Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigualt-Newman is now a contestant on the CBS reality game show Big Brother.

She's already trying to feign horror at the administration of President Donald Trump, whom she enthusiastically endorsed before the election.

CNN host Anderson Cooper had some thoughts about her tearful, whispery revelations during a conversation with fellow contestant Ross Matthews.

“If I whisper into the microphone, nobody can hear me,” Cooper said in jest, lifting his microphone to his mouth. “What’s going on? That’s crazy.”

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) joked that her whisper-delivery would make for a good SNL skit.

When Cooper posited that Omarosa was betraying her former employer, legal analyst Jeff Toobin got the last laugh: "But it doesn't count as betrayal if you're whispering."
