It’s day two of the Omarosa Manigault news cycle … and (quelle surprise), there is a Jacksonville connection.
Manigault, the wife of Jacksonville pastor John Allen Newman, was a local connection to the White House.
However, since the advent of the tenure of White House chief of staff John Kelly, Manigault was on her way out.
She’s still on the payroll (at a $179,700 a year salary) through Jan. 20; however, she will be working — so to speak — remotely, as her access to White House grounds was cut off.
With time on her hands, Manigault cut an interview Thursday with Good Morning America, in which she hinted at revelations to come about the Donald Trump administration.
There “were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with,” Manigault 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,” the former Trump aide added.
Manigault once said that “every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump.”
But that was then; now she is joining the critics and detractors.
