When news of Omarosa Manigault’s firing (or resignation) from her job in the Donald Trump administration went public last week, most of the reaction was joyous. Though the former reality TV star was basically the only high-level person of color in the administration, she reportedly was “despised” by her White House colleagues and seen as a terrible influence on the president.

Luckily, Omarosa appeared on Saturday Night Live to set the record straight. Well, it was Leslie Jones playing the role of Omarosa, who appeared on Weekend Update to give her own spin.

It was short and sweet and, well, pretty much perfect.
