President Donald Trump on Tuesday called Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog" on Twitter, prompting outrage by critics who said the comment was a racially charged attack on the former aide, who is a black woman.submitted by usatoday to u/UsaToday [link] [comments]
"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out," the president tweeted. "Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!"
The reference is to White House chief of staff (and retired general) John Kelly, who fired Manigault Newman last year.
It's far from the first time the president has called someone a "dog," and the word isn't limited to women or people of color. In 2012, he commented on actress Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson "like a dog." In 2013, rapper Mac Miller was called an "ungrateful dog." In 2015, Trump said conservative political commentator Glenn Beck had been "fired like a dog" by Fox News.
And later in 2015, just a couple months out from announcing his presidential campaign, he called media mogul Arianna Huffington a "dog who wrongfully comments on me."
