So Il Douche, Donaldo Trumpolini had to cancel his presser with endorsement by 100 Black Preachers

Trump campaign forced to cancel press conference with black pastors after they shred him in the press

A press conference scheduled for Monday, where GOP front runner Donald Trump had expected to announce the support of black clergyman, has been cancelled after the pastors blasted the campaign for announcing they would be endorsing him, reports CNN.

A scheduled private meeting with black pastors was supposed to be followed by a press conference where, according to the campaign: “A coalition of 100 African American Evangelical pastors and religious leaders will endorse the GOP front runner after a private meeting at Trump Tower.”

This did not sit well with prospective attendees, many of whom claim that they had no intention of endorsing Trump, with one calling him “an insult and embarrassment. But he represents the country we have become.”

Bishop Paul S. Morton of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship tweeted on Friday that he had refused to meet with Trump, saying that the candidate lacks “respect for people.”

Only a narcissistic moron would announce such an "endorsement" before it even happened. It's quite clear that he has no idea how he sounds to other people.

AfrAm preachers I think it could be a few of them in support of T-rump, but at least 99.9% will not be voting for him.

...one what I don't know since the guy is just one ginormous anal orifice.

I notice that in his speech patterns he always follows each offensive statement with "...I don't care." I'm sure he doesn't because this appears to all be the biggest reality show he's ever bid on and that is all the world is for him, and he should be in control of it.

As for Italian stereotypes, it would have to be much more current and US, like calling him a Mafioso.

Referring to Trump as Il Duce is no more stereotypical of Italian-Americans than referring to him as Hitler would be stereotypical of German-Americans.

an Italian or German American might be offended by the need for ethnic
stereotype and conversion of WASP name into ethnic-sounding archetype

I suppose many or all races, ethnicities, religions have their stereotype in
humor or pop culture. I never particularly found "Schlomo" very amusing, to
give just one example. Nor dumb Pollock jokes. "What tribe you from?" is
a rather insensitive question, to give another example, when asked of
anyone. I surely equate Donaldo Trumpolini as belonging in this insensitive
lot.

Other than that I agree with you wholeheartedly. As a human being, Il Douche is a failure.

comments from these black pastors after meeting with Trump. Turns out 50% did not show, the rest were not there to endorse Trump they were there to discuss his racist statements with him.

Trump opens his mouth...and he's lying.
