Ex-'Apprentice' Star Omarosa to Tell All About White House

Ex-'Apprentice' Star Omarosa to Tell All About White House

"I was mortified." Thomas said he asked her to massage his feet, which she did because she "didn't know that I could say no", and he made suggestive comments, which she ignored.

"What's fascinating to me about the Trump White House in general, is that traditionally in politics when you're staffing for a principal one of the main things you want are people that are not going to be seen and not be heard and fade into the background", McCain shared.

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

Omarosa says she quit the White House but it's with a large group of black people in homes all over America she found herself with at odds Thursday.

Whoopi Goldberg excoriated Omarosa on "The View" and pointedly said the fired White House official is "nasty" to women of color.

Ryan was among the first reporters to provide details about Omarosa's ouster from the White House.

That's what the former aide to President Donald Trump told Good Morning America anchor Michael Strahan Thursday morning. Instead she said, she and Kelly sat down in the situation room and had "a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I've had and issues that I've raised and as a result I resigned". We look forward to hearing her side. "We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the press corps.

Retired Devin Hester, on if he deserves Hall of Fame nod: 'Absolutely'
I'll always remember the noise y'all made whenever I hit the open turf at Soldier (Field) - never heard anything quite like it. Nineteen of those TD returns came in eight seasons with the Bears , where he also played wide receiver.

Trump tweeted his support for Manigault-Newman, despite her quick exit. A newlywed, she said she had a goal to make it to the administration's one-year mark and then "get back to my life".

But Newman appeared to support Trump and denied he was a racist: "Yes, I will acknowledge numerous exchanges, particularly in the last six months, have been racially charged", Newman reportedly said.

"It has been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff", Newman said to ABC News' "Nightline" on Thursday.

Her resignation from her job as director of communications for the office of the public liaison is effective January 20.

She pushed back against reports that she and Kelly had a blow up at a holiday event, saying they were "100 per cent false". "People had problems with our 14-year relationship", she said.

Manigault Newman, who drew a top salary of $179,700, was a high-profile Trump supporter during the presidential campaign and the transition.

Unfortunately, unlike the three times the former reality show contestant was sacked on The Apprentice, there were no video cameras around to clue us in on the juicy details.
