Omarosa Manigault-Newman is switching things up politically. After her comments on Thursday night’s “Celebrity Big Brother” were teased Wednesday, Feb. 7, the full comments reveal she’s washing her hands of Donald Trump, saying she wouldn’t vote for him again “in a million years.”
“If we become friends, you’ll see how loyal I am, like maybe to a fault,” Newman said according to CBS News before discussing her relationship with Trump. “It’s just been so incredibly hard to shoulder what I shouldered for those two years because I was so loyal to a person. And I didn’t realize that by being loyal to him, it was going mean I was going to lose 100 other friends.”
In what many viewers saw as an attempt to forge an alliance, Newman later compared her relationship to Trump, who was her boss on “The Apprentice” before she joined his administration, to actress Keshia Knight Pulliam’s relationship to Bill Cosby.
“When you’re in the middle of the hurricane, it’s hard to see the destruction on the outer bands, if you understand what I’m saying,” Newman responds. “And I can say this since you’re asking me, you stood strong by somebody who you have known and have been loyal to and have known for a long time who has supported you. And people judged you for that but only you know the inner workings of your relationship with Mr. Cosby. That’s the same thing with me and Trump. It’s not something that can be minimized.”
Pulliam replied that the situations are not comparable saying, “It’s comparing apples to oranges.”
However, Newman held firm.
“But you don’t see the similarities?” she says. “You haven’t been attacked because of your relationship?”
“It’s a different situation because this man is running our country and being a voice of a whole country of people,” Pulliam replies.
However, Newman showed a major change when she admitted that Trump wouldn’t get her support if he ran again — or ever.
“God no,” she said when asked. “Never. Not in a million years, never.”
