Information has started to come in on Omarosa Manigault‘s imminent departure from the White House, and the indications suggest that her resignation last night was an ugly affair.
White House correspondent April Ryan appeared on CNN today to talk about this development, and she noted that Manigault, a former friend of hers, was deeply unpopular among her colleagues within the administration. Ryan cited previous incidents where Manigault’s conduct rubbed admin officials the wrong way, and Ryan concluded that “she’s leaving because General Kelly was tired of it.”
Ryan reported that Manigault recently spoke with the chief of staff, and she was “vulgar, cursing, very animated” as they negotiated the terms of her departure next month. Kelly previously restricted Manigault’s walk-in access to Trump, and according to Ryan, she demanded to see the president and tried to access the White House residence. This led to the Secret Service getting involved and Manigault being escorted off the property.
“Security alerted General Kelly, he came back down, told Secret Service to take her out. She was escorted off the property.”
