My favorite news story this week has been watching former “Apprentice” contestant and ex-White House employee Omarosa Manigault Newman completely melt down on “Celebrity Big Brother.”
Omarosa, who was reportedly dragged out of the White House upon her firing last year, is now peddling a sob story to her fellow cast mates on the CBS reality show about her brief stint in Washington DC.
Here’s a clip of Omarosa back in September 2016, in which she says anyone who’s ever criticized Trump will have to kiss the ring, so to speak, once he becomes president.
“Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump,” she said in a PBS interview. “It’s everyone who has ever doubted Donald. Whoever disagreed, whoever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge, to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
She loved Trump when he made her relevant, but now that he has cast her out she is playing the victim. Give me a minute to find my tiny violin.
Omarosa had the nerve to tell “The Cosby Show” star Keshia Knight Pulliam that her decision to stand by Bill Cosby during his trial was just like Omarosa’s own decision to flack for Trump on the campaign trail and during his time in the Oval Office. Yes. She really said that. Watch Pulliam’s stunned silence in response to this insane comparison in the video below.
She also told another cast mate that she was “haunted” by Trump’s tweets. She also said that “it’s not going to be okay.”
Omarosa on Big Brother:
"I was haunted by tweets every single day. Like, what is he going to tweet next?”
Q: Should we be worried?
*Nods* "It's going to not be ok. It's not." https://t.co/qboTFfYiTy

She’s long played the victim on TV to gin up attention. Here is some footage from the first season of “The Apprentice” in 2004, in which she acts like her teammates are after her whenever they don’t like her ideas.
This is her schtick. She’s been playing this game for more than a decade. Except no one is falling for it this time.
The White House responded Thursday with a blistering response.
“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice.’ This is the fourth time we let her go,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said during a presser. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
