British journalist Piers Morgan lashed out at Omarosa Manigault as a “reprehensible human being” as she returns to reality TV following a stint in the White House.
Manigault was fired in November from President Donald Trump’s public liaison office, and she is currently appearing on the CBS reality show “Celebrity Big Brother,” where she has been criticizing some of her former White House colleagues.
Morgan, who appeared with Manigault on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” hosted by Trump, hit back at his former cast mate Tuesday in his Daily Mail column.
“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen,” Morgan wrote. “But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work.”
Morgan claims Manigault offered him sex in exchange for winning “Celebrity Apprentice,” called him a “f*cking f*ggot” when he refused, tried to humiliate him in front of other cast members and threatened to punch him.
“Omarosa is a reprehensible human being, prepared to offer sex to win a reality TV show and use the most vile homophobic slurs against rival contestants,” he said.
Morgan said it was “obviously (and) completely unacceptable” that accused spousal abuser Rob Porter held onto his job as White House staff secretary until photographic proof was published, but he asked why Manigault had remained there for so long.
“On Celebrity Big Brother, Omarosa’s been singing like a b*tchy canary about Trump, V-P Mike Pence and others. And this will be just the start of it,” Morgan said. “Brace yourselves for the ‘insider’ book, the docu series and the Lifetime movie.”
Morgan said Trump prides himself in backing winners, but he said Manigault had never won anything in her life.
“He took this serial loser, and horrible human being, into the heart of the White House to spread her poison,” Morgan said. “In its way, that’s just as big a scandal as Rob Porter, yet nobody seems to care.”
