Uproar Over Omarosa Manigault-Newman at Black Journalists Convention

Source: New York Times

NEW ORLEANS — The appearance of Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a White House aide, caused an uproar at a National Association of Black Journalists convention on Friday after she refused to answer some questions about President Trump’s recent remarks encouraging the police to be rougher while arresting criminal suspects.

Ms. Manigault-Newman, whose role in the Trump administration as an advocate on issues concerning African-Americans was also scrutinized, appeared at the annual gathering for a panel that was called “Black and Blue: Raising Our Sons, Protecting Our Communities.” It was moderated by a longtime journalist, Ed Gordon, a host at Bounce TV.

The event began cordially, but within minutes, it devolved into a shouting match between Ms. Manigault-Newman and Mr. Gordon. She interrupted him, accusing him several times of attacking her as Mr. Gordon pressed for answers about her role in the Trump administration and changes to criminal justice policies under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In one of the tensest exchanges, Ms. Manigault-Newman said, “Shame on you,” to Mr. Gordon. He replied, in part, “So here’s what you’re not gonna do,” before explaining that he would not let her “railroad” the event.

1. GOOD!!! That (a word that I can't call her here on DU, in spite of the fact that

she's evil and dumb as hell", needs her hair blown back. She acts as if her ass is plated in platinum. She's acting as the proverbial "house ******" my greatgrandparents told me about from their memories & what they'd been told older relatives from their experiences during slavery. DUMB ASS!!She won't be happy until the bastard she worships turns his demented, racist hatred on her... TOKEN, beyond belief.

3. Yes, just another reality star whose 10 minutes should have been up long ago.

But she was HIS reality star and that is her only qualification for anything. She kissed his lard ass.

4. About the nicest thing I can call her is an opportunist

in the worst sense of the word. I'm glad people are knocking her down a peg or two.

Now if someone would only extend the favor to the rest of that gang in the White House, especially their lunatic boss.

6. She is, what my mom called, (God rest her soul), willfully ignorant...

NO HOME TRAINING. She is NOT cute and the nonsense she spouts will come around and bite her in her nonsensical ass. She is worse, i my opinion, than Quisling. WE were dragged here as beasts of burden, AGAINST our will and for her sorry ass to proudly kiss his rubbery pasty ass, ( he looks like a boiled egg on legs), is beyond disgusting. EWWWW!

I also notice a trend in the latest group of black "republicans". They have NO shame and seemingly drop to their knees for the praise of completely yicky treasonous types. She doesn't know her relatively recent history, ie, the jewish capos who basically sold their fellow jews into the death trains in a HOPELESS & in some ways, Karmically horrific, attempt to save their own asses.... and we all know how that ended, don't we?

11. They basically had to

in order to establish that they made an attempt to "reach out to" Drumpf's "outreach" point person, but also to "out" her as a phony and a fraud.

9. IMO, Omarosa expected the uproar and welcomed it.

When you're a publicity whore, anything that keeps your name alive in the media is a good thing.
