#EndorseThis: Flint Pastor Stops Trump When He Goes Off Script

Share

Want to be featured in our daily #EndorseThis column? Here’s an idea: Invite Donald Trump to your hometown to deliver an explicitly apolitical address to your parishioners, then discipline him when he (predictably) strays from the script.

That’s what Rev. Faith Green Timmons of Flint, MI did Wednesday, and boy was it about time.

One video clip of Trump’s speech at Bethel United Methodist Church begins during Trump’s criticism of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and then of Hillary Clinton. In no time, Timmons enters stage left, interrupting Trump’s speech to remind him to stay away from politics.

“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech,” she said to Trump, who, interrupted in the middle of another pre-written speech, wrapped up quickly after that.

“Oh, oh, OK, OK, OK. That’s good,” Trump said. “Then I’m going to go back onto Flint, OK.”

“I thought he wanted to see that we gave out food and water, and when his statement went beyond what he originally said, I asked him to stick to what he was originally going to say,” Timmons told the Detroit Free Press afterwards. “He’s welcome to come and see what we’re doing in Flint. We’re doing well. We’re helping those in need. And I wanted him to see the best of Flint.”

Timmons also admonished congregants who heckled Trump.

Donald Trump is not the kind of presidential candidate to let a pastor go unanswered. So this morning, he launched into a Trumpian damage control routine, saying Timmons had planned the interruption and that she was “a nervous mess.”

“Something was up because I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me,” he told Fox & Friends on Thursday morning. “Everyone plays their games, it doesn’t bother me.”

In a now-deleted Facebook post before the event, Timmons had written, “HE WILL NOT USE US, WE will EDUCATE HIM!!!” After the event, she followed up: “Had he stuck to what his camp claimed he came to do we would not have had a problem! – Good night.”

Why the heckling from attendees of Trump’s speech? According to NPR’s Scott Detrow, they were asking Trump about a lawsuit filed by the Nixon Justice Department (and later settled in secret) alleging that Trump discriminated against black applicants to his apartment buildings in the ’70s.

    PLEASE READ THIS FOR THE CONTEXT. I DON’T KNOW THE PASTOR WHO WROTE THIS, BUT HE’S BEEN READING MY MIND…. AND DONE A GREAT JOB OF PUTTING EVERYTHING IN PERSPECTIVE…..I HOPE AND PRAY THIS FOR YOU IF YOU’RE ALSO STRUGGLING ABOUT THIS ISSUE…….

    Is Donald Trump good for America? I mentioned Sunday that I would speak on this next week. Unfortunately, I felt I was shoehorning this topic into my planned message. To properly present what I want to speak on Sunday, I may have to leave the Donald out of it! Let me take a minute for those that wonder and give some thoughts. When I first heard that DT was entering the race last year, I told my wife that I felt that it was a good thing for the party and America. I knew that he was not a “saint,” but I knew that he would be like a bull in a china shop. He is a disrupter and I believe America could use a fresh thinker especially in the political arena. I didn’t think he would get the nomination, but felt it would shake up politics as usual. I was correct on the shaking up part.

    Lance Wallnau likens him to a biblical Cyrus. Someone who is
    dynamically used of God even though not perceived by many as a God
    follower. God has used many people in history that I would probably
    not like or agree with. I’m not sure I would have liked the
    disciples, or David, or Moses. Somehow, God did not seem compelled to
    consult with me! : )

    I have always liked Winston Churchill. He is seen as one of the
    greatest national leaders in the 20th century. Last year, I had the
    privilege of going through the War Museum in London. Churchill is a
    key feature. His life is controversial. He was not always celebrated
    as a great leader. He was a bombastic, cigar smoking, at times crude,
    even misogynistic leader. It is alleged that he told off color
    stories to his children before bedtime! A woman once told him he was
    disgustingly drunk. His response was “My dear, you are disgustingly
    ugly, but tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be ugly!”

    There are many websites that discuss the outlandish comments and
    activities of this great world leader. He had exactly what was needed
    to stop Hitler at the Channel, to rouse a nation to never give up and
    to partner with America to find final victory in Europe. You wouldn’t
    want him as your pastor, maybe not even your father, but he was the
    right leader for that moment in England’s history. Such a brazen man
    that would go up to the roof of his quarters in central London and
    smoke cigars as Hitler’s air force bombed all around him. I’m not
    sure I would have voted for him….but he was the right man.

    I think it would be awesome to have a righteous leader, that
    understood the intricacies of the economy, health care, defense,
    immigration, with great sensitivity to religious institutions, a heart
    for the poor, a vision for the future. If that leader was a praying
    person, formidable in the word of God and loved the local church, I
    would rejoice! I do not think that is the choice we will have in
    November.

    Instead….we will look for someone who is imperfect, yet will fit the
    times we are living in. Particularly, that ‘whoever’ we vote for, it
    will be someone who might possibly have the opportunity to appoint up
    to three supreme court justices. That could shape our culture in
    America for the next 30 years…radically. The America of our
    grandchildren could be very different….and that may not be good. We
    cannot stay still. A non-vote is a passive vote for a direction we
    may regret.

    So….is DT good for America? I honestly believe that he has been
    already. He has shaken the political system. Does the fact that the
    ‘superior’ acting George Will says he will vote for Hillary change my
    opinion of who I will vote for-NOT AT ALL. Do some of Trump’s
    comments offend me? At times. Do I agree with all he says? Not at
    all. Is he a “Cyrus” that is being raised up by God to preserve
    America? Time will tell.

    This I know. I will vote for the best chance for America. I will
    pray for our leaders as I have already. In the end….God will
    continue to be my source and my hope. I do believe that God has had a
    hand in America’s history. I hope HE also will have a hand in its
    future.

    Another one: Subject: A Message for Reluctant Christians about Donald Trump by Wayne Allyn Root

    I am a Jew turned evangelical Christian. I am also a passionate
    supporter of Donald Trump.

    I have a message for Christians who don’t like Donald Trump: “YOU’RE
    MISSING THE BOAT.”

    Christians have Trump all wrong. God sends messages in many forms.
    You’re just not listening. God is talking, but you’re eyes and ears
    are closed.

    Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us:

    “A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof of his home with
    massive flooding up to 2nd floor.

    Rowboat comes. He says, “No, I’m waiting for God. I’ve prayed and I
    know he’s coming.”

    2nd rowboat comes. “No, I’m waiting for God.”

    3rd rowboat comes. “No, I’m waiting for God.”

    Water rises. The man drowns. Now he’s meeting God in heaven. The
    religious man says, “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”

    God says, “I sent you 3 rowboats. Are you blind?”

    Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
    Maybe God is trying to tell us something important – that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished.
    Maybe the rules of gentleman don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and
    “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.

    Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford
    or Paul Ryan? Did any of them win? Did they lead the GOP to “the promised land?” Did they change the direction of America? No, because if you don’t win, you have no say.

    Paul Ryan couldn’t even deliver his own state Wisconsin!

    And as leader of the House, Paul Ryan rolls over to Obama like my dog
    rolls over for a scrap of food, or a steak bone. He’s a useful idiot. Nice, but obedient. I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog. My dog is actually a pretty good defender and loyal.

    Maybe God is knocking on your door so loud, but you’re not listening.
    Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time.
    Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead.
    It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone.
    Finished. Kaput. Adios.

    And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last
    second, is someone different.Someone you haven’t ever experienced
    before – because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where
    nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive,
    outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant
    too.

    Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church.

    Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat
    Hillary, and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media
    who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.

    I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then
    you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary God is a
    pretty tough guy. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and
    destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.

    Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like
    Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.

    When we won WWII, was God “nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating
    Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we
    gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan? Is God ever “nice”
    on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious ones like General
    George S. Patton, so the good guys can defeat evil?

    It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.”
    That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God
    understands that.

    Maybe God purposely sent Trump instead of the nice Republican powder
    puffs like Paul Ryan, or Mitt Romney, or John Kasich because he wants
    us to win.
    And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and PaulRyan aren’t nice at all – because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America. And God can’t allow that.
    Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
    Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it.
    Maybe they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that
    would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.

    I was reading the Bible this morning and I found the perfect verse
    that explains the success of Donald Trump”Even the youths shall faint and be weary,And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isiah 40:30-31)
    It’s almost like God created this verse for Donald Trump and this moment in history. Trump is our energy. More energy than any candidate EVER. He took on the 16 best candidates in GOP history … all younger than him … all with better political credentials … and destroyed them with his energy. You mean that kind of energy in a 70-year old isn’t inspired by God?
    Trump renews our strength. Or does the all-time record turnout and
    all-time record votes for a GOP presidential primary candidate not
    define “strength?”

    With Trump we mount up with wings like eagles. With Trump as our
    leader there is nothing we can’t do. Any man that can build
    skyscrapers in Manhattan and vanquish 16 presidential opponents, while
    spending almost nothing … can lead us to the heights of eagles.

    With Trump we run, we are not weary. Just when we get tired of the
    fight against Obama, Hillary, big government, big business, big media,
    big unions … just when it all seems impossible to overcome the
    powerful forces of evil … along comes Trump to re-energize us.

    Trump inspires us. Trump gives us hope. Trump gives us confidence in
    victory. Trump gives us just a touch of arrogance. Maybe God
    understands that’s exactly what we need right at this late stage to
    save America.
    God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.
    So let me repeat my message to Christians: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”

    I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat.
    Except he’s more like a battleship!

    No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a
    perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a
    capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time.

    Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him
    the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism,
    capitalism and Judeo-Christian values.

    The choice should be easy for Christians. It’s Trump … or it’s the
    end of the America.

      Wow!! Someone who is supposed to be a Christian would actually think God would use a person who is the immage of the Devil himself for some kind of good works?? What kind of nut is he and are you??

      Yes, God used Paul who was actually killing Christians to bring the Gospel to the gentiles but that was because God could see through Paul’s heart that he was genuinely misguided over what he was doing; and God saw that in reality Paul thought he was doing the right thing.

      While in contrast, Donald Trump knows full well that everything he stands for and has tried to achieve in his life is a total contradiction to everything Jesus gave his life to teach us. Donald Trump is deliberately acting exactly like Satan would – constantly working to fill his life with mammon – worldly things with no regard whatsoever for God.

      Even though God clearly said that we cannot love Him and worldly things.

      You are one really misguided fool just like that pastor you supposedly quoted.

            As long as you ask, although you’ll laugh it off as nothing, here are just a few. There are hundreds but let’s start here

            1. Hillary Clinton is a liar. I don’t mean this as political conjecture, but a proven, verifiable liar. She lied about the Irish peace process, her vote in favor of the Iraq war, her reason for illegally using a personal email server, that her family was dead broke when they left the White House, about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia, where Chelsea was on 9/11, who she was named after, Benghazi… and the list goes on. We don’t need a liar-in-chief. We tried that already. It didn’t work.

            2. Hillary Clinton defended a child rapist. And laughed about it. If you don’t know this story, you need to. Read all about it. I repeat. She defended a child rapist… and laughed about it.

            3. Hillary Clinton accepted millions of Dollars from foreign governments. While serving as Secretary of State, The Clinton Foundation (illegally) accepted boatloads of cash from countries that fund Hamas, harbor terrorists, suppress women, and regularly execute gays and lesbians. Conflict of interest much?

            5. Hillary Clinton wants women to shut up. At least all of the women who tried to come forward regarding her hubby’s sexual harassment, misogyny and overall perpetuation of “rape culture“. She referred to these victims as “trailer trash” and even went so far as to threaten one of the victims in person.

            6. Hillary Clinton is not a champion of the middle class. Despite her campaign slogan, she is definitely not just like you. Hillary Clinton was married to a President, had a personal chef, flies in a environment polluting personal jet, has sent her daughter exclusively to private schools, and makes about $200K for every speaking engagement. That’s so you, right? And your middle-class neighbors – they’ve got a private jet out back, yeah? Although this could go back to the lying part!

            If someone tells me it is raining outside, that is what they think. If I go to the window and see it is raining outside, then that is a fact. A provable fact would be to delineate the supposed lies so we can fact check them and not with Breitbart of Newsmax, but Time, Newsweek, films of the speeches that have not been photo shopped. I am not a Republican nor a Democrat. I am not an Independent. I feel like I can search out facts and make decisions of my own. I do know, that what the Republican Party has become, I would not be one of those fascists.

            I meant to especially comment on your item #1: A Trump supporter suggesting that Hillary is a liar is the most ridiculous thing ever posted on the National Memo.

            PolitiFact in fact checking Trump has proven that Trump lies more than 90% of the time; less than 10% of what spews from Trump’s mouth is the truth or even remotely true.

            While in contrast, PolitiFact says that, given that 50% of what Hillary says is true, which is actually very good for a campaigning politician.

            And that can be clearly shown by the fact that virtually all the GOP candidates that were running PolitiFact found that less than 30% of what they claimed was true.

            So to try and compare Hillary who’s truthful 50% of the time or more; against Trump who is truthful less than 10% of the time is about as ridiculous as it gets!!

            Sorry lowlife, I’m not a liberal, I’m an independent. I vote for who’s the most qualified – not the candidate that fits some misguided ideology like conservatism that has been hijacked by crooked politicians.

            And if you really think Trump can bring some kind of change to America, you’re like virtually all of Trump’s supporters – dumber than a rock. The President can’t accomplish much of any changes without the support of Congress. And the GOP leaders, just like the Dem leaders, are opposed to a great deal of the BS changes Trump keeps misguidedly thinking he can make on his own as President. Trump keeps thinking the President is like a CEO WHICH HE IS NOT!!! So if you’re supporting Trump because you think he’s going to bring some change – you really are stupid!!!

            And just for your nitwit information, America doesn’t need change other than getting rid of Republicans; Obama has set America on the right direction and our country would make some real headway if the GOP would stop being obstructionists. If the GOP hadn’t been saying NO to almost everything Obama proposed – there’s no telling just how much further better everything in America would be today.

            And even given the GOP’s 24/7 opposition, American leads the world today by far in economic growth over the past 7 plus years. More jobs have been created during Obama’s time than under all 12 years of the two Bushes.

            And despite the party of NOs 24/7 obstructionism, America has achieved a number of milestones under Obama:

            For the 1st time in history, America is the world leader in the production of oil and gas – surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia. Which is one of the reasons gas has been hovering just over $2/gal for over a year.

            Not only that, but more progress has been made under Obama on alternative energy research, than under all previous presidents combined. That’s why solar is now cheaper than burning coal, why Tesla is building electric cars that will soon make gas-powered cars obsolete. Why it will be within the next ten years that fossil fuels will be nothing but backup energy; it already is in Germany.

            And for the first time since the stock market crossed 3,000, the market has tripled in 8 years – from around 6,600 when Obama took office to over 18,500 just the other day. This helps retirees like me immensely. After struggling for years under a dimwit Republican.

            And for only the 3rd time since 1900, America will go for a period of more than 7 years without another recession starting – and all of those times have been when a Democrat was in office (when the American economy actually went through a two-term president’s time in office without a recession beginning). And not having a recession reduces the struggles that millions of Americans have to deal with because of being jobless or fearing being laid off from work.

            And for the first time in history, the healthcare uninsured rate in America has dropped to around 10% from more than double that under Bush – making life much easier for millions of Americans. Not only helping individual citizens but actually helping the economy – because millions of Americans have over the past couple years been able to spend money they were holding back because they didn’t have health insurance and therefore were saving in case they had a medical emergency. So having health insurance let these people actually live better lives too – to spend a little without fear.

            And because Obama started a war on fraud in the health and defense industries when he took office, more crooks have been found defrauding our government and brought to trial and sent to prison than under any 2-3 previous presidents combined – with billions of fraudulently gotten monies recovered from would be crooks.

            And because Obama used his executive authority to cut the banks out of the student loan process, a larger percentage of high school graduates have been able to get loans for college than under any previous president; and at lower interest rates.

            And I could go on for a while on the positives Obama has brought to America.

            So I challenge you to list just 2 or 3 positives that you can dream up that any Republican has brought to America which was really intended to be a plus for other than the upper 10% or America’s corporations/businesses.

            Come on, list two actual positives that gives you reason to support a party that over the past 100 years has been nothing but a disaster for America while they were in office and even for years after they left office.

            As just an example of the idiocy you spew let’s take California as an example.

            What explains California’s life expectancy numbers? Is it high taxes and lots of regulations? No.

            California’s white, Hispanic and African-American residents have roughly an average life expectancy. So do California’s Asian citizens, but Asians (regardless of what state they live in) have an extraordinarily long life expectancy. And California is home to an exceptionally large number of Asians. California’s Asians don’t live appreciably longer than Alabama’s or Louisiana’s, but there are vastly more of them. So is California’s overall longer life expectancy a triumph of liberalism? No, it is an artifact of demographics.

            And exactly why are you picking on the longevity of Americans in California?? There are 9 non-Republican led states where people live to ages 80 and over and California is not one of the states where people are projected to live to 81 – those states are Hawaii and Minnesota.

            And why would people in states like New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and Connecticut along with Hawaii and Minnesota live to 80 and over; while people in almost have of the states run by Republicans are only projected to live to 74-77??? While no Blue State has a longevity projection of less than 78??

            Because its idiot Republicans who insist on cutting funding budgets in the states that they govern which result in most red states having poor health care delivery systems; poor police and fire protection; too lax of regulations on businesses; and little if any funding for programs that keep the poor and less advantaged alive.

            All of which results in people in Republican led states dying younger because of the lack of proper healthcare, and in homicides due to the added violence in red states; and in work-related accidents; and even at birth where 12 of the 15 states with the highest infant and maternal mortality rates are Republican governed states.

            Fact is there clueless, Republican led states lead the nation in every form of dying younger than expected – which is why people in non Republican-led states live 2-6 years longer than the hellholes that Republicans create and call states – when there really nothing more than the cesspools of America no better than quasi 3rd world places to live.

            nd what’s really sad is dummkopfs like you and apparently the brainwashed millions who live in these states that are no better than Bangladesh – don’t even realize the terrible conditions under which they are being forced to live by the disastrous governance of the Republicans they keep voting into office.

            If any of your points has any resonance then Trump is the only one who stands a chance of change. If you haven’t noticed he’s not a Republican but a man for the people, all politics aside. Common sense is what we need and what we’ll have Jan. 17

      I’m a Christian, also. frankly, you lost me with the convert. Yet, I do know God loved his beautiful angel Satan and when he went one step too far, kicked him out of heaven. God loved David, second king of Israel BUT when HE went too far, he could not build the first temple. God helped Moses to lead the Israelites out of bondage BUT when he went too far, he was prevented from entering that land 40 years in the making. Bit crude? You cannot prove he has EVER entered a church. Spare me. That’s the one thing I want to know. They vilified Obama and his minister and you cannot tell me his religious denomination, if any and his house or worship, IF ANY!!

            Whether he is a true Christian or not really isn’t the issue. The issue is that perhaps he’s been sent at a time when our country and the world needs a no nonsense individual that will make decisions that are non biased and based on plain old common sense. One does not need to be a bible thumper to possess those qualities and God knows it. We are not electing a pastor or a Sunday school teacher we are electing a LEADER and Trump has those attributes.

            It didn’t matter with the founding fathers most if not all of whom were immigrants. George Washington was a distance Heir to the British throne. Yet, they kept religion out of it all. Yet, today, it comes up allll the time. In my womb, mainly. He knows nothing. He will do nothing. He will get nothing done UNLESS republicans keep the both houses and cock block him like they did Obama. My guess is a whole lot of hot air. They will not let him. He admits his is a show man and you people fall for it. He didn’t know what Brexit was. My 10 year old granddaughter can quote the constitution to you, she learned on her won this summer. SHE knew what Brexit was. She watched him one day and asked how can an idiot be president. A ten year old. What does that make the rest of YOU!!??

      When you wrote, “I think it would be awesome to have a righteous leader, that
      understood the intricacies of the economy, health care, defense,
      immigration, with great sensitivity to religious institutions, a heart
      for the poor, a vision for the future. If that leader was a praying
      person, formidable in the word of God and loved the local church, I
      would rejoice!” I thought you were talking about Hillary Clinton. Although I admit she is not perfect, and has her faults, I believe that quote describes her reasonably well. But then you went on to make a lot of arguments for supporting Donald Trump. Your arguments could just as well justify choosing to support Adolf Hitler over Albert Schweitzer because Hitler was a strong leader and warrior who inspired people and gave them hope (as long as they were Aryan Germans, and not Jews or other “inferior” races).

    Scumbag. Narcissistic scumbag. He owes Rev. Timmons an apology. She will never get it. He said he has never apologized to anyone and it’s obvious he won’t start now. Instead of being a responsible adult, he attacks her claiming she set him up. No dumba$$ she never set you up. Your lying got you reprimanded for doing something you promised not to do.
    You also said in Flint that if you had been president the lead poisoning of the drinking water would not have occurred because your EPA would have been on top of it to stop it before anyone was hurt. First, water purification is handled at the local level although they must meet state and federal regulations. Second, you said you are doing away with the EPA. So just how would your nonexistent EPA protect anyone? Leave it to you to exploit a tragedy to promote yourself. You have a lot of experience doing that.

      From Donald’s perspective – the Flint water problems all happened to the rabble – why should I concern myself with that.

      I doubt Donald paid much if any attention to those news articles or any other similar news articles that mostly impact those who are disadvantaged (unlike him in his ivory towers).

        I keep telling people that he has NO concept of the middle class and the poor and how they live and what they go through on day-to-day basis. He speaks like he does, but rich people have an entirely different mind set….they have NO concept of how it is to live from paycheck to paycheck because they’ve never had to do it! He keeps saying he’s going to help the middle class, but the ideas that he has will only cause them grief! Even his tax plan will end up costing the taxpayers AND the country a great deal of money and put the deficit into space!!! When you have a lot of money, you have NO idea how the other half lives that don’t have it!!! He has NO plans that will help the poor or middle class in this country….he’ll only cater to the 1%! Not sure why people can’t see this!

The morning after Brexit, while bragging about his remodeled golf resort in Scotland, when asked about it, he looked like he had no clue just mumbled some nonsense and CNN to their GREAT stupidity, said nothing. Oh, Chris did, amazingly, in the studio in utter befuddlement but none of the reporters the scene. I always suspected this but THAT moment solidified it for me. Not one thing has changed since, either. Still ignorant beyond reason.

    The joke will be on the Frump. He is spending a lot of money, lost a lot of business, and will need to cut ties with all his other businesses. That would be several Billions of dollars. Does he even realize that the pay for being President is a teeny tiny fraction of that and that he will be in debt until the cows come home? He is supposed to be business smart, but he shows no business smarts here. He should have checked that all out before he decided to run for President. The President doesn’t get paid what the CEOs get paid and are on duty 24/7. Huge lack of judgment there.

    drump is a real dog. His pandering is being shown for being just that. He just couldn’t keep his racist mouth shut. After he stepped out of bounds and was corrected by the lady pastor, it hurt his little feelings and when he got back on fox he just had to insult the Black lady pastor even though it was he who broke the agreement he had to speak at her church. He is really a low down dog. Anyone who thought he was actually concerned about Black citizens should now understand that he is just PANDERING for votes and couldn’t resist insulting the Black pastor.

    For 15+ months he refused to meet with the NAACP, or any other AA professional group, or church, than all of a sudden when he finally realized what was going on he want’s to act like he’s interested in AA people in general, and voters in particular.
