Omarosa Manigault Newman is starting to tell her story, as promised. And her story is that America is not going to be OK under President Donald Trump.

“No,” a tearful Manigault Newman, who left her White House job in December, tells her co-star, Ross Mathews, on a clip teasing “Celebrity Big Brother” when he asks if the country will be OK. “It’s going to not be OK.” She adds, in a whisper: “It’s so bad.”

The show shared the clip on Twitter. It premieres at 8 p.m. EST Thursday on CBS.

In response, the White House reminded reporters at the daily briefing that Manigault Newman was fired three times on “The Apprentice” — and once by the White House.

“Not very seriously,” said spokesman Raj Shah, when asked about the White House reaction to the comments. “Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice.’ And this was the fourth time we let her go. She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”

In the clip, Manigault Newman says she was “haunted by tweets every single day,” and wondered, “what is he going to tweet next?” She says she wanted to stop him, but “all the people around him attacked me,” blocking her access.

Mathews then asks who does have the power to influence the president. “It’s not my circus, not my monkeys,” replies Manigault Newman. “I’d like to say not my problem, but I can’t say that because it’s bad.”

Manigault Newman was an assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison until she left in December.

Earlier in the clip, Mathews tells her that he “never got” why she joined the White House.

“It was a call to duty,” she says. “I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him … it was always about the country.”

Manigault Newman told “Good Morning America” in December that she had “quite a story to tell.”

“And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear,” she said.

    Wow, she is a good actress!!! However, T you hit the nail on the head! Not to disagree with the state of the country, because with him as the leader, we are in trouble. I don’t believe she has anything significant to tell though. I do believe that she is good at keeping herself in the limelight, continually finding things to bring attention to herself with the hopes of landing that next big pay out. I liken her to the Kardashians, they know how to get the attention and find the money and here she is doing the same.

    The world wasn’t in trouble when you had an office in the white house (probably on your knees under the oval desk) with a six figure salary. Now the racist have used you up and kicked your stupid black ass to the curb “The world is in trouble”…GTFOH!! Opportunist attention whore who helped this racist monster get elected I wouldn’t trust anything that comes out of her mouth.

    • Phonyrosa has zero creditability for most Americans. The problem is, she very well may have some insider knowledge, I’m sure very limited tho, that may be of interest to someone, but since she pissed off a lot of folks, no one can believe anything she says. Big Brother is just using her for info, once they get all they can from her, they will kick her off and laugh at her stupidity. Her being on the show is actually brilliant on their part, because people are waiting for her to say something they can use. People will tune in and as you can see, this episode has not even aired yet and it was on my local news this morning. Smh.

  3. She’s an attention seeker. She sure knows how to play everyone. Ain’t no story to tell. She is a vindictive and scorned woman, The story to tell is that she got use and was no longer needed in the White House
