heads when she was hired...


Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in an interview Thursday he was unsure why Trump ally Omarosa Manigault Newman was hired to the White House.

“I don’t know,” Spicer responded when asked by Fox News's Laura Ingraham why Manigault Newman, a former reality TV star, was hired.

“[Did] she have any qualifications to work in the White House?” Ingraham asked.

“Look, she was very loyal to the president,” Spicer replied, before Ingraham noted that Manigault Newman campaigned for Trump during the 2016 election.

“I think the president brought a lot of people who wanted to fulfill his agenda,” Spicer said. “And that’s his prerogative … I wish her the best. But I don't — I'm not really sure."


Manigault’s exact title hasn’t been specified yet, but it appears to be in a similar vein (or at least in the same office) as the role held by actor Kal Penn in Barack Obama’s administration. Penn worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs from 2009 to 2011; he famously left a regular role on the TV series House to pursue the White House job, where he was involved with outreach to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.

During Trump’s presidential campaign, Manigault served as his director of African-American outreach — though whether she was successful in her efforts is up for debate. While Trump ultimately won the election, his opponent, Hillary Clinton, had an 80-point advantage among black voters, according to Pew Research. That’s a blistering deficit for Trump, but the gap between Trump and Clinton was smaller than the 87-point edge Obama had over Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race.
