At the 2017 National Action Network Convention in New York City, political correspondent Angela Rye had some harsh words for Omarosa Manigault. Earlier that day, the former reality star and Trump aide told the The Associated Press that Black folks are not working hard to work with Trump.

“We’re here waiting, willing to work with the community,” Manigault said. “This president wants to engage. It’s not a one-way street.”

Well according to Raw Story, Rye wasn’t having it, and used Rev. Al Sharpton’s event as a stage to express her disgust and frustration with Manigault, who spoke right before her.

“I’m going to bring the fire right now,” Rye said.

“Moments ago, we were joined by your president’s apprentice. The truth is, when you tell somebody you’re going to fight for them, I’m going to tell you how not to fight for them.”

“You don’t fight for them by putting forth a tax reform plan that cuts corporate tax rates but ignores the poor,” she continued.

“You don’t fight for them by cutting taxes for the rich, and ensuring that burden is going to be on the backs of the poor and ordinary black and brown people.”

Raw Story noted that the audience roared as Rye “slammed the president and Manigault — including the racist ‘birther”/conspiracy theory that brought Trump into national politics.”

“How you don’t fight for [your community] is by trivializing our first Black president, Barack Obama, by questioning his citizenship, by questioning his validity. How you don’t fight for us is by pissing on me and telling me it’s rain.”

“Resist, y’all,” Rye concluded.

  1. Simple…Black on Black lynching and you’ll cheered. I guess you’d turn your back on your own family as well. It’s easy to tear down a person and walk away rather than putting in the energy to rebuild, it may be hard but the return is greater.

  2. Angela Rye is a INTELLIGENCE EDUCATED Black Women. She can sit at the table with any race, creed, or color, man or woman and have a civil conversation. Don’t HATE because she has it going on, knows her history and tells the TRUTH.

    Dump and Betsy Devo both of them had PRIVATE school only education and I just amaze me how black folks are knocking themselves out sending our brown babies to all white private schools to get the best education. If Dump was black and had gone to private schools all his life, black folks will light this board up along with the names of the schools as well. Talking bout he wanna see President Obama transcripts. We wanna see his school transcripts because if he got 5 fake notes to keep from going to war he also got fake notes to graduate college as well. Trump University finest.

  4. Jose’? Did your fake prez really say this in an interview:
    “I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart,” Trump said during the interview.

    “He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said, ‘There’s no reason for this.'”

    I believe like the rest of the world Andrew Jackson died in 1845 and the civil war started in 1861. Whattheworld!!!!!!
    Andrew Jackson was not a good president and this fool models himself after him.

    Your fake prez really needs a history lesson, lots of them. He must have gotten his degree from fake Trump University, he is the dumbest president ever.

        As stated before, America embrace their racists, they even honored these racist slave owners (all who owned them) by forcing Americans to carry them in their wallets, I use my debit card now so I won’t have to see their ugly leather faces. Works the same as cash.

  5. @Jose’
    When you re-read your comment, did it make sense to you?
    As far as your idol Prez Obama, how much do you think he should have charged? The first and only (so far) black POTUS, what’s the going rate for that?

    I cannot stand Omarosa. Her stupid ass cannot see that Chump is using her. He does not care anything about her. I am so glad that Ms. angela told her how it really is but the sad thing is I bet Omarosa still does not get it.
