'Redemption' for Omarosa not likely, say critics

Omarosa Newman and Pres. TrumpA conservative black radio host doesn't believe that by turning against President Donald Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman is endearing herself to the mainstream black community.

According to The Associated Press, Manigault Newman (pictured) stood at Donald Trump's side for years – which made her deeply unpopular with blacks who see her as "a sellout" for aligning herself with the president. But her falling out with Trump and her attacks against the president in her new book don't appear to have been enough for many liberal blacks to invite her back into the fold.

Stacy Washington is a member of the National Advisory Council of Project 21 (Black Leadership Network) and host of a weekday talk-show on American Family Radio and Urban Family Talk.

"We've now found out she spent the entire time she was on the [Trump] campaign and in the White House recording everyone, really being untrustworthy and unprofessional and breeching the confidence of so many people who really trusted her," she states. "So it's not a surprise to me that polling doesn't show [her] trending in the black community."

And Washington wonders what additional problems Manigault Newman will face for making recordings in the White House Situation Room, which is a designated Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (known as a "SCIF").

"It's a total security violation," she exclaims. "If regular person [like me] had taken a recording device into a SCIF, I'd be having some kind of really uncomfortable interview with some law enforcement types right now. I don't think she's going to be able to escape some additional scrutiny because she did that.

"... It really calls for some assessment of the protocols that are in place right now on how people get in and out of areas with their cell phones and etcetera."

AP quotes conservative blacks who say Manigault Newman is no longer trustworthy, one of them stating there's "absolutely no way she can redeem herself" and that "recording someone under these circumstances is the political equivalent of spitting on a man."
