Pastor Busted On Live TV Over Falsified Resume Now Says He Might Challenge Sen. Lindsey Graham [VIDEO]

The Christian Post reports:

One of President Donald Trump’s biggest evangelical supporters, Pastor Mark Burns who leads the Harvest Praise and Worship Center in Easley, South Carolina, says he mulling the prospect of challenging Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham for his seat in Washington when he’s up for election in 2020.

Burns who is a member of Trumps evangelical advisory board revealed in a statement on Sunday that he is being encouraged by supporters to challenge Graham for his seat in the U.S. Senate or seek some local government office.

“I am impressed by the many South Carolinians disappointed by the self-centered actions of Sen. Lindsey Graham and flattered by the many Americans who are urging me to challenge him. Still others are urging me to seek statewide office in 2018 when I am committed to re-electing our great Governor Henry McMaster. I will be praying over these challenges in the weeks and months ahead,” he said.

From a CNN report in September 2016:

A top Donald Trump surrogate admitted to falsifying his professional accomplishments after a contentious confrontation with CNN anchor Victor Blackwell. 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.

When CNN confronted Burns about the various professional and social exaggerations he had featured on his biography, Burns first said the page had “obviously” been either “manipulated or either hacked or added.”

After fleeing the CNN interview, Burns confessed to the lies but claimed he’s been targeted “because I am a black man supporting Donald Trump for President.” Burns was a featured speaker at the GOP convention.

    yup he has the correct shaded credentials to be a GOP contender

  • Tawreos

    I guess they figure if they load more obvious liars into congress then Trump’s lies won’t seem so outrageous by comparison.

    • JWC

      More the logic of “but mom he lied too”

    Racial persecution is the second-to-last refuge of a scoundrel.

    • Lazycrockett

      Can a black man get elected statewide in SC?

      • Todd20036

        Racists might vote for him to prove they aren’t racists, if the quisling is as bigoted against blacks the way Clarence Thomas, Diaz in Bronx, or Ben Carson are.

        • Mb

          Diaz is from the Bronx but regardless still piece of excrement.

          • Todd20036

            Thanks! And edited.

        • UrsusArctos 🐻

          I read that as “Dim Carson”. Thank you. ;D

      • Tawreos

        If he is the only one in the race with an R after there name then yes, but probably not by as big of a margin as would be the usual.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        SC? Sorry that state isnt going to have 2 black senators……ever

      • kaydenpat

        Isn’t that where Senator Tim Scott is from? He’s Black and extremely conservative.

        • JCF

          Was *appointed* first.

    • Uncle Mark

      My money’s on the house faggot. The house Negro can’t hide his skin color, and I can’t see Bannon’s deplorables breaking out their torches in support. The house faggot on the other hand has experience and is just a “confirmed bachelor,” not the screaming bend-over as oft rumored.

      • Todd20036

        Really? I see fairy wings on Hammosexual Bellisquit.

        • Uncle Mark

          I’m certain that most people, not just those of us with even weak gaydar, can see LindseyBelle qweef Skittles with every mincing step…but as long as she keeps her gayness & fainting couch in the closet, South Carolinians will delude themselves into believe she’s not gay (or even THAT gay).

  • Do Something Nice

    No, you are being targeted because you are a lying sack of shit.

    • Todd20036

      Stop disrespecting sacks of shit.

    • PeterC

      Is that worse than a standing sack of shit. Probably about the same result.

      • TimCA

        Regarding your post “This just in. From The Russian collusion found.”

        You don’t even have the correct link. You’ve linked to some telecommunications consulting firm. Are you referring to the story that appeared early this morning on the Hill news website? The one that now purports to show a smoking gun involving not only the Clintons but the wider Obama administration in some nefarious plot to sell uranium to the Russians? This rehashed and thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory now bundled up into a new propaganda piece designed to divert attention from the Mueller investigation? Is this the story you want us to read?

        • kareemachan

          Gee, I’m…. less than impressed.

  • PickyPecker

    Pastor Burns needs to make friends with Richard Spencer.

    • The_Wretched

      Pick up an AR-15 and try to “open carry” it Mr.Burns. You might notice your skin color matters then.

    • Lazycrockett

      Shouldn’t he be holding a lantern?

    • Goodboy

      Rest easy Pastor. The majority of Trumps supporters don’t refer to you as an “African American”.

    • bambinoitaliano

      He is like that gay no more moron and announce his new black no more identity.

        Is the artist who painted Jindal’s portrait available?

        That’s actually who I thought it was at first.

    • kaydenpat

      Thankfully, Folks like Burns represent a very tiny percentage of the Black community. TBH, I’ve yet to personally meet any Black person who supports Trump in any way or form. As a Black woman, I don’t see why any of us would. He hates us.

      • UrsusArctos 🐻

        There are some of ANY minority that thinks sucking up to the current evil might allow them to move up in wealth, social status, OR serve as a balm for their self-loathing. Bless their hearts.

  • zhera

    So that’s the African-American Donnie brags about. Figures, they’re cut from the same cloth.

    Another willing Puppet-Tool for the oligarchs jumping up and down saying, “pick me, pick me”.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Harvest Praise and Worship Center?

    Trump called them and threw a tantrum.

    What kind of loser place is this? All they did was talk about Jesus, not me. I thought they are about praise? He is more deserving of praise than me? Did you see the towels I gave to the PUERto Ricans? They were very soft, the best towels.

  • bambinoitaliano

    At some point calling oneself a Christian is declaring one as the most despicable human species. In truth, I’ve already seen them that way for years.

    • Todd20036

      The people who practice the more giving side of Christianity are the ones who don’t wear their religion on their sleeve.
      If someone tells you that “they’ve welcomed Jesus into their lives” or some other horseshit, you know to steer clear of them

      • CanuckDon

        If someone tells you that they’ve welcomed Jesus into their lives, it seems to be a red flag that there’s a shame-hiding reason why. Jesus isn’t the light…he’s the conveniently un-screwed bulb.

      • yes b’y

        • Todd20036

          Hmm. My mother sometimes said I needed to be shoved up and made over.
          Does that count?

        • Octoberfurst

          Same here. I used to work with a couple holy-rollers. They were the type who always had an open Bible on their desks and Biblical sayings hung on their walls. They were also the most arrogant, self-righteous, judgmental, back-stabbing cretins I have ever met. But they loved the baby Jesus! I know that because they seemed to mention it every 5 minutes. >eye roll<

          • yes b’y

            Working with them is the worst.

      • bambinoitaliano

        Precisely. Not very different from the fucking moron of a con man who always says “believe me”. Anyone precede with I’m a Christian as an introduction is a cover up of an immoral person that is untrustworthy.

      • UrsusArctos 🐻

        Same as NNY business that uses the Xian icthus. It’s a sure sign you’re about to be raked over the coals. My Pentecostal preacher grandpa said Pharisees were a shekel a camel turd and Xians showed it by deeds, not proclamation.

      • cleos_mom

        The ones who “don’t wear their religion on their sleeve” have been silent so far, other than the occasional NALT protestation. Maybe they wear their convictions in their underwear.

    • kaydenpat

      Given that Evangelicals threw their support behind an immoral, bigoted liar, that point has already been reached. It’s a good thing that I know some nice folks who call themselves Christians in my personal life because the prominent ones like Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham are nauseating.

    • olandp

      Whenever someone tells me they are a “good Christian” I always check my wallet.

    About the 1:40 mark in that video…what kind of Satanic font is Pastor Burns using on his resume? Maybe Beelzebub hacked his credentials.

    To cleanse your eyes and minds, check out the South Carolina Democrat challenging Rep. Mark Sanford. Thirty-five year old, Joe Cunningham, a Spanish-speaking attorney/ocean engineer who owns a yoga studio. What a refreshing change this would be for South Carolina.

    Why not? The leader of the Republican party who currently lives in the White House is a world class liar as is the Spokesperson who comes out everyday in front of the press and lies her behind off. And I’m not even going to say anything about Kelly Conwoman.

    How interesting and self-destructive this Trump MO is:
    First it started with the media embracing him…aiding and abetting his coming to power; followed by his later attempts to destroy them.
    When the shitgibbon won the GOP primary, the Republicans threw their entire support behind him…only to witness how he and his nihilistic allies are now trying to overthrow them.

    Anyone noticing a pattern yet?
