Wholly scripted, Trump says he reads the Holy Scripture

 

 

“Instead of speaking to the congregation at Great Faith Ministries International, Mr. Trump had planned to be interviewed by its pastor in a session that would be closed to the public and the news media, with questions submitted in advance. And instead of letting Mr. Trump be his freewheeling self, his campaign prepared lengthy answers for the submitted questions, consulting black Republicans to make sure he says the right things.”  [nytimes.com]

 

 

Trump’s a  Christian and his faith affords

Multifarious inner rewards.

But also inside

Are great anger and pride

Which are traits  that are not like the Lord’s.

  • Chef is already bored. I won't go out and buy some microwaveable ConAgra slop.

    Trump does not make an appearance at 50th and Drexel, or re the Dwayne Wade cousin case, at, say, Kennedy King College.

  • Radio was all over the place, both had a script, preacher said he rejected the script, Trump will meet the congregation afterwards, or he won't.

  • So the 'party of teleprompter' is now calling for free verse? They had no problem watching Obama read 'ain't no mountain high enough' off lyricfreaks.com for eight years.

    Apparently the MSM news cycle reports of Hillary's brain damage and corks on her forks are gaining steam....#WhereisHillary.

    You don't read off a script or teleprompter during an interview. As far as Trump's outreach to the Afro-American community, let him explain why he led the birther movement.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    First, the birther movement was not about the Afro-American community, it was about B.O. Just like the question of Cruz's eligibility were about him, and not the Candanian or Cuban communities.

    Second, it was started by a Democrat lllinois lawyer named Andy Martin in 2004 and again by team Hillary in 2008. Donald didn't bring up till 2011. -Politico 2011

  • In reply to 4zen:

    How come you didn't add that the Politico reporter who wrote that story in 2011 and subsequently was hired by the Wall Street Journal made it clear that there was no link between birtherism and the Hillary campaign. Shame on you, 4zen.

    And don't be so disingenuous about real reason for Trump's espousal of birtherism.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    I didn't say it was her campaign and purposely did not say it was her personally.

    It is reported to have been done by a Texas volunteer of Hillary's by the name of Linda Starr, who was connected to a lawyer by the name of Philip Berg that sued to block B.O.'s nomination.
    -Politifact.com

    Isn't a volunteer at least part of the team?

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Then David Duke speaks for Donald Trump?

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Of course he does. So does Rocky Suhayda. So does everyone he retweets. I remember someone, who now will remain nameless, having a conspiracy theory about Rev. Wright, but never disclaimed these two, and nor has their candidate. And, of course, the nameless person has embraced Bannon as supposedly an impartial journalist. Still the S.O.S.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    And wait, what's the real reason for Trump espousal of birtherism?

  • In reply to 4zen:

    We are all holding our breaths. You are about to answer the question AW and you both asked: Why did Trump lead the birther movement?

    Oh, and how did that work out for him?

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Ok, wait for it...wait for it...drum roll...and...'to get to the other side!!'

    Wow, gee, no conspiracy! Nothing against any...co-mmun-ity! Well that was fun, thanx J-no.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I guess this makes sense to you, and you long ago gave up trying to make sense to anyone else.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I've addressed Trump's history of bigotry before in this forum. But your selective memory may have misfiled the fact that the federal government sued him and his father for racial profiling in their buildings.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    As you would say, 'allegedly.'

  • In reply to 4zen:

    No, actually. Check the record.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I did, it was settled with no admittance of guilt or wrong doing. Again, as you would say, why did you not add that? Shame on you etc. etc.

    And if your next move is say that settling is an admittance of guilt, well then I'll point out that sometimes good business forces one to take the high road.

  • Yes, they were settled. The Trumps paid the fines. But it's silly to say they took "the high road". "Good business" is never a defense for illegal and immoral conduct.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Do you feel that way about the Clintons too?

    You mean alleged illegal and immoral conduct, and that is not what I said.

  • Uh, oh, this doesn't fit the narrative.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    He was a Democrat once too. He is and always has been the embodiment of expediency.

    And I don't think Jesse is endorsing him now.
