April Ryan Claims Omarosa Was Fired by White House; Proceeded to Act a Fool

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders recently confirmed whispers that former reality star Omarosa Manigault-Newman will soon be leaving the Trump administration, telling The Associated Press that her official resignation will become effective Jan. 20.

While it may seem like a clean break one year after the inauguration, journalist April Ryan claims Manigault-Newman didn’t resign, but was fired, and didn’t take the news very well.

“According to multiple sources Omarosa did not resign. She was even escorted out of [the] building and off campus,” tweeted the White House reporter. She went on to say the 43-year-old is alleged to have caused a scene while leaving the premises.

“Sources say General Kelly did the firing and Omarosa is alleged to have acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump. The word is General Kelly had it and got rid of her. I heard there was drama and she was escorted out of the building and off campus.”

Ryan later acknowledged the White House’s claims that the Apprentice star signed a resignation letter while maintaining she has credible sources who witnessed the reverend cursing the administration’s name.

See the full breakdown from Ryan below.

Manigault-Newman joined the administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison.

Born and raised in Compton, California, Jessica Bennett began her career as an intern at The Oakland Post, and later, The Source Magazine. She went on to write for respected hip hop publications such as DJ Booth and Hip Hop DX before becoming the Urban Editor of pop culture website, Wetpaint.com. She joined Ebony as the Entertainment Editor August 2017. Bennett has interviewed such names as Vanessa Williams, Spike Lee, Tyra Banks, Forest Whitaker, Magic & Cookie Johnson and several others.
