The Resistance Turns to the Least Popular Person in America for Help

Is the anti-Trump resistance truly this desperate? According to a Wall Street Journal interview with fired Trump staffer Omarosa, the former reality star cast herself as a convert to the anti-Trump legions in the United States.

“Former White House official Omarosa Manigault Newman portrayed herself Monday as part of the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ movement,” Journal reporter Peter Nichols wrote.

According to the report, Omarosa will “blow the whistle” throughout the midterm election season on Trump actions to which she objects.

It appears that liberals are welcoming her help. An opinion column from The New York Times’ resident resistance voice, Michelle Goldberg, welcomed the fired Trump staffer “to the resistance.” She wrote that while Omarosa “is an amoral, dishonest, mercenary grifter,” the former reality star is also a brave truth-teller taking on the Trump administration:

Instead, she chose to speak out against the man who made her a star, and repent for her complicity in electing him. She may be a manipulative narcissist, but she’s behaving more honorably than any other former Trump appointee.

In accepting Omarosa’s help, however, the resistance may be elevating the most unpopular person in America as their champion. According to a Monmouth poll released on Monday, only 8 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the fired reality star.

For perspective, even deeply unpopular Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi still enjoy an approval rating in the 20s. According to a Gallup poll released in June, a paltry 29 percent of Americans give Pelosi a thumbs-up. That’s over three times higher than Omarosa’s rating.

It appears that Americans can identify a “grifter,” in Goldberg’s words, when they see one.
