Omarosa Heckled at Black Journalists Conference

Omarosa Manigault, the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison, engaged in a contentious exchange Friday during an appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists' convention in New Orleans.

Manigault-Newman was asked whether Trump's comments were appropriate for a commander in chief, and she replied simply, "No".

"The majority there don't want her involved". The panel was supposed to feature Valerie Castile, Sandra Sterling, and the New Yorker's Jelani Cobb.

Omarosa got so pissed when a moderator dragged President Donald Trump's name into a discussion about police brutality. she damn near left. But when asked what she told Trump after the speech, Manigault-Newman said, "I don't disclose confident conversations with the president".

As she fended off questions about Trump, Manigault at one point accused the moderator of being "aggressive", took the microphone, and chose to stand up and walk the stage. "You don't walk away from the table because if you're not at the table, you're on the menu".

Some in the crowd had turned their backs on Omarosa when she came on stage for a panel while others heckled throughout, making attempts at hearing her answers hard at times. "I'm sure we'll have plenty of time about Donald Trump". Thus far, the actions of this White House have been deeply detrimental to black people and reversed progress on ending police violence.

Moderator and broadcast journalist Ed Gordon stepped in at the last minute, but he sparred with Manigault, nearly as soon as she stepped on stage.

HeavyOmarosa joins the NABJ panel.

All day Thursday, as word spread that Manigault would be on the panel, attendees expressed private dismay that she had been invited to participate with the relatives of Castile and Sterling, even after Trump's comments about police treatment of suspects.

It's worth pondering why the NABJ would invite a B-list reality TV star, who's reportedly threatened to release "dossiers" of information about journalists covering the White House, in the first place. "She wanted to kill my career". Ryan declined to comment when asked about Manigault's appearance at the conference. On Friday she was part of a panel at a black journalists conference that ended with the audience protesting her participation. "It's kind of just, like, what's the point?"

At one point, she accused the moderator of making light of her family's tragedy, which he denied.
