Former White House aide Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman has caused an uproar with a new tell-all book about her experiences in the White House. However, she may be regretting bringing so much attention to herself, because a skeleton has emerged from her past. Now, her entire case against President Donald Trump has been totally discredited.
Fired by Donald Trump once again and grasping at straws now that she was out of a job, Omarosa decided to do what others have done after being booted from Trump’s White House — write a “tell-all” book about the president and his family, complete with rumors and slanderous claims, none of which can be confirmed.
With Omarosa’s integrity already in question, a skeleton from her past has surfaced which will surely be the final nail in the coffin for her already tarnished reputation.
According to The Daily Caller, the Trump White House is not the first to be unsatisfied with Omarosa’s work performance. Despite her complaints that she was treated poorly in the Trump White House during her tenure, “numerous” staffers for Vice President Al Gore’s office have come forward to say that Omarosa was a terrible employee for the then-vice president.
Omarosa held four jobs within two years when she worked for the Clinton administration. At 24-years-old, she scored an entry-level, $25,000-per-year post replying to invitations for Vice President Al Gore. There, she left a mound of 13 months-worth of unanswered correspondence addressed to Gore below her desk. One former staffer said, “She didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble.”
Mary Margaret Overbey, Gore’s former office administrator, had no love for Omarosa, saying, “She was the worst hire we ever made,” according to PEOPLE.
Omarosa was then moved to the Clinton White House to the position of deputy associate director of presidential personnel. She lasted eight months in that job before she was transferred out of the White House altogether to the Commerce Department. There, Cheryl Shavers, who served as the Department’s undersecretary for technology, described Omarosa as “unqualified and disruptive,” so she “had her removed.” Shavers also said in 2004 that Omarosa was so terrible “one woman wanted to slug her.”
Not only has Omarosa found it difficult to hold down a job for what appears to be the entirety of her adult life, she looks to have embellished her job titles, tasks, and work performance on her resume, as well. Sources repeatedly disputed her claims, including a Howard University spokesman who said she was, in fact, a “facilitator and presenter” and never a professor at the school.
Now that the truth has surfaced, revealing that Omarosa squandered the opportunity of working for two separate presidential administrations, one thing is for certain — she will never, ever be given the chance to work in the White House again. Heck, she’ll be lucky to get any job at all after the entire world learns what a bad employee she is.
But unemployment may actually be the least of Omarosa’s worries, as she could now find herself in some very serious legal trouble, thanks to her trainwreck of a book tour. The White House is looking at whether she violated the law by taping Chief of Staff John Kelly in the Situation Room.
Moreover, the Trump campaign has filed legal action against her for violating a non-disclosure agreement that she signed in 2016. All of her shameless attempts at promoting her book may ultimately end up costing her any profits — and could even land her in jail.
