Body Language Analysis No. 4338: Donald Trump, Omarosa, and Wikileaks Emails - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

On the same day Donald Trump called Omarosa, "... that Dog" in a Tweet, Ms. Manigault Newman revealed that then-candidate Trump was aware of the hacked emails before WikiLeaks publicly released them in July of 2016 during the Democratic National Convention.

What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of three crucial moments during an interview Ms. Manigault Newman gave on 14 August 2018 with Katie Tur.

KATIE TUR [continuing at 2:07, over-talking]: ... You say corruption, but do you mean coordination? Anything that Robert Mueller would be interested in whether Donald Trump was coordinating with Russia - 'r he knew about the emails during the campaign - that sort of thing?

OMAROSA MANIGAULT: I think that he should come clean with the American people. I think that he should be honest about what he did during the campaign AND - what he continues to do at the White House.

KATIE TUR: You were instructed, according to your book - to bring up the emails at every point you could at the end of the twen - twenty sixteen campaign?

OMAROSA MANIGAULT [over-talking]: That's, that's correct.

KATIE TUR [over-talking]: Hillary Clinton's emails?

OMAROSA MANIGAULT: Yes. That was our talker. We were to talk -

KATIE TUR [over-talking]: Did Donald Trump know about those emails before they came out?


KATIE TUR: He knew about them.


KATIE TUR: He knew what was coming out before WikiLeaks released them

OMAROSA MANIGAULT [over-talking]: Yes §

KATIE TUR: You're saying Donald Trump had a back channel.

OMAROSA MANIGAULT: I didn't say that. You did. But I will say that -

KATIE TUR [over-talking]: How did you know [inaudible] this? 

OMAROSA MANIGAULT: - I am going to expose the corruption that went on in the campaign and in the White House (tight tongue jut, 2:56). I'm going to continue to blow the whistle on all of this.

During 2:42 (notated in the dialog by the Ω symbol), in her response to Katie Tur's question, "Did Donald Trump know about those emails before they came out?", Omarosa Manigault Newman exhibits a classic Contempt display just after she says, "Absolutely".

Four seconds later, during 2:46 (just after she says, "Yes", notated in the dialog by the § symbol), Ms. Manigault Newman exhibits a very telling combination of Contempt coupled with a Suppressed Smile.

The particular amalgam of:

• Contempt
• Suppressed Smile

... is indicative of Schadenfreude.

Schadenfreude is a German word describing "the experience of pleasure, joy, or self-satisfaction that comes from learning of or witnessing the troubles, failures, or humiliation of another." (Wikipedia)

During 2:56 (notated in the dialog by the symbol), just after she says, "I am going to expose the corruption that went on in the campaign and in the White House", Ms. Manigault Newman displays a Tight Tongue Jut.

A Tight Tongue Jut (not to be confused with a Loose Tongue Jut or a Wide Open Tongue Jut which have completely different meanings) indicates the thought emotions of:

• Disgust
• Disdain
• Repulsion

While the closing of one's eyelids is not a required component of a tight tongue jut, in this cluster scenario such a dynamic indicates an amplification of her emotions.

SUMMARY: Nonverbal Analysis of Omarosa Manigault Newman during this video interview indicates she believes that then-candidate Donald Trump had foreknowledge of hacked emails released by WikiLeaks. She is being truthful.

Moreover, Ms. Manigault Newman also feels disgust, disdain, repulsion, contempt, and schadenfreude towards President Trump.
