Omarosa Manigault-Newman was seen in the first episode of “Celebrity Big Brother” whispering secrets to a fellow contestant about President Donald Trump.
Anderson Cooper couldn’t help but laugh at the idea that she was whispering while on television like it was some sort of secret.
“If I whisper into the microphone, nobody can hear me,” Cooper said, pulling his microphone close to his mouth. “What’s going on? That’s crazy.”
“We should do a slow where everybody does that. It’s a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit,” former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) joked.
“And who could have predicted this would happen?” asked Kirsten Powers.
“So shocking,” Margaret Hoover laughed.
Cooper wondered if it is a betrayal to the people she worked with in the White House to go on a show and speak so ill of the person who gave her a job.
Jeffrey Toobin joked that it isn’t actually betrayal if it’s whispered.
Bakari Sellers called it a “hot mess” and noted that the latest from Omarosa is indicative of what this White House is.
“Because you saw the press secretary go in and equate working in the White House to ‘The Apprentice,'” he said.

GOP now panicking about Trump because they’re losing ‘plausible deniability’ for their racist agenda: columnist
After smearing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as anti-Semitic—-and letting the crowd at his Greenville, North Carolina rally roar "send her back!" for more than 10 seconds -- President Donald Trump was forced to distance himself from the chant.
He falsely claimed that he'd continued his speech immediately after the crowd started yelling. On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump was under intense pressure by his daughter, Ivanka, and Vice President Mike Pence, to disavow the chants.
Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Greg Sargent lays out why "send her back" makes Republicans so nervous, when they seem perfectly fine with radical immigration policies like zero-tolerance and the separation of kids from their parents, which are applied to non-white asylum seekers.
‘Catastrophic,’ ‘beyond shameful,’ and ‘xenophobia-fueled’ Trump administration panned over proposal to slash refugee cap to zero
"An admissions goal of zero would be another low in a global race to the bottom"
Human rights advocates said the Trump administration would be making a "catastrophic" and "grave error" if it followed through on a newly-reported proposal to slash refugee admissions to zero next year.
"It is beyond shameful and a new low, even for this administration, to even consider accepting no refugees to the U.S.," said Ryan Mace, grassroots advocacy and refugee specialist for Amnesty International USA.
