WATCH: Omarosa, Speaking to Al Sharpton, Doubles Down on Race-Baiting Rhetoric

Published

on

As crazy as Omarosa Manigault is, she sure knows exactly what to say to make the left cheer.

Remember, this was a woman they absolutely hated until about five minutes ago, when she cleverly uttered the words “Trump and racist” without the word “not” in the same sentence and became their new hero.

Manigault, a thrice-fired former White House employee who became a household name after acting like a psychopath on “The Apprentice”, joins adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the left’s canonization of anyone who they think might help them take down Trump (or at least craft sensationalist headlines in the process).

Fresh of the heels of rambling on about the mysterious “n-word” tape, Manigault spoke to legendary race-baiter Al Sharpton over the weekend and cleverly played right to his audience.

By that I mean, she ramped the racial rhetoric up to eleven.

Here is the exchange:

SHARPTON: Let me ask this. In terms of diversity in the White House, I’ve been in this as you know a long time, [in] civil rights, I can’t think of a president, even [a] Republican, from Nixon on that didn’t have a black in the West Wing in at least the discussions, in the senior administrative leadership until now. You were the most public face there, and even there, they didn’t want you in a lot of the meetings that you insisted to be in as I read the book.

MANIGAULT NEWMAN: That’s right.

SHARPTON: He’s the first president that has outright excluded – he can call me and other activists racist all he wants — he’s the only one with a lily white inner circle. Am I right?

MANIGAULT NEWMAN: You’re absolutely correct — and it’s much much worse than people even realize. There’s 30 assistants to the president right now. There are none representing the African-American community. There are SESs as well as Schedule Cs that make up the bulk of the appointments to each of the agencies, and the diversity in the agency is very sparse, and, in fact, when we submitted candidates, they were rejected over and over again. And I will tell you that they haven’t even made an attempt to replace anyone in OPL to do the African-American outreach; they just kind of detailed a guy over for just three months, I think to do a little window dressing, but there is really no real commitment to diversity in the White House.

And he’s unapologetic about it because he’s completely contradicted the commitment he made when he did that campaign of “what do you have to lose?” Well, clearly we have to lose a voice, an advocate, someone who understands the issues and knows how to reach out to [the] community. We have a lot to lose, and in fact, we’re losing right now because Donald Trump is disingenuous about his engagement and his outreach, and in fact, I believe he wants to start a race war in this country.

Predictable.

When is the left going to try something new?

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
