GOP political consultant Frank Luntz tweeted that a claim in Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman’s new tell-all “Unhinged; An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House” is “flat out false.”

Manigault-Newman’s memoir is about her tenure in President Donald Trump‘s White House.
“I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word.

“The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from …read more
