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.

Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates
President Donald Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
"President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.
