Stephen Colbert is not impressed by former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s dramatic comments on reality television about the difficult period she spent on Pennsylvania Avenue.
In a Late Show segment on Thursday, the host took jabs at footage of the former Apprentice winner’s comments about Trump and the White House on the first episode of the inaugural American season of Celebrity Big Brother, which premiered Thursday. “I was haunted by tweets every single day, like what is he going to tweet next?” she whispered to roommate and TV personality Ross Mathews of Trump in the scene.
“Oh, really, you were haunted? Out here it’s been the Trumpityville Horror,” Colbert joked. “Also, Omarosa, pro tip: When you’re on a reality show, whispering doesn’t really work. Trump can still hear you.”
In another scene in the clip, Matthews asks Manigault-Newman, “Should we be worried?” and she nods. “Don’t say that,” he responds, “because we are worried, but I need you to say, ‘No, it’s going to be OK.'”
“OK. No, it’s not going to be OK. It’s not,” Manigault-Newman replies.
“I believe you. I had no inkling it wasn’t going to be OK when Trump hired Omarosa to work in the White House,” Colbert joked. “That is some depressing stuff for advertisers to follow. ‘No, we’re not going to be OK,’ brought to you by new Fruitburst Xanax, it’s like novocaine for your brain!”
