Omarosa Manigault appeared on The View Friday morning, where things got testy.
Manigault fielded many questions from The View co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Jedidiah Bila and guest co-host Gretchen Carlson Friday. As President Donald Trump's Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, Manigault praised her boss throughout the segment.
"You all know him as the president, I know him as a friend," Manigault said, when the co-hosts listed some of President Trump's most controversial moments. "I know his heart, I know the things he's seen that've never been reported on and probably folks will never talk about."
Behar asked if that meant Americans shouldn't listen to what President Trump has to say, Manigault got defensive.
"I'm talking about my experience, Joy. You can listen to what you want," she replied. "You have decided to continue to hit him and hit him and hit him and not even give him a chance on his first week."
Manigault previously worked on Trump's campaign as the Director of African-American Outreach, and with only six percent of black women having voting for Trump in the election, Hostin asked if he was using her for optics.
"First of all, no one uses me," Manigault responded, and went to explain that she is a human American first and foremost.
Behar also asked Manigault about President Trump's diverting focus when it comes to possible voter fraud and the idea of crowd size.
"I think that there's a time of adjustment," Manigault responded. "He's not a politician he's never held office and he's moving from private sector to governing, and it takes an adjustment time. I think in the first five days he's done a spectacular job of dealing with the most important, high pressure job in the world and so we have to give him time to make that shift and I believe that you will see that this president is going to be incredible for this country, and I am excited about what's happening with this administration and I'm very honored to be a part of it."
Manigault gave a special shoutout to her fiancé, who was in The View audience, and said she was truly joyful about her relationship before throwing in a dig at Behar: "I hope you one day you can find that kind of joy, Joy." The audience booed Manigault as the segment concluded.
