Omarosa Spoke at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention and AHHHHHHHHHHH

"It's on the front burner because I'm pushing the issue and raising the issue", Manigault said to a booing audience. "So I turned my back on a White House that does the same to me", Packnett said in a tweet.

The panel took a turn for the worse when Gordon asked Manigault constant questions about her job with the Trump administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' tough rhetoric on crime and drug laws.

"Freddie Gray was a black man, not a boy". You see that type of mentality, and that's what's wrong with this whole situation right now ― too many of y'all looking at us as boys.

Gordon asked Manigault-Newman about what she had told the president after his remarks encouraging rougher treatment of suspects.

Instead of answering, Manigault-Newman urged the audience to get out their phones.

She said she was there to talk about her personal experience with violence, as some of her family members have been killed. The Google search brought up a reference to a meeting Manigault-Newman had with Garner's mother, Gwen Carr, in March. But the panel devolved after Manigault, director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, joined the discussion.

Drama reportedly ensued after conference organizers unexpectedly added Manigault to a panel, much to the displeasure of the other panelists already there. Finally, Gordon seemed to have had enough.

Manigualt walked off the stage when Gordon said it was a "quagmire" that had "reached the point of diminished returns", according to The Times. She was invited to join the day prior by NABJ President Sarah Glover.

The ruckus left some saying the conference never gave her a chance.

Gordon kept asking Omarosa if she had spoken to the president about the comments. Page Six reports that Nikole Hannah-Jones, a journalist with the New York Times, was scheduled to moderate the panel that also was to feature Valerie Castile and Sandra Sterling, as well as Jelani Cobb of the New Yorker. Cobb told the Post he was angry that Manigault was added at the last minute.

An anonymous source who spent years active in the black Republican community told the Daily Beast back in March that the reason everyone dislikes Omarosa is because "she has no mission or goal other than to make Omarosa the head sister in charge". She maintained she was working on the issue of police brutality in the Trump administration.
