Former Trump employee Omarosa Manigault-Newman went from the White House to the “Big Brother” reality TV show, which probably wasn’t a very jarring transition. I’ve never watched the stupid “Apprentice” shows, so I’d never heard of Manigault-Newman before the campaign. Her “Kneel before Zod” statement after the election convinced me that she’s a kook.
‘Shut the f**k up, a**hole,’ snarled Omarosa Manigault-Newman at me. ‘How are your kids going to feel when they wake up and discover their dad’s a f**king f*gg*t?’
Yes, this is the same Omarosa Manigault-Newman who just spent a year inside Donald Trump’s White House.
I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen.
But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work.
Which beggars the question: what the hell was she doing inside the world’s most powerful building for 12 months?
No, it really doesn’t “beggar” the question, since the answer is so goddamned obvious: Trump is a scumbag, so of course he hires fellow scumbags to round out his scumbag administration. More dish from Morgan on Manigault-Newman:
Omarosa sidled up to me at the New York Mercantile Exchange and said, quite seriously: ‘Piers, do you want a showmance?’ ‘A what?’ I replied. ‘A showmance. You know, a romance on the show – we get it on together. Happens all the time on Apprentice. Everyone has sex together. Then we can make lots of money out of it.’ I stared at her grasping, ferociously ambitious little eyes, and laughed: ‘You must be joking, you deluded woman.’ She didn’t take it well. ‘What are you? Gay?’
From that moment, she turned on me like a viper.
I can honestly say I’ve never been spoken to in my life like the disgusting, foul-mouthed, homophobic way Omarosa spat at me throughout the weeks of filming.
Because I’d rejected her revolting sex plot, she decided the best line of attack was to repeatedly question my sexuality in the most crude and offensive manner imaginable.
Wow. She sure sounds like an asshole, but everyone in Trump’s orbit is, and that includes Morgan. I look forward to more amusing public feuds between Trump hangers-on in the very near future. It’s about the only upside from this endless nightmare. Open thread!
