Lordy, there are tapes! Per this morning’s Mediaite

[Meet the Press host Chuck] Todd prefaced it by asking [Omarosa Manigault Newman] with some bewilderment how she was able to record the White House chief of staff in the Situation Room, as she claims.

She defended herself and said she felt threatened, telling Todd if she didn’t have the recording people would have continued to believe the false stories about her firing.

Kelly can be heard on the tape saying, “I think it’s important to understand that if we make this a friendly departure, we can all be––you know, you can look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation. And then you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation.”

Manigault called that remark an obvious “threat.”

Let’s roll the tape of the tape…

That was one helluva gangsta “exit interview.”

We too are wondering how Omarosa got a recording device into the Situation Room. That ALONR would be a major scandal, and it is not out of the realm of strong possibility that it occured there, but keep in mind that the only person claiming the firing took place there is Omarosa, and you can count on the White House Mighty Wurlitzer of Mostly Lies and 100% Spin, plsyed by the virtuoso Sarah Huckabee Sanders, to issue an immediate questionable refutation.

Isn’t it amazing that we have a White House full of people whose word cannot be trusted and a media ecosystem filled with ex-Trumpies putting their own slant on the catastrophe? Welcome to post-truth America…
