Omarosa claims Trump is going through 'psychotic episode' and 'blaming everyone but himself' for election loss

OMAROSA Manigault Newman said President Donald Trump is “going through a psychotic episode” after losing the election to Joe Biden.

Newman, who previously served as communications director of the White House Office of Public Liaison, also said Trump “has to come to terms with his loss” in an interview with Alex Witt on MSNBC.

"I think Donald Trump is going through a psychotic episode," she said. "I think that he has come to terms with his loss, but his arrogance, his ego will not allow him to accept that he is not going to be president come January."

Newman, who was a contestant on Trump's reality show The Apprentice, worked in the White House from 2017 until she was fired in 2018.

She said that Trump attempting to overturn the results of the election reminds her of working on the show.

“This is not The Apprentice, this is not a reality show,” she said. “The American people need true leadership, not a reality TV host, which Donald Trump is reverting to.”

That year, she wrote a tell-all book about her experience called "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.”

“You know, I really feel bad for those who are left because the reality is, is Donald’s going to turn to anyone and blame everyone for his loss except for himself,” Newman said.

Newman added that Vice President Mike Pence would “certainly” receive some of Trump’s wrath, which she called “erratic” and said “makes absolutely no sense.”

Pence. as vice president, presides over the Senate and has a constitutional duty to validate election results, which insiders told Axios would be viewed as “the ultimate betrayal” by Trump.


Newman has become a vocal critic of the president since leaving the White House, and has since become an adviser to Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer.

“Serious question? Is Donald Trump a #Snowflake” Newman tweeted on Nov. 6, when it was projected that Trump had lost the presidential election.

In 2019, Trump tweeted that he would be suing “wacky Omarosa” for breaking confidentiality agreements.

“Yes, I am currently suing various people for violating their confidentiality agreements. Disgusting and foul-mouthed Omarosa is one,” Trump said.

“I gave her every break, despite the fact that she was despised by everyone, and she went for some cheap money from a book. Numerous others also!”

Trump announced on Twitter on Sunday night that he would be holding a rally in Washington, the day after Georgia’s runoff election and when Congress is set to certify the election results.
