NY Post cover shows illustration of Omarosa being dragged out of the White House: ‘No marosa’
BY REBECCA SAVRANSKY
The cover of Thursday’s New York Post shows a photoshopped image made to look like Omarosa Manigault Newman being dragged out of the White House.
The cover shows Manigault Newman trying to hold on, while a hand is pulling at her foot.
The headline reads: “No ‘marosa.”
Underneath the larger headline, the cover reads: “Reality start ‘dragged out’ of White House.”
American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan on Wednesday said Manigault Newman “did not resign.”
“She was even escorted out of [t]he building and off campus,” Ryan reported, citing multiple sources.
“She was very upset and said she wanted to speak to the president. According to sources, Gen. Kelly said the president was already informed and he signed off,” Ryan said in her report.
“Sources say General Kelly did the firing and Omarosa is alleged to have acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump,” Ryan also tweeted. “The word is General Kelly had it and got rid of her.”
Ryan and Manigault Newman are former friends, but have a history of disputes while working at Trump’s White House.
Her tweets came hours after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Manigault Newman tendered her resignation, and that her last day at the White House would be next month.
Ryan noted the White House is disputing reports that Manigault Newman was escorted out of the building by security.
CBS News also reported that Manigault Newman was fired, noting she attempted to enter the White House residence and subsequently set off the alarms.
Previously, Manigault Newman was a reality TV star and contestant on season 1 of “The Apprentice,” the NBC reality show formerly hosted by Trump.
Early Thursday, Manigault Newman pushed back on the report that she was fired from her job in a contentious confrontation with chief of staff John Kelly and escorted off the White House grounds.
“I resigned and I didn’t do that in the residence, as is being reported,” she told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
