When the Stormy Daniels “scandal” broke, CNN just couldn’t get enough of her and her lawyer.
In just 10 weeks, the liberal network interviewed Michael Avenatti 74 times — 74!
But something surprising has happened with Omarosa Manigault Newman. The former White House aide and longtime “friend” of President Trump hasn’t gotten the same treatment.
Newman has penned a tell-all book, “Unhinged,” that says Trump is off his rocker and a bit of a racist. The book’s gotten huge play across the mainstream media, especially MSNBC. But she hasn’t been able to book an appearance on CNN.
“Don Lemon was offered one of the first cable interviews and passed,” an insider told the New York Post.
We’re told Manigault Newman was also scheduled to appear on Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, but CNN canceled the appearance.
Another source said CNN was initially only interested in booking commentators who would trash-talk the reality-show vixen. “They only wanted to book guests with nothing positive to say about her. They were specifically looking for people who would provide a more negative slant when discussing Omarosa,” the source said.
Now that makes more sense. CNN really just wanted to bash Trump and all those around him. Because Newman was a longtime supporter, the network isn’t excited about putting her on the air.
