Come on: I often have agreed with you in the past, but not this time. Why in the world would 100 black pastors endorse or even support him and I think the answer is simple: they wouldn't and won't. And do we really have any idea how many of these 100 pastors actually really did meet behind closed doors? Was it 100, 150 or more like 50 or 10?

No, but why did she meet with them and attempt to convince them to support her?

You have no obligation to speak the truth, obviously.

Really?
REALLY?


When some slanders an ENTIRE RACE do you really expect the members of that race to SUPPORT that person?
Really?
REALLY?

Any who really believes that's likely to happen is incredibly naive.

Outside of your own lies, where exactly did I indicate what you claim?


Waiting for an apology which will never come from the likes of you.

Apparently I WAS able to predict with a fair degree of accuracy what that group would do?
Were you?

The claim was that those 100 were going to endorse Trump. How many of those have? What's the number - 3? So the claim was 3 percent accurate. That's pretty darned bad - but didn't take a genius to know that's the way it would unfold, all it took was COMMON SENSE - something some folks seem to be lacking.

Ken

So you are claiming that since a small number committed immediately, no more will when they followed their stated desire to listen and then make up their mind? You claim that as common sense, or just another lie to support your bigoted claim?

Hmm... Because she was hoping for their support perhaps?? Why would anyone running for office meet with a bunch of people??


Holding a meeting with a group of people n the hopes of getting their support is one thing, saying they are going to endorse you prior to the meeting is something entirely different, especially when they made no such endorsement claims. Can you comprehend the difference yet??

As for people on the right doing any better, how can they possibly do any worse?
I can start with that black crime tweet. He is wrong and the FBI proves this. Bill O'Reilly called him to task on Fox news about checking facts, and Trump admitted he does not do that. I gave you my sources. Now refute what others have said.

I'm thinking the Trumpster is not so good with numbers. Perhaps he needs to keep a calculator on hand I imagine.


Let's see, his crime statistics that he tweeted out were unfortunately wrong; THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of people celebrating 9-11 turned into 12 (or none, take your pick) and 100 Pastors has turned into three.


I was always taught to undersell and over deliver. Trumpster oversells and under delivers.

"[Victor Couzens, a minister from Ohio] says about 50 black ministers showed up to Trump Tower, not the 100 that had been promised or touted afterward."
