Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former aide to President Trump, will appear on the new season of the reality TV show, “Celebrity Big Brother.” And liberals are furious about it.
Other members of the “Celebrity Big Brother” cast include “Cosby Show” star Keshia Knight Pulliam, “American Pie” star Shannon Elizabeth, former NBA player Metta World Peace, and retired MMA fighter Chuck Liddell. The first episode will air on February 7.
Omarosa left the White House in January amid conflicting press reports that she was fired for clashing with chief of staff John Kelly.
President Trump made Omarosa famous when she competed on his hit reality show, “The Apprentice,” in 2004. In the 1990s, Manigault worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Bill Clinton presidency.
When she left the Trump White House, President Trump thanked Manigault Newman for her service, tweeting: “Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success.”
Manigault Newman has been a polarizing figure among Trump supporters, who never fully embraced her because of oftentimes abrasive, confrontational personality. Nevertheless, during her time in the Trump administration, Omarosa was a staunch supporter of the president who trashed anyone who criticized him unfairly.
In August 2017, Manigault smacked down BET host Ed Gordon during a panel discussion at the National Association of Black Journalists conference. The argument erupted when Gordon, who was moderating the panel, repeatedly trashed President Trump and got snarky with Manigault.
Meanwhile, liberals are furious that Manigault Newman — a black woman elevated by the Trump administration — now appears to be capitalizing on her WH stint to make money.
Well, hey, where do people get the idea that they can act in ways that are what most would consider way out of bounds — even get escorted from the White House, say — and they’ll get rewarded for it with more momentary fame and payoffs? https://t.co/ALbkzDSFZw

Have you ever met a person that will do anything to be in the spotlight? #CelebrityBigBrother2018 should be ashamed. Stooping so low as to put this drama queen back on tv.

Tellingly, liberals said nothing when George Stephanopoulos, the former White House communications director under Bill Clinton, exploited his WH tenure to land lucrative hosting gigs at ABC News. Stephanopoulos recently renewed a $105 million contract with ABC News.
Similarly, liberals applauded when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her stint in her husband’s White House to increase their net worth from “dead broke” to more than $150 million.
