So now...Hillary just announced she will only hold a Press Conference...AFTER she's elected.

I wonder how the MSM feels about that.




What does this have to do with Trump's failed attempt at pandering to African Americans?

Or nominally, the great revelation that the cut in the broadcast feed was meant to prevent?


This thread deals with press censoring a Presidential candidate. A Presidential candidate censoring the press is a related subject.
Also...Trump's visit and speech seemed very positive and effective. Being 'anointed' and 'Blessed' by a popular African-American Bishop...in the Democrat-generated, economic hell-hole of Detroit seems quite positive for him.



You "seem" to be using a lot of generic weasel-words, you want to claim that a blessing from one man is significant ... how? Particularly when most of his congregation REFUSED to participate?


'Blessings' are 'Endorsements'...Are they not?
Candidates spend a great deal of effort to attain them...and once attained, they can be a positive thing for that candidate.

The man shown here, endorsing Trump through the bestowing of a Blessing...is a very good endorsement for Mr. Trump.
How is that arguable?
Do you feel this Bishop is a BAD endorsement for candidate Trump? If so, Why?


Yes, and the fact that Bishop Jackson invited Mr. Trump was proof of his endorsement.


So, by your logic, when a candidate is invited to address a specific group and address it's questions...THAT constitutes "proof" of endorsement?

Recently, Mr. Trump was invited south of the border by the President of Mexico to discuss specific questions and address his nation.
Is that "proof" Enrique Pena Nieto also endorses Trump?

Horsepucks. Trump's trip to the church was the worst kind of racial pandering.


No, the worse kind of pandering is all of a sudden acquiring a black dialect while pandering to a black audience.

I really don't see what the big deal is

You don't have to because millions of other people will see the gesture as a big deal. This at least had more meaning behind it than Hillary claiming that she carries hot sauce around in her purse 24/7.


Yes, both about on the same level. The left doesn't think it's a big deal to be part of Black Culture, because Black Cultural in the most part is Liberal. I've never heard of this Bishop, like most everyone, but he is so important today for some reason. Who gives a crap except Republicans who are scared of black people.

Examples of liberal 'Black Culture' please? Beyond voting Democrat, anyways. I seem to recall the 'Black Culture' in California was overwhelmingly pro-Prop8 in 2008 when they voted for Obama.

So you do know a lot about 'Black Culture' but don't know about this bishop?


Who gives a crap except Republicans who are scared of black people.


Scared? Examples please.

Good job ... you got a straw man argument AND a false equivalency in there ... and you're STILL not talking about the relevance of what you think "The Media" was trying to cover up.

There is a difference between a pastor of a church and the President of a sovereign nation, you might be surprised to discover.

Aside from that, as you have no answer to a simple question, we're done. Crow on.

Hillary is not the topic here.

Start another thread, perhaps?

From a sociological perspective, the giving of the shawl is highly significant. It is a symbol that implies a relationship between parties, and gift giving has been part of human culture for as long as we have been around.

Many cultures have rituals where this is the main purpose. Where I live, the First Nation's have potlatches, where giving of gifts IS the purpose to cement bonds within the tribe and celebrate and share their collective wealth.

The symbolism of this cannot be understated.

On the flipside, the symbolism of big banks gifting to Camp Hillary cannot be understated as well. Very telling...

I am sorry, you seem highly confused. You brought up racial pandering and said what Trump did was the worst kind. You brought up the subject. Someone shows you that there actually IS a worse kind. You are lacking hard in this thread. Par for the course I suppose.

Nope, not confused at all. I didn't "bring up" racial pandering, I stated that what Trump did in this obvious "photo op" is the worst kind. How many traditionally Black Churches has Mr. Trump visited previously? None?

Comparing that with a speech made years ago by Hillary Clinton in a different context entirely, in a thread dedicated to some imagined covert action on the part of "the Media" (dundundun) to hide some vital information about Mr. Trump. On the other hand, if anything, aside from the usual "but look what Hillary did" response to EVERY critique of Trump, it shows that Clinton has been involved with the African American community for DECADES.

Perhaps you are the one that is confused ... the Church was basically empty ...

So in your lengthy post you said nothing. You admit you brought up that Trumps "pandering" was the worst kind. Then, you attempted to spin for Hilary who FAKES ACCENTS to pander to African Americans.

You do realize Trump has been involved in the African American community right? For decades even. A video has been posted in this thread of Reverend Jackson honoring him for his support of the community.

The difference is Trump isn't a lifelong politician, so he hasn't gone around flaunting his work with minorities his whole life.

I'm also not confused. It was at capacity. They had limited tickets available and would not allow anyone in who did not have a ticket. There were no more tickets available. The church probably wanted it that way. (Watching it live made it seem like they wanted to reduce chances of demonstrators getting in)

And you're doing nothing here except pathetically denying what I stated clearly.

I didn't spin anything. I stated the facts: the attempt is being made to compare a speech made years ago by Clinton to this photo-op yesterday by Trump. That's utter false equivalency.

Trump has been involved with the Black community for decades? Prove it.

"Trump is not a lifelong politician." Thanks for tossing in that irrelevant chestnut once again. He's a reality TV personality, before that, he was pandering bad steaks and fake Universities. He's been probably been living off little more than the marketing fees from TRUMP branding for decades. As Mark Cuban pointed out, the only way he'd be worth 10 Billion is if Cuban gave him 9.5.

The facts deny your statements about the church. I provided three easily accessible points of evidence, that clearly show the church was basically empty. I provided a photograph.

Why don't you post some evidence countering that, if it exists?

I really don't see what the big deal is, it is hardly a riveting exchange, he gets a shawl, bfd. Maybe time for something more Newsworthy because it was running dry.


As a cameraman you are required to record all interactions between Important people. About the only time it's permitted to stop filming is when someone is going to be killed or about to commit suicide. It's up to the editors to decide whether something should be published or not.

Any video recorded now will be used for decades and becomes part of the historical record. Seems strange why Reuters wouldn't want this to happen.

Also, relevant lyrics from James Cleveland's Hymn ... "I Don't Feel No Ways Tired"



I don't feel no ways tired,
I've come too far from where I started from.
Nobody told me that the road would be easy,
I don't believe He brought me this far to leave me.

Clinton read the lyrics of the hymn.

As usual, much ado about nothing.

Thats a pic from before. If you look at the ones with Trump on stage it is bordering on capacity. The MSM did the same thing with the Trump rally I was at in Kissimmee. They posted a pic showing attendance and it was an hour before he spoke. It was at capacity when he did.

That is also not the Drudge site you linked to. It is a site called Drudge Retort....


twitter.com...

pbs.twimg.com...

Looks like some happy people because SOMEONE is listening to them.

BTW...Hillarys camp is cancelling rallies and meetings based on poor interest.

When was this picture taken? Looks to me like many people are in the aisle, maybe going up for communion or maybe even gathering around Trump if you notice on the screen it looks like him taking pictures? The crowd are looking to the left as a group gather over there.

Have you anything that proves this is not something happening during (like communion), before or after the event? Trump is not at the front of the church in that shot, so it's not during his speech.

Looks like you may have fallen for some propaganda.

I there a video pan of the crowd whilst Trump was speaking? I saw one and it looks like the crowd are right to the back at that point, but hard to tell.
Also, your third link is misleading - it's Drudge Retort, not Drudge Report. That site is run by a bunch of fools who couldn't come up with their own idea so they just took a contrary position to Drudge and copied his site.

Are most black people in America poor with nothing to lose? Are their streets a war zone, their schools all broken down, with half their population of able bodied citizens out of work and idle?

If there are any black people on this site (not that your skin color should matter a hill of beans to anyone) for whom this is your reality and experience as a black-skinned American, please chime in.

Maybe Donald Trump's view and outlook of the black American experience isn't even based in reality..

Yes, she did... whilst putting on an accent to pander.

This is not her normal accent.
