The word “insider,” apparently, is an understatement in the case of Omarosa Manigault, the former Apprentice contestant who went on to work in Trump’s White House as a liaison and an adviser. No one, it seems, was more privy to the outbursts and controversy in the tumultuous administration than the woman Trump elevated to a White House position, despite not having been the winner of his reality show.
But after she left the White House — and it’s still not clear to this day whether she resigned or was fired — all bets were off about whether she would leave Trump’s presidential skeletons buried or not. She seems to have chosen the latter.
In an appearance on the show she’s currently featured in, Celebrity Big Brother, Omarosa claimed that not only was she shocked and horrified on a daily basis by what she saw — or rather, what she didn’t know whether to expect out of Donald Trump — but that Trump was nowhere near the worst of her experiences in the West Wing.
In one segment from the new reality show, Manigault is seated and talking with Ross Matthews (who, full disclosure, I adore because he’s from my town) and Mark McGrath, who you might remember from his days with the Official Band of Bros Everywhere™ Sugar Ray. Omarosa tells the two that impeaching Trump may not be all it’s cracked up to be since what’s waiting in the wings may be worse:
“As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence.”
That’s right. The “nastiest woman on television” says that the Vice President would be even worse for the country than the p*ssy-grabbing con artist who holds the office of president right now.
“He’s extreme. I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things there. I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ Scary.”
And it’s true: the vast majority of Americans consider themselves Christians, but most people definitely don’t walk around saying that God told them to do things. That’s, like… What the terrorists say, isn’t it? On top of that, Trump himself is, shall we say, “new” to Christianity — you just KNOW he’s baffled by it.
