Omarosa Manigault Throws Fit After Being Fired; Dragged Out Of The White House


Doug Jones’ upset in Alabama might not have been the only drama roiling the Trump White House on Tuesday night.

Multiple sources report that former Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman, whose resignation from her position with the Trump administration was announced Wednesday, did not leave the White House voluntarily and had to be physically restrained and escorted off the White House grounds.

And the Secret Service confirms that her White House access pass was deactivated, but White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Manigault Newman “resigned”—not effective until January 20, 2018. Sanders did not address who Manigault Newman will continue to earn her taxpayer-funded salary if she no longer has access to the White House compound.

April Ryan, a White House correspondent who has feuded with Manigault Newman, tells PEOPLE that there was “drama” that involved Manigault Newman “cussing” before she was removed.

A White House official also told the Washington Post that she did “not voluntarily resign” and was escorted off the premises, while the Wall Street Journal reports she was “physically dragged and escorted off the campus” Tuesday evening.

A source in Manigault Newman’s camp says the “assertions are not true” and that Trump “has a lot of respect and love for Omarosa. He would never do that, they have a 14-year relationship.”

The Secret Service weighed in late Wednesday to say their personnel didn’t do any escorting from the premises: “The Secret Service was not involved in the termination process of Ms. Manigault Newman or the escort off of the complex. Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual’s pass which grants access to the complex.” Read More
