Misleading Washington Post Headline: 'Omarosa Will Take Down President Trump'

July 26th, 2018 6:29 PM

Take a certain misleading July 26 Washington Post headline as a sign that liberals have become increasingly frustrated that Donald Trump has still not been removed from the Oval Office and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has yet to present evidence that Trump committed collusion with Russia.

This frustration has caused liberal desperation to such an extent that they are willing to grasp at any straw. The latest manifestation of this was the headline on an article by Helena Andrews-Dyer: "Omarosa will take down President Trump in an ‘explosive, jaw-dropping’ new tell-all book."

Only one big problem with that headline: there is absolutely no indication in the article itself that Omarosa's upcoming book will do any such thing. Some unknown headline writer (assuming it wasn't Andrews-Dyer) must have been so desperate for a Trump exit that he (or she) made a wishful thinking leap of faith that Omarosa Manigault Newman's book would make it so. Even the attached Celebrity Big Brother video in which Omarosa whispers melodramatically to Ross the Intern about her White House experiences in no way justifies the headline:

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who left the White House last year after a fraught tenure, isn’t done spilling all the tea served at 1600 Penn.

Gallery Books announced Thursday that Omarosa is releasing a “stunning tell-all” titled “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.” The book, billed as an “explosive, jaw-dropping account,” hits shelves Aug. 14.

So it's going to take down President Trump? Huh? Huh? Huh? Please tell me it's so:

Omarosa’s loyalty to the Trump brand was fierce until her drama-filled White House departure in December. She spent nearly 15 years in Trump’s inner circle, making a name for herself as one of the original bad girls of reality TV on “The Apprentice” and later as a staffer with unfettered access to the president despite a nebulous job description.

Since her exit from the Trump orbit, Omarosa has dropped plenty of hints that a tell-all was in the works. Days after her firing (or resignation — the details are still hazy), she told “Good Morning America” that she had “quite a story to tell.

Hmm... The details also seem hazy on how she is going to TAKE DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP. In fact those details seem to be non-existent in this article:

During an appearance on “Celebrity Big Brother,” Omarosa said she was “haunted” by the president’s erratic tweets and would not vote for him again “in a million years.” According to a Gallery Books news release, Omarosa and the president are done: “That relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end.”

Yeah, great but isn't she supposed to TAKE DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP as the headline stated?

There’s no word on how much Omarosa pocketed for “Unhinged,” but one individual close to the reality star said she received a deal in the low seven figures. Gallery Books is an imprint of Simon & Schuster, which is owned by CBS, the network that airs the Big Brother franchise.

So she is going to be paid at least a million bucks for a book that this article provides no evidence would justify it's Fake News headline.
