Wonkette usually has a pretty hard and fast rule against writing about Omarosa Manigault Newman, because oh my God, one reality TV idiot in the White House is enough, thanks. But now she, who left the White House under questionable circumstances at best, has gone and written a book, so break our rule we must. And no, we are not going to Fire And Fury it up in here at the Wonkette, because though Michael Wolff's work is often sloppy, he still has a shred of credibility. Omarosa, on the other hand, is ... Omarosa.

But good God, she is telling some specific stories, and they sure do seem like they might be true. SPOILER, a bunch of them are about Donald Trump being balls-out racist, which is just factcheck OBVIOUSLY.


The write-up in The Guardian says Trump used the N-word all the fucking time when he was hosting "The Apprentice," and that it's on tape. Tom Arnold says that too. Pretty sure that's a quorum! (Manigault Newman says she has lots of Trump tapes, because she did wire tapps to him all the time. And if that is true, how many wire tapps do you think every hostile intelligence service in the world has in the White House right now? ALL OF THEM KATIE, or even more than that?)

Look at how Omarosa says Trump allegedly speaks about George Conway, husband of Kellyanne, who is half-Filipino:

Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quotes the president as saying. "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo."

Both flip and goo-goo are terms of racial abuse for Filipinos.

WHOA IF TRUE. We should note that none other than George Conway says this claim is bullshit, and as evidence says he didn't really start going hard after Trump until after Omarosa was quit-fired from the White House.

But if it is true ...

Well if it's true, for one thing, can we just say we are not surprised at how old-timey Donald Trump's racism is? It's so specific! It so very much sounds like the words of an old septuagenarian racist New York real estate developer who was raised by a racist New York real estate developer who got arrested at a Klan rally -- New York of course being a town where once upon a time, there was a different neighborhood for every ethnicity and everybody was racist at each other.

Also, if there is even a shred of credibility to this, then KELLYANNE CONWAY, HOW DO YOU STAY WITH HIM? No, by "him" we do not mean with your husband, though we're a-guessin' one of you has been sleeping on the couch a whole lot over certain George Conway tweets about the president. We mean how do you stay with your other man, the one who allegedly yells racisms about your beloved husband? Have you no shame! Have you no care for your marital vows, which presumably at least implied that if your employer calls your husband a "flip" and a "goo goo," you MUST INPEACH?

Jesus, Conway. Allegedly.

Here is more about Trump's racism, according to Omarosa:

In another damning passage, she describes his "broken outlook" and how "the bricks in his racist wall kept getting higher", wondering if he did "want to start a race war". She adds: "The only other explanation was that his mental state was so deteriorated that the filter between the worst impulses of his mind and his mouth were completely gone."

Gonna go ahead and mark everything in that paragraph as factcheck true. Building a wall out of racist bricks? AYUP. Maybe wants to start a race war? Well, Omarosa is just saying she wonders. President Sundowner being so mentally deteriorated his brain can't even control his mouth? Uh, yes, judge, may we introduce into evidence Donald Trump's entire presidency, if it please the court?

The Washington Post has its own write-up, which says that according to the book, the Trump campaign offered Omarosa a $15K a month job if she would agree to STFU about her time in the White House, courtesy of this one lady named Lara Trump. She did not take that offer, she says.

The book also says Donald Trump eats paper. Like puts it in his mouth and eats it. Factcheck OH WHY THE FUCK NOT, the man looks directly at eclipses, who gives a shit what he eats. Maybe he does!

It also says Trump has a tanning bed in the White House residence, so we'll just leave you with that mental image, of Trump's chunk body in the glow of a tanning bed, his old balls oiled up for maximum frying.

You've seen those ridiculous goggle spots around his eyes, it could totally be true.

Republicans are devouring each other's carcasses, and we are here for it! Especially when one of those Republicans is King Kris of the Kansas Votefucker Klan ... errr, Clan! It's been a week since Kansans cast their votes in the gubernatorial primary, and the GOP looks to be rolling up its sleeves for a slugfest.

As we type, Kobach leads by 298 votes out of more than 314,000 cast -- a whopping 0.00095 percent, if you round up! The Kansas GOP begged Donald Trump to stay out of the race and leave the field clear for sitting governor Jeff Colyer, who took over when Sam Brownback wandered off to bring Jesus to the Hottentots on behalf of the US government. Safe bet that Colyer would be gearing up for the general election now if President Twitterthumbs hadn't flapped his yap. So thanks for that, Donny!

No, really, THANKS!

Remember the hanging chad debacle in Florida? Now picture it in a landlocked state with more cows than people. It's like fantasy island for Devin Nunes, ALLEGEDLY.

Oh, but we are to kid!

After first insisting he wasn't going to recuse from the counting, Secretary of State Kris Kobach (one and the same!) wrote Colyer a fabulously bitchy letter agreeing to hand off the tabulation to his deputy, Eric Rucker. Colyer had made the shocking suggestion that Kobach delegate responsibility to the Kansas attorney general, rather than his own political appointee, and Kobach was stretched out on the settee with a fit of the vapors at the gross impropriety of it all!

I will not breach the public trust and arbitrarily assign my responsibilities to another office that is not granted such authority by the laws of Kansas.

After several anguished paragraphs, Kobach closed by remonstrating that Colyer was betraying his office by destroying the faith of Kansans in the sacred integrity of their electoral process.

As governor of Kansas, your unrestrained rhetoric has the potential to undermine the public's confidence in the election process. May I suggest that you trust the people of Kansas have made the right decision at the polls and that our election officials will properly determine the result as they do in every election.

Said the guy whose entire adult life has been dedicated to whipping up panic about millions of imaginary illegal alien voters.

So now these two princes can kick the crap out of each other WITH VOTES, specifically, provisional ballots cast by unaffiliated voters under the supervision of poorly trained poll workers. Kansas holds closed primaries, meaning only registered Republicans can vote to select the GOP candidate, BUT an unaffiliated voter can cast a vote by checking a box identifying as a Democrat or a Republican at the polling place. This was news to some poll workers, who mistakenly directed over one thousand unaffiliated voters to use provisional ballots without checking the box indicating party preference. Whoops!

So, will those provisional ballots be counted based on voter intent? Or tossed based on strict interpretation of the statute? And does Kansas law mandate tossing mail-in ballots that arrive without a postmark on Wednesday, since there's no forensic proof that they were mailed before midnight on Tuesday? And how disgusted will the Kansas electorate be when one of these assholes emerges from the melée holding the other one's scalp? And how many millions of dollars are going to be spent on litigating the Republican primary while this nice lady Laura Kelly, the Democratic minority whip of the Kansas Senate, is out campaigning for November?

Even before this debacle, Kobach looked significantly weaker against Kelly than Colyer, with self-funded Libertarian Jeff Orman threatening to throw a wrench in the works. The Wichita Eagle reports on a Remington Research Poll conducted in July:

In a Kelly-Orman-Kobach race, the poll puts Kelly and Kobach effectively in a dead heat — 36 percent for Kelly and 35 percent for Kobach, with Kelly's lead within the margin of error. Orman has 12 percent.

Colyer leads in a three-way race with Kelly and Orman, according to the poll. In that scenario, Colyer receives 38 percent of the vote, while Kelly gets 28 percent and Orman receives 10 percent.

Which is ONE POLL, in a deeply red state, but ... Kobach is a crap candidate who's likely to emerge from this fight with two black eyes and a pissed off base. If there's anyone who can blow this election, it's Kris Kobach.

Keep fighting, Kris! You can do it! (And now we need a shower.)

And YOU need an OPEN THREAD!
