‘As a Woman of Color…’ Joy Reid Confronts Omarosa Over Trump ‘Attacks’ on Minorities

joy reid omarosaMSNBC’s Joy Reid confronted Donald Trump surrogate (and ex-Apprentice contestant) Omarosa this morning about the fact that other former Apprentice contestants are coming out to denounce Trump for hateful rhetoric.

Omarosa dismissively said that they’re clearly all big Democrats and found the timing very interesting. “If they were really concerned about Donald Trump,” she asked, “why wait until now?”

Reid highlighted Trump’s YUGE unfavorables before pressing her on the substance of the disagreements with Trump. She brought up Trump’s hedging on endorsements from white supremacists, “attacks on immigrants, attacks on Mexican-Americans,” and she asked, “As a woman of color, do you have not concerns about this?”

Omarosa responded, “Donald Trump is starting a revolution, he’s going to make a lot of people uncomfortable, okay?”

She touted the broad and diverse coalition Trump has been attracting in primaries across the country.

Reid shot back, “You know that the Republican primaries so far have been more than 90 percent white, they have not been diverse.” Omarosa retorted that’s just “the tradition in the Republican primary” and not Trump’s fault.
