“Saturday Night Live” had its fun with Omarosa Manigault Newman during the Kevin Hart-hosted Christmas episode, having cast member Leslie Jones play the former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in two different appearances throughout the night. The show’s point was hilariously clear: Omarosa isn’t going to leave the public spotlight without a fight.
Jones’ Omarosa first appeared in the opening night sketch, which featured Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump and Cecily Strong’s Melania hanging ornaments of Trump’s disgraced former staffers. Something was banging on the window outside the White House, and it turned out to be a very pissed off Omarosa.
Omarosa announced her resignation from the White House on December 13, but it’s been speculated that Trump had her “forcibly removed.” Later in the show, Jones’ Omarosa reappeared to crash Weekend Update after co-host Michael Che starting to make fun of her.
“I left that job by choice,” she said. “I quit. I deactivated my ID card. I changed the locks on my own office. I escorted myself off the premises. And then I threw myself into the bushes. You can’t throw me out cause I quit.”
