Omarosa Stuck in the Craw of Trump

Try as hard as he might, Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States can’t dislodge a 44 year-old ordained Baptist Preacher from his craw.

Trump was enjoying his summer vacation playing golf at one of his resorts in Jersey when Omarosa Manigault Newman got stuck in his craw with the publication of her book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.

Trump attempted to clear his craw of Omarosa’s unflattering account of her former boss by calling her “a lowlife.”

What a topsy turvy turn of events, an alleged whore-monger calling a Black woman of the cloth, “a lowlife.”

Omarosa, a graduate of Central State University with an earned Masters in Journalism from Howard University, flipped the script and produced a very clear audio-tape of her firing by Chief of Staff General Kelly in the White House Situation Room.

Bam, a rather heady move by a lowlife, I’ll say.

Trump, choking all the way back from Jersey to the White House without clearing his craw, devoted over 1900 characters on Twitter Tuesday, August 14, to belittling and dehumanizing the author of three books.

Again, he punctuated his disdain for Omarosa by calling her “a lowlife,” then went deep to unhinge her from his craw once and for all by referring to her as “that dog.”

So what are the odds that a white man who calls a Black woman a dog does not have the “N” word in his vocabulary?

In the cultural degenerate world Trump frequents, we all know the slang“that dog” is a metaphor for a dog with pups, i. e., “a bitch.”

Another odd juxtaposition given Trump’s close similarity with that of a wretched cur.

While castigating another Black woman may bolster Trump among his conservative white base, it does little to quiet the racists accusations hurled at him in Omarosa’s book.

Moreover, any credibility issues Trump raises are made moot as Omorosa has audio-tape recordings of the events she depicts in Unhinged.

I suspect Trump will become unhinged before he can rid his craw of a pretty smart Black woman, as sagacious as he and set on revenge.
