'He Wants to Be Alabama's Omarosa': 'The Five' Reacts to Ex-WH Aide's Trump Tell-All
The panel on "The Five" discussed former White House aide Cliff Sims, who released a new tell-all book about the Trump administration -- which also may have landed him in legal trouble with the president's campaign.
Sims made the media rounds on Tuesday, which landed him in hot water with Trump, who tweeted that the ex-staffer is "a mess" and maintained that he was "nothing more than a go-fer."
ABC News host and ex-Bill Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos said Sims' book was "the most explosive yet from an insider in the [Trump] White House."
On "The Five," Jedidiah Bila wondered aloud why Sims wasn't embarrassed by his actions.
"I don't understand these guys... they clearly want to be on TV," she said. "He should get sued. This guy came off as a weasel to me."
The Trump campaign, Bila said, is planning to sue Sims for violating a non-disclosure agreement.
Jesse Watters said the book was actually a "positive portrayal" of Sims' time in the White House, adding that it described Trump as engaged and interested.
He remarked that Sims told a story about former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) speaking for 30 minutes on health care policy, boring Trump to the point that the president walked out of the room and began watching television.
Dana Perino said she disagreed with Sims' actions, adding that a friend of hers said he is aiming to be "Alabama's Omarosa" -- in reference to another ex-White House aide and "Apprentice" contestant who began attacking Trump after she was fired.
She said Sims has issues with counsel Kellyanne Conway, but added that that is no reason to go sell a tell-all book on the White House.
