Omarosa says she wouldn’t vote for Trump again ‘in a million years’


Former Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman continues to comment on the Donald Trump presidency while in the “Celebrity Big Brother” house.

She previously made headlines for saying the country wasn’t going to be OK after talking about her time in the White House with contestant Ross Matthews. 

CBS News reported that Manigault Newman said she would never vote for Trump again in the Thursday episode of the reality TV show.

Speaking with fellow celebrity contestant Keshia Knight Pulliam, Manigault Newman compared her relationship with Trump to Pulliam’s relationship with Bill Cosby. Pulliam starred as the youngest Huxtable on “The Cosby Show” from ages 5-13.

Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by more than 50 women. The accusations span decades.

Pulliam asked Manigault Newman about what she said was hate spurred by the campaign.

“When you’re in the middle of a hurricane, it’s hard to see the destruction on the outer bands,” Manigault Newman said.

“Since you’re asking me, you stood strong by somebody who you have known and have been loyal to and have known for a long time and who has supported you, and people judged you for that,” Manigault Newman told Pulliam, according to Us Weekly. “But only you know the inner workings of your relationship with Mr. Cosby. That’s the same thing with me and Mr. Trump.”

Pulliam pushed back on Manigault Newman’s remarks. 

“It’s comparing apples to oranges,” she said. “It’s a different situation because this man (Trump) is running the country and being the voice of a whole country of people.”

The reality star turned White House official turned reality star said on the show that she would not vote for Trump again “in a million years, never.”

“If we become friends, you’ll see how loyal I am, like maybe to a fault,” Newman told Pulliam.

“It’s just been so incredibly hard to shoulder what I shouldered for those two years because I was so loyal to a person,” she said. “And I didn't realize that by being loyal to him, it was going mean I was going to lose 100 other friends.”

Later in the show, when speaking to Matthews, Manigault Newman said that working in the White House was “100 percent” worse than being on reality TV.

“I made choices, I just have to live with them,” she said.
