Former Trump staffer Omarosa claims 'we would be begging' for Trump back if Mike Pence became president

#

Reality TV star and former White House staffer Omarosa Newman warned her fellow contestants on “Celebrity Big Brother” that there is more to fear from the prospect of a President Mike Pence than President Donald Trump on Monday night's episode.

“We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president,” she said.

Newman cited Pence’s religious convictions as cause for concern.

“He’s extreme,” she said. “I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”

Newman didn't shy away from expressing her opinions on other government issues either, including criticism of the Trump administration’s handling of illegal immigration.

“The crackdowns are happening, and they’re aggressive, and they’re intentional and they’re going to get worse,” she said. “But don’t get me wrong, the Obama administration was aggressive about deportation, too.”

A clip of Newman gained attention Thursday evening when she said on the CBS reality show that she would not vote for Trump again “in a million years,” and told a fellow contestant that “It’s going to be not OK.” She reaffirmed this sentiment to another housemate on Monday’s episode: “No, we’re not OK.”

Newman, who appeared on Trump’s NBC reality shows “The Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice,” said she resigned as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in December. White House sources, on the other hand, told ABC News she was fired and escorted off White House grounds.

    I can't imagine agreeing with her. But I think she's right.

  • msbettyrubble

    Omarosa? Really ABC? The credibility of the person IS a valid reason for NOT listening to her "thoughts".

  • OscarBravoUSA

    "[Pence] thinks Jesus tells him to say things.” Well, that explains the question joke, "Why is it, when I talk to God, I'm praying - but when God talks to me, I'm schizophrenic?"

  • Sejal

    I haven't heard anything about Trump tweeting his reactions to this.

  • Jeff Dwyer

    I'm sure she's right about Pence. America needs to get rid of that whole band of thugs, and not vote for Republicans until they get rid of the criminals and evangelical nutballs. America, take back your country!

  • Pizza!

    I believe her.

  • Pro-Marx

    Why would anybody care what a "Reality TV Star" has to say about anything?
    And that also applies to Omarosa.

  • Carlotta Monterey

    Bye Felicia.

  • Resurrected Smile

    A black woman who voted for Trump? How stupid can you get?

  • Solanum

    Can she just go away?

  • bil

    Does anyone care what she thinks or says...yawn

  • Eric

    I don't think so. Even though Pence is an idiot - Trump is much more of one.

  • MAGreenA

    Omarosa-I think you should really tell us the whole story of your experiences. The more truth the American public knows the better we can try and fight these power mongers. If Pence thinks God speaks through him that is really scary and maybe he is as crazy as Trump.

  • drathvedar

    New rule: When the president gets removed from office, the VP goes too!

  • Bill William

    She is right about Pence.

  • ben

    Of course anything said that is not positive about Trump is true and anything flattering is patently false.
    That is how objective the media is! HaHA

  • Paul Iannello

    the guy's clearly not workin with a full deck...she's right...and i ain't no trumpet...

  • Laney D.

    I can't imagine under any circumstances begging for Trump.

  • THEFred

    We don't really need the opinions of a clueless two-faced former reality TV participant and Trump supporter.

    Yes, Pence is a corrupt, delusional, malevolent, chronically-lying hypocritical nutjob. But we already knew that back when she was voluntarily working for the same corrupt administration. If she hadn't been fired, she'd still be promoting Trump AND Pence now.

    But to say that we would ever be begging for Trump back is as insane and untrue as anything Pence has ever said. It's like saying we'll miss the bubonic plague, or what we've flushed down the toilet. No one is really going to miss worrying about whether Trump will start a nuclear holocaust at 3 a.m. because of a petty childish tantrum.

  • Freedom of speech rider

    The whole lot of them are loons.

    Do I get red tagged for saying that?

  • Sandi Gonzalez

    Omarosa needs to shut her mouth and stop looking for attention.
    Nobody believes or cares about her. Just looking like a damn fool AGAIN.

  • Lee Thompson

    Be gone, Omarosa. You are irrelevant.

  • will Russell

    She makes Ivanka Trump look intelligent. Exactly why doesn't anyone care about what she says? On the other hand, expect her back at the White House soon.

  • Citizen Kane

    This opportunist (like the others in current WH) took $180,000 of US taxpayer money to do NOTHING for a year.

  • Rodney Bayburn

    She’s right unfortunately. Pence is clearly nuts. Anyone who can’t be in the presence of another woman without his wife around has some serious snakes running around his head. I don’t want him anywhere near that nuclear football!

  • Richard

    Omarosa is a self serving reality TV personality. She is over dramatic and seeking the limelight and does not carry much weight with me. Get a life.

  • bilahn

    She seems like a dim bulb, yet everything she says about the White House seems very plausible.

  • Enki

    You voted for him, and defended trump. Now deal with it.

  • Top shelf

    How did this idiotic woman ever get to such an influential government position?

  • L542

    Scary thing....she's right.

  • gtblazers

    Leave it to the Huff Post to use Omarosa as a knowledgable source.

  • I AM INSPIRED

    When you talk to God, its called 'prayer'. When God talks to you (and you tell other people), you need a strait-jacket.

  • jw619

    She says pence believes jesus talks to him

  • mclnnova

    Kelly will be next to get voted off the island. Eventually they'll run out of food and eat Sarah Huckabee. They can smoke her, salt her, and that heifer will provide enough bison jerky to last half a dozen winters.

  • Guest

    Her 15 minutes were up long ago. Goobye!

  • Dr. Gurnicus Blanstonius

    Fabulous we've voted to have our government and White House turned into a reality TV show circus. Well done, America.
