Trump’s “Black Outreach” Pastor Lied About Military Service and Education
Well, you have to admit Donald Trump gets all the best people, tremendous people, really fabulous people to work for him.
For example, Pastor Mark Burns. In his “invocation” at the Republican Convention, Burns called Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party “the enemy.”
Today on CNN, Burns was interviewed by CNN’s Victor Blackwell — who revealed that much of the biographical information on Burns’ website was an outright lie.
Burns tried to say the website had been hacked, then complained that CNN was trying to destroy his character because he speaks out against “political correctness,” then claimed it was “old information,” then ended up walking out of the interview. Then a little later, he admitted he “overstated” parts of his bio. Tremendous!
South Carolina preacher Mark Burns, who regularly introduces Trump at his campaign events, had listed on his church’s website that he had a Bachelor of Science degree and served six years in the Army Reserve.
Burns, however, was never in the Army Reserve. He was in the South Carolina National Guard, from which he was discharged in 2008, CNN found. As far as a Bachelor’s degree, North Greenville University told CNN he only attended the school for one semester. Burns admitted that he did not finish his degree when CNN asked him about it.
