Trump supporter tweets racist cartoon of Hillary Clinton in blackface. Surprise twist: He's a black pastor.

Courtesy of Chron: 

An African-American supporter of Donald Trump tweeted a cartoon on Monday of Hillary Clinton in blackface, seemingly mocking her outreach to black voters. 

"Black Americans, THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES and letting me use you again .. See you again in 4 years," Pastor Mark Burns tweeted Monday. The tweet was later deleted. 

The photo attached has Clinton, with her face painted black, standing in front of a podium holding a sign reading, "#@!* the police" and "I ain't no ways tired of pandering to African-Americans." 

At first Burns tried to defend the tweet:

"I am standing behind that picture," Burns said. "We as African-Americans, we need to make Democrats fight for our vote. We need to make them fight for us. We need to make them do what they say they are gonna do, because we are just as valuable as every race in the great state of the United States of America and we're not treated that way."

And then Burns also tweeted this image:

Yes, that's a photoshopped image and has nothing to do with Bill and Hillary.

Later Burns, or perhaps somebody in the campaign, decided that he better apologize:  

CNN's Alisyn Camerota prefaced her question with Burns by remarking, "This is allegedly, it claimed to be of Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton in black face. This is not true. This has been disproven and debunked time and again. This has surfaced in previous presidential races. So why share it?" 

"Well, obviously you know I think in reference to that particular post — of course, I didn't have the correct information knowing that it wasn't Bill Clinton," Burns said in an interview with CNN's "New Day." "And I apologize for that as well, for posting incorrect information. Again, I think that's what the true message of grace is, that you know once you discover new information, you are quickly to change your opinion and get back on the right path. And that's what I'm doing right now to the whole world, is to say, listen, in my sincere heart of hearts, my job as a pastor is to draw people together, not push them away." 

Burns added that once he realized "how it was pulling people apart," he regretted retweeting the image, which was still on his Twitter page at the time of the interview. 

"But we need to begin to see each other just as Americans and really, really stop focusing on the things that divide us," Burns continued. "And that message was a divisive message. And once I discovered how divisive it was — this is not the campaign talking, this is not somebody yelling in my ear saying you need to take that down or this is Mark Burns all by himself, who truly loves people. And I love this country and I believe in Donald Trump for president." 

You know I would actually argue that it is impossible to "love this country" and then "believe in Donald Trump for president." 

I swear the only non-white male supporters that Donald Trump can find to defend his campaign are self loathing women, and racist against minorities minorities.

    I haven't yet decided whether Mark Burns himself should be pitied or maligned, but either way, what he has done is despicable.

  2. If Burns had lived in the 1850s he would have been a slave catcher. He is a nasty piece of work waiting for Trump to drop money on his "good works". Stupid, fake ass christian asshole.

    The Black Pastor is a Black Grifter. You can bet that Trump has donated to his church's Pastor's slush fund. His church members will pay for all of the Pastor's campaign trips.

      Yup. He's a POS. Always has been. Slimy character. He fools the limited. He grifts like the Palins.

    Awe whats wrong, your pet black people not acting like the way democrats have taught them to act?

    1. Anonymous9:15 AM

      Trump will have blacks back in shackles within a year of his election. Kiss affirmative action and the fight for wage equality goodbye, it's back to 1850...

      It comes naturally to him because he has bought into the bullshit paradigm of the right wing Christian identity politics of destruction.

      Too much listening to idiots like Limbaugh and Hannity, and deciding that some imaginary god in the sky is controlling events here on earth.

      Take your despicable self off to WND or Breitbart and join up with your fellow racist pukes.

      Well Gryphen did the old tar and feather label routine on any black person that might vote republican, regardless of their political reasons. It is the typical white democrat response to when black people make their own choice to not vote democrat. White liberals don't think black voters should choose for themselves, they should just vote democrat like you tell them, isn't that right Gryph.

      12:08 PM We should all listen to Donald Trump, because he says that he is for African Americans. But he refuses to go to a Black community to give a speech. Detroit will be his first, and watch the amount of security he will have.

      @8:58 AM Your mother didn't think so, is that why you have that animosity towards Blacks?

      @8:58 AM You would be the first to bash the Pastor if you knew that his wife is White, bigot. Invite them over for dinner? BWAHAHAHAHA bigots don't have a clue. Go back to school bigot.

    11. Anonymous3:22 PM

      That is right 2:05/2:08, you liberals have nowhere to turn when you get called out on your inherent racism and assumed ownership of black people, so you act out and start calling people insulting names. You go back to school.

    12. Anonymous5:11 PM

      You all do realize that there were no blacks on the Mayflower, right?

    13. Anonymous5:14 PM

      Some of you get so uptight about "liberals not understanding black people" but you have to realize that some of us grew up with NO black people in our towns and to this day there are very few blacks where I live so this entire issue just sort of goes over some of our heads as we really haven't been exposed to them but that doesn't mean that we don't wish them the best, even if we don't know them or live around them.

  7. "Again, I think that's what the true message of grace is, that you know once you discover new information, you are quickly to change your opinion and get back on the right path. "
    Blah, blah, blah.

    There is no excuse for him not having "discovered new information" *before* tweeting it out to the world.

    Funny how these fake christians so eagerly love to "bear false witness" at every opportunity.

    I saw Mark Burns on TV. He was wearing blue contact lenses. I am not sure exactly what that means but it stood out to me as very strange.

      Could be because his white wife has very pale blue eyes.

      Ahh yes, a true liberal bringing up the threat of slavery or deportation as a scare tactic to keep the blacks on the democratic plantation. Nice going 5:03, thanks for showing your true 'colors'. It is good that black people can't think for themselves, or make their own political decisions- since they have you to do it for them!

    Burns is just a selfish TV-loving pig. It's embarrassing that when in his mid-teens he was made into a pastor--so simple--and he didn't even yet have his GED. From his GED he got into a state college and majored in, well of course, business. His parents, so holy, created a religion network for making money off, and the son followed suit. Ever since, it's been all about money money money using the media. The guy is a hater and treats women like dirt and has no tolerance for anyone who isn't evangelical. His hate-filled anti-American-way so-called prayer at the GOP convention angered many Republicans. I'm putting this guy on my list of people who could have a heart attack and die and, truth be told, the world would be a better place.

    1. Anonymous11:12 AM

      And, I hope that Trump meets his demise along with him! Damn, but our country would be a much, much better place in which to reside!

      Vote for Hillary Clinton folks! Bring sanity back to our horrible election process with The Donald casting his evil spill on all of us!

    2. Burns also has a somewhat checkered past, including sucking off the government tit.

      "Until Trump plucked Burns out of the tiny town of Easley, S.C., few Christians knew the black pastor’s name. But it is God, Burns says, who has economically transformed his life—before he found Jesus, he relied on food stamps, lived in section 8 housing, went to jail, and faced a charge of simple assault as part of his self-described “baby mama drama” past. Then last year, Burns decided to transition his ministry to a for-profit televangelism business, so he and his followers could achieve economic success."

      Another Trumped-up version of a man of God adding to the collection of Huckabee, Falwell,Jr, and Franklin.
      Almost as screw-loose as the mad scientist Dr.
      Throw in Bachmann, Palin, and Nugent with Gingrich, Crispy and McConnell for drama and that makes one hell of a line-up to present to this planet.

    Gryphen, read this great article by Mother Jones on Trump Modeling Agency.

    Explains more of his greedy business practices and how he broke immigration laws that he's now ranting against.

    Trump used illegal underage girls for modeling, but they made no money (the modeling agency charged high rent and fees to make money off them so their paychecks were almost nothing)

    Good Article - What happens after trump loses the election - by Robert Reich
    "I think Trump will lose the election, but I doubt he’ll be “history.
    Defeated presidential candidates typically disappear from public view. Think Mitt Romney or Michael Dukakis.
    But Donald Trump won’t disappear. Trump needs attention the way normal people need food."

    We not only need to get Hilary in the White House - but we need to keep on fighting to get more democrats in the senate and congress and to fight against all the lies and hatred that is going to get ramped up because of Trump (and his followers) after elections

    The RW peawits respond to these posts like they are in denial. Projection is all they have. The Confederate flag they fly off their pickups is all about 'Southern Pride'. Dumb fuks.

  17. Mark Burns is the other side of the coin that is Donald Trump. Solely concerned about getting, not earning, money. Narcissistic in the extreme, craving, even demanding the attention of others. Lacking all empathy and understanding of other people. Only their feelings are important. They are seriously anti-intellectual, trusting only their own cunning and scorning anyone obviously more intelligent than they are. Burns needs to return to SC and avoid the spotlight. He is an embarrassment, a walking talking breathing parody of humanity.

  18. Anonymous2:01 PM

    Burns added that once he realized "how it was pulling people apart," he regretted retweeting the image.
    I guess he can be forgiven. If he's stupid enough to endorse Trump as an African American (and preacher to boot), I can see he's stupid enough to retweet without first considering how racist it is.

  19. Anonymous3:05 PM

    Did he feel the burn and apologize after being caught because of his day job? Wonder if he'd forgive burning crosses on his lawn, or even if he knows jack shit about African American History? Sorry, I'm not African American, and I can't forgive ignorance on this level, from one who should know better.
