Omarosa: Trump Protestors ‘Get What’s Coming To Them’ At Rallies (VIDEO)

While Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has come under fire for the violence some protestors experience at his rallies, a former “Apprentice” contestant and Trump surrogate said she thinks protestors simply get what’s coming to them.

Omarosa Manigault, a contestant on the first season of Trump’s reality show and a surrogate for his campaign, appeared on MSNBC Thursday night and was asked by host Chris Matthews about about outbreaks of violence at Trump’s rallies.

Manigault took a similar attitude to Trump‘s when it came to protesters getting roughed up at the candidate’s events.

“Donald can’t be responsible for every single person that comes to his rally,” she said. “Listen, you have a right to go into a closed, private event and you get what is coming to you. I do not condone violence. If you go into an environment where you’re interrupting 13, 14 times, do you expect a hug or ‘Kumbaya’?”

When asked if Trump provoked his crowds, Manigault blamed it on those so-called New York values.

“He’s a New Yorker, what do you want him to say?” Manigault asked. “He’s not gonna be pushed around, Chris.”

Manigault also butted heads with Francesca Chambers, a Daily Mail reporter who appeared on the program, after she insisted that there have been violent incidents at the Democratic candidates’ rallies that have not been reported in the press.

“I typically cover the Democrats, and I have never seen that kind of behavior go down out of a Hillary Clinton rally or a Bernie Sanders rally,” Chambers said. “Sure, it gets fiery especially at the Sanders rallies. A lot of booing for Hillary Clinton quite often but, however, no one’s ever when I’ve been at those rallies been punched.”

“Okay. Thank you, Francesca, for that insight, but let me just break this down for you,” Manigault said.

“No, it’s called reporting,” Matthews fired back at her.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
