Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Donald Trump is lashing out against an African-American pastor who interrupted him Wednesday to chide him for campaigning in her Flint, Mich., church. "Something was up," Trump told Fox and Friends on Thursday morning, calling the Rev. Faith Green Timmons a "nervous mess." NPR pool reporter Scott Detrow was at the speech and said Trump lied about the pastor being nervous in her introduction. Trump said people were saying "let him speak" after she interrupted him, but that was also a lie. Detrow writes, "That isn't true. In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord."

The only thing surprising about Trump's visit to hallowed ground is that he failed to explode into flames.

If I was that Pastor, I wouldn't have been so rude and cut him off...

I would have given him a large glass of tap water and urged him to continue speaking... ;-)

like that woman would allow any criticism of crooked, photoshopped hillary. she's just being a devoted servant to a woman who never delivers on her empty repeated promises to her subjects. 30 years and she's still gonna make life better for them.

It's Trump's MO to be meek in front of people and insult them later when they're not around.

For months he told crowds he'd made Mexico pay for the wall. But when he orchestrated the meeting with the Mexico president, he didn't say it to his face. Then he flew to Arizona and made bold boasts to a crowd about making Mexico pay for it.

Now he's done the same to a black pastor in Flint who did nothing but make him behave respectfully in a church and honor its request for no political attacks.

A definite pattern.

And a sign of things to come if he (urp, cough, choke, gag) somehow got elected.

Trump acts like a mean teenage girl.

I'm sure his three black supporters will ignore this incident and continue their fawning praise for The Don, in hopes of getting token jobs in his administration. When HRC wins, The Devil will appear to collect their souls...

That's why he wears that corset. Man has no spine.

Why does he lie about events that are videotaped, and why the hell doesn't the media call him on it? The so-called liberal media harp constantly on Hillary's secrecy her untrustworthiness, but somehow never get around to talking about Trump's constant, continuous lies. Next to his narcissism, Trump's most consistent personality trait is his lying. Bernie said it best months ago: He is a pathological liar. And yet the meme that the media focuses on during this election is Hillary's untrustworthiness. Hillary should start running ads that show Trump's lies juxtaposed with what really happened.

Why?

Trump has so many mental disorders that it's hard to know which one is driving him at any moment.

Deflecting his own obsessive/compulsive need to lie onto another person seems to be his favorite. At least, it's the one he's been using the most throughout this campaign.

We've all known people like this in our lifetimes and usually treat their compulsive lying with an eye roll and a look of contemptuous disbelief.

I dread to think about the damage Trump could inflect on the United States if he gets the chance.

This story is good evidence that NPR and its government financed affiliates are shills for the Democrat party. Their radio programs are also filled with leftist & pro-progressive programming topics and personalities. These stations should all be privately funded...not by the American taxpayers. I hope Trump is elected and this becomes one of his trimming down the size of government initiatives.
