(Newser) – First she released a recording of White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her. Then she released a recording of President Trump from the next day expressing sympathy to her. Consider that sympathy officially gone: On Monday morning, Trump unloaded on Omarosa Manigault Newman in a three-part tweet:

  • 'Begged me': "Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time," he begins. "She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard...really bad things," he continues. "Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!"
  • Media shot: "While I know it's 'not presidential' to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible," Trump concludes. "Sorry!"
