White House Chief Usher Angella Reid — who was the first woman and second African American to hold the position — has been fired, reports The Washington Post.
From The Washington Post:
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.
Reached by phone, Reid declined to comment, saying only, “I think it’s best if the White House explains.”
