This writer knows the title is a bit confusing. Maybe even an oxymoron. But, it’s in line with the tone of the White House. President Donald J. Trump backed Judge Roy Moore of Alabama to replace Jeff Sessions in the Senate. When Moore lost on Tuesday, Dec. 12, but failed to concede, Trump congratulated his Democratic opponent Doug Jones for the win on Twitter. Flummoxed much? So is the rest of America.
He wrote, “Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!”
The White House issued a statement today saying “Apprentice” star turned director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. Omarosa Manigault Newman, 43, will leave the Trump administration next month.
It reads: “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
There are reports that she was actually axed for bringing her 39-person bridal party inside the White House this past spring for an “extended” photo shoot in the Rose Garden.
Manigault was a contestant in the first season of Donald Trump’s original American version of “The Apprentice.”
In January 2008, she competed in the first season of The Apprentice’s sequel show, “Celebrity Apprentice. In June 2010, she co-created with Trump a dating show called “The Ultimate Merger” where a dozen men competed for her love. In February 2013, Manigault returned to television for “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”
According to CNN White House correspondent April Ryan, Omarosa showed her a$$ and was escorted off the grounds. Check out Ryan’s Twitter timeline below.
