Trump's Disappointment Over Omarosa Manigault Newman's ongoing advertising campaign for her new book got under way on Tuesday morning. After tweets on Monday that criticized Manigault Newman as untrustworthy and incompetent, Trump lashed out in worse, more personal conditions.
"If you give an insane, crying Lowlife a break and give her a job in the White House, I guess it just did not work," he wrote on Twitter. "Good work from General Kelly to fire this dog fast!"
Apart from how "fast" the White House chief of staff had fired John F. Kelly Manigault Newman (months after Kelly assumed his role), Trump's denigration of his former employee was a "dog".
We're used to Trump using terms like "dog" or "animal" to deplete his opponents, of course. Earlier this year, there was a debate over Trump's use of the term "animals" to describe members of the criminal gang MS-13 and, in a dire situation, undocumented immigrant in a broader sense. We then noticed that Trump often called terrorism suspects and criminals animals: the terrorists in San Bernardino, the attackers in Paris in November 2015, two people who killed police officers in Louisiana just before he announced his candidacy. When an Republican Party office in North Carolina was attacked in 2016, he labeled the attackers "beasts of prey" because they "win" us.
We are also accustomed to using Trump with the term "dog" to reinforce his rhetoric about something that happens in a particularly nasty way.
Mitt Romney, Trump said repeatedly during the 2016 campaign, "smothered like a dog" in 2012, handing President Barack Obama a second term.
"The RNC has not won an important election in a long time, we've had Obama way too long," Trump said in April 2016. "The last election should have been won, except that Romney smothered like a dog." He choked said: "I can not breathe, I can not breathe!"
Journalist David Gregory, commentator Erick Erickson, television presenter Glenn Beck, and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex) were all criticized as dogs were fired or imprisoned Case of Cruz dismissing an employee like a dog Even the employees of a carrier factory in Indiana were fired like dogs, causing them to become Trump supporters.
"We will not let our companies leave without that there are consequences, "said Trump in July 2016. When one example Carrier left and they left 1,400 people, those 1,400 people followed me all over Indiana. They love Trump because I'm the only one who speaks their language MPLIANCEWITH. They were fired like dogs.
Notice how these comments differ from Trump's commentary on Manigault Newman, which was more in line with his descriptions of MS-13: itself was a dog
He had similar remarks about others In April 2015, someone asked him on Twitter why he replied Arianna Huffington as "unattractive inside and out"
A few years earlier, New York Times columnist Gail Collins wrote about a note she'd once received from Trump.
"During a time of depression, I called him a" financially troubled miller, "Collins wrote," and he sent me a copy of the column with my circled picture and "The Face of a Dog!" Above it
Trump was legitimately criticized during the campaign He mocked the appearance of Carly Fiorina, one of his contenders in the Republican presidential primaries, but he had a free pass with his supporters in the first few minutes of the first major debate Jail Prison
On August 6, 2015, Trump joined nine other leading Republican candidates on stage in Cleveland for a debate hosted by Fox News after Bret Baier from the station had asked the contestants whether they signed up for the later ones to support Republican candidates – a question that trumps Trump's promise – w asked the candidates individual questions about their eligibility.
Megyn Kelly, then Fox, went to Trump for the killing blow.
"Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is that you say your opinion and you do not use a politician's filter," she said. "But especially with women, it's not without its downsides: you've called women you do not like," big pigs, dogs, jerks, and disgusting animals. "
" Only Rosie O & Donnell, "Trump replied with a laugh. 19659026] "For the record, it was far beyond Rosie O'Donnell," Kelly replied, and continued, "Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should choose as president, and how would you Answer to the accusation of Hillary Clinton, who was probably the Democratic Party? Candidate that you are part of the war against women? "
" I think the big problem this country has is politically correct, "said Trump The crowd applauded.
For the record, it has not been only women to whom he specifically referred as dogs In the three years leading up to his campaign, he used the term to refer to the former Obama adviser David Axelrod the British politician Lord Sugar and the musician Mac Miller [19459027[TrumpwasannoyedthatMiller'ssong"DonaldTrump"earnedMillermoneynothim)
But Trump's defense in this debate was a signal to him, and he accepted the legitimate criticism He declared that he was "without a filter." It came at a critical moment in the main contest, when Trump was the front runner but not against his opponents has been, especially in a live television program, which was seen by millions of Americans. Trump turned his denigration of women, including referring to women as "dogs", into a demonstration of how effective he would be as president.
On Monday, at the end of his tweeting derogatory Manigault Newman, Trump noticed this himself. 19659030] "Although I know it is not 'presidential' to assume a lowly life like Omarosa," he wrote "and although I would rather not, this is a modern form of communication and I know that Fake News Media will work overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look as legal as possible."
Sorry, "he added, though it's thought he was not.
