(Newser) – Omarosa was booted from (or left) the White House, Robin Roberts dismissed her with a "bye, Felicia" on Good Morning America, and now Omarosa has declared a "black woman civil war" against the morning show host, Fox News reports. Omarosa had appeared on GMA Thursday to offer her side of things in the White House hubbub, and after the camera cut away from Omarosa's interview, in which she said she had a story she'd ultimately tell of her White House days, the camera turned to Roberts, who noted, "She says she has a story to tell, and I'm sure she will be selling that story. Yeah. Bye, Felicia." The soon-to-be ex-White House staffer (if her January resignation date still stands) says Roberts was "petty" for her remarks. More on the Omarosa storm swirling online:

  • "Bye, Felicia" was actually the "ultimate" way for Roberts to say her goodbyes to Omarosa, the New York Daily News notes. The paper rehashes the phrase's history and offers rapper Ice Cube's explainer on its essence, which is a way "to get anybody out of your face that's saying something stupid." It's originally from his 1995 comedy Friday.
