Omarosa Fired, Escorted Out Of White House, According To Report
Apprentice star turned White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman was said to have resigned, according to the White House.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in an official statement:
“Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities. Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
But one reporter is painting a very different picture.
Urban Radio Networks' April Ryan tweeted earlier today:
A similar story was reported by the New York Post:
A White House official told the Wall Street Journal that Manigault Newman’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.
That is some piping hot T!
Meanwhile, a New York Times reporter tweeted the following:
UPDATE: Omarosa tells Good Morning America that reports that the Secret Service escorted her out after she tried to barge into Trump's office are false.
