Omarosa's Trump confessions are meant to help her bottom line — not her guilty conscience: Dem congressman

Omarosa Manigault's White House confessions on Big Brother have less to do with assuaging her guilty conscience and more to do with promoting her bottom line, one congressman argued Wednesday.


"Nobody wishes ill will to her," Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) told TMZ, noting that although Manigault's comments about her time working in the White House "echo" the Democrats' concerns about the Trump administration, her intentions may not be pure.

She wants "back into stardom and back into the reality show world where it's a business," he continued. "No one ever said that Omarosa didn't have good business skills."

When asked if Manigault's White House anecdotes inspire him to watch Big Brother, Richmond responded with an unequivocal "Hell no!"

"I'm too busy watching the president," he said. "That's a full-time job."
