British journalist Piers Morgan said on Tuesday that former White House aide; Omarosa Manigault-Newman offered have sex with him in order to win the season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” on which they both appeared.
According to the Daily Mail, Morgan, who in the past has supported President Trump’s White House, questioned why a “relentlessly loathsome” person such as Manigault-Newman was offered a job in the administration.
Piers Morgan Tweeted;
*NEW: Omarosa offered me sex to win Celebrity Apprentice, then called me a ‘f***ing f*gg*t’, invented gay smears & threatened to punch me. Why the hell was this vile creature ever employed at the White House? http://dailym.ai/2EDuKDd
“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen. But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work,” Morgan wrote.
Piers Morgan went into details about his conversation with Omarosa during the first season of the Trump-hosted “The Celebrity Apprentice,” and stated that Omarosa approached him for a “showmance”. A showmance is a make believe relationship between two contestants who appear on a show to make the audience speculate about a romance and that may, as a result, yield money for those involved.
Morgan quotes the former White House aide as saying;
“Piers, do you want a showmance? A showmance. You know, a romance on the show — we get it on together. Happens all the time on Apprentice. Everyone has sex together. Then we can make lots of money out of it.”
Morgan said that when he turned down the offer, Manigault-Newman questioned his sexuality and asked him if he is gay.
“You must be joking, you deluded woman.” Morgan says he responded.
Morgan said Manigault-Newman’s accusations surrounding his sexuality eventually made their way in front of the cameras, prompting Morgan to jokingly kiss country singer Trace Adkins during a scene on the show.
“Beneath the laughs though lay a less savory truth. 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. Despite this, Trump took this serial loser, and horrible human being, into the heart of the White House to spread her poison.”
Omarosa is currently a contestant on “Celebrity Big Brother,” after she left her White House position in December of 2017.
Meanwhile, Piers Morgan is a supporter of Trump, so no one can say for sure if his anger stems from Omarosa bad-mouthing Trump after she left the white house. However, Morgan said that h is compelled to speak out now because the focus right now is on White House employee screening and that he finds the hiring of Omarosa as scandalous as that of Rob Porter, whose two ex-wives accused of spousal abuse just last week.
