Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former Office of Public Liaison communications director, warned against a potential President Mike Pence, telling co-stars of the reality show “Celebrity Big Brother” that he “thinks Jesus is telling him to say things.

“We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president,” Manigault-Newman said. "I’m Christian. I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus is telling him to say things. I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t saying that.’ It’s scary.”

The clip is the latest in a string of controversial comments from the onetime “Apprentice” star, who was forced out of the White House late last year.
