It turns out the Trump administration isn’t the first time Omarosa Manigault Newman has been fired. She also worked in the Clinton administration under former Vice President Al Gore.
Since being let go by the Trump administration for personal reasons, she has used her closeness to President Trump to make millions by calling him a liar and a racist. Even worse, she illegally recorded conversations she had with people in the White House.
Per People Magazine in 2004:
According to the new issue of PEOPLE, the former political appointee — who spoke glowingly of her White House days — was banished from four jobs in two years with the Clinton administration.
At her last one, “she was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive,” says Cheryl Shavers, the former Under Secretary for Technology at the Commerce Department, where Omarosa worked several weeks in 2000. “One woman wanted to slug her.”
Manigault-Stallworth, 30, was also bounced from a previous position at Commerce, says another former administration official, “because she couldn’t get along with people.”
At her first White House gig, answering invitations received by Vice President Al Gore, “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble,” says a former Gore staffer.
During the Q&A with the audience at a March 19 Washington, D.C., panel discussion on “Wearing the Pants: A Woman’s Experience in a Man’s World,” PEOPLE asked Manigault-Stallworth about the challenges she’s faced as a woman in her own career.
“I have done logistics and advance and event planning for the White House under the Gore staff. … At 23, I got appointed to the White House. That was not a place to learn how to be a young professional. That’s a very difficult environment, because they don’t believe in training. They just kind of throw you in the fire,” Omarosa told the audience.
But Omarosa did not do any logistics or advance work for the Vice President, the former Gore staffer, who asked to remain anonymous, tells PEOPLE. “Her exact title was scheduling correspondent. Her job was to respond to invitations,” says the former staffer.
Omarosa was transferred to the White House personnel office, which later sent her to Commerce.
When asked about her employment history, the former Apprentice at first told PEOPLE, “I left when I got married,” but later said she left “to go out on the campaign for Al Gore.”
She’s having the time of her life playing the victim card, but this is not the first time she was kicked to the curb. She was also dumped by the Clinton administration, so she’s had several chances, but gets dumped every time. This begs the question, why does she keep getting chances despite constant failures?

Omarosa also worked for Al Gore, worked in the Clinton White House, worked for the Commerce Department, and in every case was fired for being no good and disruptive. #OmarosaGate

Omarosa’s slow release of taped conversations “is having the same effect on staffers as the daily dumps from WikiLeaks had on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.”
“People are terrified,” one ex-Trump aide said of the tapes. “Absolutely terrified.” https://t.co/3PogGak5JM
