Reality star and Donald Trump supporter Omarosa Manigault said the Republican presidential candidate cannot be responsible for the behavior of everyone at his rallies.
“You have a right to get into a closed, private event and you get what’s coming to you,” she said in an appearance on MSNBC Thursday.
“I do not condone violence, but if you go into an environment where you’re interrupting 13, 14 times, do you expect a hug or kumbaya?” asked the star, whose full name is Omarose Onee Manigault.
Host Chris Matthews pressed the issue of protesters getting rough treatment at Trump rallies, and asked Manigault to show proof of her claims that violence has broken out at rallies by other presidential candidates as well. Black Lives Matter protesters are everywhere, she said, and “they are prepared in any kind of environment they go into to make their point.”
In response to Matthews’ suggestion that Trump sometimes provokes violence with his rhetoric, the star of “The Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice” said, “He’s a New Yorker, what do you want him to say?” Insisting that the GOP front-runner is not inciting crowds, she added, “He’s not gonna be pushed around, Chris.”
