White House adviser Kellyanne Conway denounced Omarosa Manigault Newman on Tuesday morning, calling her “ungrateful” for the opportunities given to her by the president.
“I have never heard the president issue a racial slur about anyone in the two-plus years I’ve worked alongside him without interruption,” Conway said during a Fox News interview. “I would further say that Omarosa, who I considered a colleague here and a friend for a very long time, a lot of us women put a shower together for her before she got married … she never pulled me aside and never said to me, ‘Hey, I heard the president say this.'”
Conway also explained that Omarosa said “no” when she was asked if she believed Trump is a racist shortly after she left the White House.
“It does seem ungrateful,” Conway added, noting that Trump was like a mentor to Omarosa.
