Omarosa Manigault, an aide to President Trump, visited a conference for black journalists this weekend and was singled out for criticism. Liberal attendees clearly thought it was OK to go after her just because she works for Trump.
The New York Post’s Page Six reported:
Omarosa causes uproar at National Assoc. of Black Journalists conference
There’s some “heavy drama” in New Orleans at the National Association of Black Journalists conference after organizers decided to add top Trump aide Omarosa Manigault to a panel.
“The majority there don’t want her involved. It’s heavy drama — even the moderator is refusing. Everyone sees it as extremely offensive,” a source told us.
New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones was scheduled to moderate a panel on police brutality on Friday, which featured Valerie Castile, Sandra Sterling, and the New Yorker’s Jelani Cobb. Hannah-Jones and Cobb pulled out of the panel, and Bounce TV’s Ed Gordon stepped in to serve as the event’s moderator.
Cobb told Page Six that the reason for pulling out “wasn’t simply the addition of Omarosa. 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. Also, the panel was very disorganized, and basic things like format were not clear.”
CNN commentator and American Urban Radio Networks bureau chief April Ryan has distanced herself from Manigault since she became an aide to President Donald Trump. The veteran White House reporter alleged on CNN comrade Angela Rye’s podcast that Manigault — who works in the public liaison office — had tried to sabotage her career.

If it weren’t for double standards, liberals wouldn’t have any.
