As Twitchy told you earlier, former White House aide — and “Apprentice” contestant — Omarosa Manigault Newman trashed Donald Trump and his administration on a recent episode of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
At this afternoon’s White House press briefing, principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah was asked about Omarosa’s comments. Here’s what he had to say:
White House spokesman @RajShah45 dismisses comments by Omarosa Manigault Newman, saying she was fired three times on the Apprentice. "This is the fourth time we let her go,” he says.

Raj Shah responds to Omarosa Manigault saying she is "haunted" by Trump's tweets: "Omarosa was fired three times on 'The Apprentice' and this is the fourth time we let her go." pic.twitter.com/Mx3MvicDPI

Also, this raises a very valid point:
So the President who only hires the “best people” hired someone whom he fired 3 times in the past? https://t.co/lAzCNiT3Wq

So why did they hire her in the first place?
