(RNS) Donald Trump called the meeting “amazing,” but the presidential candidate reportedly "got an earful" during the session with black pastors.

    “Bryant insinuated that participating pastors were “prostitutes for Trump.””

    Then those pastors have to worry. Trump tends to marry people who sleep with him for money. 🙂

  • Now THAT was funny,Larry…but in all seriousness,I find myself baffled that ANY honestly God-fearing person would seriously seek to have Donald Trump be the president of ANYTHING. I myself am convinced that there is something seriously wrong with him,and hearing him speak,he is most certainly NOT presidential material.He’s certainly failed the”smell test”in his claim of being Christian; I can’t think of anyone who embodys the calm,peaceful,and loving demeanor that should charaterize an authentic Christian less than Trump.Frankly,I don’t trust him,and as I’ve said before,if it took my one lowly vote for him to be elected,he would never get into the White House—Believe that!!

    Everyone that opposes Trump especially the media just doesn’t understand what’s going on with the fascination with Trump. Trump’s support is a cry to reject everything that today’s progressive society is trying to ram down the throats of most Americans. These are people that are not going to be persuaded to “get with it” , “accept what we’re dishing out”, “just trust us”. These people are sick and tired of political correctness; tired of being called racists; tired of being made to feel guilty of America’s sins from 200 years ago. They applaud when Trump calls something stupid,, because in fact, most of the ideology coming from the left these days IS stupid and I might add most of what is coming out of the mouths of career GOP politicians. People just don’t get it…. Trump supporters are really pissed off with what’s happening in America right now. That sentiment is not going away; it will grow. Trump’s speech is tame compared with that of the “progressive” left.

    “Trump’s support is a cry to reject everything that today’s progressive society is trying to ram down the throats of most Americans.”

    Like civil liberties, rule of law, regulations protecting the interests of the middle and working class and democratic government.

    “These people are sick and tired of political correctness; tired of being called racists; tired of being made to feel guilty of America’s sins from 200 years ago. ”

    They are not tired of being racists nor make any effort to refute such labels or claim they are somehow false, they just don’t want to hear them.

    So who again wants Nazi and Soviet levels of deportations and putting people into camps?

  • Let’s just pray! God has the final say.
