Donald Trump Calls Omarosa A “Loyal Friend” After She Defends Him (VIDEO)
Donald Trump is calling former “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa a “loyal friend” after she defended his controversial presidential debate appearance, in which he was asked about why he sometimes uses offensive comments like “fat pig” to describe women. See video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Trump brushed off his history of derogatory remarks during last Thursday’s debate, cracking to moderator Megyn Kelly that he was just talking about Rosie O’Donnell. He went on to rant about what he sees as the needlessness of political correctness. Then on Friday, Trump called into CNN and took a jab at Kelly for the exchange, seemingly implying that she was hormonal due to her menstrual cycle.
That led to a new round of criticism against Trump, and he attempted to clarify on Saturday by bashing Kelly again. But on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN, Omarosa came to the presidential candidate’s defense, saying, “Donald Trump does not have a woman problem.” Addressing Kelly’s debate question, the reality star argued, “I think this is equivalent to going through somebody’s trash and cherry-picking the things you think will bring down his campaign. Going through comments Donald Trump has made in the last 30 years is just the lowest form of journalism.”
Omarosa continued, “Yeah, he said things off-the-cuff, but to take them and use them and try to apply them to all women… just because he doesn’t like Rosie O’Donnell doesn’t mean he hates all women. I think it’s ridiculous to paint with such a broad brush. He does NOT have a woman problem.”
Trump appreciated Omarosa taking his side, and tweeted to her on Monday afternoon, “.@OMAROSA You were fantastic on television this weekend. Thank you so much – you are a loyal friend!” As Gossip Cop previously reported, “Celebrity Apprentice” winner Piers Morgan is also standing by Trump, while fellow winner Arsenio Hall has said Trump’s recent actions have made him feel less proud of winning his NBC competition.
