Omarosa v. Kelly: She tried to outmaneuver him; she failed
(lost her job in the process)
Updated and Corrected Story: Boy, oh, boy how these stories hit the wires and then the facts or truth (PR versions natch come out) – here is latest example on this – the original post follows:
She told GMA host Michael Strahan that she sat down with President Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly and resigned from her position as assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
She now says: “We had a very candid conversation. I wanted to make the one-year mark … and then get back to my life.”
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders confirmed that Newman resigned and her departure is effective January 20. Some initially reports said that Newman was escorted from the White House, but the Secret Service denied that agents were involved in her removal saying a statement: “The Secret Service was not involved in the termination process of Ms. Manigault-Newman or the escort off of the complex. Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual's pass which grants access to the complex.”

Original story from Fox (of all places).
December 13 was her last day, though January 20 is the official exit date. She joined the administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, which was designed to garner outside support for the president’s agenda.
But she then drew the scrutiny of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Background: She is a former “Apprentice” contestant and she recently drew press attention after she brought her 39-person bridal party inside the White House this past spring for an “extended” photo shoot in the Rose Garden. It is unclear whether she had permission. She was reportedly banned from posting any of the photos online by White House officials citing security and ethical concerns.
Her decision comes at the start of what’s expected to be a round of departures heading into the new year – for example: The White House said last week that deputy national security adviser Dina Powell will leave the administration early next year.
The Trump W/H we now see, “The T” used to stand for “Trump Tower” but now means “Turmoil Tower.”
