Trump made two mistakes with Omarosa, first, hiring her, second, firing her.

When he first hired her, about a year ago to serve as a White House liaison to the black community, I remember turning to my wife in alarm.

“This won’t end well,” I said.

Nailed that one. Now America can’t get her to shut up. She tops every news cycle, and no amount of lipstick can obscure a character so vile.

Nobody liked her on the “Apprentice.” She was the house villain. Three times she was fired.

Nobody liked her when she got a job with Al Gore. They called her mean and “disruptive.”

Nobody liked her around the White House. Nobody trusted her. Sure enough she went around snooping and secretly recording everybody.

Why Trump picked her out of obscurity in the first place, and then gave her all these chances, is anybody’s guess. He must be kicking himself.

The truism that no good deed goes unpunished stands true once again…and now this talentless harpy is all over the airwaves blasting Trump, over what she says was his use of the n-word back during the “Apprentice” years.  Not that she ever heard it herself, but, she says, someone else did – and that’s good enough for her.

That’s also good enough for the media, which now has a new darling to replace porn star Stormy Daniels as a weapon to Get Trump. She’s all over the place, this Omarosa.

Over at NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Chuck Todd gave her the fullness of half an hour to vent her hatred of Trump. He never asked her, why the switch? She used to adore Trump. Well she did while she had her job in the White House. No, he never asked. Because the media are all about resisting Trump, as exposed in this thriller.

To that end, they will dance with any witness, no matter how tainted, disreputable and unreliable.

Have you no shame, Chuck – and how many times can we keep saying American journalism has reached a new low?

Only Savannah Guthrie, on the “Today” show challenged her. Good for Savannah. But consider that an anomaly.

Can a tell-all book be next? Are you kidding? It’s already a bestseller. People actually buy this trash. Like the man said – There’s a sucker born every minute.

For real writers, this is awfully depressing. Spend years toiling over a book, and get nothing. Then someone comes along dishing dirt, and bingo.

Nowadays it helps if the dishing is against Trump, and so I imagine the meeting going something like this between Omarosa and her publisher.

Publisher: It is known that you don’t play well with others. Nobody likes you. Even I don’t like you. How can we make anybody read this garbage you say you wrote?

Omarosa: I’ve got a reputation.

Publisher: That’s not something to bring up. TV Guide once listed you as among the nastiest TV villains of all time. That was in 2013, and nothing has changed.

Omarosa: I can make a scandal. I’m good at that.

Publisher: We love scandal. What have you got? There’s nothing in the book, which really is irreversible smut, and so dull. But people will buy ANYTHING if packaged right.

Omarosa: I can make something up. If it’s not too late.

Publisher: If it’s on Trump, it’s never too late. I can get you everywhere. The media are chomping for this. Think of something. Make it good.

Omarosa. Trouble is, he’s been good to me. Trump stood by me when no one else would.

Publisher: That won’t sell a single copy. Did he ever call you a bitch, because that’s what you are, you know?

Omarosa: Never.

Publisher: The n-word?

Omarosa: Trump? Never.

Publisher: Do you want to get rich, or don’t you?

Omarosa: I guess I can say that someone heard him say it…I can make that up.

Publisher: Good girl. Now you’re talking…roll the presses…and Leroy, get me Chuck Todd on the phone…CNN…The New York Times…USA Today
