Omarosa Manigault’s resignation from her White House position as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison has made headlines, mainly due to the controversies surrounding her departure. This follows unconfirmed reports that she disrupted a party at the complex and swore at John Kelly. It apparently led to her being “forced out” of her role and also escorted out by security.

According to a report by The Independent, she, in a scene apparently worthy of a TV drama, tried to get a face-to-face with U.S. President Donald Trump to offer her terms of departure, but the move only set off security, leaving US Secret Service officers scrambling to contain the situation. A pass granting her access to the residence was also apparently deactivated as a result, according to the report. That said, she has denied the claims, stating that she chose to resign because of the things that she saw while working in the administration, which hurt her.

Her 2013 return had a victorious ending with her team carrying the win.
