Omarosa Manigault-Newman's Appearance at Black Journalists Convention Sparks Uproar

Omarosa's NABJ Appearance Was Very Tense Omarosa appearance at black journalist conference doesn't go well

The NABJ has long invited members of the White House administration to participate in its conference, the group said in an earlier statement to TheWrap, however given the current climate, Omarosa -who now serves as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison - was a particularly polarizing choice.

Manigault was not originally scheduled to be on the panel. Some in the crowd, including journalist Jamilah Lemieux and activist Britanny Packnett, reportedly turned their backs in protest as Manigault-Newman spoke.

Omarosa got so pissed when a moderator dragged President Donald Trump's name into a discussion about police brutality. she damn near left.

Manigault said that Trump's comments were not acceptable, but when pressed further about their discussions, she said that she would not "disclose confidential conversations with the president of the United States".

"First of all", began fellow panelist Arthur Reed, an author, "Freddie Gray was a black man, not a boy".

"Are you suggesting that I should just walk away?" she asked. "That's where the tone is set across the country".

Rajkumar is now working on " Sanjay Dutt Biopic " which is a biographical drama film based on actor's life. Speaking at the event, Ranbir said, "I think every role written in the film industry goes to him first".

Manigault then accused Gordon of being aggressive, saying that if Gordon and others in the audience had issues with the Trump administration, they should raise them with Trump.

"If you want to talk about Donald Trump, have a problem with Donald Trump", Manigault-Newman said.

But a line of conference attendees snaked through the hallways of the Hilton Riverside Convention Center, all anticipating what they would soon see when Manigault-Newman appeared: drama. Video shows him gasping "I can't breathe," 11 times. However, when she did take the stage, discourse immediately grew heated between Omarosa and Gordon. Finally, Gordon seemed to have had enough.

Before giving the microphone to Glover, Gordon called the panel a "quagmire" that had "reached the point of diminished returns".

"It would be foolhardy to assume that anyone would come here or that any journalist worth his salt or her salt would sit here and not ask certain questions", Gordon told the audience. Some of the planned participants and the original moderator for the panel pulled out after Manigault was added to the roster, Page Six reported.

Cobb told Page Six he too did not change his mind about participating just because Omarosa had been added.
