What one sows one inevitably reaps. That Donald Trump would become President of the United States and the knowingly hire a reality star to the White House was sowing future shame. I understand that some might point out that Trump himself is a reality star, but that was only after becoming a billionaire businessman in the public eye for decades. Omarosa was undoubtedly cast and recast in the Apprentice because she was great for prime time TV. For those reasons, she was always unfit to serve in the White House. It was indeed poor judgment, but the shame and embarrassment she is now bringing upon the highest office in the land is all hers. That anyone would secretly record the President of the United States or the oval office staff is a national shame and it seems criminal. Trump detractors may applaud her antics, but make no mistake she shames us all as a nation. America is reaping what we have sowed and it’s fairly embarrassing.
She’s No Whistleblower
Those who would rise to her defense are calling Omarosa a “whistleblower” when she is in reality anything but. A whistleblower would expose crime and wrongdoing. A reality star reveals gossip and insults. A whistleblower acts to build up and rescue beloved institutions. A reality star seeks to defame them for personal popularity and attention. One can be the biggest anti-Trumper in the land and still look upon the actions of this reality start with disgust. It is embarrassing to have the White House turned into MTV’s the Real World. Trump can’t escape the poor judgement to hire her, but nor can she escape the shame she has intentionally brought upon us.
Did Donald Trump attempt to obstruct justice in the investigation of Michael Flynn? We don’t know, Omarosa didn’t tell us that. She secretly taped the President of the United States during a personal phone call to her about her firing. Is Jared Kushner profiting off his public service through his international dealings? We don’t know, Omarosa didn’t tell us that. She taped her own firing in the White House situation room so as to defame a Marine General and Chief of Staff doing his duty. Which brings us to the real question at hand.
Why Isn’t This Illegal?
Given the great lengths that foreign intelligence services will go through to get a plant inside the White House, how is it not illegal that a staffer can secretly tape the inner workings and publicize it? Even Donald Trump critic and former intelligence official James Clapper thinks it is absolutely unheard of that anyone would secretly tape anything in the White House situation room. A Russian or Chinese spy would likely receive a promotion if they were able to pull off such a feat. So why are any Americans applauding these shameful actions from a shameful reality star.
This is embarrassing America and yes, Trump bears some blame for making a poor hiring decision. One might can excuse the hiring of Flynn as he was a decorated General. One might believe Trump couldn’t have known the full depth of Paul Manafort’s criminal activity. But everyone with a television set knew the depravity and corruptions of one Omarosa. We sowed it and now we are reaping this national embarrassment. She deserves no public accolades and only shame from both Trump supporters and detractors. This is America’s White House and not Trumps or certainly not hers. Omarosa is a national shame and in the opinion of this author, a criminal.
