Update to Omarosa Firing: She TEASES a ‘Tell All’
There’s an update the Omarosa Maginault Newman saga.
Something tells me we will hear more from Omarosa now, than when she was part of the Trump team.
Already the media teases salacious potential, as the New York Post wrote,
Outgoing presidential aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said she saw things at the White House that “profoundly” disturbed her — as she shot down reports that she was fired and physically removed, insisting Thursday that she resigned.
The former “Apprentice” star told “Good Morning America” that reports that the Secret Service escorted her out after she tried to barge into President Trump’s office were false.
“The White House is the most secure place in the world,” she said. “I think you should take the word of the Secret Service over someone who has a personal vendetta.”
She was apparently referring to April Ryan, White House bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks, who tweeted Wednesday that chief of staff John Kelly “kicked her [Manigault Newman] out with high drama.”
In Omarosa’s defense, Ryan’s tweet was speculative at best.
Further, there is no love lost between these two black women. And let’s not forget, Ryan hates Donald Trump.
Hot Air referenced a run-in with Maginault-Newman by White House reporter April Ryan. Those two have history together, and Ryan tweeted this.
Sources say General Kelly did the firing and Omarosa is alleged to have acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump. The word is a General Kelly had it and got rid of her.

Ryan elaborated in a radio report, claiming that when Kelly told Omarosa she was out, she demanded to speak to Trump directly. Nope, said Kelly, this isn’t like going to the principal’s office. He’s already signed off on my decision. Omarosa allegedly then started cursing up a storm and told him that she had brought the black vote to Trump last fall. Kelly’s reaction is unknown but presumably he bust out laughing. Then, when they were done, Ryan says Omarosa tried to get into the White House residence to plead with Trump directly about keeping her job. The Secret Service hauled her off and that was that.
Again, I believe nothing of what April Ryan says. However, I do have some knowledge of Omarosa, and I wouldn’t rule parts of the story out.
The New York Post article continues,
Manigault Newman told Michael Strahan on “GMA” that she had a “straightforward” discussion with Kelly inside a secure room at the White House, where she raised issues of concern.
The outgoing aide, who enjoyed unfettered access to the president before Kelly replaced Reince Priebus as Oval Office gatekeeper, said she and other staffers “all had to adjust to his militaristic style.”
“John Kelly brought much order to the White House,” she added.
So there was a tease.
And another issue has been raised around Charlottesville.
Manigault Newman also was asked about reports that she was displeased with the president’s handling of the rally by white nationalists in Charlottesville and with his support for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
“I have to be very careful,” she said, noting that she still works for the president until Jan. 20. “There were a lot of things I was unhappy with. I have quite a story to tell.”
Meanwhile, TMZ reported Thursday that Manigault Newman believes she’d be a good candidate for a future undersecretary position or an ambassadorship in Nigeria.
Another role she’s open to is as a liaison for Trump’s administration in her new home state of Florida, TMZ reported.
I suspect Omarosa’s time in the administration is over. But her time spent there was invaluable. She will undoubtedly get a book deal, and I see a reality show in her future. Perhaps this time she won’t get fired.
