On Friday, Omarosa Manigault-Newman became quite a hostile witness for President Donald Trump approach to the community of African Americans. Omarosa Manigault-Newman is the director of communications for the office of Public Liaison. She is also one of the few high-profile African Americans that work in the White House. She came into a panel that dealt with mothers who lost their children to police violence and brutality.
Ed Gordon of a news magazine on Bounce TV started asking Omarosa Manigault-Newman questions on how she is an advocate on behalf of young African-Americans. Especially with many of them are angered about President Donald Trump’s recent comments on policing. Before Ed Gordon rudely interrupted Omarosa Manigault-Newman, she was talking about how she, unfortunately, lost her brother and her father to violence. Although, Ed Gordon quickly changed the conversation and it only went south from there.
Omarosa expressed that she felt as if Ed Gordon was aggressive in his approach.
He stepped toward her when asking his questions about President Donald Trump. She then told the packed room of people that there is no need to be aggressive. She said being a part of any community is important. You have to inform people the status of the community to be a respectful advocate. She also adds that there is no need to walk away from the situation when you were a part of what is going on.
When Ed Gordon attempted to ask Mrs.Manigault-Newman to have a seat she proudly interrupted him. She said the president who is sending the signal to the United States police don’t have to treat suspects gently. Later, Gordon stated he tried his very best to keep the conversation as civil as possible. Even after Omarosa had said she did not want to hear any of his questions.
