Omarosa Added to Trump Transition Team


Back in August reality star Omarosa Manigault, as the director of Donald Trump's African American outreach team, famously predicted everyone would have to bow down to President Trump after he won the election [click here if you missed that].

Omarosa collects her spoils...

According to reports Omarosa Manigault has been officially appointed to president elect Donald Trump's transition team.

While her title and exact duties are not known she was seen this week escorting Jim Brown and Ray Lewis through the lobby at Trump Tower for meetings with the president elect.

Don't knock Jim, he is truly for Black folks and has been working in gang infested areas for years helping Black youth. None of us can say the same thing....Jim Brown is a Civil Rights worker so don't confuse a natural man with that clown Lewis. Jim Brown played in movies that showed Black men as men and not wearing dresses! He went to hear what Trump plans to do for our people so calm your nerves people.All the Clintons ever did was sling your arses in jail and talk about you behind your backs. Research Mr.Brown.

I may not agree with Jim Brown's opinion of Trump but that doesn't make him a token or sell out in my book.
They say anyone who supports Trump is either racist or a sell out yet most Blacks had the nerve to support HILLARY and the democratic party.
They had me fooled in the 90's when the information wasn't readily available but it's out there now. There is no excuse.

@925-- what is Jim's opinion of Trump? Not being facetious, I'm genuinely asking as I have not read or heard anything.

Chrissy Snow said...

This is what I read:

"When he goes through what he went through to become the president, he got my admiration," Brown told reporters yesterday. "No one gave him a chance."
"I can't speak for [pastor Darrell Scott, from Cleveland Heights], but I fell in love with him, because he really talks about helping African-American, black people, and, uh, that's why I'm here," Brown said.

@Chrissy Snow.. yes Hillary made mistakes but Trump is unfit . All of us need to fight for what we believe in.. when you see folk holding hands up Neo Nazi style, bigotry and racist actions center in our face.. then no one should sit quietly. No I don't like Trump nor cabinet picks and never will.. I just want what's right for American people. Black or White.. if you wrong, then I'm not for it. Period!

Good for her. Hopefully they institute some positive changes for the country.

title and exact duties are not known, but she was seen escorting ray lewis and james brown thru the lobby for meetings with his nibs. that's her job.
you know how some white people can't speak to you directly, they need another black person to break the ice. that's omarosa's job explaining along the way how trump isn't really down with the kkk, neo-nazis or white supremacists.
there have always been sell outs and she is one.

I wonder if being on the transition team is the same thing as being a gofer?

Chrissy Snow said...

10:33 I am with you 100% on Trump, all I'm saying is Hillary is just as evil. The question is do you trust the person saying they hate you to your face or would you rather they work to sabotage you behind your back while smiling in your face?
I prefer neither and that's how I voted.

JDent said...

I agree with 10:33 and 1:01. The Clintons are dirty as fuck. LBJ was a racist too. But A. P. RANDOLPH and other black leaders worked with him to get the votes necessary for him to sign CIVIL RIGHTS Bill. Voting Rights etc.

I don't know white ppl who ain't racist on some level. Pouting and staying away from a discussion is childish and self defeating. I am not a fan. But my ancestors have lived and thrived under a LOT of SHITTY Presidents. I WILL DEAL.

1:01 is correct - Both Trump and Clinton are evil but sadly we're going to have to learn to work with Trump or get steamrolled over. He's not ANYONE'S friend but at least he'll tell you what he thinks of you to your face and it is what it is.

Jim Brown will work with almost anyone to talk about Black economic empowerment. Look at the entire sound bite of what he said about how gentrification is used to steal what's left of our wealth and community and the Black empowerment needed to revitalize urban communities.

Whatever you think of Jim Brown, he's been a strategic person all his life and an advocate for financial literacy when Messy Jesse and Uncle Al were SILENT on the mass incarceration and drug use (brought on by LBJ's "Great Society" programs) that were designed to break up the Black family and turn Black people into a permanent underclass.

I'm not a Republican or Democrat, but I do understand the veiled racist language of both parties (Liberals are patronizing and try to infantilize Black people as a means of control and the Right Wing scapegoats us.)

Neither party cares about us so we have to push through, be financially solvent and store money and resources for a rainy day so we can be independent if the Government cuts programs we'll be okay (like Asians) or if we have to run (like Jews.) I respect Jim Brown and I'm here for this.

2:09 this is 2:18 and I can't believe we're so much on the same page. Let people know! Black people have weathered worse storms but need to ORGANIZE financially!

JDENT said...

@2:20

I hear you loud and clear. Some black folks parroting Clinton. This bird Clinton squawking about being cheated. Cheating was fine as long as she was doing it to Bernie. I got zero sympathy. I totally agree about finances. Also get your passport. They take about 6 weeks to get.

The link is a photo of Clinton and.... SURPRISE

LOL at all the Trump love in this post. Are these imposters or real black people singing the praises of someone who told you your lives were miserable? Now when Trump's is cutting off grandma's social security and medicare be prepared to chip in.
Give Trump a chance, Trump is about making money for himself and his billionaire friends. Rest assured you mean nothing to him.

Seems like he's using her as a token and she's using the opportunity for the money it brings, even it means selling out like some say. Anything can go when there's money involved
