Trump's White House Brings Chaos to Black Journalists Conference

167576 full Omarosa appearance at black journalist conference doesn't go well

Apprentice loser-turned-White House aide Omarosa Manigault was invited to speak on a panel about police brutality at the National Association of Black Journalists' annual convention this week.

These sort of professional media meetups are typically musty affairs with awkward smalltalk and cash bars.

Gordon later asked Manigault about Trump's comments about "roughing up" suspects while detaining them, and Manigault claimed that police brutality is an important issue to the Trump administration, but refused to elaborate on "private" conversations with the president.

NPR's Sam Sanders also tweeted that people were standing and turning their backs on panel, while others just walked out. Omarosa argued she agreed to do the panel to talk about her experiences, not to defend every word Trump has ever said. "You can ask a question, but I'm not going to listen to a lecture". When asked about her work with the Department of Justice on policing issues, Manigault-Newman responded, "Google me".

When she was pressed and hectored about "why she'd [taken] a job in an administration seen by many in the room as hostile to African Americans", Manigault reportedly reminded the audience "you don't walk away from the table". "Let me tell my story", Manigault-Newman told Gordon.

The panel ended abruptly when Ms. Manigault-Newman walked off the stage after Mr. Gordon said it was a "quagmire" that had "reached the point of diminished returns".

As the beef went on. video begins to play in the background showing Trump's recent comments encouraging cops to rough up people they arrest. But when he crossed the line by bringing up her late father and brother (who were murdered in separate incidents not involving the police), Manigault stood up, grabbed a microphone, and shut Gordon down.

Omarosa got out of her seat and paced the stage at one point, engaging in repeated back-and-forths with other panelists.

When Gordon turned to the topic of Trump, Manigault-Newman objected.

She said that part of the problem is an unwillingness of activists to come to the table.

Most of Omarosa's critics are within the broader black community, which is largely are flabbergasted by her loyalty to President Trump, rather than the minorities he often excoriates.

Her personal life was marred by tragedies.
