Omarosa warns of ‘scary’ Mike Pence, immigration ‘roundup plan’ during ‘Big Brother’

    Omarosa Manigault-Newman, left, and Shannon Elizabeth compete during Monday’s episode of “Big Brother” on CBS. Manigault-Newman, the former Office of Public Liaison communications director, didn’t quite alleviate the fears of her housemates during the episode when she regaled the group of tales from the White House.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman returned to the “Big Brother” house with more warnings.

Manigault-Newman, the former Office of Public Liaison communications director, didn’t quite alleviate the fears of her housemates during Monday’s episode when she regaled the group of tales from the White House.

“As bad as Trump is, you’d be worried about Pence,” she said to a group, including E! correspondent Ross Mathews and Marissa Jaret Winokur, the star of Broadway’s “Hairspray.”

“We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president. I’m Christian. I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus is telling him to say things. I’m like, ‘Jesus isn’t saying that.’ It’s scary.”

The “Celebrity Apprentice” alum also warned about Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration and DACA.

“The roundup plan is getting more and more aggressive,” Omarosa said.

The reality star’s time on “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition” has already been marked by controversy, as she said during her first episode that she was “haunted” by the president’s tweets.

White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah responded to her jab with an attack of his own.

“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice.’ And this was the fourth time we let her go,” he told reporters at a White House press briefing Thursday. “She had limited contact with the President while here. She has no contact now.”

The White House announced in December that she had resigned, but sources have said that she was axed by Chief of Staff John Kelly and escorted out of the White House.
