President Trump unleashed a furious early morning tweet directed at his former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. In the tweet sent out Tuesday at 7:31 a.m., Trump referred to Omarosa as a "dog".
"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. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!" Trump tweeted.
Trump didn't refer to Omarosa as a "bitch", but a female dog is defined as a bitch.
Trump lashed out at Omarosa after she apparently leaked audio of discussions that took place inside the Situation Room, also known as a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) within the White House.
Recording devices are strictly prohibited in SCIF rooms in the White House. Omarosa was terminated earlier in the year for misuse of government vehicles, "money issues" and other violations.
The response to Trump's tweet was outrage.
One user tweeted:
"Nothing like waking up to see the President of the United States refer to a black woman as a dog. This level of discourse is disgusting and appalling at a national level. Those who vocally or silently support this behavior at this point have no excuse."
Another user tweeted:
How is this okay? You are the POTUS and you are calling a woman a lowlife and a dog. You are the most unpresidential POTUS in the history of our country. So disheartened by your attacks on Twitter.
