Omarosa Manigault’s first appearance to “The View” in 13 years got heated, to say the least.
The Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liasons in Donald Trump’s White House was immediately put on the defensive when co-host Sunny Hostin asked her to respond to criticisms that Trump had used the former “Apprentice” contestant during the campaign to mask callousness towards the African American community.
“First of all, no one uses me,” Manigault said. “I am the embodiment of the American dream. I grew up on welfare, on Section 8 housing, my father was killed when I was 7 years old, I went to public schools… I earned my way to sit in the White House. No one gave me anything, okay?”
Manigault and Joy Behar exchanged blows over her support of Trump, as Behar repeated attempted to interrupt Manigault’s long-winded monologues to interject on issues like racism, the “grab ‘em by the p—y” remark and the fact that Trump was a reality show star.
