The Media Forgot That Al Gore Fired Omarosa Too

Omarosa Manigault has made a habit of getting fired from the White House, and we aren’t just talking about Donald Trump. 

The reality TV star once worked in the Clinton White House, and did such a poor job for then-Vice President Al Gore that she was shipped out. It was the first of several moves the Clinton administration made to get rid of Omarosa, basically passing her down the totem pole before she was eventually ejected out at the Commerce Department.

Her most recent firing has given Omarosa some much-desired attention from the news media, hoping she follows through on promises of damaging information about the President.

And yet, the media has all but forgotten that Omarosa was fired from Al Gore’s office at the White House as well. She did such a poor job responding to correspondence he received that they found 13 months-worth of unanswered letters underneath her desk when she left.

Kerry Picket of The Daily Caller outlines the saga of Omarosa and the Clinton administration.

The Trump White House is not the first to be unsatisfied with the work performance of Omarosa Manigault, the former senior Trump staffer who already released secretly recorded conversations she had with the president and Chief of Staff John Kelly

Despite Manigault’s complaints that she was treated poorly in the Trump White House during her tenure as one of the highest paid staffers there, former “numerous” staffers for Vice President Al Gore’s office told The New York Times last year that she was a terrible employee for the then-vice president.

At 24 years of age, she scored an entry-level, $25,000-per-year post replying to invitations for the vice president. According to The Times, she left a mound of 13 months-worth of unanswered correspondence addressed to Gore below her desk.

“She was the worst hire we ever made,” Mary Margaret Overbey, Gore’s former office administrator told The Times.

Apparently, no one who has even worked with Omarosa has enjoyed the experience, a warning President Trump should have heeded when he considered adding her to the campaign, and then the White House staff.

Manigault was then moved to the Clinton White House to the position of deputy associate director of presidential personnel. She only lasted eight months in that job until she was transferred out of the White House all together to the Commerce Department.

There, Cheryl Shavers, who served as the Department’s undersecretary for technology, described Manigault to The Times as “unqualified and disruptive,” so she “had her removed.”

Additionally, Omarosa reportedly embellished her job titles, tasks, and work performance on her resume in different posts and sources repeatedly disputed to The Times her claims, including a Howard University spokesman who said she was, in fact, a “facilitator and presenter” and never a professor at the school.
