I'll stay silent for 14K.
 
2018-08-10 01:56:23 PM  
Donnie is gonna be pissed. I think we may actually need to pray for Omarosa.
 
2018-08-10 01:57:42 PM  
That may be one of the first smart things she's ever done.
 
2018-08-10 02:01:51 PM  
Thats a ton of money.... I'd have responded with a counter offer to stay quiet for the 15k/mo, but not do any work at all for them, and tie the silence to continued payments.
 
2018-08-10 02:04:50 PM  
The money is probably wired from Moscow anyway. Gross
 
2018-08-10 02:07:45 PM  
I momentarily wondered why someone offered both hush money and pens to keep her quiet.

I am not a clever man.
 
2018-08-10 02:09:47 PM  
Was this a news flash for her? Why did she keep following him around from job to job?

Eh, it's $180k per year and it's doubtful that the RNC would extend the agreement past 2020.  Even a mild hit on the book will pay her more than that.
 
2018-08-10 02:10:34 PM  
They want to pay out that kind of money, I'll not say another bad thing about him.

I think Trump offered hush money and penis.

She probably rejected the offer because the size of the money was also comically small.
 
2018-08-10 02:23:20 PM  
Coincidentally that's exactly how much the RNC pays Trump's former bodyguard...
 
2018-08-10 02:24:20 PM  
Every single person on the planet who has ever spoken out honestly about knowing, or interacting with trump in any way have all said the same thing about his incompetence, narcissism, and ability to tell the truth.

FAKE NEWS!!!!

She won't even get my thoughts, much less my prayers.  Or tots for that matter.  Pears she can have though.
 
2018-08-10 02:25:15 PM  
More like a Greed tag subby. She knows she's gonna get paid way more for the book.

Trump being a poor and cheap bastard once again tried to buy someone for too cheap.

She also knew he'd not pay her.
 
2018-08-10 02:25:37 PM

The Post has listened to several of the recordings made by Manigault Newman, which match quotations recounted in the book excerpts.

Maybe someone is giving  $15,001.00 a month in "blab" money. Cheapskates do get out-bidded sometimes.

2018-08-10 02:30:06 PM  
Wonder how long it takes Trump to develop cognative dissonance and tweet that "he never liked Omarosa and she's a complete loser"?

EL EM: Maybe someone is giving  $15,001.00 a month in "blab" money. Cheapskates do get out-bidded sometimes.


Probably 400,000-500,000 in advance for her book.

15k/mo seems a lot to us poors but it's just 180k a year.
If trump thinks he can buy silence for that little in this political climate he is truly very very stupid.

So he drops a bunch of n-bombs? Watch his Republican support soar.
 
2018-08-10 02:32:45 PM  
If you need to hear Trump say the n-word on tape to believe he's a racist, you really just have a sick infatuation with hearing the n-word.

imapirate: Let's hear the tapes, lady.


THIS!  Put up or shut up.  And speaking of tapes, every interview she does to plug this book, the host needs to play her "you will all bow down before Trump" rant.

/hell no, I not even touching her "book"

30min to 4 hours from now?  Depends when his next shiat is.  Considering he only eats McDonald's I'm sure it will be soon.
 
2018-08-10 02:33:45 PM  
Also, it'd would be something if Omarosa was the one who brought a president down.  I mean, it's already Stupid Watergate, maybe she's Stupid Deep Throat/Stupid Mark Felt.

Eh, I'd borrow it from the library for free.
 
2018-08-10 02:34:51 PM  
She probably wouldn't make the equivalent of 15K a month from the book. But once you add the paid interviews and exclusives... and the possibility of getting herself into another reality show (or news commentator, which is basically the same thing) by keeping her name on the news, they were low-balling her. Then there's spite. She was fired *and* although she does seem like a sellout, I bet some the racist stuff did get to her every now and then. So they needed to include some more money for pain and suffering for her to sell out again. Plus, she's probably not hurting for money right now. Michael Clarke Duncan left her most of his money (although the family was contesting that will) and she married some pastor running a scam on some rubes, so he's gotta be doing well for both of them.

I'd love for the tapes to be something along the lines of:

"Can you believe that I got these in-bred cousin farkers to give me a shiat ton of money just cause I talk about the n$ggers like they do?  I love making money off stupid people."
 
2018-08-10 02:35:54 PM  
$15,000 a month?

The other woman that spanked him with a magazine got ten times that in a lump sum!
 
2018-08-10 02:36:42 PM  
Hero, my ass subby. She's just as much a narcissistic, conniving, manipulative biatch as Trump.

This is one of those times where you ask for a Highlander-esque duel, but somehow they both chop each others' heads off. There can only be none.

She only went for coffee.

/although far nastier comments aren't out of "2Scoops" schtick.
 
2018-08-10 02:37:12 PM  
Remember when Omarosa said we'd all be forced to bend the knee to Trump?

// her WH salary was $179,700 annually - or just about $15k/month
// so $180k is enough to get her to say stupid shiat, but not enough to get her to shut up

I've already seen the right wing argument for it if it's true. "Black people use the N word all the time". So when you see it, and you will, ask them if they think black people mean in in the same way white people do.

Make it all legal by forcing them to specifiy exactly what she's not allowed to say for the $15k a month. As to the NDA for the agreement itself... well that's going to cost too.

I don't think it was a money calculation. She craves the spotlight. This is a person who can no more stay silent than someone with Tourette's and a megaphone strapped to their face.

They probably had a template PDF with $15K/month as the fee, and the name space and date space left blank. They don't know how to edit a PDF.

Maybe the can call Gates in to help with editing a PDF.

Oops. He's helping the feds at the moment.
