The Unbearable Lightness of the Alleged Trump/N-word Tape

Deroy Murdock, The American Spectator

This elusive recording may be as big a hoax as the Trump-Putin plot to steal the White House from Hillary. But those who hate Trump’s guts will “know deep down” that the N-word recording “really exists,” even if there is no such thing. And this “knowledge” will fuel even deeper hatred of Trump among those who do not request even a proton of proof before believing the worst things imaginable about the President of the United States.

Omarosa’s Dishonorable Secret Recordings Threaten Future Presidents

Hans von Spakovsky, CNS News

The perils of modern technology—such as button and pen cameras—combined with Washington’s pervasive “leak culture,” leave would-be presidents little choice but to require non-disclosure agreements. Otherwise, the odds of them getting their advisers’ “candid, objective, and even blunt or harsh opinions” are close to nil. And it’s precisely that kind of input presidents need when making decisions about vital issues that affect the health, safety, and prosperity of our nation and the American people.

Why Omarosa’s antics will fail to undermine Trump’s progress for black Americans

Patrice Onwuka, Washington Examiner

Disparaging Trump for his rhetoric about people of color is popular among black politicians and media pundits. Omarosa assumed that repeating a common refrain about him being racist would catapult her to instant stardom in the so-called “Resistance” movement. But despite her attention-seeking antics, blacks are increasingly recognizing they have a lot to gain from the Trump presidency. The rest is just noise.

NBC Lowers the Bar for Omarosa

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

As with the "Access Hollywood" tape, NBC seems to be trying to do penance for the "sin" of building Trump's national profile over the years with "The Apprentice" and then "Celebrity Apprentice." These "news" outlets complain that when President Trump attacks them for pushing "fake news," he is undermining "democratic norms." That's not correct. He is decrying the media's Democratic norms.

Omarosa tries to channel Anita Hill

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Expect to see more of Omarosa and hear more of her attacks. The White House issued a statement calling Omarosa a “disgruntled former White House staffer” whose book is “riddled with lies and false accusations.” The president said Omarosa begged him for a job “with tears in her eyes.” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the former aide’s attempts at character assassination “sad.” It is sad. But when a political party has lost the policy debate and has nothing left but personal attacks that is even sadder.
