Omarosa claims she has a “tell-all” book that will be coming out as soon as she’s officially out of the White House. It appears that before she makes her final exit, black Republicans and White House staffers may be beating the so-called “tyrant” to the punch…
Omarosa Manigault’s exit from the White House has black Republicans jubilantly declaring ‘the Wicked Witch is dead.’
Manigault was a ‘tyrant,’ ‘a manipulator,’ ‘a user,’ and ‘a liar’ who kept other African-Americans out of the White House on purpose, said Sean Jackson, chairman of the Black Republican Caucus of Florida.
Other black leaders celebrated Manigault’s demise for the same reasons, with one, the Maryland GOP’s Eugene Craig, telling DailyMail.com, ‘She wanted to be the only senior black Republican in Trump’s orbit.’
‘There’s some people whose claim to fame is that they are the only. It is ironic that they use the same “I was the only” when it didn’t work out,’ said Thurgood Marshall College Fund President Johnny Taylor.
Another source said, ‘None of us lost any sleep, and there’s some silent cheering going on that she lost her position.’
A former reality TV star who appeared on The Apprentice with Donald Trump, and was fired by him, on three separate seasons in the last decade, Manigault is known to many Americans as a celebrity villain who ‘Omarosa.’
She likes to stress that she has a history of working in politics, dating back to her days as a low-level staffer in Bill Clinton’s administration, to her time as the head of black outreach for Trump in the general election.
Manigault joined Trump’s White House earlier this year on Jan. 20 alongside a slew of mostly-white senior staffers.
Her version of a Tuesday firing is that she resigned because she was unsettled by the administration’s handling of racially sensitive issues like Charlottesville, the death of Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson’s husband La David Johnson and the rise of Roy Moore.
Multiple sources have revealed to DailyMail.com that Manigault was fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and her conduct was the problem.
‘He was just tired of her ranting and parading around as if she owned the place,’ Jackson said. ‘She’s a bald-faced liar,’ he stated said.
In an interview on Good Morning America on Thursday, Manigault said that she witnessed behavior in the White House that made her ‘uncomfortable,’ and that it contributed to her departure.
After her interview, ABC News’ Robin Roberts’ trashed Omarosa, suggesting that she’s nothing more than an insignificant, attention-grabbing, personality when Roberts’ remarked on her exit from the White House by saying “Bye Felicia!”
Going further in an interview with Nightline, she claimed fellow aides did not know how to work with minorities. Manigault said then that it was ‘lonely’ to work in the White House, where she was the only senior, African-American woman.
Upon hearing that bit for the first time, Taylor, head of TCMF, an umbrella organization for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, laughed out loud.
‘I can tell you she wasn’t busy working to get others in there,’ he said. ‘If you had the influence if you had the ear of the president, why didn’t you have a role in getting more African-Americans in there?’
Taylor said Manigault’s constant claim that she was the only high-ranking African-American in Trump’s White House ‘annoyed’ others blacks who wanted to work there because she propped herself up as the ‘gatekeeper’ to the administration
‘Perhaps if you had used the year to increase the number of others, then you wouldn’t be alone,’ he said.
Craig, a young Republican who launched the Ready for Kanye PAC who is the vice chair of the Maryland Republican Party, said Manigault was totally disengaged from the community of black Republicans she was supposed to be working within her role as communications director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
She’s ‘metaphorically given us the finger’ since about a month from the convention, Craig said. ‘She’s making sure black Republicans were held to an almost impossible standard.’
‘She was a major roadblock and speed bump to a lot of black Republicans getting into that administration,’ he added. –Daily Mail
