After Omarosa claimed there are recordings of Donald Trump using racist slurs, the president fired back by insulting her intelligence and saying she ‘begged’ him for a job!

“Wacky Omarosa [Manigault], who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time,” President Donald Trump, 72, tweeted on Aug. 13. This attack came days after an excerpt of her forthcoming book claimed there are recordings of him using the N-word. “She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard…really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired!”

 

Update: He tweeted again: “While I know it’s ‘not presidential’ to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!” So, now he’s concerned with not being presidential?

First off, why did it take Donald Trump 23 minutes in between him writing the first half of that message and the second? Secondly, what’s with Trump saying Omarosa “now got fired for the last time”? She left his White House in December 2017, about nine months ago. Did Donald just now realize that she’s no longer working for him because of her recent television appearances? It would…sorta…make sense. Donald seemingly doesn’t really know what’s going on, certainly when it comes to Omarosa. During the Aug. 13 episode of the TODAY show, she played an audio recording of a conversation she claims went down one day after her firing, per NBC News.

 

“Omarosa? Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” Trump is allegedly heard saying on the tape. Omarosa replies by saying “General [JohnKelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave.” “No…I, I, Nobody even told me about it,” Donald said, allegedly. “You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it…I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

 

Trump probably also doesn’t love that his former friend (and White House aide) is claiming she has audio recordings of him using the N-word. Omarosa writes in her new book, Unhinged: An Insider Account of The Trump White House, that Trump was allegedly caught on mic using the racial slur “multiple times.” She also has recordings of her actual firing, which is pretty mind-blowing since it allegedly happened in the Situation Room. That room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, and if Omarosa was able to sneak a recording device into it, then General Kelly has a bigger problem on his hands than the thinly-veiled threat he made to Ms. Manigault.

Are we seeing double? ‘Riverdale’ star Mark Consuelos and his son, Michael, looked more like twins than a father-son duo at the Teen Choice Awards! See the uncanny pic here!

Honestly, this is wild! We all already know that Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa‘s son, Michael Consuelos, 21, is a total cutie, but it didn’t click until now just how much he looks like his famous dad! For real — we didn’t know that they were father and son, we’d totally believe that they were brothers! No, not even brothers — twins! It’s not just that Mark’s smokin’ hot and doesn’t look 47 at all. Mark and Michael have the same eyes, nose, and that winning smile! They’re adorable. If you don’t believe us, scroll down and see the full-length pic of Mark and Michael that Kelly posted on Instagram from the Teen Choice Awards red carpet!

Mark’s at Teen Choice because his show, Riverdale, is nominated for … basically every award ever. Specifically, Mark himself is up for Choice TV Villain. And good news — he won! He totally deserves it; he’s horrifying onRiverdale! The CW show and its cast won an insane number of awards at Teen Choice. Maybe next year, Michael will join them onstage. That’s because he’sabout to appear on the show!

That’s right; Michael landed a role on Riverdale to star alongside his dad! Talent definitely runs in the Consuelos-Ripa family. Michael will appropriately be playing the teen version of his dad’s character, Hiram Lodge. We can’t wait to see what kind of hijinks Hiram got into when he was a kid.

For more pics of Michael and Mark, scroll through THIS gallery. The evidence that they’re totally twins is going to build with every pic. And if you’re not convinced, well, enjoy the hot photos!

All you lefties out there — this one’s for you! It’s International Left-Handers Day, and it turns out there are TONS of left-handed celebs. Find out who joins Prince William in this exclusive club!

Left-handed peeps, you’re not alone. There are a surprising amount of celebrities who use their left hands, but apparently they just don’t talk about it that much! Prince William is a proud leftie, and if you look closely when he’s doing photo ops, he’s usually holding wife Kate Middleton‘s right hand. You know, when they’re actually allowed to show PDA. His dad, Prince Charles, is also left-handed! We wonder if William’s children, Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte picked up the trait!

But William totally wants that to happen. He once said (before Charlotte and Louis were born) that he hoped George would be left-handed, “so he can be a brainbox.” He’s referring to the legend that left-handed are more intelligent than right-handers, as a huge number of artists, musicians, actors, and scientists are left-handed. Left-handedness actually runs in the royal family. Left-handedness stretches back much further than just William and Charles.Queen Victoria was left-handed, as well as King George VIQueen Elizabeth II‘s father. There may have been more, but back in the day many left-handed people were forced to use their right hand. Weird, right?

The late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was left-handed. As a musician, he struggled to find gear that catered to it. “I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left-handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. I’ve only owned two of them,” Kurt once said in an interview. Fellow left-handed music legends, like Paul McCartney and the late David Bowie, must have also faced this problem when playing!

The girls in Fifth Harmony kicked off the post-Camila Cabello era with their first performance since her contentious exit from the group … and no one challenged her chops.

The foursome performed their song, “Work from Home,” at Wednesday’s People’s Choice Awards in L.A. — a song Camila used to sing the first verse on — but rather than have a new voice on the part, it was completely skipped over.

However, Camila or not, the rest of the performance was flawless.

1. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

It’s the year 1806, and most people believe that magic has been long gone, until a reclusive gentleman named Mr. Norrell appears and reveals his magical ability, gaining him a small measure of unwelcome celebrity. Soon he has taken on a student, the wild and adventurous Jonathan Strange, and the two embark on an adventure that takes them through the Napoleonic Wars and straight into the magical realm of the Raven King. Given the sheer size of the book, there’s obviously more to the plot, but if you are a fan of witty 19th century history, you’ll absolutely be a fan of this. An added bonus is that if you’re unable to finish this whale of a book, you can always tune into the BBC miniseries!

2. Sunshine by Robin McKinley

This is a light urban fantasy that reads like a paranormal romance, but goes so much deeper than that. Set in an alternate universe where humanity is living in the aftermath of the “Voodoo Wars” (a war between humans and supernatural creatures), the action of the story centers on Rae “Sunshine” Seddon, a baker who just so happens to get abducted by vampires. This traumatic experience reveals Sunshine’s latent magical powers (an ability to control, you guessed it, sunshine!) and sets her on a path to truly discover who she is. This standalone novel might end up leaving you hungry for more, and not just thanks to the loving descriptions of the heroine’s special cinnamon rolls.
