*Omarosa Manigault, Donald Trump’s director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, reportedly brought her 39-person bridal party to the White House before getting married at the Trump International Hotel in Washington in April.
Manigault sent White House staff into a panic with her extended wedding photo session. According to Politico, “it’s unclear if the former
“Apprentice” contestant received permission for the shoot in advance, but security and White House aides were caught off guard and had to ban Omarosa from posting the pictures online, citing security and ethical concerns.”

Four unnamed White House officials told Politico that Manigualt staged an “extended wedding photo shoot” at the White House in her bridal attire — something that caught “fellow senior aides and some security officials” by surprise as “some lawyers and other senior aides were not briefed in advance.”
Her visitors were said to have “loudly wandered around” the Rose Garden and West Wing, sources told Politico.
The incident is said to be indicative of larger problems within her department, officials told Politico. The office has been disorganized, they said, and has already had a change in leadership since Trump took office.
Meanwhile, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the office has done valuable outreach work with veterans, religious groups, and African-American communities.
