The move comes after sources purportedly told the Daily News that “Kelly was unhappy with Manigault’s influence on the President and her ability to get him worked up over hot topics” back in September. Most likely, Omarosa got on Kelly’s bad side in a similar fashion as Bannon had earlier this year: by relaying messages from the base back to the White House. John Kelly fired Steve Bannon back in August.
Understandably, Omarosa did not take the news from Kelly well. Via Daily News“
Kelly did the firing and Manigault “acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump,” sources told American Urban Radio Networks’ April Ryan.
Manigault had to be escorted from the building after Kelly told her she was out, Ryan said.
One of Kelly’s priorities since taking over for Reince Priebus has been to strictly control who gets to see the President and how Trump gets information.
Manigault, commonly referred to as just Omarosa, appeared on the 2004 season of the President’s reality show and earned a reputation as a ruthless competitor.
As she was a fierce defender of President Trump and an incredible ally to the American public, we look forward to seeing Omarosa maintain her fight outside the administration.
