Fox & Friends Host: Omarosa Has Outsmarted Trump

The Hill reports:

“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade said Wednesday that ex-White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has “outsmarted” President Trump by dragging him into a feud that will boost her book sales.

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

Kilmeade compared Trump’s response to Manigault Newman to the way he and the White House dealt with journalist Michael Wolff’s explosive book earlier this year, saying that by engaging with the criticism at all, the president is actually helping his former aide sell books.
