It’s not clear how many people were really anticipating former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s debut on Big Brother. Still, she made quite the splash as she didn’t waste time to spill insider secrets.
Omarosa Lets It All Out
While Manigault has insisted that she is no longer on the Donald Trump train, she is still getting the side eye for how she acted when she was on his payroll to begin with. She opened up about her time in the White House, possibly in an effort to prove that she really isn’t down with Trump anymore.
When asked if she would ever cast a vote in his favor again, Manigault said, “Never in a million years.” She told her co-stars and housemates when they asked why she ever agreed to it that she felt like it was her responsibility to serve under Trump. One co-star bluntly asked if anyone ever challenges or tries to check Trump. Manigault said she did her best. Instead, acoording to her, his people and the administration returned the favor and shut her out.
Manigault was also asked who was really in power and the state of the future of the country. She was also candid with her response.
“I don’t know. I’m not there. It’s not my circus, not my monkeys. I’d like to say not my problem but I can’t say that because, it’s bad…No it’s not gonna be okay. It’s not. So bad.”
Are Omarosa And Keshia Knight Pulliam That Different?
Manigault went on to reveal to another co-star that she lost “hundreds” of friends because of her connection to Trump for the last couple of years. Intersetingly enough, she seemingly tried to get a friend out of Keshia Knight Pulliam. She compared Pulliam’s support for disgraced actor Bill Cosby during his sexual assault trial, to her former support for Trump. Pulliam made it clear she wasn’t buying it.
She said in a confessional that she and Manigault could not be any “further from polar opposites in terms of our political views…It’s a different situation because this man is running our country and being a voice of a whole country of people.”
Manigault continued to stand by her statement in her own confessional. She said Pulliam has no right to judge her considering “the world sees how very similar those two relationships are.…”
