Brian Kilmeade: Omarosa ‘Outsmarted’ President Trump Who Has ‘Taken the Bait’

On Wednesday, Brian Kilmeade said President Trump got played by Omarosa Manigault-Newman since she successfully goaded him into a new controversial squabble.

Kilmeade was speaking to his Fox & Friends colleagues when he said that Trump is probably helping his former Apprentice protégé sell her book – Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House – by going after her the way he has in the last few days. He compared the situation to how the White House inadvertently elevated Michael Wolff when they attacked his gossip-filled piece, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

“She has come out with a series of tapes,” Kilmeade said, “and in many ways, [she] seems to have outsmarted the president who has taken the bait and gone out and tweeted directly after her.”

The curvy couch made note of how Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced a lot of questions about Manigault-Newman yesterday, though they neglected to highlight the part where the press secretary said she couldn’t “guarantee” that her former colleague lied by saying there’s a tape of Trump saying the N-word. Kilmeade reacted to this by saying Trump would’ve done better tweeting about the issues instead of getting baited into fights with people.
