Don’t know much about his guy – but he presents a powerful condemnation of the Minister Lawn Jockey Coalition who joined Trump last week.
Pastor Jamal Bryant on why black ministers fronting for Trump are prostitutes. This isn’t the first time some black preachers have rallied around a Republican, George Bush was successful at drawing some in with his “Faith Based” bribery, as unscrupulous ministers by the dozen slithered to “get the money”….Showing that some ministers, just like prostitutes…Can be bought.
He claims that none of the “100” who met with Trump showed their faces in Ferguson, Baltimore, or at any of the other sites where people have met to protest injustice. I don’t know if that claim is true – but if so, it in itself is a powerful damnation.
The Rev. Jamal Bryant has had harsh words for his fellow pastors who attended Monday’s meeting with Donald Trump.
A prominent Baltimore pastor on Tuesday blasted his fellow clergymen who met with Donald Trump as “prostitutes” simply seeking “their 15 minutes of fame.”
“They are prostituting themselves and, in essence, the black church,” the Rev. Jamal Bryant, pastor of the Empowerment Temple Church in Baltimore, told the Daily News.
Bryant refused to attend Monday’s meeting between black pastors and the Republican presidential candidate at Trump Tower and accused those who did go of “selling out” for a moment in the national spotlight.
“It’s Andy Warhol’s daydream — it’s 15 minutes of fame,” Bryant contended. “It gave them a chance to be on television, and in the newspaper, where otherwise, nobody would have ever known their names.”
“I really felt that their contingency was really selling out their vote for nothing,” said Bryant, who briefly ran for Congress as a Democrat earlier this year before calling off the bid.
“We’ve heard nothing from (Trump) about bridging the gap of economic inequality, mass incarceration, public schools, trade with Africa and other issues important to the black community,” he said.
Trump sat down with a group of supportive African-American pastors for more than two hours Monday — and then emerged to say he wouldn’t change the tone of his campaign, which many have called divisive and racist.
