Omarosa Manigault-Newman made her way from The Apprentice to the White House, much like Donald Trump himself. But now, she's out. White House Correspondent April D. Ryan broke the news of Omarosa's departure from the Trump administration on Wednesday. It's still unclear whether she resigned or was fired — but one thing's for sure: Whatever happened, the story is juicy. Omarosa has been a controversial figure since she appeared on The Apprentice all those years ago, and the report of her leaving the White House elicited some strong (and hilarious) responses from news reporters and regular ol' Twitter users alike.
According to April D. Ryan's report, Omarosa was fired and did not go down without a fight.

General Kelly was called back to deal with this issue as Omarosa was trying to get into the residence to see the president. Secret Service stopped her, and she was escorted off campus." Apparently, she was "very vulgar" and used curse words when the news was dropped on her. Ryan reported that Omarosa's negotiated resignation cited January 20 as her last day but that it's unclear if she will stay on until then.
Of course, this isn't the first time Omarosa's been fired by Trump.

Omarosa fiercely denied that she made a scene and maintained that she did resign and was not fired. The Secret Service also stepped in to set the record straight:

Donald Trump, who always has a lot to say, bid farewell to Omarosa with this message:It's suspiciously short and goodhearted for the President of the United States. Perhaps he's trying to stay on her good side? Once she no longer works at the White House, there are probably stories she will publicize about her time in the White House, and we can't imagine those stories will be all rainbows and butterflies.
On Thursday morning, Omarosa appeared on Good Morning America to set the record straight:

On CNN, political analyst Angela Rye couldn't quite contain her excitement over the dramatic story of Omarosa's departure:

Possibly the most amazing moment ever came immediately after Omarosa's GMA interview, when it was thrown back to Robin Roberts in the studio and this is how she chose to end the segment:
That amazing moment when @RobinRoberts hits Omarosa with the ‘Bye Felicia!’ 😩 https://t.co/gdWDVeStJj— theGrio.com (@theGrio.com)1513257689.0
It was a beautiful moment, and this was pretty much the reaction of the entire Internet:
