Whhhhaaaaattttttt! These words uttered from the mouth of Omarosa Manigault are a bit jarring! She says the president-elect helped her become rich and famous! She defended his image in a personal essay for The Hollywood Reporter.
Here are some of the things she wrote
“I am Black, female, and Donald Trump is my friend,”
“I never observed any of the behaviors attributed to him. In my experiences with him, he has only been professional. I am aware of the perceptions. But he is open-minded. He does not judge people on their gender or race. He judges them on their ability to do the job.”
“He’s been very public about how he feels,” Manigault said. “That I contributed to ‘The Apprentice’ franchise and how I was his favorite contestant, contrary to what people say and believe about him when it comes to African-American women. Truly, I am living the American dream because of Donald Trump. Look at my career, the wealth and exposure that I’ve had. It’s very difficult to make the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t like Black people and Black women.”
“He allowed me to take my show … to a Black entrepreneur, Cathy Hughes, on a Black network, TV One,”
“It was a dating show, with an African-American cast. That point often is lost when people are trying to paint him with an ugly brush.”
Ummmmm, what do you think? Is she blinded or does she have a point…. You know what I personally think!
