Piers Morgan claims former Trump staffer Omarosa called him a ‘f**king faggot’

Piers Morgan has claimed that former White House staffer Omarosa once called him a ‘f**king faggot’.

The former journalist made the allegation about Omarose Manigault-Newma, a former Apprentice contestant who served as Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison inside the White House before her very public exit from the Trump administration last month.

Morgan, who appeared on a season of Celebrity Apprentice alongside Omarosa, made allegations about her conduct in a column for MailOnline.

He claimed that she had propositioned him while they were appearing on the show together.

Morgan claims she said: “Piers, do you want a showmance? You know, a romance on the show – we get it on together. Happens all the time on Apprentice. Everyone has sex together.

“Then we can make lots of money out of it.”

He recalled: “I stared at her grasping, ferociously ambitious little eyes, and laughed: ‘You must be joking, you deluded woman.’ She didn’t take it well. ‘What are you? Gay?'”

The columnist claimed, “‘Shut the f**k up, a**hole,’ snarled Omarosa Manigault-Newman at me. ‘How are your kids going to feel when they wake up and discover their dad’s a f**king f*gg*t?’

“Yes, this is the same Omarosa Manigault-Newman who just spent a year inside Donald Trump’s White House.

“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen.

“But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work”

Morgan went on to claim that Omarosa’s plan inside the White House was “amassing a whole mass of damaging information to now use against President Trump and his administration on Celebrity Big Brother”.

The former Trump official entered the US CBB House this week – and has been dishing on her time inside the Trump administration.

In a conversation with out RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Ross Matthews, Omarosa warned about the “extreme” views of Vice President Mike Pence.

She said: “As bad as you all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment, might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became President, is all I’m saying.

“He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things that are like… and I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t say that’. It’s scary.”

Pence is known for his anti-LGBT evangelical views.

The politician, who is heading the US delegation to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, has had a protracted spat with gay athletes this month.

When gay figure skater Adam Rippon challenged the Vice President’s concerning stances on LGBT equality, Pence put out a statement suggesting that the athlete had misled the public.

Morgan, a personal friend of Donald Trump, was widely mocked earlier this month over an interview with the billionaire in which he failed to significantly challenge any of the administration’s policies or press the leader to address scandals.

The ITV host then accused rival network the BBC of “homophobia”, after comedy show The Mash Report produced a cartoon of Morgan with his nose up Donald Trump’s backside – an apparent reference to the term “brown-nosing”.

Posting a screen capture, he wrote: “Amusing though this image may be to many people, can you imagine the BBC broadcasting it if the President was Hillary Clinton or the interviewer was a woman?

“Is that how licence payer money should be spent?”

Morgan also accused the BBC of discrimination, saying that he was simply “highlighting BBC gender equality hypocrisy.”

Responding to a question about whether he was upset by the post, Morgan said: “I don’t give a damn but I’m amazed BBC2 would broadcast an image like that, and judging by the reaction to my tweet about it, so are a lot of other people. Is that how licence payer money should be spent?”

In a later tweet, the controversial host, who has aired a number of questionable views on LGBT+ issues, wrote asking what would happen if the BBC had tweeted the same image with Hillary Clinton and a female interviewer.

He wrote: “If Trump tweeted an image like this depicting Hillary Clinton & a female interviewer, all those currently celebrating/retweeting it would erupt with outraged cries of ‘Sexist!’ ‘Misogynist!’ ‘Homophobic!’ – led by the BBC.

“Liberal hypocrisy in all its unedifying glory!”
