As an old white guy, someone please tell me something.

Lately I've been seeing several African American Pastors all over tv shilling for Trump.
And they just make things up about Pres Obama and Hillary spewing hate.

Do you see them as genuine or fake people just on his payroll?

1. On the payroll. The vast majority of us know they are being paid.

2. I do not know that--Not part of the 'we' I guess. But who pays them?...

Not being contrary--just asking.

I have noticed it also-and it seems the msm is able to find them and get them on national TV.

3. Right wing back channels. Could be as simple as a paper bag stuffed with cash, or deposits . . .

to secret bank accounts, donations to church building funds, etc. It's not that hard to get money to these so-called men of the cloth, along with the understanding of what's expected of them.

Back in the 90s in the New York metro area, it became known that Christie Todd Whitman, then a Jersey pol, had distributed "walking around money", as it was called, to many black preachers with the understanding that they would endorse her to their congregations.

This is just the latest iteration of an old political tactic.

The good thing is that 99.9% of AAs aren't voting for Trump no matter what a preacher says. We know better. Hell, even those bought-off preachers probably aren't voting for Trump.

4. Yes, I suspose that could happen easily. And most likely does. Not one thing

Donald has said is concrete--meaning he talks about bringing jobs to the inner city, yet always talks in broad terms.

6. It takes a long time for progressive news to filter down-if it ever does.
