One of the more surprising additions to the Donald Trump administration has been Omarosa, who made her name during the first season of "The Apprentice." While sitting down for an interview on "The View," the segment quickly spiraled out of control after Omarosa lost her cool.

Omarosa on "The View"

After being fired by Donald Trump on "The Apprentice," Omarosa has bounced back into the president's good graces. Omarosa was recently named the Director of African-American outreach, and is a prominent voice in the administration.

One of the most high-profiled African-Americans to support the commander in chief, she has been task with increasing support with the community moving forward. Often controversial, Omarosa brought her rhetoric to the set of "The View" on January 27, and the interview instantly became tense.

Just moments after joining the panel on "The View" on Friday morning, Omarosa quickly showed signs of tension. One of the first questions asked of Omarosa was whether or not she felt "used" by Donald Trump, with the additional criticism of the new president not really caring about the African-American community.

As co-host Sunny Hostin attempted to ask her questions, Omarosa repeatedly cut her off, eventually stating, "First of all, nobody uses me!."

The former "The Apprentice" contestant went on to push back at the allegations that Donald Trump wasn't the legitimate president, engaging in an uncomfortable exchange with co-host Joy Behar. "I'm gonna tell you about my life!" Omarosa told Behar, after the host questioned why she was able to make it in the United States, while other African-Americans have struggled. The two continued to clash throughout the segment, arguing about debunked claims of voter fraud, the media, and Hillary Clinton.

In a final blow, Omarosa pointed out her husband in the audience, before turning to Behar and stating, "And I hope that you one day could find that kind of joy, Joy, in your life."

President Trump has only been in office for one week, and tensions are at an all-time high, with the political divide in the country widening by the day.
