GOP Is Being Eviscerated For Picking A Reality TV Show Has-Been To Give Its Official DNC ‘Response’

Omarosa Manigault was a contestant on the first season of Donald Trump’s show The Apprentice. She finished eighth, being fired by The Donald in week nine. But not too long ago, the man who obviously wasn’t impressed with her talents in 2004 hired the talent show washout to be his director of outreach to African-Americans. And after the first night of the Democratic convention, she was  picked to give the response to what was said.

Republican National Committee Communications Director Sean Spicer, who apparently learned the old (and incorrect) saying “I before E except after C” too well, introduced her with this tweet:

Yes, the RNC actually trotted out a woman whose main claim to fame is making TV Guide’s list of the “60 Nastiest Villains Of All Time” to discuss Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy “failures.” And predictably, Twitter erupted with a flood of scorn and mockery.

“Joe” has no clue of who the hell she is. And that was one of the milder reactions.

Steve Zorowitz wonders how other GOP has-been celebrities feel about it.

But it was “wazzucoug99” who had the best reaction.

And “Ex GOP” summed up what a lot of people are probably thinking.

Even former Bush speechwriter, and current editor at The Atlantic, David Frum, was mystified — either by Spicer’s tweet, Omarosa as foreign policy “expert,” or both.

Frum’s tweet invited more mockery of the whole scene.

Of course Omarosa has her defenders. Several comments asked how Omarosa’s role is any different than that of Sarah Silverman, who spoke at the DNC.

Of course, as some quickly pointed out, Silverman was not put forward to address foreign policy issues. Still, at least one twitter user thinks that because she teaches in an MBA program, that makes her an expert on everything.

George W. Bush had an MBA. How did his foreign policy decisions turn out? Hmmmm?

It’s not possible to list all of the hilarious reactions to Trump’s “expert” on foreign policy, but you can check out all of them on Twitter, here and here.
