White House Can't 'Guarantee' Trump Has Never Used N-Word

 During a White House press briefing today, Donald Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters she can’t "guarantee” Trump has never used the N-word when asked about former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman's allegations about Trump using the racial slur.

Recording Appears To Show Aides Sought To "Spin" Trump's Alleged N-Word Recording

I'm not sure what's more damning - that there seems to be more evidence that a tape exists with Donald Trump using the N-word, or that his supplicants publicly denied a conversation took place (that you can now hear with your own ears) where they discuss how to 'spin' the incident.

Listen below.

Trump Allegedly Called Junior A "F*ck-Up" For Revealing Trump Tower Russian Meeting

According to the New York Daily News, Donald Trump was uber-angry at his junior namesake for releasing emails about his Trump Tower meeting with a Russian government attorney.

President Trump blasted his firstborn son as a “f–kup” after learning he had released emails about a controversial Trump Tower meeting attended by a Kremlin-connected lawyer who had promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, according to Omarosa Manigault Newman’s forthcoming book.

Manigault Newman, who was unceremoniously fired from the White House last December, says the President erupted in anger after she met with him last July and told him she was “sorry to hear” Donald Trump Jr. had posted screengrabs on Twitter of his email exchanges with British publicist Rob Goldstone.

“He is such a f–kup,” Trump said of his son, according to Manigault Newman’s tell-all book, a copy of which was obtained by the Daily News. “He screwed up again, but this time, he’s screwing us all, big-time!” A White House spokeswoman did not immediately return a request for comment. A spokesman for Trump Jr. did not immediately respond either.

Trump Rants At "Nasty," "Mean" & "Vicious" Omarosa

Just hours after former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman appeared on television playing recorded conversations with the president, Donald Trump lashed out at the woman who he has repeatedly hired over and over since the beginning on his reality TV show, The Apprentice.

Referring to Omarosa as "nasty" and "mean" (then why did he hire her so often?), Trump tweeted that she was "hated" in the White House for being "vicious."

Trump Trolls Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Kasich Claps Back

Ohio Gov. John Kasich
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a former presidential opponent of Donald Trump, recently made some television appearances underscoring the very, very narrow win by Republican Troy Balderson in Ohio's 12th Congressional District, whom Donald Trump endorsed.

Pointing to Balderson’s less-than-1-percent advantage over Democrat Danny O’Connor, Kasich made the case that the slim margin was due to Trump’s constant “chaos” which has become a turn-off for moderate suburban women in last Tuesday’s special election.

Trump slapped back at Kasich on Twitter, and Kasich didn't pause to throw some shade of his own with a laughing Putin gif.


Omarosa Releases Recorded Telephone Call With Trump

But wait, there's more!

After yesterday's reveal of a conversation where White House Chief of Staff appears to be firing former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman in the Situation Room of the White House, today she shared a telephone conversation with the president himself.

Allegedly recorded the day after she was fired, in the conversation Trump appears to have no knowledge his former reality show star had been fired.

From NBC News:

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” contestant who became a White House aide, has provided an audio recording that she says is from 2017 and on which President Donald Trump expresses surprise that she’d been fired from his administration. The tape, which was played exclusively Monday on “Today,” appears to show Trump having no idea that Newman had been dismissed by his Chief of Staff John Kelly.

“Omarosa? Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” Trump is heard saying on the tape, which Newman said was made one day after her termination in December 2017 when Trump called her. “You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it,” Trump is heard saying on the tape. “I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

Here's the full interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie. Well worth the watching. Omarosa is incredibly disrespectful and demeaning to Guthrie.

Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul, is reported to be "gravely ill" and surrounded by close family members.

From IHeartRadio:

Franklin, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2010, turned 76 in March. Her last performance was on November 2, 2017 for the Elton John AID Foundation in New York and her public performance occurred at the Philadelphia’s Mann Center last August.

Franklin has struggled with weight issues throughout her life and has battle alcoholism and was a chain smoker for a large part of it.

Rolling Stone once named Franklin the number 1 singer of all time. The American singer and songwriter began her career while still a child singing gospel music at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, where her father was a minister.

In 1960, Franklin was signed to Columbia Records where she only achieved modest success. It wasn't until she signed with Atlantic Records in 1967 that she acheived commercial success with songs like "Respect," "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," and "Think." By the end of the 1960s, she had become known as the "Queen of Soul."
