Omarosa Manigault Newman appeared on MSNBC Monday to discuss her new anti-Trump book and faced very little tough questioning from her interviewers.

Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi opted not to ask Omarosa about the many contradicting statements she has made since her book “Unhinged” was released, instead allowing her to question Trump’s mental health and accuse him of being racist.

“I think it’s sad with all of the things going on in the country that he would take time out to insult me and to insult my intelligence. This is his pattern with African-Americans,” Omarosa asserted. “It’s actually really sad to watch him become unhinged, no pun intended.”

Velshi and Ruhle didn’t mention the fact that there was a discrepancy in Omarosa’s claim that she heard a tape of Trump using the n-word. Additionally, both Frank Lutz and George Conway denied Omarosa’s claims that Trump said racist things around them or about them. (RELATED: NPR Host Calls Out Omarosa Over Discrepancy In Trump Racism Allegation) 

The MSNBC anchors also did not note that Omarosa contradicted herself on whether or not Trump knew that she was being fired from her job in the White House. (RELATED: Omarosa’s Trump Tape Casts Doubt On Her Earlier Claims) 

The toughest line of questioning Omarosa faced asked why she chose to stay in the White House and not speak up about her misgivings while she was employed there.

Omarosa explained that it is not appropriate to publicly criticized your employer and that she chose to handle complaints through the proper channels at the time.
