Donald Trump Sparks Outrage After Calling Omarosa A 'Dog'

Manigault Newman released another new tape to CBS News on Tuesday morning.

Manigault Newman is currently on a media tour promoting Unhinged, her new tell-all book about her time working for the Trump administration. She has faced accusations of hypocrisy and cashing in, given that she didn’t speak out against Trump while working for him.
