Omarosa crashed the White House for her own damn wedding photo shoot
Politico ran a story Tuesday highlighting the reported shambles the Trump administration’s the Office of the Public Liaison is in, and the story demonstrates as much with one anecdote on a staffer’s wedding photo session. The staffer in question is “Apprentice” villain-cum-White House aide Omarosa Manigault, who is known for inciting conflict among factions of President Trump’s staff, threatening journalists, and not much else.
Manigault’s disruptive presence was especially felt during one Saturday morning in April when the bride and her 39-person wedding party busted in on the White House for a photo session throughout the West Wing and in the Rose Garden.
She must have been granted some sort of permission to get the small army past security, but their presence reportedly baffled staffers and lawyers on site who weren’t expecting Manigault’s entourage as well as the former reality star decked out in full bridal regalia.
For all her trouble, Manigault was ultimately banned from posting the photos online because of ethical (lol) and security issues. Unfortunately, Manigault was infinitely more successful in setting up the loud, disruptive, and inappropriate wedding photo session than she was in executing any of the president’s agenda. Despite her dubious presence, she still reportedly enjoys a trust from President Trump that parallels the relationship he holds with his adult children and son-in-law Jared Kushner. Chief of Staff John Kelly has been trying to mitigate Manigault’s presence in the Oval, as he can’t seem to figure out what she actually does besides raising the president’s hackles with gossip and negative news stories.
“When General Kelly is talking about clamping down on access to the Oval, she’s patient zero,” an aide told The Daily Beast in September.
