Omarosa Manigault on Trump: ‘Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down’ winning will be ‘ultimate revenge’

Omarosa Manigault of Apprentice Fame and now Donald Trump’s director of African-American outreach spoke about the Trump presidency and how those who have dared to criticize the Republican presidential nominee will “…bow down” to “the most powerful man in the universe.”

During the “Frontline” special, Manigault told PBS that the roots of Trump’s presidential campaign may be traced back to the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner, when President Barack Obama cracked a few jokes at the real estate mogul’s expense, fueling the birther conspiracy theory.

“It just kept going and going and he just kept hammering him,” Manigault said. “And I thought, ‘Ohhhh, Barack Obama is starting something that I don’t know if he’ll be able to finish.”

“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”

Manigault made her name as the villain on the first season of Trump’s Apprentice and you can check out the full clip below.

Chris Hayes took issue with Manigault on during his MSNBC interview as she dismissed the birther issue and says Trump has moved on, focusing on real issues for the American people. She then hangs the birther controversy around Hillary Clinton’s neck as the birther issue was raised by a staffer during the 2008 primary.

“The birther issue is not on the table because that’s not what Americans want to talk about,” she says, even calling him “Boo” and says she’s “challenging” Hayes “to be a journalist tonight.”

That clip is at the bottom.
