The firing heard around the world is still making noise one day later. Omarosa says she resigned from her job as White House Director of Communications for the Public Liaison (and no, we still don’t know what her job was), but people still have questions like ‘you say resigned, but do you mean fired’?
So to control some of the damage, Omarosa used her communications skills from her previous job to get on national TV and tell her side of things. In what’s being called an “explosive exit interview” (realclearpolitics.com) with Good Morning America, Omarosa insists she resigned because she was not pleased with some of the President’s actions. Omarosa said, “I have to be very careful about how I answer this but there were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with, that I was very uncomfortable with, things that I observed, that I heard, that I listened to,” One of those things she was reportedly unhappy about was the Charlottesville protest in which Trump refused to condemn the neo-Nazis and White supremacists.
Omarosa baited viewers with the promise of details soon in her “profound story” which sounds like a book pitch. GMA anchor Robin Roberts wrapped up the segment and dismissed Omarosa with a hilariously incisive “Bye Felicia” which Omarosa later called “petty” according to People.com and added, “it’s a black woman civil war“.
Omarosa may think Black women are out to get her because it was a Black female reporter who broke the story that she was fired and dragged—er, escorted from the grounds…
My sources were right @Omarosa45 tried to get into or break into the residence. She tripped the alarms of the residence. Lawd help!! She was fired

And Ryan isn’t backing down from her sources or her story. How she ended up on the unemployment line isn’t clear, but one thing is clear. Omarosa is wrong thinking that Black women are the only ones who don’t like her…clearly judging from the internet, men and women of all ages, races and political affiliations don’t care for her.
It’s hilarious she thought she could be the White Supremacist House’s Black “Outreach” lead. She thought after she spent years acting like she was better than us- BLACK PEOPLE- we’d accept her & let her use us like pawns for trump & his KKK & pedophilia supporting admin.

Omarosa, I’m sorry you got fired. At least you still have until tomorrow to sign up for health insurance at https://t.co/x7Clrwp6Ta

Folks keep asking what exactly Omarosa’s job was. It was to engage in disingenuous outreach to Black community & serve as a Black face the WH could point to when accused of racism. She was the Chief WH Black Friend

Her dismissal doesn’t threaten diversity in the White House. She represented one-half of two high profile positions(Ben Carson the other half) filled by African Americans. That’s not diversity, it’s tokenism.
There are those who may buy into Omarosa’s ‘I was the only in the African American woman in this White House assistant to the president” looking out for you people’, but before you swallow that Kool aid, you have to ask exactly what did Omarosa do with that position? Did she fight for minorities or against them? Did she help any people of color? Did she help any women of any color? Did she help any one other than herself to a salary of $179,000? No, Omarosa you worshipped the man you thought had all the power and threatened others with this crazy “bow down to worship” at the feet of Trump…
Omarosa’s sickening syncophantic allegiance to Trump is just one of the things that rubs people the wrong way. She’s a liar who said she worked as a top official in the Clinton-Gore White House. A PEOPLE 2004 investigation discovered that “Her exact title was scheduling correspondent. Her job was to respond to invitations.” Not only that but, “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble,” said the former staffer”.
Omarosa comes off as bossy, pretentious, opportunistic,egotistical and self aggrandizing. Traits she seems to have in common with her former boss.
If a civil war is coming Omarosa, it won’t just be with Black women. You can bet, you will be on the wrong side of it just like you were in the last presidential election.
