That didn’t take long at all. On Thursday morning, Robin Roberts threw a dig at Omarosa Manigault, after the latter appeared on “Good Morning America” to talk about her exit from President Trump’s White House. And just a few hours later the former “Apprentice” contestant shared a cutting response.
Tonight, “Inside Edition” will reveal an exclusive text message in which Manigault wrote, “That was petty. It’s a black woman civil war.” She said it in response to Roberts’ “Bye, Felicia” diss.
Earlier in the day, Manigault sat down with Roberts’ co-anchor Michael Strahan to discuss her time in Trump’s White House. She alluded to having seen disturbing things inside his administration, but didn’t get specific.
“She said she has a story to tell and I’m sure she’ll be selling that story,” Roberts said at the anchor desk with Strahan and George Stephanopoulos. “She will. Bye, Felicia.”
As you may know, “Bye, Felicia” is slang for when you’re glad someone is leaving and you hope they don’t return. Ouch.
There “were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with,” Manigault told Strahan. “But when I have my story to tell as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people and when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
ABC News quoted White House sources, saying that the former “Apprentice” contestant was fired and then escorted off the White House premises by the Secret Service. However, Manigault denied those stories on Thursday.
