Building Her Backstory: Omarosa Laments the Lack of “Diversity” in the Trump White House
OH… we knew this was coming.
So I told you earlier today about Omarosa Maginault Newman preparing to spill the beans on all those “disturbing” things she saw in the White House, before being unceremoniously bounced by John Kelly – then later by the Secret Service, after she tried to storm into the White House residence and tripped the security alarms.
She denies she was escorted off of the property, flailing and cursing like a mad woman.
The White House denies it, saying she resigned and her final day would be January 20, 2018.
The Secret Service denied they dragged her off the property, but did confirm that her security pass had been deactivated.
Um… her last day is January 20, so why deactivate her security pass?
Oh, yeah. Because they’re not letting her back on the property.
The caustic reality TV star has apparently been fine to work in the administration for all this time, but speaking to Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America” earlier today, she brought up the so-called “disturbing things.”
I said this morning that her next stop is a tell-all book.
So what do you think is going to be in that book?
Well, if her later comments are any indication, she’s going to talk about how lonely she was:
“It has been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff,” Maginault Newman told ABC News‘ “Nightline” on Thursday.
“There was a lack of diversity that I will acknowledge,” she added, saying it “was very lonely.”
Do I think she was lonely?
Not hardly. She was loving it. She’d managed to weasel her way into a prime spot within a presidential administration, and as yet, nobody is really sure what she did for the past 11 months.
“I regret that we haven’t reached the level of diversity in this administration that I strove to see,” she said, a comment that Huckabee Sanders rebuffed in a Thursday briefing.
When we next hear from Omarosa, she will have rebranded herself as some kind of warrior for diversity.
And the book is going to be something special. I can just about guarantee that. Everybody from the White House that she’s dealt with for the past year is going to feel a long blade in their backs. That’s just Omarosa’s trademark.
President Trump may end up with the longest blade, of all, and that’s going to be equally interesting.
Something about, “You knew I was a scorpion when you took me for a pet.”
