Donald Trump attacked an African-American pastor who interrupted him Wednesday after he used her pulpit to campaign at her Flint, Michigan church. Donald went on to lie about what happened.
“Something was up,” Trump said on Fox and Friends, adding that she was a “nervous mess.”
“I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me,” he said. “When she got up to introduce me she was so nervous, she was shaking. I said, wow, this is kind of strange. Then she came up. So she had that in mind, there’s no question.”
Donald continued to bash the pastor as if he couldn’t stop himself. Then Mr. Liar Pants told a big fat lie.
“And I’ll tell you the audience was fantastic,” Trump said. “But she was so nervous. She was like a nervous mess, and so I figured something — I figured something was up, really.”
“The audience was saying, ‘Let him speak, let him speak,'” Donald claimed. But that’s not what happened at all. In fact, if you listen to the video, the opposite is true. And according to a reporter who was present, Donald wasn’t well received.
An NPR reporter present for the event disputed Trump’s characterization on multiple points.
“Pastor Faith Green Timmons introduced Trump to the predominantly African-American crowd of about 50 people, and she didn’t appear nervous at all,” Scott Detrow wrote in a post Thursday.
“That isn’t true,” Detrow wrote. “In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord.”
Donald then went on to speak at his rally in Ohio and told a joke about the Flint water crisis.
A Fox News poll in August found that just one percent of African Americans support Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, got 85 percent of the African American vote, while Gary Johnson got seven percent. Again, this is a Fox News poll we’re talking about. But Donald claims he has strong support from the black community. That, too, is just another lie offered to his naive supporters.
