Omarosa Manigault Newman dishes on the West Wing, on Celebrity Big Brother
Media reports say Omarosa Manigault Newman, [photo], former director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, was fired from her West Wing position after she used the White House car service to get to and from work.
Politico reported Tuesday that Manigault was fired by chief of staff John Kelly over her usage of CARPET, the White House car service, as “an office pick-up and drop-off service.” Such usage is banned by the federal government.
Reports in December said Manigault was “physically dragged” out of the White House after Kelly told her it was time for her to step down as the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison.

Manigault reportedly became angry and said she wanted to speak with the president, but Kelly told her President Trump had already “signed off” on her employment status. Manigault then walked over to the White House residence to try to get in to speak with Trump, but she set off an electronic Secret Service wire that monitors the residence, Politico reported.
A Wall Street Journal report cited a White House official saying Manigault was “physically dragged and escorted off campus.”

The Secret Service said in December its agents had not escorted former “Apprentice” star and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman off campus after she was let go.
After leaving the White House, Manigault joined “Celebrity Big Brother,” and has been dishing on what it’s like to work for Trump.
Manigault, a former contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” which Trump hosted for years, left the White House in December after a brief stint as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
In her recent outburst, on the Celebrity Big Brother set she told Americans pining for the impeachment of President Donald Trump that they should reconsider their wishes, because Vice President Mike Pence is “scary.”
“Can I just say this? As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Manigault told her housemates on the show. The sacked former White House aide scoffed at the Vice president’s penchant for believing that Jesus Christ tells him to say certain things.
“I’m Christian, I love Jesus, she said, “but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things — I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ Scary.”
