Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, December 14, 2017

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. 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.

Manigault Newman, who made headlines for taking her 39-person bridal party to the White House for a photo shoot in April, is still on government payroll through January 20. But on Wednesday she was taking her mother to Washington's Bible museum before bringing her to the White House later in the day to see the holiday decorations there -- "in addition to doing work," the source said.

What qualification did she have for being there in the first place? This administration is a complete joke.

"What qualification did she have for being there in the first place?"

She probably let Trump grab her by the -----. Nonetheless, that was a hard way to find out that all those sweet nothings he whispered in her ear didn't mean a thing.

She knew he was a snake when she met him, what did she expect?

I am sorry, but I have not one ounce of sympathy for her. You associate with creeps like Trump and expect things to work out well? Obviously you know going in that he is bad for most Americans and yet you don't care and then expect us to sympathize with you when the creep turns on you? Sorry, I'm laughing.

Supposedly she was getting paid $180,000 a year. If I thought for a minute that Trump could get it up, I'd say he was banging her (on the taxpayer's tab)

The headline gives the impression that she was escorted out of the WH by RuPaul.

"[Chief of staff] John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised, and as a result, I resigned," Manigault said on ABC News' "Good Morning America."

There "were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with," she said.

"But when I have my story to tell, as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear," Manigault added.

But she added, "Certainly I had more access than most, and people had problems with that. People had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president."

Come on already. Where is 101Chairborne's take on this event. I read through this whole stupid thread to get his take on the caustic black lady being forcibly dragged out of the White House. Don't let me down. Comedians and pundits rarely get such perfect underhanded softball pitches served to them.

Trump fires the only black woman in the White House on the same night that black women were bigly responsible for handing him a uuge loss in Alabama. I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

"No...the Dotard demands much younger victims."

The older he gets the younger they look. At $180,000 a year I'd call that "on retainer." So there's that.

She was on The Apprentice three times. Three times! She was so close to winning 'pretend project manager for a year'.

Maybe she asked for a raise in salary. Those trysts with Trump must be exhausting . . . not mention soul wrenching.

In the 1990s, Manigault worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration.

Hmm..I wonder if it bothered you what her "qualifications" were when she worked for a Democrat?

And it might be a little racist that you would even ask about her qualifications..
