Omarosa spilled more White House tea on Celebrity Big Brother when she warned the mostly liberal houseguests that they would not like it if Vice President Mike Pence were to become president.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Omarosa said. “So everyone wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives.”
When pressed by the other houseguests, Omarosa reiterated, “We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president — that’s all I’m saying. He is extreme.”
Omarosa claims that Pence is so deeply religious that it is disconcerting. She said, “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things that are like … And I’m like, Jesus didn’t say that. Scary.”
Considering Omarosa’s reputation as a reality heavy, what she has to say should be taken with a grain of salt. Which is exactly what Mark McGrath did.
“You always have to remember, this is Omarosa, a world-class reality TV villain,” McGrath said. “And is it true? Is it game? Is it her story? Is it the real story? It’s Omarosa’s world and I’m just living it.”
In the initial month’s of Trump’s presidency, Omarosa was reportedly among his staff of trusted advisors. She was once a three-time contestant on various iterations of NBC’s The Apprentice, the reality TV show formerly hosted by the president. But the arrival of current White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, which led to something of a staff shakeup in several corners of the White House, also reportedly sped Omarosa’s own departure from government employment. She left the White House in a reportedly tumultuous removal in December.
Last week, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah responded to questions about Omarosa in a press conference. “Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice and this was the fourth time we let her go,” Shah said in reference to her dismissal three months ago. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
