The View Omarosa Leaving White House

(ABC)

On Thursday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Omarosa leaving the White House and the Donald Trump administration. In the course of the discussion, Whoopi Goldberg called the controversial reality star “nasty.” Watch the video below.

It was announced on Wednesday that Omarosa resigned from her role as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, for which her focus was on outreach to the African-American community. Some reports later claimed she was fired and forced to leave the grounds. Now on the ABC talk show, Goldberg kicked off the topic by declaring, “The White House has claimed another victim.” After it was noted that Omarosa was the only woman of color in the administration, Sara Haines questioned her success, saying, “If her job was outreach, why was there still only one African-American woman?”

Sunny Hostin responded, “Well, because, truth be told, she’s really a pariah in the African-American community. I think she’s a pariah because she’s always sort of been a villain, and I think her job as director of outreach in the African-American community was almost a slap in the face to the African-American community. I think the folks agree with me on that.” She then brought up the allegations that Omarosa set off alarms at the White House after her security pass was revoked and had to be escorted away.

Meghan McCain noted that Omarosa denied those claims, but said, “What’s fascinating to me about the Trump White House in general is that traditionally in politics, when you are staffing for a principal, one of the main things you want are people that are going to not be seen and not be heard, that fade into the background. That’s what great campaigns and great presidents do. I like people who don’t want to do book deals, that, quite frankly, don’t want to guest co-host ‘The View.’ If you want to be in media, be in media.”

“But this new trend, where I feel like everyone in the Trump White House wants to also continue on the president’s legacy of reality television and continue to be famous and write books of such nature, there’s a really bad overturn rate, which I just find insane. It’s less stable than any president since 1977,” McCain continued, rattling off the names of people who have left the administration. “This turnover rate doesn’t help for the chaos within the White House.”

That prompted Joy Behar to crack, “As Trump, I remember said, ‘I’m gonna have the best people.’ If these are the best, who are the worst?” Haines also pointedly said that Trump shouldn’t “shop at the lot from ‘The Apprentice.'” McCain added, “People that truly are dedicated to being in public service and are truly dedicated to their White House or any other form of public service or elected office, shouldn’t want to be on television in the way most people in this White House seems to want to be.”

Goldberg then addressed Omarosa directly, and brought up her January interview on “The View,” in which she fought with the panelists and made quite a few digs. “You said some stuff here about here that wasn’t very nice, but you know, that happens. You mentioned that we would all be bowing down… And so, you know, I hope you find something to do, O. I do, I do. And I hope that you find your people, because maybe they’re looking for you,” the moderator said.

Goldberg went on, “She’s just been so nasty to so many women, and so many women of color. So many women of color. And I just, you know, nevermind.” Check out the video below.
