White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was hit with a surprise interview about the claims in Omarosa Manigault’s controversial new book at Reagan International Airport — and she was not afraid to speak her mind.
TMZ ran into Sanders and asked her what she thinks of “UNHINGED,” the book in which Omarosa makes a number of explosive and unverified claims about President Donald Trump.
“I think it’s sad,” Sanders shot back. "The person that gave her the greatest opportunity; she showed who she is and that’s a totally disloyal individual, I think it’s sad.”

The TMZ reporter then asked Sanders if Omarosa should be “prosecuted” for leaking secretly recorded tapes of the president and other top White House officials.
Sanders declined to respond.
In a previous statement, Sanders accused the former White House official of lying.
“Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations,” Sanders said.
She added, “It’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration.”
She also accused Omarosa of showing a "blatant disregard for national security."
Since her first statement, Omarosa has leaked recordings of her firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and President Trump's reaction to her firing.
