Comedian Stephen Colbert mocked former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Thursday after she slammed President TrumpDonald John TrumpCorker: US must determine responsibility in Saudi journalist's death Five takeaways from testy Heller-Rosen debate in Nevada Dem senator calls for US action after 'preposterous' Saudi explanation MORE on "Celebrity Big Brother". 

Manigault-Newman told another contestant on the show, which premiered on Wednesday, that she was "haunted" by Trump's tweets and that the U.S. would not be OK under Trump's leadership. 

"Oh really? Oh really, you were haunted? Out here it's been the Trumpetyville horror," Colbert said sarcastically. 


“Also, Omarosa, pro tip. When you’re on a reality show, whispering doesn’t really work. Trump can still hear you," he continued, referring to the clip of Omarosa from the show. 

“I believe you. I had an inkling things weren’t going to be OK when Trump hired Omarosa to work in the White House," he said. 

Manigault-Newman, who resigned from the White House in December, made the comments to her roommate on the show, Ross Matthews. 

“I was haunted by tweets every day,” she said. “Like, what is he going to tweet next?”

“It’s going to not be OK, it’s not,” she said when asked if Americans should be worried about Trump. “It’s so bad.”

The White House fired back at Manigault-Newman's comments on Thursday in a press briefing, saying she no longer has contact with Trump. 

“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this was the fourth time we let her go,” deputy press secretary Raj Shah said. 

“She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
