Black journalists' panel erupts in anger after speaker Omarosa Manigault says this

Black journalists' panel erupts in anger after speaker Omarosa Manigault says this”

According to an unnamed source who spoke with The New York Post, Omarosa Manigault caused a serious stir after appearing at the National Association of Black Journalist's annual meeting in New Orleans. "Ask me a question about me".

"I fight on the front lines every day", Manigault-Newman said, provoking laughter and groans from the audience. "Because if you're not on the table, you're on the menu".

Becoming more combative with her fellow panelists, Manigault told another panelist "Google me" her after she was asked about her work with the Department of Justice on police issues.

At one point, Ms. Manigault-Newman accused Mr. Gordon of brushing aside her relatives' deaths.

She began by telling the story of the loss of her father and brother to violence in Youngstown, Ohio, a story that she said has allowed her to understand the pain of families who have lost children or loved ones to gun violence. "Next question." Trump had earlier said police officers should not be "nice" to people when they were detaining.

"When you try to kill me and my career because you want to advance yourself, because you are now making money after not making money from selling cell phones, and now you're making $180,000 a year, good for you", Ryan added.

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.

And the panel went sideways when Manigault and Gordon had a heated confrontation.

The crowd became increasingly angered with Manigault's seeming refusal to answer questions about the Trump administration. "Honestly it was a total mess but one that accurately shows the divide between the mindsets of the African American community in this country today", she said.

"It was that she was added at the eleventh hour and it was unclear whether we would be able to discuss substantive issues regarding the administration and its policing policies".

At the event, Manigault was not welcomed by numerous conference goers, some of whom turned their backs on her as she was speaking while others had walked out. "Her personal experience is her personal experience".

NABJ President Sarah Glover at one point faced the audience herself to explain Manigault-Newman's appearance at the conference.
