Prominent Donald Trump surrogate and South Carolina evangelical televangelist Pastor Mark Burns had his microphone cut off MSNBC’s “AM Joy” after continuing to talk over host Joy Reid while refusing to answer her questions.
Pastor Burns has been attempting to use the Bible to rationalize Trump’s “sh*thole” comments, devolving a panel on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett” on Friday into a shouting match.
Throughout Reid’s interview, Pastor Burns repeatedly refused to answer her questions.
“One more question, I will give you one more chance to answer my question, then we’ll be done here,” Reid warned.
“You’re wasting my time when you talk over me and don’t answer my question,” Reid noted.
“You’re wasting my time,” Pastor Burns replied.
“Then good-bye,” Reid replied, ending the segment. “Let’s bring in our panel.”
This was not Reid’s only contentious interview with Pastor Burns, in August she stumped him about what positive policy actions Trump has taken for the black community.
