Omarosa Manigault — the former Apprentice star who served in President Donald Trump’s administration until she was ousted last year — has joined the cast of Celebrity Big Brother, and is dishing on life inside the White House.
Speaking with TV personality Ross Mathews, Omarosa presented a terrifying view of the Trump administration and its Twitter-happy commander-in-chief.
When asked by Mathews why she joined Trump in the White House, Omarosa explained that she “felt like it was a call to duty.”
“I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” Omarosa said. “Whenever was it accepting a political appointment, it was always about the country.”
“I was haunted by tweets every single day,” she continued. “Like, what is he going to tweet next.”
Omarosa, who served in the White House as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, added that when she tried to intervene “all the people around him attacked me.”
“It was like, keep her away, don’t give her access, don’t let her talk to him,” Omarosa continued, through tears. “Ivanka’s there, Jared’s there.”
The former reality star was ousted from the White House after John Kelly was appointed chief of staff, in what was reported to be a messy firing.
When a helpless Mathews asked Omarosa who in the White House could temper Trump and save the country, she looked down and replied “I don’t know.”
“It’s not my circus, not my monkeys,” she added. “I’d like to say not my problem, but I can’t say that. Because it’s bad.”
“Should we be worried?” Mathews asked, and Omarosa nodded.
“It’s not going to be OK,” she said. “It’s not.”
