Vice President Mike Pence visited a historical black church over the weekend and probably got more than he bargained for when Pastor Dr. Maurice Watson of the Metropolitan Baptist Church directly denounced Donald Trump’s hateful words toward Haiti and African nations. From WUSA9:
In his speech, the pastor mentioned that some congregation members were from Haiti and African countries. He called the president’s comments “hurtful” and “dehumanizing.” He went on to call for the president to be held accountable for his words.
The Vice President reportedly became visibly red-faced at times throughout the speech.
Following his comments, members of the congregation rose out of their seats in support.
Pastor Watson cited Trump’s comments welcoming people from Norway and went on to say, “I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject such characterizations of the nations of Africa and our brothers and sisters in Haiti.”
Listen to the thoughtful words that apparently make Mike Pence red in the face.
