Trump and Omarosa Had a ‘F*cking Weird' Fight With Vietnam Vets
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastEarly on in the Donald Trump administration, the president vested many of his nearest and dearest with tasks they were woefully unprepared for—and Apprentice superstar Omarosa Manigault Newman was no exception.

Long before she was his chief antagonist, Manigault Newman was tapped by President Trump to handle veterans issues for the White House—causing immediate backlash from vets organizations who read this as a slap in the face and a betrayal of his campaign rhetoric about "taking care of our veterans."

After some vocal public shaming from military veterans and advocates, Trump, accompanied by Manigault Newman, met with principals from various vets organizations in the Roosevelt Room on March 17, 2017.

Kasich Won't Win in 2020, but He Might Make Trump Lose
Charles Krupa/ShutterstockThe 2018 midterm elections are less than 100 days away. But get ready: The 2020 presidential contest is already gearing up. And Ohio Gov. John Kasich looks more and more like he's ready to jump into it.

Officially, Kasich is taking a "maybe yes, maybe no" stance. But his strategist, John Weaver, sure is making it sound like Kasich will get to "yes," telling the Washington Post that the Kasich team will "bring a machete to a knife fight" with Trump.

The White House counters that Kasich's machete will go unnoticed because "no one" is "showing up to that fight." Except that Trump is himself drawing spectators to the prospective fight by tweeting about Kasich. And Weaver is very, very good at getting press attention for his candidates (think of John McCain's Straight Talk Express in 2000).

Stephen Colbert Roasts Lara Trump for Omarosa Tape: ‘Send My Worst Son's Wife'
CBS"Do you ever think maybe it wasn't worth firing somebody?" Stephen Colbert asked in his monologue Thursday night. Because President Trump has "gotta be thinking that about Omarosa."

Omarosa Manigault-Newman's Unhinged book tour rolled on today with the release of yet another secretly-recorded tape, this one featuring the voice of Lara Trump, wife of Eric, who can be heard offering the fired Trump aide $15,000 a month for a job in which part of the deal would require staying "positive" about the president. In an interview with MSNBC Thursday, Omarosa described the offer as an attempt "to buy my silence, to censor me, and to pay me off."

But after listening to the tape, Colbert really only had one question: "Why is Lara Trump in charge of this?"

Aretha Franklin Bashed Trump in Private, Blew Off Inauguration Invite
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastThe late "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin hated the political rise of Donald Trump. But that didn't stop him from trying, and failing, to book her to perform at his 2017 inauguration.

Shortly after his shock election victory, then President-elect Trump tasked Tom Barrack, his longtime friend and the chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, with reaching out to Franklin to ask if she would perform at an inaugural event and concert, according to three sources familiar with what happened. Trump had long considered the legendary singer a friend, and wanted the offer framed as an opportunity to help bring the country back together after a brutal, bruising presidential election.

However, Team Trump's contacts in Hollywood failed to secure the legendary singer for the inauguration.
