Now that former White House staffer Omarosa is attacking President Trump on reality television, CNN is calling the reality star a “truth-teller” about her time in the White House.
In an appearance on “Big Brother,” Omarosa compared the White House to a “circus” full of “monkeys,” and told her co-stars that she was there to protect the country from Trump.
Playing the clip for their audience, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota introduced the segment to a panel amid protests from her co-host John Berman.
“Part of why this is fascinating, despite John’s incredulity, is because Omarosa is now a truth-teller,” Camerota said. “She’s out of the White House, and she’s talking about what it was like in there.”
CNN Analyst David Gregory clearly didn’t want to discuss Omarosa’s comments. “I think we can stick to real life in the White House and have so much to scrutinize without drifting to fantasy island land,” he said.
“Well, hold on!” Camerota objected. “She can speak more openly than people who are still [in the White House].”
