White House takes dig at Omarosa after she makes negative Trump comments

Now we've heard it from an insider: There's plenty of reason to be anxious about the country under Donald Trump, says Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former Apprentice star and lately a White House aide, now appearing on Big Brother Celebrity Edition.

When housemate and TV personality Ross Matthews asked Newman why she took the White House director of communications role, she reasoned it was for the country - not for her former "The Apprentice" boss.

This conversation caught the attention of White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah. "She had limited contact with the president while here, and she has no contact now".

But nearly everything Manigault has done on Big Brother outside that moment with Matthews - which, again, he got as much out of as she did - tells a very different story.

"If we become friends, you'll see how loyal I am, like maybe to a fault", Newman said.

During the daily press briefing Thursday, The White House dismissed Manigault Newman's comments, which were released in advance of the episode. "It was like, 'Keep her away, don't give her access, don't let her talk to him". "I'd like to say it's not my problem but I can't say that because, like, it's bad." .

"No, it's not gonna be okay", Omarosa said.

Understandable, considering Hamlin failed to make a podium in either of the two World Cup seasons leading up to the Sochi Games. This year, a rare situation ensued when Hamlin and Davis tied in a vote of 4-4, causing plan B - a coin toss - to take place.

Somehow, all of this isn't the only dirt Manigault has kicked up in her few days in the Big Brother house.

Newman, a former contestant on Trump's NBC show "The Apprentice", also did not mince words about the president's social media habit.

While Omarosa appears to be emotional and connecting with her co-stars on Big Brother: Celebrity Edition, it all seems to be a part of her social strategy for the reality competition show. "She has no contact now", Shah added.

The photo, which honestly looks like a scene from a low-budget action movie, shows five former Trump aides, all of whom are no longer employed by the White House.

Mathews had asked Manigault-Newman, 44, for reassurance about where the country is headed.

Newman said it was hard for her to separate her long-term loyalty to Trump when she worked for him at the White House, which cost her many friends.

The source also stated that Newman was escorted out of the West Wing of the White House. We soon got confirmation about which two of the 11 houseguests are facing elimination and which one is likeliest to get the boot on Friday's show.
