President Trump’s “adviser” Omarosa Manigualt was supposed to be the guest on Monday’s The Daily Show but she cancelled at the last minute.
“Today we were supposed to be joined by Senior Trump Adviser Omarosa, who, of course, was here to promote her episode of ‘Say Yes To The Dress,’” Noah said. “That is true, by the way. But at the last minute she bailed on us. And the reason she gave — and this is true again — is that the administration did not want her interview on The Daily Show to eclipse the news of the day.”
Noah added he didn’t really understand that reasoning because the “news of the day” included FBI director James Comey confirming that Trump’s tweets about Barack Obama wiretapping him were false, and that the FBI is indeed investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
“That’s right people: Obama didn’t wiretap Trump, and even the FBI thinks there’s something at least worth investigating regarding how much Trump’s campaign communicated with Russia,” said Noah. “Wow, I did not see that coming. Is there, like, a thing for ‘reverse mind-blown’?”
Omarosa got engaged to Florida pastor John Allen Newman in July.
The below promo for her March 25 episode of “Say Yes to the Dress” appeared in January.
