President Donald Trump slurred former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman on Tuesday morning by calling her a “dog” on Twitter. And Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who has also been targeted by Trump, took him to the woodshed for it.
Omarosa’s tell-all book about Trump’s White House and her recordings of conversations got under Trump’s thin skin this week, resulting in a series of attacks that culminated in questioning her intelligence and calling her a “dog.”
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

Wilson, as you might recall, was targeted by Trump last year when she slammed him for insulting the family of a soldier killed in Niger.
According to The Los Angeles Times:
The fight between Trump and the Miami-area Democrat began Tuesday, when Wilson said Trump told the pregnant widow of a service member killed in Niger that her 25-year-old husband “knew what he signed up for.” Wilson was riding with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone.
Wilson later told reporters that Johnson’s family had taken Trump’s comments as an insult. Trump shot back that Wilson had “totally fabricated” the account, but the soldier’s widow and aunt confirmed it as true.
In his tweets, Trump repeatedly questioned Wilson’s mental state by calling her “wacky.”
The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!

Trump has a history of questioning the intelligence of African-Americans, most recently LeBron James and Don Lemon, in addition to Omarosa.
During an interview on CNN, Wilson hammered Trump for slurring his former staffer, who was also one of the very few black staffers in the White House.
“How dare he!” Wilson began. “He has taken this country to its knees. We already have racism raining down all over America. People can’t even enjoy themselves. They can’t even enjoy an evening out. Everyone is a target. We’re finding that college students, they’re calling the police because they went to sleep in the dorm. A little girl was selling water on the side of the street, and they called the police. And the president of the United States is calling a woman of color a dog? How dare he! How dare he call anyone a dog!”
“He has a nickname for everyone,” she continued, comparing Trump to a first grader. “We have to stop him. And the only way we can stop him and stop all of this foolishness and all of this hate and all of this racism that’s raining down on America is we’ve got to send a blue wave through this country. LeBron James said it correctly when he said racism has always existed, but President Trump has emboldened the racists to come forward without any fear of punitive actions. And we have got to stop this.”
“Mr. Trump is a white supremacist,” she concluded. “He surrounds himself with white supremacists and everything that comes out of this White House is racist.”

And now we can expect Trump to launch a racist attack on Wilson very soon.
