Omarosa: 'We would be begging for the days of Trump if Pence became president'CLOSE
Omarosa Manigault-Newman revealed on Celebrity Big Brother, Vice President Mike Pence thinks "Jesus tells him to say things." Nathan Rousseau Smith has the story.
Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman has a warning for Trump haters longing for an impeachment: Be careful what you wish for. You could end up with Mike Pence, whom she describes as "scary" and "extreme."
"As bad as yâall think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence," she told her housemates on CBS' Big Brother: Celebrity Edition. "Everybody that's wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. We w ould be begging for days of Trump if Pence became president, thatâs all Iâm saying. Heâs extreme."
Laughing, the minister's wife added, "I'm Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. I'm like, 'Jesus didn't say that.' "
Omarosa, who departed the White House's Office of Public Liaison last month, also broke down the recent government shutdown and the immigration fight that caused it (all while wearing a strapless flamenco-inspired evening gown and heels, for reasons passing our understanding).
"The DACA piece came as a result of (Trump) wanting his wall," Omarosa said. "Barack Obama's administration said, 'If you sign up, and basically out yourself â" that you're here illegally â" we'll protect you.' All these people signed up â" outed themselves, their families, people that were in hiding. Then Donald Trump got in and that was his little e xecutive order."
She added, "The crackdowns are happening, they're aggressive and they're intentional and they're gonna get worse. But don't get me wrong â" the Obama administration was aggressive about deportation, too. But nobody talks about it."
When cast member Marissa Jaret Winokur asked Omarosa to reassure her that everything is going to be OK, she wouldn't. "The roundup plan is getting more and more aggressive."
Last week, she told her housemates they should be worried about White House dysfunction: "It's bad," she said tearfully. "It's not going to be OK. It's not."

This time, her tales of palace intrigue were met with jaw drops from housemates Ross Matthews, who says he half-expects to see a breaking news chyron every time she opens her mouth; and an eye roll f rom Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath, who claims that Omarosa sets off his "fake news" alarm.
"You always have to remember: This is Omarosa, a world-class reality-TV villain," he said later in his confessional. "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 in it."Omarosa Manigault Newman through the years Fullscreen
