one full day, you'll realize that's what's going on in the White House", Arnold said. On the front lines is Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has the unenviable job of trying to make an irrational, racist White House look rational and inclusive. Lara Trump: "-keep everything, everybody positive, right?"

Or because of Manigault Newman's claims that Melania Trump "is counting every minute until [Trump] is out of office and she can divorce him"?

Omarosa released her latest effort on Thursday, playing an edited tape recording of her conversation with Trump campaign official Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump, dangling a possible $15,000-per-month job.

In an interview with Meet the Press last Sunday, she released one of her getting fired by John Kelly.

Excerpts of a secret phone recording between Manigault Newman and President Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump aired on MSNBC on Thursday.

CDC monitoring measles outbreak in 21 states, including Oregon

Maher reminded his audience how "Apprentice" alum Manigault Newman had previously defended Trump "a million times" and also lied for the president, but joked, "she's our asshole now".

But visual evidence would provide yet more proof that Manigault Newman, who built a reputation for reality-show exaggeration and deception, is actually a credible (or at least semi-credible) source. "My clients will not be intimidated by hollow legal threats", she wrote. In one segment, she says she witnessed Trump tell his son to have extramarital affairs, while boasting of his own dalliances.

In recent days, she has begun leaking audio of her time there, including of Kelly firing her in the Situation Room - a sensitive, compartmented information facility which is supposed to be secure from recording equipment - and Trump expressing surprise that he had done so. The White House issued a statement calling Omarosa a "disgruntled former White House staffer" whose book is "riddled with lies and false accusations".

The president went on to call Manigault Newman a "crazed, crying lowlife" and "that dog". But she made it clear that is just her "personal opinion", not a fact.

Due to her history, many commentators have pointed out that it's hard to verify Omarosa's claims as truth.
