Omarosa Manigault-Newman, reality TV personality and former political aide, has been spilling the beans several times on her experience in the White House and under the Trump Administration. From the moment she stepped into the Celebrity Big Brother house, her castmates began asking about President Donald Trump, working with him over the years and her time in the White House.
On the Saturday, February 24 episode, Omarosa reflected on resigning from the administration.
“Oh, freedom. I’ve been emancipated,” she said of the happiness she felt after leaving. “I feel like I just got freed off a plantation.”
Omarosa told her castmates about her time riding on Air Force One during the Wednesday, February 21 episode. She told her fellow houseguests that you have to pay for food on board.
“There’s no free ride in the government … I got a bill and it was like, $23 dollars, and I was like, ‘I didn’t even eat anything.’ So I called the military aid. I was like, ‘Why am I getting a bill?’ He’s like, ‘Well if you even consume the snacks, you get a flat fee.’”
The former Apprentice star told her houseguests that Vice President Mike Pence is far worse than Trump on the Monday, February 12 episode.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence.”
She later added, “Everybody’s that wishing for impeachment, might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president … He’s extreme. I’m a Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things … It’s scary.”
During the Thursday, February 8 episode, castmate Ross Mathews asked Omarosa about her time in the White House.
“I felt like it was like a call for duty, I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him … Whenever I was accepting a political appointment, it was always about the country.”
She said she was “haunted by tweets every single day” and said no one could step in and help control the situation.
“I tried to be that person and then all of the people around him attacked me. It was like, ‘Keep her away. Don’t give her access. Don’t let her talk to him,’” she said, beginning to cry. “It’s not my circus, not my monkeys. I’d like to say it’s not my problem, but I can’t say that because it’s bad.”
When Mathews told her he needed reassurance that everything was going to be O.K., she said solemnly, “It’s gonna not be OK. It’s not. It’s so bad.” When asked if she’d vote for him again, she responded, “God, no. Never. Not in a million years, never.”
