Someone sure has changed her tune since the days when she was telling everyone that they were going to have to "bow down to president Trump," hasn't she? Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman made an appearance on MSNBC this Sunday and told host Alex Witt that White House staffers had a crazy code for Trump:

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving, with her latest allegation that shows Donald Trump in a bad light.

The author of the newly released tell-all, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, told MSNBC on Sunday that whenever Trump did anything “insane” or “crazy,” White House staffers and others with ties to the administration would use the hashtag #TFA in text messages. It is a reference to the 25th Amendment, which would allow Vice President Mike Pence to take over in the case of impairment that prevents Trump from fulfilling his duties.

“We had a little hashtag, hashtag TFA, whenever he did something that was just so insane and so crazy and unhinged, when he would flip positions from one hour to the next, we’d just hashtag it ‘TFA’ and keep moving,” she said during the interview with MSNBC.

Omarosa’s allegation was the latest in a string of unflattering claims that the former reality TV star has made against the Trump administration since the release of her book in mid August. Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her in December.

I take everything this self-serving woman says with a grain of salt, but she's provided proof for other allegations she's made, so we'll see if she eventually provides the texts for this one.

In the meantime, we'll see if her former boss continues to lose his mind as he watches the hashtag #TFA trend on Twitter.
