“I know it’s hard for you. You think it’s hard to believe that Trump is racist,” Lemon said on “CNN Tonight.”
“But he’s repeatedly used racially charged language. He consistently attacks black and brown elected leaders. So, why is that hard to believe, Pastor?”
“I find President Trump attacks leaders of all colors. He attacks who he will. He’s his own man,” Owens scolded Don Lemon.
“I can’t dictate what he should or should not do. But he does not just attack black people. He attacks anybody. And you know it.”
Correct. Don Lemon knows exactly what he is doing with this nonsense. You may not like Trump’s style but he is nothing if consistent. You attack him, he will attack you.
Every time. No matter who it is.
“So as a man of faith, as a Christian, you’re saying he attacks anyone. It sounds like you’re condoning attacks? Is that Christianly or Godly?” Lemon asked trying to trap the pastor.
“I’m just stating a statement of fact,” Owens said. “I’m not condoning anything. I’m stating a statement of fact.
President Trump does not pick the people he attacks because of color. He attacks anybody he feels needs it … I’m not his judge.”
“Any concern for you that the president used this meeting with black leaders to insulate himself from that criticism?” Lemon asked.
“I don’t think so. I don’t think that at all because I have been to the White House four times in five months,” Owens answered.
“So it was nothing about insulating him from anything. He wanted to hear from us, what our concerns were, and what he could do to help us,” he added.
