Sean Spicer: ‘I Don’t Know’ Why Omarosa Was Hired

Even Trump’s first White House press secretary has no idea why Omarosa Manigault-Newman, recently ousted as a Trump aide in highly dramatic fashion, was hired in the first place. Appearing on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show, Spicer was asked what drove the president to employ the ex-Apprentice contestant in the first place. “I don’t know,” he said. Pressed on whether Omarosa had any qualifications, Spicer added: “Look, she was very loyal to the president... I think the president brought a lot of people who wanted to fulfill his agenda. And that’s his prerogative.” He concluded: “I wish her the best. But I don’t—I’m not really sure.”
