WATCH: Abuse survivor left in tears after encounter with Trump surrogate at post-debate event
After Sunday night’s debate, a young woman said that she tried to confront Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault over her continued support for Donald Trump despite his boasts of sexual assault — only to be coldly blown off.
Per Death and Taxes, reporter Christine Dubill on Sunday night went into the women’s room and found a young woman crying inside. She asked if the woman would like to talk about why she was upset on camera, and she consented.
The woman said that she was a survivor of an abusive relationship, and she wanted to ask Omarosa how she could continue to support Trump’s candidacy after a video emerged of him boasting that he could get away with grabbing women’s genitals because of his fame.
According to the woman, Omarosa behaved rudely during their interaction.
“I was fine when I was asking her, I’m very upset right now because she was dismissive and condescending,” the woman said. “Sorry, that I’m choking up. It just brought up a lot of emotion because I think that should be disqualifying for just basic human decency.”
After video of the exchange emerged, Omarosa went on a Twitter tirade alleging the woman was a paid actor being used to gin up unnecessary controversy.
