The ex-Apprentice star and now former White House aide has reportedly parted ways with her position— just shy of approaching her one year mark within the political realm. Her title was that of Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison. (Long story short, she was responsible for African-American outreach during and after the campaign).
Although Omarosa contends that she voluntarily stepped down from her position; Trump administration officials have reportedly confirmed that she was, in fact, forced out of her job. Her reported ousting was said to be at the hands of the Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly.
She has since categorically denied that she was fired, and instead stated she ‘resigned and didn’t do that in the residence as reported.’
During a sit down exit interview with Good Morning America (upon news of her departure), Omarosa stated that she had to be careful with her responses, because she had to go back and ‘work with these individuals.’ (She states that her resignation isn’t effective until January 20th)…but then dropped this bombshell:
“But when I have a chance to tell my story to tell – quite a story — as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people and when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
[Not sure how careful it is to drop a hint of a possible tell all on the White House and all of the shenanigans, but I digress.]
All in all, the star has generally acknowledged being ‘unhappy’ and ‘uncomfortable’ within her tenure in the White House, so it’ll be an interesting day when and even if her story truly hits the stands.
