A contestant on the first season of the USA edition of The Apprentice, the President's former reality TV show, Ms Manigault Newman had always been unpopular with several senior West Wing officials, including Mr Kelly and Mr Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. He and Kelly should have had the basic courtesy to let us watch the real-life sh*tshow departure.
While Newman reportedly resigned, some suspect she may have been fired.
According to Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief April Ryan, Omarosa got into some kind of conflict with White House officials, who then had her escorted from the building. Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, has sought to impose more discipline among Trump's staff and limit their communications with the president. He's already signed off on my decision.
She described Manigault Newman as "a mood changer" for Trump. Kelly's reaction is unknown but presumably he bust out laughing.
Omarosa Resigns From White House
CNN host Brooke Baldwin had Rye, White House reporter April Ryan and former Bernie Sanders campaign communications director Symone Sanders on to discuss the drama behind Omarosa leaving the Trump administration.
The Secret Service issued a statement late Wednesday saying it was "not involved in the termination process or the escort off of the complex". She wasn't kicked out, sources tell BuzzFeed. She also worked with Trump's transition team.
The White House said last week that deputy national security adviser Dina Powell will leave the administration early next year.
Jamil Smith, a contributing opinion columnist for the Los Angeles Times who writes frequently about race, said Manigault Newman had lost any significant standing within the black community.More news: Mobile US (TMUS) Bond Prices Fall 1.3% Insider Trade
Her departure comes as the Trump administration is reeling from the defeat of Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race by Doug Jones. "I said, 'You better back up'". Trump can't fire her, she quits.
Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. In practice, no one really knew what Omarosa did. She struggled to help Trump build a relationship with African-Americans, who have consistently given the president low approval ratings. "No clue", said a GOP source when asked. For all of this she was paid $180,000 a year, the maximum salary for a White House aide.

Thank you Omarosa for your service! One of his core concerns as chief of staff has been trying to control the flow of information to Trump. Before that, Reince Priebus banned Omarosa from several meetings. Kelly is the gatekeeper and the president's on a schedule. She is credited with bunching President Trump's undies for whole days at a time. The agency confirmed that a pass granting her access to the complex had been deactivated.
