Unwelcome Attention for John Kelly, the Man Enlisted to Bring Calm

  Unwelcome Attention for John Kelly, the Man Enlisted to Bring Calm President Trump is calling the chief of staff he pushed out, Reince Priebus, to complain about Mr. Kelly, the chief of staff who took Mr. Priebus’s place.The idea that the president would confide grievances over Mr. Kelly with the person he pushed out to hire Mr. Kelly is yet another indication of how upside-down Mr. Trump’s world can be. In the West Wing, various characters fall in and out of favor with such rapidity that it is never entirely clear who has the president’s ear.

Former Trump aide and recurring reality television contestant Omarosa Manigault-Newman was fired last year after improperly using the official White House car service, according to a new report.

New details relating to her departure from the White House in December emerged in a Tuesday story in Politico. Manigault-Newman, who got famous as a contestant on now-President Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice,” campaigned for Trump during the 2016 election and landed a role in the White House as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

But according to the new report, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly dismissed her for using the “CARPET” car service for “office pick-up and drop-off service,” something Politico said is “strictly forbidden by the federal government.”

  Omarosa: I wouldn't vote for Trump again "I made choices, I just have to live with them," said the reality show star turned White House staffer turned reality show star"If we become friends, you'll see how loyal I am, like maybe to a fault," Newman said. Alluding to Mr. Trump, she added "it's just been so incredibly hard to shoulder what I shouldered for those two years because I was so loyal to a person. And I didn't realize that by being loyal to him, it was going mean I was going to lose 100 other friends.

White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly dismissed former White House aide and current Celebrity Big Brother contestant Omarosa Manigault because she had used the White House car service for her own personal use —a “ strictly forbidden ” move.

The report said that after she was fired, she attempted to appeal to Trump directly in the White House residence, but accidentally tripped a Secret Service wire.

Manigault-Newman could not be reached Tuesday, and a White House spokesman did not return a request for comment.

Since leaving the White House, she has been appearing on the CBS reality series “Celebrity Big Brother,” where she has not shied from criticizing the Trump administration. Most recently, she took aim at Vice President Pence.

“Can I just say this, as bad as you all think Trump is, you’d be worried about Pence. Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives,” she said in a clip released this week. “You would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president. He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things, and I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ Scary.”

On another episode last week, Manigault-Newman said of the president’s Twitter habits: “I was haunted by tweets every single day. What is he going to tweet next?”

The White House responded last week by saying the reality star doesn’t talk with Trump anymore.

"Omarosa was fired three times on 'The Apprentice' and this is the fourth time we let her go," White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said. "She had limited contact with the president while she was here. She has no contact now."
