Omarosa says on ‘Big Brother’ country is not going to be OK


Omarosa Manigault Newman is starting to tell her story, as promised. And the former White House aide's story is: America is not going to be fine under President Donald Trump.

"No," a tearful Manigault Newman, who left the White House in December, said to "Celebrity Big Brother" co-star Ross Mathews when asked if the nation will be OK.

"It's going to not be OK. It's not. So bad," she added, speaking in the conspiratorial whisper that cast members use to keep competitors in the "Big Brother" house from overhearing them. Viewers, however, get to.

Newman had appeared on the TV show “The Apprentice” when Trump was the host. She was hired as an assistant to the president and communications director for the Office of Public Liaison.

In response, the White House reminded reporters at the daily briefing that Manigault Newman was fired repeatedly on "The Apprentice" — and once by the White House.

"Not very seriously," said spokesman Raj Shah when asked how the White House reacted to the comments.
