Omarosa: 'I Was Haunted by Tweets Every Single Day'

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the Apprentice star turned White House aide, dished on her time in the Trump administration and her former boss' penchant for Twitter. "I was haunted by tweets every single day, like what is he going to tweet next?" a tearful Manigault-Newman said in the teaser clip for Thursday's episode of Celebrity Big Brother, the reality show on which she is a contestant. Manigault-Newman claimed that when she attempted to reason with President Donald Trump about some of his tweets, she was "attacked" and denied access by "all of the people around him," including Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and daughter Ivanka Trump.

Recall that immediately after the election Omarosa talked about an enemies list. "It's so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get into the White House, we know where we stand," Omarosa told the Independent Journal Review at Trump's election night party in New York City.

Just hurry up and write your book already. You're missing out on the Wolfe train.

Go sit the corner and eat your worms.

Sorry, But I would rather have a jerk in office than a nice guy. Nice guys get washed away like yesterday's children's chalk marks on your sidewalk in Washington. I do not like the damn Yankee, but the idea of him being "managed" is to me a little silly. If his subordinates fear him, so much the better.

Ruling by Fear rarely ends well.

And apparently you have to eat the crap at random McDonald's just to keep from getting poisoned to death.

It depends on what is feared. The best organizations I have seen have a fear of failure. The best organizations I have seen have a black hat paired with a white hat at the top of the organization. The black hat in the battalion is usually worn by the Sargent Major. The crazier the better. It keeps subordinates on their toes. The real power is still the commander, he can refer charges and take rank. But the SMG can raise serious hell.
BTW, I haven't ate any McDonald's in more than a decade

My wife watches the show. Her job title was listed as "Professional Reality Show Villain".

Good cop, bad cop.

The best organizations I have seen don't have an adversarial relationship between the ranks.

So she was fired like a month ago and is already on another reality show? This woman has serious problems.

Oh please.

She is a reality show contestant who apparently likes publicity. Why? I haven't a clue.

She should not have been in the White House. I cringed when I saw her at the table with our President.

I continue to cringe as she goes back to her reality TV roots.

Omarosa is Trump's creation. She's a reality TV star's reality TV star, and as such, she was the perfect addition to his WH. Sad to say, but Omarosa was as qualified (and had as much credibility) to be there as Trump does. Trump ran on not being a politician. He pretended to be a successful businessman, but in reality he was nothing more than a con artist and a well paid reality TV star. And that's where we are folks. The emperor has no clothes, as some of us always knew he didn't.

"She should not have been in the White House. I cringed when I saw her at the table with our President."

But did you cringe at the sight of the man, our President, who saw fit to create a special position just for her and put her there? As I see it, the fault lies with him more than with her. And, yes, I think she is a disingenuous idiot.

CBS paid her a million dollars to be on the show.

The funny thing about that story is that after the kid speaks the truth, everyone around him suddenly has the courage to see the truth as well. In reality, the crowd would have told that kid to shut the hell up. Possibly he would have been assaulted or arrested.

She's a character actor with a masters in communications that worked in the EEOB for Al Gore.

Why would she not take a million dollar payday for 1 months work?

#10 | Posted by GalaxiePete, been there and done that, how about yourself? All good leadership has both a carrot and a stick. The hard, dark part of leadership is punishing bad behavior. Failure to do so is to punish those who do their job and preform well. But I doubt you have had to get bad actors kicked out of the military. I have had to numerous times. Drug addicts, drunks, thieves, the mentally ill, violent and sociopaths- the army is not a refuge for the non functioning. Definitely not a place for the destructive and antisocial.

Reality show character is kind of a ridiculous career, but it's not the worst thing ever. She just was hospitalized by an errant bowling from a dizzy, tony award winning, Broadway musical star.
