The Good Morning America host quipped “Bye Felicia” following an interview with the former White House aide and reality star Thursday (Dec. 14), after her pre-taped interview with host Michael Strahan.
“That was petty,” Omarosa said to Inside Edition of Roberts’ remark. “It’s a black woman civil war.”
Reports say that Omarosa was removed from the White House grounds after trying to re-enter the residence. However, she said that she was not fired, and resigned on her own accord.
“I resigned, and I didn’t do that in the residence as reported,” she explained. “[White House Chief Of Staff] John Kelly and I sat down in the Situation Room…and we had a very candid conversation.” She noted that she wanted to make the one-year mark, and then “get back to her life.”
During her GMA interview, she also discussed things she’s seen as a member of the White House staff that troubled her as a black woman. These comments prompted the “petty” response from Robin Roberts.
“When I have a chance to tell my story, Michael, I have quite a story to tell,” Omarosa said in the GMA interview. “As the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that made me feel uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people.”
