Omarosa Manigault Newman‘s visit with Stephen Colbert couldn’t have been timed better!
Following her headline-making stint on Celebrity Big Brother, the 44-year-old reality TV vet stopped by The Late Show to spill about Donald Trump‘s administration. This visit was filled with ALL KINDS OF TEA, as Omarosa talked about Hope Hicks‘ resignation and her thoughts about the Trumpster’s presidency.
As you likely saw, Hicks recently admitted to a House panel that she’s told a white lie or two on behalf of POTUS. Thus, since Manigault Newman worked closely with Hope, Colbert inquired about the admitted “white lies.” In response, The Apprentice alum shared:
“I suspect the first one would be about crowd size but I don’t want to go into it. I got to see the inauguration of Clinton, of Bush, of Obama and when we got to the Trump inauguration they said this is the largest crowd size. I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Man I’ve been to a lot of inaugurations, this wasn’t the biggest.’ I didn’t want to be the one to break it to him. I didn’t want to be that person.”
Fair enough. Despite warning her CBB peers that the country is “not going to be okay” under 45, Omarosa remained pretty loyal to Donnie during her TV interview. She continued:
“Look Donald Trump was my friend for 15 years. He was my friend and watching him in this position has caused me to be excited sometimes and sometimes be very, very concerned… I think if you woke up and your best friend was president tomorrow you’d have that same range of emotions.”
Yeah, we’re “very, very concerned” too. Thankfully, Omarosa didn’t hold back as she went on to explain why she compared leaving the White House to being “freed off the plantation.” Apparently, the Ohio native felt she wasn’t “allowed to do the job [she was] brought to do.”
