Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” star and adviser to President Donald Trump, was dramatically fired from the White House.
Manigault’s role has recently come under scrutiny in the media, with reports suggesting her position was vague and undefined.
Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” star and adviser to President Donald Trump, was dramatically fired from the Trump administration on Tuesday.
While the White House announced that Manigault resigned from her position as director of communications for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison, American Urban Radio Networks’ April Ryan reported on Wednesday that chief of staff John Kelly fired Manigault, who reacted angrily.
“Omarosa is alleged to have acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump,” Ryan tweeted, adding that Manigault was reported escorted out of the White House and “off campus.”
Manigault’s role had recently come under scrutiny in the media, with reports suggesting her position was vague and undefined, a point of frustration for her colleagues.
In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that Manigault resigned on Tuesday “to pursue other opportunities” and that her official last day will be January 20…
Manigault, who struggled to develop functioning relationships between the Trump administration and black lawmakers and communities, has a history of sparking workplace drama.
Sources say General Kelly did the firing and Omarosa is alleged to have acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump. The word is a General Kelly had it and got rid of her.
I guess Paris Dennard and the black Lawn Jockeys for Chumph needed some recuperation and healing time from the serial beatdowns the last two weeks. So while those clowns are laid up getting patched with a new layer of paint…Time to trot out the Hispanic Lawn Jockey…
The Lawn Jockey uses the usual right-wing racist rationale and deflection trying to characterize something out last real President Obama did as wrong, in pardoning people.Theren he tries the “but it’s the Democrats! deflection to not have to answer the direct questions…Ramo as usual was polite…Ana wasn’t having any of that.
Ana Navarro, as usual – wasn’t tlerating the bullshit
Jesse Lee Peterson is owned by Sean Hannity. If you look at the financials and oard of his corporation – Sean is the boss. Indeed, almost every penny funding the front operation comes from Faux News and Hannity. He is Hannity’s favorite Porch Negro to trot out an reaffirm Hannity’s racist diatribes.
The only question I have is why anyone in the MSM would publish his ignorant trash.
What the boy better be hoping, is the black community never develops the will to take out the Lawn Jockeys and other assorted trash.
Lawn Jockey of the Year Award – Jesse Lee Peterson
The violence led to numerous displays of unity among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including shared prayers. But Peterson said Republicans shouldn’t join them.
“What are the Democrats praying for? The Democrats are not of God,” Peterson said. “All of a sudden when Scalise gets shot, when they hear about the shooting, all the children of Satan are going to come together and pray? Please!”
In the past, Peterson, who is black, has said he would like to “take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working.” He also said that giving women the right to vote was “one of the greatest mistakes America made.” His self-titled radio show has featured interviews with other divisive right-wing figures, including Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke and Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Clarke notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Friday of his decision, according to reports.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an African-American who became a staunch critic of the Black Lives Matter movement and a supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has withdrawn his acceptance for a job as assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. newspapers reported on Saturday.
Clarke notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Friday of his decision, Craig Peterson, an adviser to Clarke, said in a statement, according to the Washington Post and other newspapers.
“Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role,” the newspapers quoted Peterson as saying.
Neither the agency nor Clarke’s office immediately responded to requests for comment.
Clarke’s decision comes a month after he told radio station WISN in Milwaukee that he would leave his post as sheriff in June to join the Department of Homeland Security.
At the time, a spokeswoman for the agency said no announcement on Clarke had been made.
President Trump and Clarke met in Wisconsin on Tuesday and discussed other roles in which Clarke could help advance Trump’s agenda, the Washington Post reported, citing Peterson.
The Department of Homeland Security – created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and the Pentagon – includes agencies that handle customs, border protection and immigration, the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and the Secret Service.
Clarke has come under fire for comments he has made about the Black Lives Matter movement, which grew out of protests over a number of police killings of unarmed black men in various parts of the United States.
Clarke has labeled members of the movement “subhuman creeps” and called for its eradication.
Clarke spoke in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last July.
Critics have faulted Clarke for his management of a Milwaukee County jail where a mentally ill man died in 2016 of dehydration. An inquest jury recommended that seven employees of the jail be criminally charged.
Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California called Clarke’s appointment “a disgrace.”
She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding.
Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York.
Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.
Patton’s tight relationship with the Trump clan dates back to 2009, when she began serving as the family’s “event planner.”
“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”
From 2011 through January, she also helped run the Eric Trump Foundation, a charity that’s now under investigation by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
She also claims on her LinkedIn page to have obtained a juris doctorate degree in 2000 from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. Next to the J.D. notation is written (N/A) without explanation.
On Thursday school registrar Jim Benson said Patton attended for two semesters but did not graduate.
She also listed Yale University but HUD officials couldn’t explain why that was there. Patton, who begins her Region II job July 5, did not return calls seeking comment.
As head of the biggest HUD regional office in the U.S., Patton will oversee distribution of billions in cash to public housing authorities — including NYCHA — as well as tens of thousands of rental vouchers and block grants that fund housing inspections and senior citizen programs.
Patton is one of the handful of African Americans within Trump’s inner circle and a passionate Trump promoter. Last year she made a video entitled “I’m proof Donald Trump isn’t a bigot.”
Trump first placed her as a White House liaison at HUD in February. While there, she’s fired off multiple flamethrowing tweets for him and his family…
Patton has also had to defend her role as former vice president at Eric Trump’s foundation. Forbes last week reported the charity steered money to the Trump empire by holding events at Trump golf courses while she was there. She said nothing untoward happened at the charity.
Note – She is now under investigation by the FBI for fraud at that charity.
Wonder if they will give the boy an orange cowboy hat to go with his new uniform?
Sheriff David Clarke, who is really the supervisor of the jail in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin is in serious trouble. At least four deaths have occurred in his jails under questionable circumstances. There appears to be a pattern of prisoner abuse and brutality at the jail, including an incident where a pregnant prisoner was chained to a bed during childbirth. In a case resulting in a Federal Lawsuit, a woman was confined to solitary, without medical attention. She was 8 1/ months pregnant, was denied medical care, and her baby, born alive, died soon after.
DA Begins Official Inquest Before Considering Charges
Prosecutors say Milwaukee County Jail officers cut off an inmate’s water for seven consecutive days before the man died of dehydration.
Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Kurt Bentley told jurors at an inquest Monday that the inmate, Terrill Thomas, was mentally unstable and unable to ask for help before he died in his cell in April 2016.
The DA’s office is asking a jury for advice on whether there’s probable cause that a crime was committed in Thomas’ death. The medical examiner has already ruled Thomas died because of dehydration.
Testimony and documents at the inquest revealed Thomas was moved to a solitary disciplinary unit where his water was cut off after he used a mattress to flood his cell in another jail unit.
Separately, Thomas’ children have filed a federal civil suit, saying their father’s treatment by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and his staff amounts to torture.
Attorney Walter Stern represents three of Thomas’ children. As he left the courtroom Monday afternoon, Stern said it was an interesting day.
“There was a police report indicating that this man was asking for, or begging for water,” Stern said. “Put it all together and it looks like there was profound dehydration.”
Thomas’ death was one of four at the Milwaukee County Jail last year, but Clarke won’t be a witness in the inquest. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said don’t read anything into that.
“I don’t think anybody should draw any conclusions. This is really a fact-based investigation,and so, what you try to do is limit yourself to people who have direct knowledge of the incident itself,” Chisholm said.
The inquest may last all week. The prosecutor’s office will then decide whether to file charges.
Terill Thomas, a mentally ill man was placed in solitary, and denied water for 7 days. He died of severe dehydration.
Kristina Fiebrink died on August 28th after she was arrested and booked on August 24th. The lawsuit says “despite exhibiting signs and symptoms of acute heroin and alcohol intoxication, Fiebrink was never placed on preventative detoxification protocol, seen by a doctor, provided withdrawal medication or placed on a heightened observation level.”
Michael Madden died on October 28th. The lawsuit says he was suffering from a heart condition which he had had since birth, as well as a heroin addiction. The lawsuit says he “received little to no health care while in the Justice Facility.” He suffered a seizure, rendering him unconscious, and passed away.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a Faux News favorite and Trump Lawn Jockey is facing some serious charges back home. A common misconception about Clarke is that he is a real Sheriff, with Law enforcement duties and Police Officers patrolling the streets. He isn’t. He runs the County jail, and has no Law Enforcement duties.

Jail deaths and controversial moves on immigration in David Clarke’s Milwaukee County.
David Clarke, the controversial sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, rose to national prominence last year as a vocal supporter of Donald Trump and a frequent guest on Fox News. Clarke traversed the country speaking to pro-gun and religious rights groups, and he endorsed Trump in a fiery pro-police (and anti-Black Lives Matter) speech at the Republican National Convention. After the election, Clarke met with the president-elect at Trump Tower, reportedly under consideration to head the Department of Homeland Security.
But things haven’t gone so smoothly for Clarke back home in Milwaukee County. Four people died last year in the county jail overseen by Clarke, and he has been sued three times since December over treatment of inmates. Clarke has faced calls for his resignation over the jail deaths and his absenteeism. And since January, he has clashed with other county leaders over immigration enforcement policy. Here’s the latest on what’s been happening on Clarke’s turf:
Deaths in Clarke’s jail
Clarke has faced two federal lawsuits since December, in the wake of four deaths that occurred last year in the Milwaukee County Jail. In mid-March, the family of a man who died of dehydration in April 2016 sued Clarke and the county, alleging that jail staff subjected the man to “torture” by denying him water as he pleaded for it over 10 days. County prosecutors are considering bringing felony charges against jail staff for neglect. Another lawsuit, filed last December, seeks damages for the death of a newborn in the jail last July, after jail staff ignored the infant’s mother as she went into labor and for more than six hours thereafter, according to the suit.
A lawsuit filed earlier this month also alleges mistreatment of pregnant inmates. In that suit, a woman alleges that, during a seven-month stint at the jail in 2013, she was forcibly shackled with a “belly-chain” that tied her wrists and legs to her stomach during her hospitalization for pre-natal care, while she was in labor, and while she received treatment for post-partum depression after she gave birth. The restraints made giving birth more painful for the woman, left marks on her body, and made it more difficult for doctors—who insisted she be freed—to give her an epidural, the lawsuit says. The jail has a policy that inmates be shackled while receiving medical care that makes no exceptions for pregnancy, according to the lawsuit, which also states that more than 40 women were subjected to the same treatment.
County officials and relatives of the four people who died have called for independent investigations into the deaths, but Clarke has relinquished control of the investigation into only one of the cases. In December, the Department of Justice said it would “consider” launching a civil rights investigation into Clarke’s office for the deaths, in response to a letter sent by Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore. But it’s unclear what action the department might take under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has said his department will “pull back” on investigating police abuse. Moore plans to reach out to the DOJ about an investigation into the jail, a spokesperson for her office told Mother Jones.
Calls for Clarke to resign
Clarke has been celebrated by the likes of NRA CEO Wayne La Pierre and Fox News host Sean Hannity, but he’s less highly regarded in his overwhelmingly Democratic home county, despite running for sheriff as a Democrat in the last three election cycles. Multiple county and state officials have called in recent months for Clarke to resign his post. In December, three Democratic state lawmakers wrote a lettercalling for Clarke’s resignation, citing “gross mismanagement” of the county jail. At least one county supervisor and the county executive have also called for Clarke to resign over the jail deaths.
Clarke is also facing mounting scrutiny for his repeated absences from the job last year. Clarke visited 20 states in 2016, according to financial disclosure documents he filed with the county, often to give paid speeches in which he praised Donald Trump. He spent about 60 days out of state last year, the documents show. (Before he campaigned for Trump, Clarke took a trip to Moscowin December 2015 with a delegation from the NRA, during which they met with Russian officials.) …Read More Here About Clarke’s Immigration Moves…
Ben Carson, who knows about as much about housing and urban development as a outhouse – now has the job to derail fair housing in the US. Loyal Lawn Jockey to the end, Uncle Ben describes fair housing as “Communism”. Utterly unqualified, Uncle Ben has never held any sort of office, has no background or training in the field, Just another Uncle Tom on his knees sucking the KKK’s man parts.
President-elect Donald Trump is nominating Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has never held public office, as his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
In a statement released Monday, Trump called Carson a “distinguished national leader” with a “brilliant mind.”
Carson, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, told Fox News last month that he was considering the position. This was a shift from his earlier assertion that he wasn’t qualified for a Cabinet position.
Trump’s choice to nominate Carson is just the latest confirmation that he’s prioritizing loyalty over government experience. One of the president-elect’s first hirings was Steve Bannon, a former Breitbart executive with ties to white nationalists. Bannon was a close adviser to Trump during the campaign.
“These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson said in a Washington Times piece last year. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”
As the Daily Beast points out, as HUD Secretary, “Carson would, in part, be the very person entrusted to get it right.”
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke was one of Donald Trump’s most enthusiastic boosters during the presidential campaign, and he’s been rumored to be on the shortlist for a job with Trump’s administration.
However, Clarke has a major potential problem that could wind up costing him a plum position in Washington, D.C. — namely, people keep dying in the jail that he oversees.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a newborn infant died in the Milwaukee County Jail this past summer after a corrections officer allegedly laughed off a pregnant inmate’s pleas for help as she was giving birth.
Former inmate Shadé Swayzer claims that she didn’t get any medical attention for six hours after she first pleaded with a guard to help her as she went into labor. In fact, she says that even after she gave birth, it took the jail an additional two hours to deliver medical aid to her newborn baby, who subsequently died later in the day.
“Swayzer’s lawyer, Jason Jankowski, wrote in the notice of claim that Swayzer told a corrections officer her water broke and she was going into labor, but the officer laughed and ignored her,” the Journal Sentinel reports.
Swayzer is seeking $8.5 million in damages against the government over the incident.
What sort of asshat lives in Wisconsin, and wears a cowboy hat?
I mean…In Texas and anywhere in the West it makes sense, both from a cultural history standpoint as well as practicality. These hats were designed to protect the wearer from the southern and desert sun. Wisconsin doesn’t have a desert…And is sure is in the North.
Anyway, Faux News’ Lawn Jockey de jure get’s schooled.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a vocal backer Donald Trump, is urging Americans to take up pitchforks and torches, as the GOP nominee claims that the presidential election is rigged against him.
Clarke, who has called the Occupy and Black Lives Matter protests“anarchy,” made the call to arms on Twitter Saturday. He also complained about branches of government and media of being corrupt
Clarke’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
