Omarosa Loses Trump Administration Job, Was Escorted Out Of The Building


Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on “The Apprentice” who campaigned with Donald Trump and followed him into the White House, was “escorted out of the building and off campus” last night according to CNN correspondent April Ryan.

Officially, Mrs. Newman has resigned effective January 20th, 2018. That would make her just one of many Trump administration staffers, including deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, to leave at the one-year mark since the inauguration.

That is what White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says, anyway. But Ryan reports that Trump chief of staff John Kelly forced Omarosa out and that an ugly scene took place.

Yamiche Alcindor of the New York Times has confirmed the report.

On Twitter, many people noted that the firing/forced resignation took place on the same night that black women elected Alabama Democrat Doug Jones to the US Senate. It may simply be a coincidence that the only noted woman of color in the entire Trump administration was pushed out on the same evening, but that is not the way folks have reacted on social media.

It is not hard to see why Omarosa rubbed John Kelly the wrong way. As seen on “The Apprentice,” she has a history of stirring up drama in meetings and telling lies to advance herself. Trump himself once refused to give Omarosa a job reference and said she could not be trusted.

During the campaign, Omarosa regularly identified herself as a “surrogate” for Trump during media appearances even though Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks denied that she represented the campaign “in an official capacity.”

Omarosa was ostensibly a director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, which “sets up events in the White House for community groups like veterans associations and special honorees, attends conferences and events to promote the president and works to create outside political and civic campaigns,” POLITICO explained in November.

But thanks in part to her awful job performance, the office came to be known as a “dumpster fire place to work.” Staff were reportedly perturbed when Omarosa brought her bridal party to the White House for an unannounced photo shoot in April. “There was no organization, no calendar, nothing,” a former White House official told POLITICO.

Now married to a Florida pastor, Omarosa says she would like to return to ministry.
