Trump Tries To Bash Hillary At A Black Church In Flint….Pastor Not Having It

I think it’s safe to say that Trump’s big trip to Flint was an unmitigated disaster. 

On Wednesday, Trump visited Flint, Michigan. This sad Flint publicity stunt is just Trump’s latest attempt to prove to his white base that he’s not a racist. But despite his big plan, things went horribly wrong.

Trump went to Bethel United Methodist Church and tried to spew the lies and hatred that are his usual mantra, but the church’s pastor was not having it. When Trump launched into his attack on Hillary Clinton, Rev. Faith Green Timmons stopped him in his tracks. She literally interrupted him mid-sentence and told him that he was not invited to give a political speech.

Maybe if Trump ever actually went to church he might know that you can’t give political speeches there. But this is Donald Trump we’re talking about here so….

Trump was clearly caught off-guard with the Pastor’s interruption and stumbled for his response, “Oh…oh…okay, that’s good.”

Rev. Timmons also made a big point of telling everyone that Trump’s appearance at the African American church was definitely NOT an endorsement.

And Trump’s tour of the Flint Water Treatment Plant didn’t go so hot either.

If Trump was looking for some nice optics out of this trip then he is surely disappointed. Even the residents of Flint didn’t want him there.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Ron Bieber, who is the President of the Michigan AFL-CIO, had some very harsh words for Trump. “Less than 60 days before the election and now Donald Trump rolls into town for a photo-op. Give me a break. Where the hell have you been?”

Bieber continued,

“She (Hillary Clinton) drew national attention to the issues. She put pressure on the Governor to take action. Hillary Clinton has had Flint’s back every step of the way. Donald Trump doesn’t give a rip about Flint….My message today is pretty clear, ‘Donald Trump go home. You’re not welcome in Flint.'”

I think it’s safe to say that Trump’s big trip to Flint was an unmitigated disaster. Good job Trump…good job.
