It’s high time for Omarosa Manigault-Newman to hand over her Black card, comedienne Sherri Shepherd says.
Manigault-Newman has become less-than a friend to President Donald Trump in recent weeks after dropping several bombshell claims amid the release of her new book, called “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.” On Tuesday, she released a recording, the second of many to come, of consultant Katrina Pierson and another White House staffer discussing Trump’s alleged use of the n-word.
Her feud with the president came to a head Tuesday when he called her a “dog” in a fiery Twitter rant.
Though the former “Apprentice” star seemingly has tapes to back up the damning claims made in her book, many in the Black community still want no parts of her. For Shephard, Manigault-Newman has reached the point of no return.
“Omarosa, she’s like in that no man’s land … she’s been let go by Trump and Black people don’t want her,” the actress told TMZ. “Maybe she can go be First Lady of her church since she sold her soul.”
The comedienne, who once co-hosted “The View,” accused Manigault-Newman of trying to “lead Black folks to the slaughterhouse in the name of Trump.” She said she believes the ousted aide could be the one to take the president down, however.
“But Black people still aren’t going to take her back!” Shepherd added. “ … You tried to sell us (Black people) out for money, you tried to make us drink the Kool-aid. You bowed down to [Trump], you sold your soul for money, for fame, for power and relevance. And when you sell your soul, these are the consequences.”
