Donald Trump aide George Ross says he does not feel sorry for Carolyn Kepcher, who was recently fired by Trump himself.

"Do I think her becoming a major national star went to her head? Was she affected by it? Yes," Ross told "Good Morning America."

But it seems that the 78-year-old Ross has been out building hype for his book "Trump-Style Negotiation," and has often been spotted leaving the office to do paid speaking engagements.

One of Ross's assistants said the man who sits on Trump's right during "The Apprentice" only has eyes for serving Trump as best he can, and that he's "an ace at what he does," reported.

In reaction to Ross's comments, Kepcher said on MSBNC, "I'm shocked. I find it very ironic, to say the least. But again, good for George."
