Watch: Omarosa Wrote a Weak Letter Defending the Bigoted, Sexist Actions of Donald Trump

Get ready for an epic dragging session.

Published December 8, 2016

  1. In a Hollywood Reporter open letter called "I'm Black, Female, and Donald Trump Is My Friend,' 'Apprentice' alum Omarosa stood by her man Donald Trump
  2. In the column, Omarosa rebuked any claims that Trump is a racist

    "You have to look at my track record with the Trumps. People show you who they are by what they do, and in my case, he's only invested in and empowered me. He's been very public about how he feels, that I contributed to The Apprentice franchise and how I was his favorite contestant — contrary to what people say and believe about him when it comes to African-American women. Truly, I am living the American dream because of Donald Trump. Look at my career, the wealth and exposure that I've had: It's very difficult to make the argument that Donald Trump doesn't like Black people and Black women," Omarosa wrote in THR. 

  3. She also made the claim that Donald trump wants the most diverse administration in history. (Does Donald Trump know that?)

    "I'm on the presidential transition team in what is called national engagement. He has given me a personal directive that with the 4,000 jobs we need to fill, he wants his administration to be the most diverse in history. And LGBT is absolutely part of diversity. He wants it to look like America. There's only one responsibility: diversity for the transition. It's an extension of the job I had before when I was his campaign's director for African-American outreach. He spoke very openly at the con­vention about his desire that there be equality for LGBT people, for all people. These are things that have come out of his own mouth," Omarosa wrote in the column. 

  4. Although Omarosa is no stranger to criticism, more people came out of the woodwork to denounce her approval of him
