The glaring downside to filling a presidential administration with reality television stars became clear this morning when a clip of former White House advisor Omarosa Manigault speaking about her time in the White House at her new job began going viral on social media.
After nearly a year at the White House where she worked doing…what, exactly, is still unclear, Manigault went back to her reality TV roots and joined Celebrity Big Brother.
During last night’s episode, Omarosa was asked about what it was like to work in the White House – and she didn’t hold back, nearly breaking down in tears as she told her harrowing tale.
When asked why she went to the White House, she said it was because she was “serving her country, not him…I was haunted by tweets every day. Like, what is he going to tweet next?” she moaned.
Her fellow contestant asked if anybody ever tried to talk some sense into Trump, to restrain him or try to convince him to tone it down. Omarosa says that she “tried” to be that person but “all the people around him attacked me. It was like, ‘keep her away from him, don’t get her access, don’t let her talk to him…And Ivanka’s there, Jared’s 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.
The final question is if we’re all going to be okay – and her answer is extremely disturbing.
