A tearful Omarosa Manigault-Newman made more shocking remarks about President Trump to her housemates on Thursday’s episode of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.
Omarosa, who the White House said was fired from her White House job in December, trashed the president by confirming she ‘would never vote for him again in a million years’.
The former self-proclaimed ‘Trumplican’-turned-Trump-hater was heard telling fellow ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate, Keshia Knight Pulliam – who played the lovable Rudy on the hit family sitcom ‘The Cosby Show’ – that Pulliam’s relationship to the now-disgraced comedian is similar to her and Trump’s.
‘Only you know your interwork and relationship to Mr. Cosby,’ Omarosa told Pulliam. ‘That’s the same thing with me and Mr Trump.’
The strained ex-political aide said: ‘It’s not something that can be minimized,’ while Pulliam replied: ‘It’s comparing apples to oranges.’
Omarosa went on, ‘but you don’t see the similarities?,’ and Pulliam backed up her argument: ‘It’s a different situation because this man is running our country and being a voice of a whole country of people.’
The ex-communications director for the administration’s Office of Public Liaison was seen nodding to fellow TV personality Ross Mathews who questioned if Americans should be concerned about the state of our country currently.
Mathews replies to her nod yes: ‘Ugh… don’t say that. Because we are worried, but I need you to say “No, it is going to be OK.”‘
With Trump at the helm, she says, America ‘is going to not be okay. It’s not… It’s so bad.’
White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters Thursday that the administration’s reaction to Omarosa’s deep cuts was taken by them ‘not very seriously.’
Shah said: ‘Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this is the fourth time we let her go.
‘She had limited contact with the president while here… she has no contact now.’
Omarosa’s anti-Trump rant further included a claim that she ‘was haunted by tweets every single day, like, “What is he going to tweet next?”‘
In hushed tones, she said that she did her best to be a voice of reason, advising Trump that his take-no-prisoners social media style wasn’t helping him.
‘I tried to be that person, and then all of the people around him attacked me,’ she added, singling out Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, for the blame.
‘It was like, “Keep her away. Don’t give her access. Don’t let her talk to him.” And it’s like, Ivanka’s there, Jared’s there.’
When asked if there’s anyone left at the White House who has the power to intervene, she shrugged.
‘I don’t know. I’m not there. It’s not my circus, not my monkeys,’ Omarosa said.
‘I’d like to say “not my problem,” but I can’t say that.’
Omarosa, who met the president while taping The Apprentice, insisted she had honorable intentions when she accepted a role in the Trump White House.
‘I felt like it was, like, a call to duty. I felt that I was serving my country, not serving him,’ she said.
‘When ever was it accepting a political appointment? It was always about the country.’
When ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ hosts introduced her as a contestant, Omarosa had already predicted a tough battle ahead.
‘Here in the Big Brother house there’s people who want to stab you in the back, kind of similar to the White House, so it’s ‘game on’,’ she said.
Prior to leaving the White House, Omarosa became increasingly unpopular with senior Trump aides – including Chief of Staff, John Kelly.
One of Kelly’s first orders of business was to take away Omarosa’s Oval Office ‘walk-in’ privileges in order to isolate her from the president.
She was reportedly escorted off the White House grounds on January 20.
