Was it a trap? Flint pastor promised to ‘educate’ Donald Trump

Donald Trump victim of trap set by pastor
Was Donald Trump the victim of a set-up?

Rev. Faith Green Timmons made news when she interrupted GOP nominee Donald Trump during a speech he gave at the Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint, Michigan.  But Fox News’ Todd Starnes said that “something doesn’t pass the smell test.”

It seems the good pastor posted a note on Facebook promising to “educate” the nominee.  The post was deleted, but not before being captured by several people:

Today is our day! We have a chance to show DONALD TRUMP than this nation is filled with intelligent, wise black citizens of integrity many of whom live right in FLINT, MICHIGAN. What he will see is how we are braving a man-made catastrophe. HE WILL NOT USE US, WE will EDUCATE HIM!!!,” she wrote.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Timmons, Starnes said, told the candidate to stay focused on the water crisis and not Hillary Clinton.

“I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech,” she said.

Trump graciously complied, but something just didn’t add up.

Starnes added:

Well, I guess the Rev. Timmons showed Mr. Trump — ambushing him in a House of Worship. I will give her credit for hushing up a protester who kept interrupting his remarks.

By the way, the Rev. Timmons has since deleted that Facebook posting. Hmm.

Mr. Trump showed great restraint and class as he complied with her request. And he deserves credit for at least trying to start a dialogue.

I wonder if Rev. Timmons “educated” President Obama like she did Mr. Trump?

Say what?  It would certainly appear that she’s a staunch Obama supporter:


Was it a set-up?  It certainly looks like it was.

The moral of this story?  Beware liberals bearing gifts…
