Who’s next? Step N’ Fetchit? Aunt Jemina? Uncle Ben? Sleep N’ Eat? Rastus? Lil’ (N-word) Jim? Omarosa gonna give out free Popeye’s Chicken with sides to deliver (the) black vote to Trump? YA-DIG?

Omarosa caused a stir on social media when she announced that she’s now GOP presidential candidate’s director of African American outreach.

“It is a very difficult time for our country, but the good thing is that I know Donald Trump at his heart,”she told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday. “And I know what he can do in that role.”

When asked about Trump’s minimal support from African Americans, Manigault acted confused when saying, “I’m just wondering who they polled because I just spent about an amazing weekend with African Americans for Trump…about 300 of them.”

“My reality is I’m surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African American. Donald Trump is focused on improving the conditions of African Americans in this country… unemployment in African-American community is at an all-time high,” she added.

Manigault appeared in Season 1 of Trump’s “Apprentice” reality series, and according to a 2004 People Magazine article, she was “banished from four jobs in two years with the Clinton administration.

Cheryl Shavers, former Under Secretary for Technology at the Commerce Department says Omarosa “was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive. One woman wanted to slug her.”
