Omarosa Manigault Newman was on the offensive – as we told you she would be – yesterday morning when she sat down with Michael Strahan on Good Morning America. Her apparent mission? To dispel all the myths being reported about her White House departure.
Along the way, the former “Apprentice” says that she tendered her resignation after what she called a "tense conversation" in the situation room of the White House with chief of staff John Kelly about concerns she had - though she wouldn't say what those were.
Michael asked her if the way Donald Trump handled Charlottesville and his endorsement of Roy Moore had something to do with her decisions. Pointing to the fact that she's set to keep working until January 20th, she demurred saying she had to be "careful." But she also pointedly noted that "there were a lot of things I observed over the past year that I was very unhappy with. That I was uncomfortable with.”
And while Omarosa wouldn’t elaborate, she says she "has a story to tell" about all that she’s seen – things that have upset her and affected her "deeply" and "emotionally." “When I can tell my story,” she added. “It’s a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
