An all-female — and mostly African-American — panel on CNN took some time Wednesday to point and laugh at Omarosa Manigault, who served as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison until announcing her resignation effective January 20.
“AHHH — Bye, girl, bye … Bye honey. You have never represented the community,” CNN contributor Angela Rye said. “Good bye, good riddance, goodbye, deuces, out.”
That comment prompted a round of laughter on set — CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin at one point was laughing so hard she hid her face behind her notes.
“Angela, you know I have much love for you, but you know I don’t delight in anyone’s demise,” said April Ryan, another regular CNN contributor who certainly seemed to be taking quite a bit of delight as she laughed along with Rye.
“Folks weren’t necessary sad to see Omarosa go today,” Symone Sanders, another panelist, said, summing up the moment.
The clip was first surfaced by Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra, and it went somewhat viral among conservative Twitter on Wednesday.
Omarosa has been a fixture in Trump-land since she appeared as a contestant on the first season of his NBC reality TV show “The Apprentice” — as well as subsequent seasons.
A former Democrat who had worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration, she raised eyebrows by publicly supporting Trump’s campaign and then following him to the White House.
