Trump aide sparks convention uproar

Omarosa Manigault, former Apprentice victor and current Donald Trump aide, appeared on a panel about police brutality at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in New Orleans on Friday, and it was, in Trumpspeak, the greatest panel in the history of panels.

Omarosa Manigualt walked out of a panel at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in New Orleans Friday night after it devolved into chaos as attendees turned their back on the Trump administration aide and "Apprentice" star in protest. Video from the audience shows Omarosa pacing the stage at one point in a verbal showdown with Gordon after she was asked about her job within Donald Trump's administration, and the POTUS encouraging police brutality during a speech last month.

Pressed on Trump's comments and the topic of policing, Manigault said, "It's not even part of my portfolio", The New York Times reported.

Heading into the forum, numerous conference attendees said they were steeling themselves for the appearance of Ms. Manigault-Newman, who became famous on "The Apprentice" and has had several fiery exchanges with journalists.

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. Ms. Manigault-Newman interjected, "Are you suggesting that I just walk away?"

However, she was asked about her role in the Trump administration, and what - if anything - she's done for the black community.

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". "She went OFF, said that she was offended that anyone would belittle what she went through ..."

The argument erupted when Gordon, who was moderating the panel, repeatedly trashed President Trump and got snarky with Manigault.

"It's not a mess", she said.

Manigault-Newman was asked whether Trump's comments were appropriate for a commander in chief, and she replied simply, "No". She argued that Glover had invited her to talk about her personal experience with gun violence and that he was being dismissive.

She later mentioned that her tweet prompted a discussion between herself and a former NABJ president.
