Omarosa Manigoult, the other former Apprentice star who works in the White House, seems to be having an (almost) equally hard time behaving like a non-reality show character. Politico reports that back in April, Manigoult—who is the Director of Communications for the Office of the Public Liaison, which is apparently not going particularly well—traipsed into the White House with members of her wedding party for a photo op that at least some staffers and security personnel weren’t aware of in advance.
Unfortunately, you gotta get like, a lot of permission slips for that kind of thing—even in the Trump White House, which is kind of surprising, considering this administration’s general stance on rules and decorum. Allow Politico to set this incredible scene:
The Apprentice villain turned senior White House official brought members of her 39-person bridal party to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for an extended wedding photo shoot, catching fellow senior aides and some security officials by surprise in her bridal attire. They loudly wandered around, looking to snap photos in the Rose Garden and throughout the West Wing, according to four current and former White House officials.
While it’s unclear if she received any formal permission for the photo shoot, at least some lawyers and other senior aides were not briefed in advance, the officials said. They quickly banned Manigault, the director of communications for the Office of the Public Liaison, from posting the pictures online, citing security and ethical concerns.
That’s right—no pictures. I mean, what’s the FUCKING POINT in being the Director of Communications for the Office of the Public Liaison if you can’t publish pics of yourself in your reportedly comped cap sleeve blush embroidered ball gown lounging in the very same Rose Garden where Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement?!?
Bullshit, I tell you! Some footage, at least, survives:
