What do you get when you cross a fame seeking, money grubber with a fake conservative who only believes what will get her the next payday? Who is Omarosa? Correct. This train wreck was predictable from the beginning. I don’t blame Omarosa she only did what she does latching onto the coattails of someone she thinks can help her achieve her dreams of grandeur. Prior to her White House gig her only claim to fame was, The Apprentice where she also found herself fired. On the show she exhibited the same acerbic characteristics she would later exhibit in her duties at the White House. Exactly what those duties were and what her job description entailed is still a mystery.

Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa is putting the White House on notice as she makes her exit: She has “quite a story to tell” about her time in President Donald Trump’s administration and “the world will want to hear it.”

Accustomed to the spotlight, Omarosa Manigault Newman appeared on national television Thursday to push back against reports that she was fired from her job as a Trump assistant and director of communications for a White House office that deals with constituent groups.KCTV 5

The fact she made it to the White House says more about her former boss Donald Trump than about Omarosa. His lack of judgment in hiring her tells me he fell for her con job or his reach into the black community was woefully deficient. Maybe Trump saw some of himself in Ms. Manigault considering they share a lot of the same character traits. Both former Democratic supporters and both willing to do or say anything to get publicity. Choosing Ms. Manigault as your go to outreach person for black people is like asking General Custer to mediate between the Sioux tribes.  It will not end well, and it did not. there was the democratic socialist who viewed her as a sell-out, but the conservative blacks found her appointment just as bewildering. Who was she and what credentials did she possess? We now know she possessed none of the credentials of a White House staffer besides an acerbic tongue and a penchant for drama. Demonstrated by her dramatic exit.

She also denied reports that she made a spectacle of herself while being escorted from the White House grounds, calling the stories “100 percent false” and questioning why photos or video of her alleged misbehavior had yet to surface.

“When I have a chance to tell my story … quite a story to tell, as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people,” she said. “And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”CNN

Upon leaving her position she offers veiled threats to write a tell-all book about her experiences in the White House within the walls of power for a poor black woman. The problem is she never ascended to power and had limited access to Trump during her White House tenure according to most sources. It reminds me of other former neutral colored blacks (O.J.Simpson & Michael Jackson) who when they fell from grace from their adopted white society they screamed racism. Both had limited interaction with blacks before their falls from grace, but it good to have the race card in your back pocket when you need it. Always the self-promoter she turned a manufactured position (White House Office of Public Liaison) into a senior policy position. There are many blacks who are reviling in her demise, it’s sad to watch publically as she desperately attempts to cling to what little dignity she has left. I can see her being paraded out during the mid-terms as some jilted lover seeking revenge. But, I guess true to his nature Trump got to call her and say Omarosa, you’re fired for one last time.
