The Donald is convinced that the group of 100 black pastors who cancelled their meeting with him were prompted to do so because he believes “all lives matter.”
Yes, he actually said that.
Trump, being too stupid to understand that “Black Lives Matter” isn’t about all lives, it’s about black lives, further embarrassed himself by saying:
Probably some of the Black Lives Matter folks called them up and said, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be meeting with Trump because he believes all lives matter.’
Yes, Trump, because you’re just that important. The reason black people wouldn’t meet with you is because you’re an idiot. You’re a racist piece of trash whose money went nowhere towards buying some class or human decency. Black Lives Matter doesn’t care about you, your inevitable fall from the polls or whatever meathead replaces you as the next Republican parlour trick.
Black Lives Matter cares about political and societal awareness of an issue that is far more pressing than whether or not church leaders will meet with Donald Trump. Their movement is literally about life and death. He’s attacked them for months, telling Bill O’Reilly “They’re just looking for trouble.” Now he’s decided they belong on the list of people he will blame when his dreams of being President crumble.
They can hang out with Rosie O’Donell and Megyn Kelly, wondering why they care about what Donald Trump thinks.
The truth is, they don’t. They want nothing to do with Donald Trump, and that infuriates the world’s largest ego. When the group of pastors decided it wasn’t in their best interest to be in the same room with a racist for any reason, Trump decided it was all BLM’s fault, because to someone as ignorant as Donald Trump, black people are all the same.
All lives do matter, Mr. Trump. That’s not the point. Trying to undermine a movement that focuses on the struggles black people face where law enforcement is concerned because it’s not fair to your white-privileged self proves just what an asshole you are. Black Lives Matter is capitalized for a reason.
Do try and pay attention.
