Omarosa Manigault-Newman has been dropping comments about the state of the White House during her stint on “Celebrity Big Brother.”
On Monday’s episode, Manigault-Newman told her fellow houseguests that people should be more afraid of Vice President Mike Pence than President Donald Trump.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Manigault-Newman says. “Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for days of Trump if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying. He’s extreme.”
She added, “I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.'”
Manigault-Newman also commented on the White House’s plans for DACA.
“The DACA piece came as a result of (Trump) wanting his wall,” Manigault-Newman says. “Barack Obama’s administration said, ‘If you sign up, and basically out yourself — that you’re here illegally — we’ll protect you.’ All these people signed up — outed themselves, their families, people that were in hiding. Then Donald Trump got in and that was his little executive order. The crackdowns are happening, they’re aggressive and they’re intentional and they’re gonna get worse. But don’t get me wrong — the Obama administration was aggressive about deportation, too. But nobody talks about it.”
She also claims that the “roundup plan is getting more and more aggressive.”
Whether her comments are truthful are up for debate. Contestant Mark McGrath noted that he’s not sure if Manigault-Newman is speaking facts or game.
“You always have to remember, this is Omarosa, a world-class reality-TV villain,” McGrath says in his one-on-one interview. “Is it true? Is it game? Is it her story? Is it the real story? It’s Omarosa’s world, and I’m just livin’ in it.”
