Omarosa’s 15 Minutes Are Up, Book Sales Sink Like A Stone….
Omarosa doesn’t quite get the concept of just because someone is famous that this means that people want to pay attention to you.
Take for example your neighborhood watering hole’s resident belligerent drunk that tries to pick fights with everyone whenever they come in the bar.
Sure, he’s famous. He’s famous for all the wrong reasons and that fame doesn’t mean for one moment that people want to have anything to do with him.
Former Trump campaign and White House official Omarosa Manigault-Newman was a key fixture on most of the liberal media networks for about two weeks as she promoted her new book “Unhinged,” which purportedly details her time working in the Trump administration.
According to BizPacReview, that book levels a number of sharp criticisms and allegations against President Donald Trump, such as his supposedly diminishing mental health and his allegedly blatant and unmistakable racist and misogynistic views against minorities and women.
And then there was, of course, the supposed existence of an alleged audio tape where Trump can be heard using the infamous “N-word.”
The liberal media was only too happy to give Manigault-Newman a broad platform to promote her book of wild anti-Trump claims and air secretly recorded audio tapes, which they gladly hyped even as they routinely failed to deliver on expectations.
Ironically, Trump’s tweets in opposition to Manigault-Newman’s claims — he called her “crazed,” a “lowlife,” “wacky” and a “dog” — likely helped boost attention for her book ahead of it hitting bookstore shelves on August 14.
But according to a report from The Washington Post, Manigault-Newman is probably wishing she could be the subject of angry tweets from Trump once more, as sales for her book plummeted following its initial week of release.
The book reportedly sold more than 33,000 hardcover copies in its first week for sale, but those sale numbers dropped by more than 40 percent in the following week.
The most obvious reason for the substantial drop-off in sale numbers is that the book has largely been shown to be a work of fiction, as most of the wildest claims that were hyped by the media lack substance or verification.
Furthermore, the juiciest parts of the tell-all book had already been discussed ad nauseum by the media, leaving little reason for people at home to buy the book and read it all for themselves.
