While there, Sheryl was asked about her views on Donald Trump and that’s when she dropped a hilarious bombshell of a revelation on them regarding herself and her homegirl, Omarosa Manigault a.k.a. Trump’s former Apprentice/’Black friend’ a.k.a. Trump’s official director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. Whew! Did you get all of that? Okay good, now back to what Sheryl revealed…

In what appears to be an ongoing effort by Trump and/or his White House staff to gather up several Black ‘friends’ and celebrity support for photo-ops, Omarosa presented Sheryl with an opportunity. She asked Sheryl to board the Trump train and get herself a spot in the White House. Sheryl broke the hold situation down and her reaction to Omarosa’s proposition is priceless. Check out what she said and the video of the interview below…

Sheryl Lee Ralph: “I’mma Have To Miss That Train!”

Sheryl: “Omarosa and I meet at this church event. And I say, ‘Girlfriend, please don’t tell me your taking.. you’re doing.. what why?’ […] “And she said, ‘Sheryl, I am going to the White House. I will have an office in the White House. I am riding this train and I’ve got a ticket for you if you would like to come along. And I was like, ‘Girlfriend; I’mma have to miss that train.’”

Wow, the fact that Omarosa admitted (according to Sheryl) she is willing to back just about anyone, as long as she can have a White House office in exchange, may not sit too well with those who already accuse her of being a sell-out. Moving on…

They’re Friends with Totally Different Political Beliefs

“We’ve been friends a long time. […] We don’t share the same politics; we don’t share the same thoughts. But, I like her,” Sheryl said of her friendship with Omarosa.
