Let’s be real. The ending of Omarosa in the White House was never going to be a pretty one. The former Apprentice star turned White House “advisor” has had her unlimited access to the President revoked and has also been barred from all”serious meetings.” According to the New York Times, President Trump’s new Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly has appointed longtime aide Kirstjen Nielsen as his number two.
It is Ms. Nielsen who sends out the emails announcing internal policy and planning meetings that now contain a clipped addendum — “principals only” — with a stern warning that any subordinates who wander in will be immediately ejected.
She is also responsible for keeping Mr. Kelly’s no-fly list of aides he deems to be unfit to attend serious meetings, the most prominent of whom is Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” star with an ill-defined job and a penchant for dropping into meetings where she was not invited.
Despite the White House fervently denying these reports, we’re doubtful that the NY Times would have printed these claims without a credible source. 2017 hasn’t been a great one for the Omarosa. Within weeks of starting her new gig, she was rushed to the hospital with a reported broken leg. And let’s not forget her recent breakdown at the National Association of Black Journalists conference, back in August.
Omarosa has also been accused of “triggering” President Trump by sharing negative media stories and gossip with Trump, which inadvertently led some of Trump’s explosive Twitter rants. Although Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly is a refreshing addition to the chaotic administration, it is hard not to have some empathy for the delusional WH employee.
Then again, you reap what you sow. Hopefully, Omarosa Manigault will have learned some valuable lessons from her stint in Washington, DC.
