Omarosa Manigault Newman appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night to talk about her new book.
The former Trump White House aide, who came to stardom as a villain on his TV show The Apprentice, was asked about dysfunction in the White House, and about the president’s creepy relationship with his daughter Ivanka.
Maher did have a bone to pick with Newman.
“Look, I’m not out to get you, I never didn’t like you, you’re fun—but the one thing I didn’t like was after you guys got elected I had a problem with was when you guys got elected and you said, ‘Everyone’s going to have to bow down to Donald Trump now,'” Maher said. “That’s not the way we talk in America.”
Newman made no excuses.
“It was stupid, it was dumb, it was something I said at the height of the campaign hyperbole,” she said. “Certainly I don’t believe that everybody’s going to bow down.”
But Newman also explained why she made such a dumb statement—and why so many other Trump associates do the same.
“At the time I had an audience of one,” she said. “When you work for Trump you’re not trying to entertain the audience, you’re trying to entertain him.”
Trump cancelled his trip to Denmark — because they won’t sell him Greenland
President Donald Trump unleashed a Twitter tirade on the Kindom of Denmark on Tuesday.
"Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time," Trump Tweeted.
"The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future," Trump added.

New report exposes ‘sordid details’ of Jeffrey Epstein’s outrageous jail sentence as alleged in new lawsuit
Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking of young women continued even as he was supposed to be in jail in 2008, according to a new lawsuit detailed in the Miami Herald.
The financier and sex offender pleaded guilty to state charges of prostitution in 2008, mysteriously escaping much more severe federal sex trafficking charges via a non-prosecution agreement that is now under review. Epstein’s treatment by prosecutors has come under close scrutiny because of many such bizarre decisions, which nearly all observers agree constituted a “sweetheart deal” given the evidence against him.
