The New York Post reports:
Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former contestant on President Trump’s “The Apprentice,” was “physically dragged” from the White House after being fired as a presidential adviser, according to reports.
A White House official told the Wall Street Journal that Manigault Newsman’s departure was abrupt and confrontational. The 43-year-old, one of Trump’s most prominent African-American aides, was “physically dragged and escorted off the campus” Tuesday evening, the official told the Journal.
Colleagues of the former reality TV star — who earned $179,700 a year — have often questioned her role in the White House, where she could be seen at presidential photo ops, strolling the corridors and occasionally in the White House briefing room.
Her departure comes shortly after it was revealed she showed up at the White House with her bridal party for a surprise photo shoot — only to be banned from posting pictures publicly due to “security and ethical concerns,” according to Politico.
Spin Magazine reports:
“Apparently General Kelly gave Omarosa the notice that it was time for her to go last night,” reporter April Ryan said. “She was very upset and said that she wanted to speak to the president. According to sources, Kelly said that the president was already informed and he signed off. Kelly is also alleged to have said ‘This is not like going to the principal’s office.’”
Ryan reiterated her tweets regarding the former Apprentice star offering vulgarities before claiming that the ousted White House aide’s “assistant was let go as well.” Ryan said that sources confirmed that she did not take the news of her dismissal well, walked over to the president’s residence, “and tried to get in.”
“General Kelly was called back to deal with this issue as Omarosa was trying to get into the residence to see the president,” Ryan continued. “The Secret Service stopped her and she was escorted off campus.” During the argument with Kelly, sources alleged that Manigault Newman “claimed that she had brought the black vote to President Trump.” “General Kelly says, ‘No, that is not true.’” Ryan said.
Okay the White House still contends Omarosa signed a resignation letter. But Gen Kelly Kicked her out will high drama with the Minister offering vulgarities and curse words as she was escorted out of the building and off campus
