Omarosa Manigault Newman Denies White House Job Firing & Slams President Trump!

Former reality star turned political aide, Omarosa Manigault Newman, was supposedly fired — again!

On Wednesday, the former villain on “The Apprentice” reportedly threw a tantrum in the White House and demanded she be allowed to speak with President Trump as chief of staff John Kelly gave her the boot, sources told the Daily News.

“General Kelly didn’t allow her to speak to him. That’s why she was cursing and threatening,” according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Omarosa was then unceremoniously escorted from the West Wing.

“It got physical and she had to be removed,” the source said.

Trump painted Omarosa’s end in more magnanimous terms, tweeting, “Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success.”

The U.S. Secret Service pushed back against reports that its agents helped physically remove Omarosa from the White House, the service tweeted:

Omarosa’s departure from the Trump administration follows a string of controversies that mirror her former reality TV antics.

The two-time “Apprentice” villain turned senior White House official ruffled feathers when she reportedly brought members of her 39-person bridal party to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for an extended wedding photo shoot. The unannounced April visit to the White House — with Omarosa in full bridal gear — caught fellow senior aides and some security officials by surprise.

She married Pastor John Allen Newman later that month and former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks, attended the wedding. 

Reportedly in September, Kelly was unhappy with Omarosa’s influence on the President and her ability to get him worked up over hot topics.

Kelly cited many reasons, including Omarosa not getting along with the new head of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, for her dismissal.

Omarosa “acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump,” sources told American Urban Radio Networks’ April Ryan.

“And she said, ‘I brought the black vote.’ General Kelly said, ‘no, you did not. It’s not there,’” Ryan told CNN.

Omarosa then tried to enter the residence area of the White House and had to be escorted from the building, Ryan said.

Omarosa appeared on the 2004 season of the President’s reality show and earned a reputation as a ruthless competitor. She was “fired” by Trump during the run, but reappeared years later on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The 43-year-old joined Trump’s campaign early on and served as his director of African-American outreach. She later joined the administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, working on outreach to various constituency groups.

Omarosa earned $179,700 a year and worked in the Eisenhower office building near the White House.

“We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service,” Sanders said in a statement.

However, Omarosa denied she was fired from her White House position, insisting instead that she left on her own terms — but acknowledged being “uncomfortable,” “upset” and “unhappy” with the way President Donald Trump’s first year in office has unfolded.

In an interview on Thursday morning with ABC’s Good Morning AmericaOmarosa — whom a senior Trump administration official said was forced out her job — contended that she resigned as she approached her one-year mark in the White House.

“I resigned and I didn’t do that in the residence as reported,” Newman said. (Chief of Staff) John Kelly and I sat down in the Situation Room … and we had a very candid conversation,” she said. “I wanted to make the one-year mark,” Newman continued, “and then get back to my life.”

Ironically, Omarosa’s White House Twitter account still has her listed as “Assistant to President and Director of OPL Comms, The White House” — one day after the fallout.
