Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman was the highest ranking African-American in the White House last year. She was fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelley in 2017 who told her that, “everyone on the staff works for me, not the President.”
Now, she is making her media rounds as she prepares to release her tell-all book about her time in the White House. She sat down with PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff and says she had a “blind spot” for Donald Trump and that the man she met in 2003 was not the same man currently in the White House.
In the discussion Omarosa notes how she did not have a father figure so she admired the success of Donald Trump. Is she not inspired by the countless stories of African-American people? Those who strived towards success, despite the ugly ills of racism and calculated exclusion?
I think that Omarosa’s current situation is very important for African-American’s to analyze and note. Here is the same woman who told us that every critic would have to ‘bow down” to Trump and accept his presidency. The SAME woman! Now she wants us to have sympathy because white supremacy let her know that she only served one purpose during the campaign.
The white men in the White House let her know quick that her services would no longer be needed. I’m not buying that book, or the B.S this woman is currently selling on the airwaves.
