Omarosa Maginault, President Donald Trump’s public liaison, is apparently feeling the fallout from her support of the new Commander in Chief.

The former “Apprentice” contestant ran into hecklers while shopping for wedding gowns at Nordstrom in Tysons, Va., Saturday, Feb. 4, with five of her bridesmaids, The Washington Post reported. Maginault, who is engaged to Pastor John Allen Newman, posted about the outing on Twitter one day ahead of her 43rd birthday.

An insider for The Post who witnessed the incident said two unnamed women accosted Trump’s former director of African-American outreach, who notified store personnel about it at around 6 p.m. When Maginault allegedly told employees, “These fat ladies won’t stop following me,” the situation intensified.

“They were letting her have it,” the source said, noting one woman reportedly called the communications director “Trump’s whore,” likely for her consistent support for the controversial president, whom she has defended as not being racist.

“Look at my career, the wealth and exposure that I’ve had,” Manigault wrote in a December op-ed for The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s very difficult to make the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t like Black people and Black women.”

Maginault asked for store security personnel to get involved, at which point they tried to calm the situation, which was witnessed by 12 others, the newspaper’s source said. The officers ultimately asked the women to leave and they did. The White House confirmed Monday, Feb. 6, that Maginault was involved in a dispute with two women and was helped to her car afterward, having suffered a foot injury at Trump’s inauguration in January.

Nordstrom also confirmed the incident, which followed the store’s Feb. 2 termination of its relationship with Ivanka Trump. The luxury department store announced in Racked that it would no longer sell the president’s daughter’s brand, blaming poor sales.

“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” a Nordstrom spokesperson said. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”
