‘I am not an Uncle Tom’: Detroit pastor says he ‘changed the questions’ for Trump interview

Published

on

The Detroit pastor revealed to be hosting a scripted interview with Donald Trump on Saturday insisted that the real estate mogul’s presidential campaign is not in control of their meeting.

“I changed the questions up,” Bishop Wayne T. Jackson told WXYZ-TV. “I have confidential questions sitting right here by me now that nobody has seen but my secretary, who typed them up, and it’s in an envelope saying, ‘Apostle Wayne Jackson, confidential.’ Nobody knows. I have not discussed it with Mr. Trump’s camp or anybody else.”

Jackson’s “confidential” questions would run counter to the script discovered by the New York Times, which specified not only the order of the questions Jackson was to ask Trump at Great Faith Ministries International, but also laid out responses for the Republican presidential nominee, who was instructed to tell the African-American congregation that “my support [with black voters] is now up to 8 percent and climbing.”

Media outlets have been barred from the meeting, which will not be aired until next week on Jackson’s Christian television channel, The Impact Network. The bishop, a Democrat, said that Trump’s campaign will not have input into how the broadcast is edited.

The Hill reported that Jackson was hit with criticism on his Facebook page, and was accused of hosting Trump for “a campaign advertisement” and not an actual interview.

But Jackson insisted to WXYZ that Trump would not receive preferential treatment.

“I am not a Uncle Tom. I am not an Uncle Ruckus,” he said. “And I say that to say this: I’ve always helped in our community. I’ve always given in our community. I won’t stop giving in our community and I want people to get that through their heads that this is not a rally, but he’s coming to church. Who would stop anybody from coming to church?”

Trump tries to change the subject by blaming Obama — then accidentally admits he’s putting kids in ‘cages’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
