Rev. Jamal Bryant on Black Pastors Meeting Trump: ‘At Least Prostitutes Get Money’

cnn-trump

Rev. Jamal Bryant had a lot to say last night during a CNN segment featuring one of the pastors who attended the meeting held by Donald Trump on Monday. Bryant clashed with Pastor James Davis, and told him that Davis should feel like a pawn.

But things got ugly when Bryant referred to the pastors who attended the meeting as prostitutes. But he definitely clarified his statement and twisted the knife even further.

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.”

According to Davis, Trump listened to the pastors and said Bryant was just one of the liberal “minions” telling African-Americans who are open to non-liberal points of view to “get back on the plantation.”

Davis even said Bryant should “probably have his ministerial credentials revoked.”

    I applaud these ministers, we are a free people but we just don’t know it and don’t act like a free people if we didn’t we wouldn’t keep asking for freedom we would just act like free people, we don’t owe any political party anything we are free to talk to and negotiate with any political party we see fit.

      I personally don’t take issue with political freedom. What irritates me about this whole situation is what exactly was negotiated and for whom? If they discussed real issues that plague black Americans, fine. But I haven’t seen anything that details that. If they went for personal reasons, between them and God. But I’m pretty sure they were selected to influence their congregations to support Trump as the Republican candidate for president.

        but we never have a problem when anyone meet with a democrat or call them on the carpet for meeting with Hillary Clinton only when some one or groups meet with a republican do we seems to get our antennas up and that’s my issue with black folk because I am a free man and I owe no one political party nothing.

          Perhaps, people have issues with some of the previous dog-whistling politics such as it being “only Black people or Black Women” on welfare. However, (even though I am not personally affected) I also took issue with Trump’s insinuation that Obama was born in Kenya and was not a citizen of the U.S. How people can preach to other Black people to be open-minded, but blatantly overlook the condescending and racist actions of key politicians to scapegoat Black People for the economy and gross mismanagement of government spending, both baffles and disgusts me at the same time. And no, I don’t cosign EVERY democrat on the team. I actually consider the individual record of each office holder I vote for.

            I see where you are coming from. “I also took issue with Trump’s insinuation that Obama was born in Kenya and was not a citizen of the U.S.” OK I see but you don’t take issue with Hillary Clinton insinuating that Obama was a Muslim or saying whites wouldn’t vote for a black for president doing the 2008 democratic primary, I find that strange. Peace.

              I didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton in the primaries in 2008 and don’t really plan on voting for her this time around either.

            I am neither Democrat or Republican I am a free thinking man which makes me a free man I owe no political party anything and if we are ever going to be free, strong and respected in this world we have to pry our black people away from the democratic party “emotionally” because they got a strong “spell” over and a strong grip on the minds of black people in America, it’s no other way I can explain it. Peace Mary.

    There are two things. Noticed how Davis tried to make the case that he didn’t feel like Trump has “pandered” to him because his (Trump’s) EGO is so big. If this isn’t the words or reasoning of a coon, then I don’t know what is. The second part is how they started with the faux outrage of Bryant calling the ministers prostitutes and also calling Davis a pawn. When Bryant responded “in kind” that at “least prostitutes get money”, that just made my day. Besides, I bet many of those same preachers love to talk about, down to, and the use the term “prostitutes” when they get behind their pulpits.

      That stood out to me as well. It’s funny because if these were truly messengers of Jesus, they would not be so reverant of someone with such a big ego. They would be wary of Trump. Jesus was a meek man and taught against having too much pride, so why as his ‘messenger’ are you so enthralled with someone who believes they are above or equal to God.

    Rev. Bryant better preach. I truly do appreciate it when people in positions of power speak out against their colleagues doing wrong, even when that means possibly being black balled and pushed away from certain opportunities. Rev. Bryant speaks to the traditional freedom fighting function of black preachers in America, not those ones who pimp out their congregations and communities for profit.

    I am about to go in.

    Trump is a fascist. He desires databases for some people, he tweeted lying statistics about black people, and he is a vulgar misogynist. Some of those pastors sucking up to Trump and the GOP has nothing to do with being a free people. Being a free people is realizing how much an extremist Trump is. Yes, I believe in a clean environment. I believe in health care for all. I believe in equality and social justice. I am not ashamed of what I stand for. Yeshua in the NT was despised of men, he was poor, he opposed materialism, he opposed the agenda of Caesar, and he respected the sojouner. The ministers who talked with Trump shown compromise in the face of hate. Bryant (I don’t agree with him on every issue) has told the truth in this instance calling out those pastors who exploit the gospel for political gain.

      “The ministers who talked with Trump shown compromise in the face of hate.”

      Exactly!! However, I would say it is more of a lack of conviction and fortitude. Notice how Davis tried to explain away the lack of the discussion of issues affecting Blacks by Trump by blaming Obama for the incidents that led to the Black Live Matters movement. Almost every Black knows that these transgressions have been history in the making. He is placating Trump and his minions so much, he can’t even get his story or his timeline straight. And if all of these racially motivated killings are issues to be resolved by the Obama administration, what is his/their role and purpose and WHY are they meeting with Trump? If my intuition serves me correct, I bet they signed agreements to forego any recording before having their “closed” door meeting. I fairly certain such recordings would be a sound embarrassment.

        I agree with you Sister.

        Police terrorism and other acts of racial injustice existed for centuries against black men, black women, and black children. Davis is desperate and grasping for straws. What people like Davis won’t expose are white racism, police terrorism, and the system of racism/white supremacy. The Black Lives Matter movement existed in response to oppression. It is a movement created by three black women. Davis defends Trump like a person who sold his soul for 40 pieces of silver. The don’t called a closed meeting for nothing. So, the did probably signed agreements with Trump.

    They have every right to go but if they did not talk about the issues that plague majority of their members and their members’ families then what was the point. If they did not call him to task but just listened to him blame things on the current administration but gave no plans on what his policies would be, again what was the point. Don’t come back saying it’s how the media portrays him…we know how the media likes to portray us. Tell us something we don’t know.

    I’m rather amazed and shocked at the awful comments against the African American ministers. Donald Trump is a businessman and so are the ministers.
    If they endorse Trump, it gives him a chance to help the ministers and their followers. A win win for both sides, a business deal.

      Clearly, you are a troll. However, I would like to know what you think of the “awful” comments Trump has made against others in the media. Also, thanks for revealing that many ministers are pretty much businessmen and not necessarily modern-day prophets running churches as places of worship. (Of course, some of us knew this already)

          “That title goes to the liberals that spend a great deal of time and money catering to minorities.”–Which is precisely what Trump is doing.

      Your concern for the Bishops seems trivial. I assume you are Caucasian and if so, the amazement you stated may be the result of you standing on the outside of issues relating to black people (like most whites do), that really don’t concern you.
      How do you think the outcome of this business deal benefits both sides?

    Jamal Bryant somehow always has a prostitute/ho-related analogy. Last time he said “These hoes ain’t loyal”. Now he’s saying … at least prostitutes get money.
    Freudian slip much?

    I noticed Jamal Bryant like to make analogies about “hoes” Last time Clutch did a post was last year and he was addressing the youth in some youth conference and he used language that I thought was inappropriate. He used something from a Chris Brown song. “Hoes Ain’t Loyal ” Yet here he is using this language again.
