Ever since Omarosa Manigault was hired by the Trump administration, she has been the most prominent of “Trump’s blacks,” even though no one can explain what she actually does inside the White House. Was she hired to reach out to black America? Is she simply a token employed to give the Trump administration street cred? Is she in charge of seasoning chicken?
Well, apparently, she is a mixture of Rose from 227, Willona from Good Times and your cousin whose phone conversations always begin with, “Guurl, guess what I heard!”
According to a New York Times report, White House chief of staff John Kelly has installed longtime aide Kirstjen Nielsen as his No. 2, tasking her with bringing order to a White House that has apparently been run like a bouncy castle at a 6-year-old’s birthday party. One of Nielsen’s first priorities is putting Manigault in her place.
According to sources inside the
cross-burning dumpster fire called “the Trump administration,” Manigault had a habit of showing up unannounced at important meetings, sitting down and making herself comfortable. As assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, Manigault is technically one of Orange Sherbert Stalin’s numerous “aides,” and had no business at many of those high-level meetings, but since she was unofficially Trump’s Secretary in Charge of Black Shit, no one said anything.
But not anymore.
Since the reality star obviously never learned the most important rule of friends with presidential benefits, the new White House let Manigault know that she can’t just pop up without calling first. Nielsen sent out a “Stay in Your Lane” memo to Trump’s staff, and Manigault was the main Negress on the list. In describing her duties, the Times said of Nielsen:
She is also responsible for keeping Mr. Kelly’s no-fly list of aides he deems to be unfit to attend serious meetings, the most prominent of whom is Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” star with an ill-defined job and a penchant for dropping into meetings where she was not invited.
Manigault also was known for “triggering” Trump by sharing negative news reports with the president. Manigault’s gossip would reportedly infuriate Trump, causing him to stew about it all day. She allegedly shared MSNBC’s negative coverage via his personal phone, which inspired the famously disgusting tweet about Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski’s plastic surgery.
Now that she has been deemed “unfit” to sit among the real decision-makers at the White House, the Apprentice star can presumably get back to the hard work of stepping and fetching for which she has become famous.
