According to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the reality TV villain resigned on Tuesday in order “to pursue other opportunities.” It’s said her resignation will not take place until AFTER the new year. Specifically, Omarosa will no longer work for the Oval Office on January 20, 2018.
On Manigault’s departure from the Trump team, Huckabee Sanders noted:
“We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
We can’t say we’re surprised that Omarosa is leaving the White House as her role in the administration was often left unclear. While her title was director of communications for the White House Public Liaison Office, it was widely reported that Manigault would often bust into meetings she was not invited to AND would regularly derail briefings.
There was also some drama, back in April, when Manigault showed up at the White House for an impromptu photo shoot with her bridal party. Smh.
Not to mention, upon taking the chief of staff job, John Kelly allegedly began cutting off the 43-year-old’s access to the president. This would explain why White House correspondent April Ryan has suggested that Omarosa’s ousting was far more dramatic than we may realize.
Ryan wrote on Twitter:
I heard there was drama and she was escorted out of the building and off campus
