Frontline has a big election special airing next week, and they released a clip focusing on what people in Donald Trump‘s orbit consider the night he decided to run.
What night was that? Why, the night President Obama mocked him at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.
Omarosa and Roger Stone were both interviewed for the special, and Omarosa recalled how while watching Obama “hammering” Trump, she thought, “Oh, Barack Obama is starting something that I don’t know if he’ll be able to finish.”
Stone said Trump was motivated to run out of a desire to “show them all.”
And Omarosa gave this actual quote (I cannot emphasize enough that this is a real thing she said):
“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
