Angella Reid

The White House fired a black woman who was hired as the White House’s chief usher under former President Barack Obama.

Former White House Chief Usher Angella Reid was the first woman to hold job. The Washington Post first reported Reid was terminated from her job on Friday morning, while President Donald Trump was away in New Jersey.

Reid’s job duties included running the executive mansion (where the first family lives) and overseeing the staff and events in the White House residence.

“We are very grateful for her service and wish her the best,” a White House official told the Post.

Reid was the first black woman and the 2nd black person to be chief usher. She was hired in 2011 under President Obama’s administration.

No reason was given for Reid’s termination, but it isn’t hard to guess why.

The Trump administration had earlier vowed to fire any White House employee suspected of leaking insider information to the media or to the former administration.

Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is substituting for Sean Spicer temporarily, said the deputy White House usher would assume Reid’s duties until a permanent usher is hired.





  • Trey

    This aint news though..

  • Yardgirl

    Fluck President Agent Orange and his minions. They are gleefully chirping “WINNING!!” and cleaning house to erase everything Obama. They gonna learn come mid term elections. Tuh!

  • tintin

    But think about it, she was hired under Obama and for Obama, of course she has a love for them, If I was a new president I would be concerned about her.

    Personally any staff that was associated with Obama in that house should be on their way. Im sure she wasn’t too happy having to take care of Trump’s house matters anyways.

    Can imagine her talking smack with the other white house staff about the orangutan. So I’m sure she was gifted with a nice package on her way out.

  • classycns

    I would be relieved if I was her. Now when things fall about they can’t blame a person that doesn’t work there.
    Btw, where Kelly Anne been? She’s been quiet.

  • classycns

    If leaking info were to true reason The Pres. would have tweeted about it already.
    Btw, can we get a medical minute on The Pres.

  • Phillybruh

    But this is not the type of Whitehouse staff that turns around after every administration they are usually long term employees. Anything with Obamas name he is trying to erase which is why he wanted to be president. Her resume should have been done and she should have no problem finding another job.

  • Phillybruh

    He’s paranoid

  • Taylordanes

    She was fired because she is black and Dump is mentally ill…… white men are so fearful and jealous of black men. Sad they can’t just accept black men are stronger and kinder… white men have slaughtered EVERY nation……..Dump wants to erase anything Obama did.. which for a president is vile…. instead of focusing on doing RIGHT!

  • Taylordanes

    Hes mentally ill and holds his head to the side… He has a syndrome like his son…

  • Taylordanes

    He has so much hate for a black family he is trying to remove anything associated…. Its a mental issue that white men have had for centuries

  • teather

    Stop it. I’m cracking up at work! LOL

  • Taylordanes

    truth hurts and is funny too… but look at him he has a syndrome…

  • Thismessismessy

    So she was fired for not confirming what? That Tiffany is ugly. Something wrong with Barron. And Mel and President aren’t fukkin. Ok.

  • Lolalao

    It angers them that they’ve tried so hard to oppress black men and they still look at them as weak. It’s so much power in that strong mindset, they can’t tolerate it.

  • Tammie Reed

    The amount of paranoia must be insane working in and around the White House! I wouldn’t want any parts of it! They could frame your behind for anything and try to cover it up, no thanks!

  • Keesh5000

    Boring day…..guess she aint got nothing to talk about. Im over Politics…..FA REAL

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    A white’s only pie? Lol

  • Lucy

    “The secretary of everything” Jared Kushner will now hold that position.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Don’t most presidents fire and hire new staff?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    The Post reports that the job normally involves a long tenure and that it is unusual for a White House to fire a chief usher. Rochon, for instance, only left the job to take a role at the Department of Homeland Security. Rochon in turn had replaced Gary Walters, who retired after serving in the post since 1986.

    Seems this was a life time position.

  • Justlooknout

    No, the White House staff – Stays through many administrations.

    This includes
    Operations
    Maintenance
    Kitchen etc

  • Justlooknout

    basically – most those positions are…see below.

    many are leaving Washington, if they haven’t been asked to leave already.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Reached by phone, Reid declined to comment, saying only, “I think it’s best if the White House explains.”

    During Friday’s daily briefing with reporters, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the deputy White House press secretary, said that the deputy usher will serve as the acting usher.

    “She is no longer employed here at the White House,” Sander said when asked about Reid’s departure. “We left on very good terms and wish her the very best and certainly hope for great things for her in the future. However, it’s not uncommon you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in. It’s nothing more than that.”

    The job is one that typically involves a long tenure — there have been just nine since the beginning of the 20th century. The White House declined to provide any specifics for the reasons behind Reid’s departure.

    Angella said A LOT without saying a word.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Got’cha…?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She was NOT hired under Obama for Obama….the person prior to her moved to another position and thus this one became available and that person didn’t leave until 3 years AFTER Obama took office.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Reid’s job duties included running the executive mansion (where the first family lives) and overseeing the staff and events in the White House residence.
    ==============================Her job is to oversee the private residence where the President and his family live and also oversee the staff — I’m sure this position makes you privy to a lot of things like how the president likes his steak and eggs — it does not make you privy to matters concerning the United States of America…

  • Justlooknout

    Matter of fact, many who don’t work at the white house who are high level govt career folks are DONE.

    and that bull chit act he pulled yesterday, you know it’s shady because congress is exempt from their insurance is affected.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    To ensure no tattling or leak of intel is going on, anything asssociated with the previous president has gotta go, I’m sure Obama got rid of Bush’s previous staff,

    Not this position..the person prior left 3 years after Obama was elected and it was due to another position.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    That lil boy IS slow af!
    #FIXEDTHAT

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He is a product of inbreeding- hence his tiny hands and Hills Have Eyes Looking son.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Dump you ain’t have to fire Angella!! We already know that:
    1. Barron is slow (his momma should really become a champion for that cause)
    2. You gave Jared all those jobs, so you could have alone time with your daughter
    3. Your current wife (hell all of them for that matter) hates you
    4. You got Hit and Misses in the kids departments- a few got lucky- Tiffany and that Cromagon one—not so much
    5. Sean Spicer has to pull his face out your azz, before every press conference
    6. Omarosa lets you grab her by her fur muff often
    7. Even though Paris Dennard was fired, he is still in the White House—he too has to extract his tongue out your azz prior to interviews.
    8. You watch My Baby Can Read every night before bed and then Tweet all the new words you learned.

    See, ain’t too much Angella would have to tell us that would cost her her job.

  • Justlooknout

    ha, she prolly wishes she could have, her duties are “executive” if you will.

    Budgets
    Invites
    Who comes and goes to events

    This position is Miss or Mister Manners to the highest degree that sits in a office and probably looked out for her staff.

    Wonder can she write a tell all…..about her tenure with 45th

  • Justlooknout

    it’s crazy, these folks aren’t even taking there phone to work, in fear of haven’t it taken. NOW THAT IS CRAZY

  • Thismessismessy

    Hard to champion for your son, when something wrong with your husband too. Smdh. Feel semi sorry for her. She really may have been trying to pass Michelle a help me note

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Basically Angella was called in as the next employee to sell her soul and she said no—so they got rid of her Moral azz or she had one too many pre-existing conditions.

  • Phillybruh

    But he didn’t that typically happens with cabinet appointments. She was not a cabinet appointment. I don’t think Trump is racist, He only likes rich people so regular white folk don’t matter to him either so assuming based on your comment that’s what you are if your black and cheering this than your sad. And like mentioned earlier he has a special hate for OBAMA.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump probably thought she was related to MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I feel sorry for Barron but NOT her. He ain’t have a choice in this, Melania willingly opted to have her little bundle of retire funds and then found out that it wasn’t going to be so easy.

  • Phillybruh

    Her phone is ringing off the hook right now. Her book deal should set her up real nice. I’m waiting to read Michelle’s mom’s book that’s where the dirt is going to be.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And that’s going to create problems later in Trump’s administration because they know that for Trump family comes first and Jared will be the last voice Trump hears on any and every subject.

    You know that some of Trump’s cabinet members are going to get tired of Trump allowing Jared to second guess them.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She may be starting the writing now, but it probably won’t be out for another 3-5 years due to a non-compete or gag order.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The extreme paranoia in the Trump White House is the reason that so many positions are still unfilled.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Who is Mel?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You are wrong for that.

    Well it’s not his fault that his father was 59 and his mom was 35 when he was conceived.

    Old man sperm and a dusty egg.

  • Renee26

    Well since his family lives in Trump tower there’s no need for her to be there…IJS

  • NaeNay

    Lawd I try to stay away from anything negative about the chirrun but this made me laugh so hard.

  • NaeNay

    Good point.

  • Willetta

    CHILE … them old, shriveled up, tired tadpoles had just enough strength to make it to them plastic eggs; then they had to bong their little brains out to penetrate them — Thus, Poor Barron. SMH

  • Taylordanes

    YESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • OP2

    And so it goes (with no surprises): Every administration tends to hire, fire and replace employees from political party or administration.

  • Me 215

    I’m sure you’re happy Sandra.

  • We Can Do This

    I hope she knew her days were numbered.

    That’s a white mans job.

  • You already know ?

    You pretty much covered it all..???????

  • IAmLegend

    Right lol

  • IAmLegend

    Thank you! LOLOL

  • Elevated Soul

    I hope she finds work but President Trump did the right by getting rid of her because of her obvious loyalty for Obama and the Demoncratic Party.

    Drain that swamp!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Why would I be happy that a sista lost her job? Wow…

  • Me 215

    President Obama is a brotha Michelle Obama is a sista. That never stopped you from being happy about the racist disrespect they had to deal with for 8 years.

  • dontgetblocked

    I would have fired her and anyone else connected with BO.

  • Elevated Soul

    Indeed……None of those people can be trusted.

  • Elevated Soul

    Obama ain’t no brotha.Obama is biracial meaning he is as White as he is African.He was taught to hate his African self.He don’t even like Blacks and neither does his fake wife. Both are users but too many Blacks with your “thought process” have no discernment to see it.
    .
    Obama made it clear that everyone except Blacks were a priority to him.

  • Faithz

    Everybody except Amberosa what ever her name need to get the he!! out of dodge if they was there when Obama was there, they
    should know they are going to get canned. Dam even
    Stevie Wonder could see that writing on the wall.

  • Faithz

    HMMM There is a lot of Blacks, who dislike blacks
    Just saying.

  • Faithz

    Obama is Mixed, though.

  • Faithz

  • Faithz

    ROTFLMAO…

  • Faithz

    Thanks for the Laugh!

  • Faithz

    Ain’t that the truth, I wouldn’t want to be no place close to no President, Regardless to who He is are what his name is, just saying.

  • Faithz

    Trump lives in the White House, But that place belongs to all of Us.

  • Faithz

    Tell It, thank you.

  • Faithz

    A friend of mine married a old fellow, and had a boy baby, and that baby hands looks old just like his old as dad.

  • Faithz

    ,,Exactly right on with that assessment.

  • Faithz

    Add to that Obama black/mixed As is as Smart , as a Whip, and
    Sharp as a Tack.

  • Faithz

    Nothing but the truth.

  • sherri2016

    It seems as though he is intimidated by successful black people just like a certain blog writer whose name I’ll fail to mention

    If the Trump administration did do so many shady things then they wouldnt have to worry about leaks !!!!!

  • Faux Gibbler

    It’s like any other employee Sandra. The Obama administration fired all of BUSh’s staff.

  • http://www.swedishsoul.com Christina Duphorn Zehnder

    that’s not true… Some of the staff Stayed.

  • EMILY POST

    Yes you cant have people who are not loyal in the white house…. and some of those Washington folks are more loyal to their party then their country….

  • Jussjess25

    I actually think they fired her because aint nothing going on in the whitehouse. Trumps family dont live there and they aint having any events. The place is a ghost town ever since that sicko took office. ?

  • Jussjess25
