Omarosa Manigault Newman has never been one to shy away from controversy or telling us exactly what she believes. The well-known season 1 Apprentice contestant and former political aide to Trump has made quite a name for herself as a controversial media figure. In her 2018 book, Unhinged, she dished on the ins and outs of her experience with Trump in the White House, as well as the president’s personal life. But Trump’s legal team didn’t care for the book — in fact, they tried to prevent its publication, which, uh, didn’t work (via Daily Mail). So she is no stranger to spilling the Trump tea.
Well, Omarosa is about to make the Trump administration unhappy again. In a recent October interview on the British talk show, Lorraine, she touched on something a little more personal: Trump’s marriage to Melania, and the point-of-view she established during the 17 years she’s known the couple. She says that some of what she observed would “make your head spin” (via Daily Mail).
Omarosa says Melania is "repulsed" by Trump
It doesn’t take a man on the inside to deduce that the relationship between Trump and Melania has always appeared to be a bit prickly. Melania has been seen on several separate occasions slapping or ripping her hand away from her husband, clearly disinterested in engaging in physical touch with him (via ELLE). Omarosa’s comments on their marriage echo this body language, confessing what we all already probably knew to be true. The former aide tells Lorraine, “It’s a very strange marriage, and I’m very cautious to comment on the dynamics of people’ marriage — you never know the inner-workings — but I’ve known this couple since they were dating… What I’ve observed over the last 17 years… Sometimes they like each other and other times she’s repulsed by him” (via People). We can only imagine, Melania.
Omarosa continues, commenting on the obvious tension between the two at the most recent presidential debate, “As we saw just on the debate last Thursday, he went to go and touch her hand and she smacked it away.”
Despite her former professional relationship with Trump, Omarosa says she supports Biden now
It can’t come as too much of a surprise that Omarosa doesn’t think fondly of Trump, and he has never had nice things to say about her, either. Trump has been very publicly dismissive and rude towards Omarosa, calling her a “dog” with “zero credibility”, “wacky”, “deranged”, and a “crazy lowlife” (via ABC News).
It appears that Omarosa used to be friends with Trump during their Apprentice days. But she believes he is no longer the same person he was back then. “Donald Trump is that friend that got a new job and became something else,” she told The Hill. “The things that Donald Trump has done. The way he toys with race. The way he’s trying to incite a race war. It is not funny.” She added that he had become “a monster.”
Finally, according to People, Omarosa has no intention of voting for Trump in the upcoming election. She said on Lorraine that she believes Biden will win, and she supports his candidacy.
