On the Monday night episode of "Celebrity Big Brother" houseguest Omarosa Manigault Newman, who served as a White House aide, warned against impeaching President Donald Trump, saying that Vice President Mike Pence would be a "scary" Commander in Chief.

"Can I just say this? As bad as y'all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence," she told her fellow celebrity houseguests. "Anyone wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became President, that's all I'm saying. He's extreme."

Omarosa, who appeared on NBC's "The Apprentice" which Trump hosted at the time, went on to discuss Pence's religious beliefs, calming Pence believes Jesus Christ tells him to say things.

"I'm Christian, I love Jesus but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things - I'm like, 'Jesus didn't say that.' He's scary,'" she said.

Elsewhere in the segment, Omarosa discussed DACA, criticized the Obama administration, and called Trump a "numbers guy," adding he wants to "outdo his predecessors."

Before competing on the CBS reality show, Omarosa was the White House's director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison before abruptly leaving in December.

This isn't the first time Omarosa has discussed Trump on "Celebrity Big Brother." She made headlines last week when talking with fellow houseguest Ross Mathews, saying she's "haunted" by the president's tweets and that America will "not be OK."

Pence has a long history of opposing LGBTQ equality and has long supported "religious liberty" measures, having signed bill into law when he served as the govern of Indiana in 2015.
