White House Fires Chief Usher–First Woman In Job

May 5, 2017

One can have theories about this one that makes Trump not look good.  Maybe Trump thought he could grab her and she kneed him.

The Washington Post reports.

“The White House has fired its chief usher, Angella Reid, the first woman and second African American to hold the position. When the White House residence staff arrived at work Friday morning, they were told that Reid was no longer employed, according to someone with knowledge of the dismissal. A White House official confirmed that Reid is no longer working at the White House.

“‘We are very grateful for her service and wish her the very best,the official said. Despite the unusual title, the chief usher oversees all activities in the White House residence and works as general manager of the building, handling everything from the large staff of butlers, maids, chefs, florists and electricians to fiscal, administrative and personal duties….

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