Two African-American pastors––one of whom attended Donald Trump‘s meeting earlier today––clashed on CNN tonight over whether anything was actually accomplished from that meeting. And things got pretty personal.
Pastor James Davis, who attended the meeting and is supporting Trump, said he didn’t feel pandered to. Reverend Jamal Bryant responded by telling Erin Burnett that Davis is a “pawn.”
After going through all the reasons he can’t support Trump, Davis hit back and brought up how Bryant called him and all the pastors in the room “prostitutes.”
Bryant said, “I want to apologize, because prostitutes get money. And the 100 that went in there walked away with nothing, they did it for free.”
He even added, “So there’s another word for that, and I would not use that language on a family channel.” Bryant believes that the black pastors who attended are being exploited by Trump.
Davis insisted they had their voice heard plenty, dismissing Bryant’s concerns as just one of the liberal “minions” telling African-Americans who are open to non-liberal points of view to “get back on the plantation.”
He even said Bryant should “probably have his ministerial credentials revoked.”
