Omarosa Manigault Calls GMA Co-Host Robin Roberts ‘Petty’ For ‘Bye Felicia’ Remark
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Omarosa Manigault, who served as an aide to Donald Trump, got dismissed from her duties at The White House by General Kelly. However, she quickly responded to the reports saying that she actually resigned.
Many people have been struggling with trying to figure out what really went down. So, Omarosa decided to appear on “Good Morning America” to explain.
“When I have a chance to tell my story, Michael [Strahan] I have quite a story to tell,” Manigault said. “As the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that made me feel 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.”
Co-host Robin Roberts was not here for Omarosa at all and had a couple of words for her. Well, two to be specific:
Although Roberts didn’t say anything major, Omarosa was still very bothered by her comment. She responded back in an interview with Inside Edition saying,
“That was petty,” Omarosa told the publication exclusively when asked about Roberts’ remark. “It’s a black woman civil war.”
On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Omarosa had resigned.
“Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” Sanders said in a statement. “Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
As for the man who has now fired Omarosa at least three times, he was gracious in his goodbye.
“Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success,” Trump tweeted late Wednesday.
