With the news that former reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman has been ousted from her job as a Trump White House aide, many Twitter users pounced to mock her firing.
Many black Twitter users in particular seemed to relish Omarosa’s ouster, as they have long seen her as a token fig leaf used to provide cover for President Donald Trump’s use of racist dog whistles, including his attacks on “ungrateful” black athletes who protest police violence during the national anthem and his past assertions that former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya instead of the United States.
Check out some of the top reactions below.
He fired Omarosa. Again.

Omarosa was the Milton of the White House. No one even knew she was still working there. pic.twitter.com/eMwBdUdnnN

Omarosa once justified her association with Trump by saying “If you’re not at the table you’re on the menu,” but couldn’t understand why everyone was staring at her with knives in hand.

Did Omarosa resign before or after Trump asked if she was one of the black women who voted in Alabama
