Omarosa Manigault will probably be the next “contestant” booted from the White House, the media reports.
White House sources conveyed to the New York Daily News that President Donald Trump, who loves Manigault because of her fierce loyalty to him, doesn’t want to tell the Office of Public Liaison “You’re fired!” but that he wouldn’t try to stop Manigault from walking out if she decided to quit.
“Her days are numbered, but Trump is trying to give her time to resign,” the source told the Daily News, who cite her lack of qualifications and penchant for creating conflict as reasons why she should no longer be employed at the White House.
Manigault helped make “The Apprentice” the phenomenon it was with her boisterous and outrageous behavior. First making her appearance on the show in 2004, Trump made her the first contestant to be brought back for another chance on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008. Afterwards, Trump stumped hard for her to get her own her own reality show on TV One.
Another sign that she’s on her way out? Manigault’s office is located in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building at 1650 Pennsylvania Ave. instead of the White House because of her proclivity for conflict and causing havoc in meetings.
Manigault has been steadily moved from the inner circle ever since John Kelly became the president’s chief of staff on July 31, according to Confidential. It was not a good look that Manigault created controversy at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans. She deliberately baited the panel hosts into unnecessary arguments while simultaneously evading questions about the man she represents.
Sources said racial tension after the white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia days later probably helped keep her in the position, the Daily News reports.
To add injury to insult, before the mercurial Steve Bannon quit his job as President Trump’s chief strategist, the same sources conveyed to the NYDN that he refused to meet up with Manigault because of her nasty disposition.
Perhaps sensing her dwindling influence in the Oval Office, Manigault maintained her relevance by getting Trump fired up by showing him inflammatory topics and newspaper headlines, which incited him to go off on many of his Twitter rants. This put her at constant conflict with former press secretary Sean Spicer.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders says the Daily News’ sources are “totally false and made up accusations.”
Manigault was unavailable for comment on this story.
