Samantha Bee Calls White House Staffer Omarosa a 'Chaos Muppet'

Samantha Bee discussed White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's reported distaste for director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison Omarosa Manigualt.


The word salad before Omarosa's name did not go unnoticed by the TBS Full Frontal host. “Literally, nobody knows what Omarosa does in the White House other than piss people off,” Bee said. 

The former White House staffer during the Clinton administration and later Apprentice contestant became an infamous TV villain known by her first name. Her actual function in the White House, despite being described as a liaison to African-Americans, remains a mystery.

Bee believes that President Donald Trump “didn’t hire Omarosa to do black outreach, Trump hired Omarosa because he’s a narcissist and she’s a prettier version of himself.”

She referred to Omarosa as a "chaos muppet" who provides Trump with "the madness and discord he craves."
