(CNSNews.com) - Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who left the White House in December, is now competing on the CBS reality show “Celebrity Big Brother.”

During an appearance on the show, when asked by her housemate Ross Mathews whether the country will be okay, Manigault Newman said, “No. It’s going to not be okay. It’s not. So bad.”

She said she was “haunted by tweets every single day,” wondering what President Donald Trump was going to tweet next. She said she wanted to stop him from tweeting, but “all the people around him attacked me” and blocked her access.

When asked about Manigualt Newman’s comments at the White House briefing on Thursday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said he doesn’t take her comments very seriously.

“Omarosa was fired three times on the ‘Apprentice’ and this was the fourth time we let her go. She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now,” Shah said.
