White House Hits Back At Omarosa: She Was Fired Three Times On Apprentice And A Fourth Time By Us

The Huffington Post reports:

White House spokesman Raj Shah dismissed former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman’s recent disparaging comments about President Donald Trump, telling reporters during a Thursday press conference that she was forced out of the role.

“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this was the fourth time we let her go,” Shah said, referencing Newman’s previous appearances on the reality show Trump once helmed. The comment conflicts with Newman’s past claims that she willingly resigned from the role in December.

Shah said the White House is not taking her comments seriously. “She had limited contact with the president while here,” he said. “She has no contact now.”

    White House Hits Back At Omarosa: She Was Fired Three Times On Apprentice

    And yet you hired her.

    • crewman

      The first three firings didn’t take.

      • Hank

        Like Herr Drumpf’s “hair plugs”!

      • popebuck1

        She’s like Japanese knotgrass – it just keeps growing back over and over again, unless you literally burn it to the ground and nuke the whole site with Roundup.

        • Steve Smith

          Then it pops up in your neighbour’s garden…

      • narutomania

        Because they hadn’t actually driven the wooden stake into her heart. It only grazed a lung.

    • Marty Pavelka

      Ye gods, it’s like a bunch of 10 year old children in the WH. Nyah! Nyah! Nyah!

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen

        “You watch your phraseology!”

      • nocadrummer

        Lead by a two year-old.

        Nyah! Nyah, Nyah, Nyah, Nyah! Heaaaaay, Good Bye!

    • Chuck in NYC

      As if this administration is simply an extension of The Apprentice.

      Oh, wait…

      • David Walker

        In which case, they really ought to take a look at their ratings. If anyone ever needed a script doctor, it’s this lot. “Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice”? If Cadet Bone Spurs’ staff thinks that explains everything, it’s even more Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour than anyone ever thought.

    • DavidOntario

      again and again and again. The stupid burns.

      • Glenn

        That means it’s working.

    • LovesIrony

      to lead an outreach program no less.

    • FancyThat

      Omarosa is a five-point target for him: 1) female 2) black 3) opinionated/outspoken/political 4) celebrity 5) critical of him — for today, anyway.

      Substitute lesbian for black and you get Rosie O’Donnell, another arch nemesis of the two-bitcoin “billionaire.”

      So far, Black trumps Gay for his 2017-2018 hate benchmarks, so Omarosa’s 15 minutes may very well be extended.

    • kaydenpat

      The best people. **rolls eyes**

  • Kelly Lape

    Until Fox News reports on it the president won’t even know she’s gone.

  • Karl Dubhe

    “The best people”


  • Joe in PA

    Fired 4 times? Says more about Trump than it does about her. Just saying. Putz.

    • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

      Well to be fair, it was the nbc network execs that made all the decisions on that show.

  • NZArtist

    So why the fuck was she even hired in the first place?
    Why were *any* of you idiots hired in the first place?

    • agcons

      Stop asking pertinent questions, you disloyal Ameri . . . oh, wait.

  • Eric Lewis

    Wait … who kept rehiring her ? What a lame excuse per normal.

  • Bambino
  • Ninja0980

    If folks want to know why she was hired, it’s because they couldn’t find any other token blacks willing to work for Trump.

    • Snarkaholic

      Only Ben Grain-Silos McStabby.

  • JWC

    Who fucking cares she was trump baggage

  • Jim Maloney

    (eye roll) at all these circus freaks. He let her in his circus.

  • Gustav2

    Poor Omarosa, all she knows how to do is keep getting fired from reality shows. The Apprentice, the WH makes five, BB will be six.

    • popebuck1

      I was really hoping she would be the first one kicked off, but she was given immunity from the first eviction in a highly suspicious (to me, anyway) fashion.


    The list of people that Trump never had much contact with grows by the day…


    • JWC

      and never Eric do not know him at all

  • Lindoro Almaviva

    Drama drama drama.

    • Todd20036

      Or have a parade

  • HoneyBoySmith

    Wasn’t the original story that she voluntarily resigned?

    • Gustav2

      Which original story?

  • Paula

    C’mon, Omarosa, they be dissin’ you girl. Realease a tell all book about everything. Even if none of it is true, It will drive Donnie Two Scoops crazy.

    • alguien

      2 scoops crazy.

      i think you just coined a new phrase. you know, for when plain old bat shit isn’t enough.

    • Snarkaholic

      This administration is such a freak show, she won’t even need to lie.

    • The_Wretched

      It’s dangerous to ask if they are at the bottom of a barrel. They say, “hold my beer” every time.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        Well nobodys been caught lighting their own farts, yet.

    • Todd20036

      Rock bottom is WWIII

  • Bambino

    The country is spiraling down to shit hole. What do we do?!! Just plug on and plug off until it works! These are the people got elected into the office.

    • Lizard

      Hillary got elected. The EC put Trump into power.

      And none of Trump’s cronies were “elected,” any more than the appointees of any president are elected. We weren’t given the option to reject Omarosa.

  • boobert
    • June Gordon

      She is so awful at impersonations. Such a lost opportunity because Omarosa has a very distinctive way of speaking.

  • MBear

    Isnt an omarosa a particularly virulent form of genital HPV infection…?

    • Pollos Hermanos

      I used to say that Rosecrans sounded like a form of VD.

      It must be, because It. Never. Goes. Away.

      I know this is a big deal in terms of White House drama, but I can’t look past her eye makeup. Ugh.

    • The_Wretched

      That’s just code for here having to go serve some ‘executive time’ with Trump.

      • Guess?

      Pence is the deployable robot.

    • Lazycrockett

      The VP is only given as much info as the President wants. Drumpf doesn’t like Pence and didn’t want him, so he gets nada.

      • NZArtist

        He’s only in the job because all the botox stops him from frowning ever.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      He always looks like he’s trying really hard to act.

      • Gustav2

        He really needs to learn how to fake sincerity.

    “… and this was the fourth time we let her go, Shah said …”

    Well, no, “we” didn’t do anything, unless Shah was on The Apprentice also (he wasn’t). Raj Shah is merely parroting words from Dump.

    So, Raj … you’re no spokesman, you’re nothing but a human bitch-tweet from a wannabe God-Emperor.

    • clay

      But it does suggest that Turmp’s White House is nothing but another Turmp Corporation reality show.

      • Lizard

        You doubted that?

        • clay

          I don’t TRY to make assumptions. . .

  • Publius

    Who cares? They’re all shitty people.

  • Lazycrockett
    • Lizard

      I give him a D+. He demonstrates some semblance of critical thinking but still can’t seem to bring himself to criticize Dear Leader.

    • The_Wretched

      Trump’s handlers are messaging him again. The parade idea has gone over poorly.

  • safari

    Don’t we need a budget deal by midnight?

    • clay

      Continuing Resolution by midnight.

    • Hank

      Yep, otherwise the will be another Government Shutdown

  • Leo

    Ivanka AND Jared now ACTIVELY seeking John Kelly’s replacement.

    Trump allegedly wants him gone by Spring.

    • safari

      It’ll end up being Ivanka.

      • Leo

        Oh sweet Jesus it will won’t it.

      • Lizard

        I know that’s bad for democracy, but I can’t help it–I lol’d. I just finished re-reading Fire and Fury, where Michael Wolff is not shy about how stupid Jared and Ivanka have been since January 2017.

        I’ll go sit in the corner now and think about what I’ve done.

    • clay

      Porter was a hold-over from Priebus’ staff, but I guess Turmp doesn’t recognize his own note-taker.

    • andrew

      The Trumps use people like toilet paper. They wipe their asses with them and then flush them.

    you just need to get on back home, loretta. you got you’re azz whipped – and good.

    “The Enemy of my Enemy is my friend”?

  • nocadrummer

    “Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice'”

    “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice….”
    So why DID they hire her at the White House in the first place?

    • Guess?

      Exactly. Shouldn’t he have tried to hire only the winners, not the LOSERS?

  • Hank

    Who the Hell Cares about her??

    • Bambino

      Squirrels are getting annoyed being misidentify.

    • Chuck in NYC

      Apparently the White House still does, because they are going so far as to address it instead of simply, sensibly saying, “No comment. We wish her well.”

      • Todd20036

        When has this WH done anything sensible?

  • Lazycrockett
    • The_Wretched

      Josh Marshall has been making that observation for most of a year now.

    • Bambino

      Years from now, one will see the mountains of casualties on the path of the bone spur cadet left behind.

    • Ninja0980

      Quite frankly, Trump does get unfair blame in one way.
      These people didn’t become scumbags because of Trump, they already were.

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        I heard a rumor that he found them all together in a basket.

        • Todd20036

          Next to a tube of lotion

    • Gustav2

      I think Kelly is really that conservative old fart whitie. He now has the freedom to speak his mind, he couldn’t before because of the regs.

  • AJ Drew

    and yet WH hired her at all. Grr.

  • Elsewhere1010

    Sorry, but there’s no one here to root for. I wish these people all the best, and by all the best I mean terribly long prison sentences.

  • olandp

    So she was just a coffee girl?

    How much coffee do these people drink?

  • BobSF_94117

    “Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this was the fourth time we let her go,” Shah said

    Cuz the administration is a continuation of The Apprentice?

    Actually, I can see how that makes sense…

  • AJ Drew
    • Jefe5084

      One should not insult a cat. They will not put up with it.

  • SFHarry

    The reporter’s follow up question should have been: If that is the case which other White House staff has the president hired knowing they were losers.

    • -M-

      Jared, Sarah, the Mikes,… Ya know, it’s gonna take a while to pull all that information together so I’ll get back to you with that.

      • SFHarry

        Oh yes, and myself as well.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    If she was fired so many times, why in the hell was she hired in the first place? I know Mr “I only hire the best people” is an idiot, but he only proves daily that he is.

  • Henry Auvil

    Can the Statue of Liberty somehow hide her head in shame? White House vs. a reality show fame whore they hired and then fired. Wake me when this nightmare is over.

    • Dazzer

      Reality Show White House versus Celebrity Big Brother.

      That’s where you’re at, America.

  • DesertSun59

    45 vets and only hires the best. Every time.

  • ClevelandJim

    Hey Rag, nobody fucking cares as much as you all do. Grow the fuck UP!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    And the Pompous Puerile Pouting Petty Pity Party continues…someone call me when they’re done because this one has more “P” than Trump’s other parties.

  • fuzzybits

    How many damn times will we hear about the apprentice?

    • Dayglo

      Honestly, wasn’t it a crap show to begin with?

      • Gianni

        “YOU’RE FIRED!”

  • Gregory In Seattle

    And yet, Trump kept hiring her back again and again. So who is the greater fool?

  • red-diaper-baby 1942

    That’s right, she was a coffee-girl. No contact at all. What do you want to bet he’ll be`next to go?

  • Gianni

    I marvel at how the White House, like Donnie, just can’t get it through their heads that there is no need to comment on every perceived slight or insult. Try letting some of this stuff just roll off your back, unacknowledged. The less bull we hear from you, the better we’ll all feel.
