GMA Anchor Robin Roberts was less than amused by Manigault Newman's claims that she has "quite a story to tell" when the video cut back to her sitting with Strahan.
“That’s what she said, she has a story to tell,” Roberts said with an eye roll. “I’m sure she’ll be selling that story. Bye Felicia.”
Manigault Newman maintained that she was not fired by the administration and that she resigned to Chief of Staff John Kelly in the situation room.
“John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I had raised, and as a result, I resigned, and it will be taking place Jan. 20, when I leave this very interesting administration,” she said.
Manigault Newman said that the Secret Service did restrict her pass to the White House, but she denied reports that she attempted to enter the residence.
“Certainly I had more access than most, and people had problems with that,” she said. “People had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president, but I’ve always been loyal to him, straightforward, and I’ve provided him with the support he needed throughout this year.”

When denying the reports that she was escorted out and caused a disruption, Manigault Newman blamed American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent April D. Ryan for spreading a “false narrative.” Although she did not mention Ryan by name, she was likely referring to the journalist.
As news initially broke that Manigault Newman was leaving the White House, Ryan tweeted that she heard there was drama surrounding her exit.
Ryan and Manigault Newman have had a contentious relationship, as reported by The Washington Post, CNN and other news outlets.
