Omarosa Manigault-Newman is out of President Donald Trump's White House, and the media responses have not been kind to the former reality TV villain.

NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers recapped Omarosa's time in the White House by explaining how absurd the whole episode was.

"No one was ever really sure exactly what she did in the White House," Meyers accurately explained.

Omarosa has tried to downplay her reported firing by claiming she resigned.

“I resigned, and I didn’t do that in the residence, as [is] being reported,” Omarosa told Good Morning America, following reports she was fired. “John Kelly and I sat down in the Situation Room, which is a very secure, very quiet room in the White House.”

“Wow, the Situation Room,” Meyers said. “Though I have a feeling any room Omarosa goes into becomes a Situation Room.” 

The host continued, “Seriously, you know it’s bad when they have to fire you in the same place they killed Osama bin Laden.”

Meyers played the amazing media reactions to her firing, including Robin Roberts' meme-worthy, "Bye, Felicia."
