Trump Knows What Good Management Is And Apparently White House Usher Did Not Measure Up

EXCLUSIVE: Trump fired White House's first ever female chief usher because she is a devout Hillary loyalist and he wants to replace her with a 'die-hard supporter'

  • Angella Reid, hired under Obama as the first black female White House chief usher, has been FIRED from the power position
  • The president wants her replaced with someone from the Trump Organization who is on Team Trump
  • 'Angella is and was the consummate professional, and she was always respectful to the president,' a White House insider told DailyMail.com, 'but she didn't go above and beyond'
  • She made no secret of the fact that she expected Hillary would be sitting in the Oval
  •  Reid was caught off guard by the firing, but she's being given a hefty exit package, says the insider
  • She was hired in 2011 and was only the second black person to have the job 
  • Reid joined the White House from the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain, where she was general manager of the Pentagon City location
  • Chief ushers are non-political appointees and typically serve multiple administrations 
Angella Reid, the first woman and second African-American to hold the position of White House chief usher, was fired because she made no secret of the fact that she remains a Hillary supporter and she refused to pander to the president. 
'Angella is and was the consummate professional, and she was always respectful to President Trump but didn't go above and beyond,' a White House insider told DailyMail.com. 'And she he made no secret of the fact that she was a die-hard Hillary supporter.'
'Angella was not expecting this, she was totally caught off guard,' added the source. 'But she got a hefty exit package to soothe any disappointment.' 
'We are very grateful for her service and wish her the very best,' an official told the Washington Post.

The chief usher more like a director of operations ar the White House. Reid was iresponsible for managing the residence overseeing all guests dignoevents.
The position is not political so it's highly unusual for someone to be fired from the position at the beginning of a new administration. There have only been 10 chief ushers since the position was officially created at the turn of the 20th century.
Reid, appointed to the position by President Obama, had only had the job for six years. 
Stephen Rochon, who was chief usher from 2007 to 2011 and was the first black usher, told CNN that the Trump transition team asked him to come back to 'run the house' but that he declined.

Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University, hypothesized that Reid was fired over Trump's paranoia.
'The Trump administration seems worried about Obama's spies, and there may have been a feeling that she wasn't on page with the Trumpians,' he told the Washington Post.
White House staff were notified Friday morning that Reid was no longer employed. 
Former White House staffers, such as Obama's deputy chief of staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, were outraged by Reid's dismissal.

'This is really some s***. Please RT so people know who 45 thinks is disposable,' she tweeted about the Post's report.
Reid oversaw daily operations at the 132-room mansion and its staff of over 90 plumbers, electricians, butlers, cooks and others.
The chief usher coordinates closely with the first family, and helps ensure things run smoothly at the Easter Egg Roll, state dinners and other events.
Reid joined the White House from the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain, where she was general manager of the Pentagon City location. 
In an interview with CNN last year, Reid gushed about her job. 
'What I think about most when I walk around the house is who has been here, who has done what in this particular space,' Reid told CNN last year. 'Because, you know, just to think that I am able to walk here now when 100 years ago, a president or first lady did, or other guests did, or some of my ancestors did.'
She added: 'It gives me a sense of awe, the fact that slaves built this house and I now work in this house as a leader, something out of my wildest dreams.'  
President Trump flew to New York City on Thursday for an event with the Australian prime minister. He is spending the weekend working out of his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
