The White House on Thursday took a shot at former administration official Omarosa Manigault Newman after her comments on the CBS show Celebrity Big Brother.
Omarosa is starting to tell her story, as promised. And the former White House aide’s story is: America is not going to be fine under President Donald Trump.
Manigault said she was “haunted” by President Donald Trump’s tweets “every single day” and said the country is “going to not be OK.”
White House deputy press secretary, Raj Shah, said during the daily press briefing that the administration took the remarks “not very seriously.”
“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this is the fourth time we let her go,” Shah told reporters. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
Manigault was actually fired twice from ‘The Apprentice, NBC show.
Her comments to a fellow cast member on the CBS reality show caught attention Thursday.
“I felt like it was a call to duty,” she said. “I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him. … It was always about the country. Like, I was haunted by tweets every single day. Like what is he going to tweet next?”
Manigault said she “tried” to help keep Trump in check, only to be “attacked” by other aides.
“It was like, keep her away from him,” she said. “Don’t give her access. Don’t let her talk to him.”
“I like to say it’s not my problem, but I can’t say that, because it’s bad,” she added. “It’s going to not be OK. It’s not.”
As reported, In December, Omarosa told “Good Morning America” that she had “quite a story to tell. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear,” she said.
