Sean Spicer Says He’s Not Being Paid to Praise Trump, Despite What Omarosa Said
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer says Omarosa Manigault‘s claims that he — as well as other former staffers — are being paid to laud President Donald Trump is just plain bogus.
Manigault made the claim during an interview with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press.
“They were not offering me a real job. They told me I could work from home, if I even wanted to work. They didn’t really care if I showed up,” Manigault claimed. “In fact, there are several former employees from the White House who actually signed this agreement, who are all being paid $15,000 for their silence.”
Todd then asked her if former White House staffers were being “bought off.”
“Absolutely,” Manigault replied.”The campaign, the RNC, and America First, which is why Sean Spicer was describing Donald Trump as a ‘unicorn jumping over rainbows’…Because he signed this same agreement.”
Spicer, though, denies he is being paid to praise Trump.
“There’s no evidence of anything of the sort,” Spicer told The New York Post when asked about Manigault’s remarks. “What’s equally disappointing to me is not only did Chuck Todd give Omarosa a platform, but he failed to challenge her in the most basic ways.”
Spicer did join Trump’s America First and sign a regular employee agreement but that was after Manigault’s book was written, according to The Post.
