Last night, Omarosa Manigault-Newman released an audio tape purporting to show the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump offering her a do-nothing job on Donald Trump‘s 2020 campaign, in exchange for her silence over her time at the White House.
After the tape came out, Lara Trump issued a statement, calling Omarosa’s reveal a “betrayal.”
“I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on,” she said.
Her husband, Eric Trump, went one step not nearly as far, instead issuing a subtweet directed at the former reality TV star turned official in his father’s White House.
I truly hate disloyal people

A truly savage subtweet.
But lest you think that was the only way Eric Trump rushed to his wife’s defense, he also “liked” two tweets about the matter.
.@LaraLeaTrump is one of the nicest, hardest working people I’ve met in Trump world. @Omarosa is a lowlife who squandered the best opportunity anyone has ever given her. She will regret this later in life, there’s no question. #MAGA 🇺🇸

Latest tape from Omarosa shows how much Trump family cares about pocketbooks of our donors when @LaraLeaTrump warns about all campaign $$ coming from average Americans. Lara says the right thing protecting our donors and helping people understand we are powered by the people!

Naturally, Twitter had a few thoughts.
Your brother cheated on his wife. https://t.co/LM2J1mBy7y

Omarosa has promised many more tapes, so maybe Eric Trump will have a chance to do a stronger tweet next time.
