Omarosa Manigault Newman to Leave White House
Big news out of the White House this morning, right on the heels of last night’s stunning upset in the Alabama Senate race.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, has announced she will be leaving the White House starting next year, on the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. The exact day will be January 20th, 2018.

NBC just broke the news: “The White House says Omarosa Manigault Newman — one of President Donald Trump’s most prominent African-American supporters — plans to leave the administration next month.”
This is the latest White House shakeup, and comes just days after it was announced that Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser for strategy, will be leaving the Trump administration starting next year.
It’s common for there to be a lot of turnover in a new White House, especially after the first year. With a new president comes a new governing style. Growing pains come along with any new administration, and this will give the Trump Administration the ability to be flexible and adjust to the needs of the American people.
Of course, the liberal media will paint this as more evidence of the Trump presidency crumbling, but that will be a huge lie.
Some folks on Twitter joked that this announcement has something to do with Roy Moore’s loss in the Alabama Senate race. That’s not true. But it does make for another intriguing news story:
KELLY: Someone's got to take the fall for Roy Moore.
JARED: What about Omarosa.
COHN: Yeah, Omarosa
KELLYANNE: Omarosa definitely

Omarosa was originally connected with Trump through his Apprentice reality television show. She was one of the most contentious contestants on the program.
Omarosa also got in hot water recently for having a photoshoot with her bridesmaids and family in the White House, breaking many security protocols.
This is a breaking news story. Share it with your friends and family now to keep them informed!
UPDATE – Some reporters are claiming that Omarosa was, in fact, fired from her position:
On Omarosa's exit: I just talked to sources who tell me Omarosa was let go yesterday and that she was escorted off of the White House grounds by security. They say she is now calling friends saying that she left voluntarily because her year anniversary was coming up.

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 a General Kelly had it and got rid of her.
