Just when you think Omarosa Manigault-Newman has hit peak-reality TV schmaltz last week on her new gig, “Celebrity Big Brother.”
During last week’s show, the former White House aide shared a dramatic moment with fellow cast member, Ross Matthews, tearfully telling him that Americans should be worried about the Trump administration.
I’m not sure what she was getting at, as she didn’t make it clear (She’s saving that for her tell-all book), but this week was Vice President Mike Pence’s turn.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Manigault Newman said, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president.”
“He’s extreme. I’m Christian. I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” she continued.
By “Really,” I’m asking does she really consider herself a Christian.
I mean, I remember her saying before the election that all of Trump’s critics and detractors would have to bow before Trump. She called it the “ultimate revenge.”
She said all this while smiling, pleased that she would be riding that gravy train with biscuit wheels. No Christian would ascribe godlike status to any man, in the way she did.
That’s what she said then, however. When her shenanigans got her booted, she suddenly saw all of that as a bad thing.
She wasn’t done whipping up the fear factor:
Manigault Newman also warned her fellow contestants about the administration’s crackdown on illegal immigrants, saying, “I’ve seen the plan” and it gets “more aggressive.”
So when did you see the plan? Nobody knew what it was you did around the White House. It’s almost like a job was made up for you because Trump likes keeping loyalists on hand to stroke his ego, and say stupid things about people bowing to him.
I imagine that this is the reason for having her on the series, in the first place.
Each week, she’ll make some breathless, wide-eyed allusion to some fear about the Trump administration, but she’ll never clarify, so don’t watch expecting that.
She wouldn’t want to hurt her future book sales.
