Omarosa Manigault, who is a special assistant to President Donald Trump, is not known for being a shrinking violet.
When she faced a panel of essentially hostile people at a conference, she let them know she was not going to be pushed around.

Manigault smacked down BET host Ed Gordon when he got aggressive during a panel discussion at the National Association of Black Journalists conference in New Orleans.
The argument erupted when Gordon, who was moderating the panel, repeatedly trashed President Trump and got snarky with Manigault.
Gordon claimed Trump was promoting police brutality when he joked last month about cops being too easy on violent criminals during arrests.
Omarosa refused to give him any satisfaction.
But after he kept pressing, she let him have it.
When Gordon wouldn’t let up and kept trashing Trump, Omarosa got annoyed. But when he crossed the line by bringing up her late father and brother (who were murdered in separate incidents not involving the police), Manigault stood up, grabbed a microphone, and shut Gordon down.
“Don’t be aggressive,” Manigault said. “Ask your questions but don’t lecture me.”
Omarosa’s presence had created a firestorm even before this incident.
New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones — who was originally booked to moderate the panel — pulled out because of Omarosa being invited.
Several of the people in the conference were upset that she had been invited because of her connection to Trump.
That, of course, made her suddenly ‘not worthy’ except for attack.
They can’t stand diversity of thought.
Liberals, always the least ‘liberal’ and tolerant people in the room.
