In a new column, Chait goes out on a limb in defending the savvy of Manigault Newman.
Before it hit shelves, plenty of people have questioned the veracity of the new tell-all book by former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.
The Guardian, which obtained an advance copy of the book, said Newman writes in her book that Trump used "the N-word" while taping "The Apprentice" and that he was caught on camera.
Manigault Newman's book also alleges how Trump made a farcical effort to sell copies of his book Trump: The Art Of The Deal at his inauguration as President in January previous year. In the book, she paints Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure. Asked by TMZ if it's fair to say that the president is "causing tensions among African-Americans right now" after the "LeBron James situation", she replied with a s short sentence: "he wants to start a race war".
