Professional reality show contestant and former Trump administration staffer Omarosa Manigault may have been kicked out of the White House, but her stint in the Celebrity Big Brothers house is proving just as controversial.
Manigault has made headlines already with her confessions about the behind-the-scenes nitty gritty of Trump’s White House. After breaking down in tears, she confessed her frustrations and fears about the Trump administration, saying, “It’s going to not be OK, it’s not. It’s so bad.”
This time around, Manigault is taking aim at Vice President Mike Pence with a harsh warning for Americans.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Manigault told the other contestants. “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president.”
“He’s extreme. I’m Christian. I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”
Manigault also warned the room that Trump isn’t finished attacking immigrants yet. “I’ve seen the plan,” she said, adding it will get “more aggressive.”
Pence, an evangelical Christian, is best known for his extreme anti-LGBT and anti-abortion stances. He has made it a priority to overturn every pro-LGBT step the Obama administration took and has been remarkably successful.
Manigault’s warning should be particularly heeded by the LGBT community. As we said in mid-2017, Pence is the biggest threat to the community in the Trump administration and his influence may be quiet, but he’s the true force behind Trump’s throne.
