Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Elaina Plott, The Daily Beast: It's nearly 9 a.m. in the West Wing lobby. The room is quiet save for two staff assistants whispering about weekend plans, and me, waiting on an over-firm red sofa to meet with Omarosa Manigault. ... There's been some confusion about Omarosa's precise role in this White House. She is formally the communications director for the Office of Public Liaison, the same office where Kal Penn of Harold & Kumar fame worked. But I wanted Omarosa to help me understand what keeps her busy during the workday and how one of the biggest reality stars of the early aughts -- apart from her own boss -- was reshaping the administration. ... Now a senior White House staffer banking the highest recorded salary allowable ($179,700 per year), Omarosa remains a mystery to many members of Washington's political class and even her White House colleagues. But on this particular Friday morning, Omarosa simply does not have the time to explain what, exactly, it is that she does.

It's tough to sneak in a question to Omarosa -- about her job, her life, her goals, about where exactly we are heading at this precise moment -- because we are always walking, quickly and seemingly aimlessly across the West Wing, and in and out of rooms at the EEOB. At some point we are looking for a certain Josh, though we don't ever locate him, and I never find out why he's needed. As we knock on the door to one office, she finally muffles an answer as to what we're doing: " ... the faith communities, does anyone need to be blessed ... " ...

After the abrupt end to our day in March, I called a Republican source in constant contact with the White House and asked what they thought Omarosa's job entailed. "No clue," the source said. I told the source about our whirlwind of a morning.

"No One Knows What Omarosa Does in White House"

I always figured she lurked under beds forever ready to bite ankles.

She walks around the White House constantly and claims to be looking for someone named Josh?

I think Omarosa might have binge-watched West Wing to fake how to act in the White House.

She is as competent in the White House as she was on the show.

She probably kisses Trumps ass. It's an activity he highly values.

Re#4- she was a contestant on trumps reality show. Mostly famous for being difficult to get along with.

There comes a time in a man's libido when he needs choices > Melania, > Hope Nicks, > Omarose Manignant.

Depending on what type of communications we're talking about here, a president can't have too many "communications" directors.

Type of communications? From Omarose's picture I see that she has two very well rounded assets to offer.

Yum, yum.

She is as competent as any other Trumplestiltskin nominee.

(Psst that's not a compliment to her)

I can tell you what she does...

She walks around and looks busy, at taxpayer expense.

Atleast she earns only 179K, not like 400K as our beloved T dumpkin... who does nothing to the country, but wastes taxpayers money....

She's in charge of editing President Trump's tweets?
Mission Accomplished!

She is in charge of Hillary deflections. That is a full-time job.

It used to just be a public job, but recently she was called upon to explain to Melania how donnie's impotence was caused by Hillary.

A friend of Trump's who gets given $180k because of it.

Trump is scum and his supporters are either idiots, ------, or both.

Omarosa is a perfect example of what happens to blacks who go off the democrat plantation. I don't remember any other black in the Obama administration getting this type of scrutiny.

While I do share in the questions of what she does everyday, this article is about as racist as you can get.

i love the use of the race card as a deflection away from a non-racial argument. I'm surprised you didn't go back to the old 'Hillary' deflection.

Well played!

that's because you were being racist by being not racist. How dare you question the content of a person's character instead of the color of their skin.

Yes, it is very racist to not know who someone is.

Is Ben Carson considered a "black" person by the CenterLeft?

Is there a conservative Black person the CenterLeft doesn't denigrate?

Except President Obama himself.

He was constantly scrutinized simply because he was black.

I will admit that i simply know nothing of Omarosa's character. She may be an exceedingly fine person, I really don't know or care.

However, I have a mind too. In my estimation, if she was an honest person of good character, she wouldn't work for Trump, regardless of her race.

If most people were of honesty and truth, they wouldn't be democrats, regardless of race.

I don't know why DR left wingers are crying over Boaz superficially playing the race card. It proves you are rubbing off on him!

Next thing you know, he'll adopt your Hillary Corollary and start referring to all criticism of this woman as "misogynist" no matter how specific to her behavior the criticism is.

You built that. Enjoy it.

Trouble with that comment, pfc. boaz, is that you wouldn't know honesty and truth if it hit you directly between the eyes.

You'd just accuse it of being another liberal conspiracy.

Is it racist to have never wanted to watch Trump's reality TV show? Cuz, apparently Omarosa's claim to fame was her appearances on that show. So that, in turn, makes us racists for not know who in the hell she is, nor care who she is. I didn't really know her race, I only know that I don't have any interest in a reality TV star of any kind. I don't watch any of it; Survivor, whatever that one is about the house, none of it. It's pure garbage.

I'm wondering if she might have had a hidden camera in the dressing room when she was on Pres Trump's reality TV show.

You never know what some discrete video might get for you in the future. Just ask Pres Putin.
