Former reality TV personality Omarosa Manigault Newman, is promoting her explosive new book, Unhinged: An Insiders Account of the Trump White House, about her time working for the Trump administration as the Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the White House.

During her book press tour, she's made appearances on Chuck Todd's Meet the Press and the Today show with Savannah Guthrie, to speak about some of the outrageous incidents and claims she writes about in her book — everything from secretly recording officials to President Trump using the N-word to his mental competency.

She has a lot to say about the White House.

"Donald Trump is a con and has been masquerading as someone who is actually open to engagement with diverse communities," she told Todd.

Below are the some of the most outrageous claims from Manigault Newman's interviews:

5. Trump Asked Her To Do Bizarre Things

Manigault Newman revealed to Todd that Trump would frequently ask her to pull up articles about various things like Joe Scarborough and Mika [Brzezinski]. "I complied... Yes, I was one of the people feeding him the things that he asked for because he is the President of the United States," she said.

4. Trump and His Administration Knowingly Lie

“The president lies to the American people. Sarah Huckabee stands in front of the country and lies every single day," Manigault Newman expressed.

3. She Has Multiple Tapes That Reveal Trump Using the N-Word

"He was talking about some African Americans in the production during the course of The Apprentice, which is unacceptable. Here’s the thing. Why don’t we ask Donald Trump a simple question — ‘Donald J. Trump, have you ever used the N-word?’ — and allow him to respond? Because the people who have this tape intend to release this tape," she told Guthrie.

2. Secretly Recording Trump Reacting to Her Firing

"[Trump] probably instructed General Kelly to do it so he could keep his hands clean... the other question is: Is General Kelly running this country or is the President?" she posed to Guthrie.

"I had just been threatened by General [John] Kelly who said that things could get ugly for me, that there would be damage to my reputation. So I was being very careful,” Manigault Newman added on the Today show. “I was very concerned about my well-being, about what these powerful people would do to me after they threatened me.”

The White House has responded to Manigault Newman's claims with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying, “The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security – and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee."
