Instead of hearing Trump’s famous catchphrase from the show, “You’re fired,” Omarosa Manigault has been told, “You’re hired!”
Manigault, who gained fame on the first season of NBC’s “The Apprentice,” has officially been hired for a White House position.
On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Manigault will focus on public engagement in her new White House role. This is not her first experience – she also worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration.
Saturday, Manigault claimed there would be a big announcement involving her role with the Trump administration when she spoke to Fox News during the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Times Square. She said “of course” she would be getting a role in the White House under Donald Trump, adding, “Mr. Trump is announcing my title on Tuesday and it’s huge. It’s huge.”

Manigault told reporters that she joined president-elect’s campaign as the director of African-American outreach because “he’s a winner,” and praised his ability to create his tremendously successful Trump brand. She said, “The first law of being around Donald is you understand the value of the name Trump, and he made Trump a worldwide brand by destroying 16 primary candidates and taking out Hillary Clinton.”
CNBC reported that she was a political appointee in the Clinton Administration and a registered Democrat until Trump officially announced he would run, and she then switched to the Republican Party.
Just as she played the villain on the NBC hit show and caused drama among contestants, she is back at it and creating quite a stir on social media:
@dcexaminer Isn't she the one who said everyone who didn't vote for Trump would have to bow down to him
