The woman who became a household name on “The Apprentice” told her reality show housemates on Monday’s episode that they ought to think twice about a Pence presidency, saying Pence would be a “scary” alternative to President Donald Trump.
“Can I just say this: As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. So everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Newman told the others. “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying. He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”
The conversation headed toward Pence when the group started talking about the recent government shutdowns and the possibility of a Trump impeachment.
Newman also talked about the recent crackdown by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and sounded a warning alarm about coming immigration policies.
“I’ve seen the roundup plan,” she said. “It’s getting more and more aggressive.”
“Barack Obama’s administration said, ‘If you sign up and basically out yourself that you’re here illegally, we’ll protect you,'” she said. “As a result, all of these people signed up, outed their families, their children, people who were in hiding. Then Donald Trump got in and was like, ‘Yeah, that was his little executive order.'”
The other house members have generally expected bombshell material out of Newman.
“Every time she opens her mouth, I’m like, ‘Is she gonna drop a bomb?'” Ross Mathews said. “Is there gonna be a breaking news go across the screen?”

Reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former aide to President Donald Trump, returned to the set of "Celebrity Big Brother" on Saturday after she suffered an asthma attack Friday night, CBS News reported.
"The show has procedures in place to deal with this type of short-term medical treatment," CBS News reported. "Producers also made sure there was supervision to ensure there was no access to information that would provide an unfair advantage when returning to the competition."
Rumors began circulating about Newman's health Friday after a livestream captured contestant Marissa Jaret Winokur telling castmate Ross Mathews that "Omarosa had everything to lose," adding, "I mean, I put her in the hospital."
