Did you remember that Omarosa Manigault is the Tr*mp administration’s director of communications for the Office of the Public Liaison? That’s okay, because I forgot too. When you’re watching a tire fire, you tend to forget what exactly is burning and focus on the broader implications. However, it is true that a former The Apprentice cast member was given a senior position in The White House, because that’s what happens when you vote in a bloated reality corpse to the highest office in the land.
At any rate, Manigault is the director of communications for the Office of the Public Liaison and Tr*mp’s African-American outreach spokesperson. What does that mean, exactly? Manigault is supposed to speak with African-American voters to get them on the Tr*mp Train. She’s also supposed to get the public to support the president, help to organize community group events at The White House, and attend events and conferences where she can promote the president’s agenda.
What has Manigault done while in her position? Well, word is that Chief of Staff John Kelly has limited her access to Tr*mp because she would bring him news articles that would enrage him, and burst into meetings in order to gossip and be an idiot.
According to Politico“Manigault has been seen as a particular problem in the office — with several high-profile incidents, including an August appearance at a National Association of Black Journalists panel in New Orleans in which she tangled with the moderator and got heckled by audience members for defending Trump. She also stoked a mini-controversy in June by signing invitations for Congressional Black Caucus members to meet Trump as the “Honorable Omarosa Manigault.”“.
Also, she arrived at The White House unannounced with a 39-person bridal party to take photos.
In April, Manigault burst into The White House in her bridal gown and with her wedding entourage in tow. The group surprised security officials and other senior aides as they loudly wandered around the Rose Garden and the rest of the property taking photos. Unlike the photos of Tr*mp’s paying “friends” at his various businesses, Manigault was banned from posting her wedding photo shoot pictures to social media because of security and ethical concerns.
This hasn’t been helpful to the Office of the Public Liaison, which is seen as one of the more poorly run departments in this administration. That is a feat in and of itself, when you have an education secretary that thinks we need guns in school to keep bears away and a president that thinks samurais should have shot down missiles.
Stay classy, Omarosa. You keep doing your evil idiot bit and we’ll keep forgetting you exist until we realize you’re about to be fired. Again.
