“Good Morning America”’s Robin Roberts is not impressed with former White House employee, Omarosa Manigault Newman, and “her story.”
And Roberts didn’t hold back her thoughts, “She said she has a story to tell, I’m sure she’ll be selling that story,” she said on Thursday morning’s episode.
Adding a quick, “Bye, Felicia.”
Roberts’ comments came after an interview “GMA” co-host Michael Strahan had with Manigault Newman on Thursday morning about, what she calls, her resignation. “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 Newman, a season one contestant on President Donald Trump’s show “The Apprentice”, was the White House’s director of communications.
Since Wednesday, there have been many conflicting reports on whether Manigault Newman was fired or resigned.
Despite White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump’s public wishes of success to Manigault Newman, it is rumoured she didn’t leave quietly.
April Ryan, a journalist with American Urban Radio Networks, reported that Manigault Newman yelled profanities after learning that White House chief of staff John Kelly had fired her – she was allegedly removed from the premises.
“I resigned and I didn’t do that in the residence, as is being reported,” she told “GMA”.
Manigault Newman isn’t happy with Roberts’ comment on “GMA” Thursday morning, and is calling out Roberts for the uncalled for comment.
“That was petty,” she told Inside Edition. “It’s a black woman civil war.”
