"All hell is breaking loose in Washington as the battle between President Trump and his former adviser/Apprentice contestant Omarosa rages on," Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. "I'm not sure who I'm supposed to root for in this — it's like Lord Voldemort versus King Joffrey." In her new book, Unhinged, Manigault Newman "called the president racist, a bigot, and a misogynist. She also claims to have heard a recording of Trump using the N-word several times," he added, reading some of Trump's tweeted denials, including the one where he celebrated firing "that dog" Omarosa. "Only Donald Trump would defend himself from being racist by saying something sexist," Kimmel sighed. "I think this is what Melania was talking about when she said Be Best."
Manigault Newman got some backup on the N-word tape from fellow former Apprentice contestants Penn Jillette and Tom Arnold, and she also released a secret recording of Trump campaign officials talking about how to respond to a tape of Trump saying the N-word. The White House is worried that Omarosa has dozens of other tapes, that other staffers have tapes, and that the Apprentice tape will come out, "and on top of all those, we uncovered this tape today of the president using all kinds of N-words, N-words galore," Kimmel said.
On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon put on his Trump outfit and makeup and anchored the Trump News Network. "Omarosa calls me a racist and a misogynist, but that is ridiculous — I am not a racist," he said. "My Cabinet is full of African-Americans. There's Ben Carson. Anyway..."
Late Night's Seth Meyers tried actually firing a dog. "We had our fun here," he said after the predictable, adorable debacle, "but in regards to this Omarosa business, let's not forget that anyone who calls a black woman a dog is a racist with a rotted-out soul." Watch below. Peter Weber
