A very calm and reasonable-sounding Omarosa Manigault Newman Thursday denied being dragging kicking and screaming out of the White House after being fired by White House Cheif of Staff John Kelly.
“I resigned, and I didn’t do that in the residence as being reported,” she told Good Morning America. “We had a very candid conversation” in the Situation Room, she said of her talk with Kelly. “I wanted to make the one-year mark … and get back to my life.”
“I like to hear all of these interesting tales,” she said, “but I have to tell you they’re 100 percent false.”
Several media outlets have reported that she was enraged when dismissed the evening of Roy Moore’s defeat in the Alabama Senate race. Omarosa opposed Trump’s support for Moore.
According to the Daily News:
Sources told multiple outlets, including the Daily News, that Kelly fired the former “Apprentice” villain, who became enraged when she was dismissed.
The longtime Trump confidant reportedly tripped an alarm at the White House residence in a bid to speak with the President.
She first tried to reason with senior aide and first daughter Ivanka Trump, CBS News reported, but had no luck.
Somehow Manigault Newman made it to the residences — usually a closed-off area — in a bid to speak with President Trump. Instead, she set off the alarms and was escorted out of the building, according to reports.
In the interview, Omarosa said she’s going to be quiet for now but promised to dish in the future about her role as the only black woman among President Trump’s top advisors.
