Omarosa reportedly fired for abusing White House car service

Former Trump aide and reality television staple Omarosa Manigault-Newman reportedly drove her own political career into the ground.

Chief of Staff John Kelly dismissed the current “Celebrity Big Brother” contestant in December because she was abusing the White House car service, called “CARPET,” Politico reported, citing three administration sources.

The notorious reality show villain used it as an office pick-up and drop-off service, which is “strictly forbidden by the federal government,” the report said.

In an attempt to appeal to the President following her dismissal, Manigault-Newman tripped an electronic Secret Service wire and was reportedly escorted from the West Wing.

Manigault-Newman campaigned for Trump during the 2016 election and went on to land a role in the White House as director of communications for the Office of Public Liason.

She and the President first connected while he was the host of “The Apprentice,” where she first gained fame as a reality show mean girl.

Since her dismissal, she’s been a vocal critic of the Trump administration on her latest television stint. She recently took aim at Vice President Pence during an upcoming episode of “Celebrity Big Brother.”

“Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives,” she said in clips released this week.

Omarosa says Trump White House is ‘so bad’

“You would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became the President. He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to things, and I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ It’s scary.”

The former Trump-aide has long denied being fired and the White House in December issued a statement saying Manigault-Newman had resigned from her White House job despite whispers that she’d been axed by Kelly.
