Asked what drove her to join the White House ranks, Omarosa said, “I felt like it was, like, a call to duty. I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him [President Trump]. Whenever was it accepting a political appointment, it was always about the country.”
“Like I was haunted by tweets like every single day, like what is he going to tweet next?”
“Does anybody say to him ‘what are you doing?'”
“I mean, I tried to be that person and then all of the people around him attacked me,” Omarosa replied.
After attempting to advise the President on his Twitter habits, White House staffers cut her access, Omarosa told Ross.
Asked who has sway over the President’s Twitter habits, Omarosa came up blank.
“Like, It’s bad,” Omarosa warned Ross.
Clearly shaken by Omarosa’s admission, Ross asked “Should we be worried?”
“Yes,” nodded an emotional Omarosa.
“I need you to say it’s going to be okay,” pleaded Ross.
“No, it’s not going to be okay, it’s not,” Omarosa replied.
“So bad,” the former White House staffer added.
The former reality TV star stepped down as Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison on January 20th, 2018.
