Joy Reid battled Pastor Mark Burns this morning on AM Joy over his defense of President Trump on immigration. Burns first disputed the accuracy of the “shithole” comments and claimed he knows that this didn’t happen. Reid pointed to statements from people like Lindsey Graham and asked him, “Were you in the room?”
Towards the end of the interview, as Burns continued, Reid said, “I’m gonna give you one more chance to answer my question and then we’re gonna be done here, because you’re actually wasting my time when you talk over me and don’t answer my question.”
Burns told Reid “you’re wasting my time,” to which she responded, “Oh, well then, if I’m wasting your time, then goodbye.” And the interview ended.
You may recall that in 2016 Burns jumped out of his chair and fled a CNN interview when he was busted live on the air for having faked his military record and education.

I want Pastor Mark Burns to explain how he is helping “Black Americans here in poverty” by supporting a Central-Park-5-accusing, stop-and-frisking, CHIP-denying, social-service-budget-cutting, birther-supporting, Obama-attacking, xenophobic, lying racist. https://t.co/jg02XqOIgc

The so-called man of God, Mark Burns, made a fool of himself this morning on AM Joy. It is sad Joy gave audience to this man who not only lied about his credentials and background, but highly unpastoral. This “Pastor” was rude and combative with Joy; very uncivilized. @amjoyshow

.@K_JEANPIERRE on Mark Burns: I think he and #DonaldTrump need to go through a history lesson of #Haiti and the United States… The pastor and #Trump needs to understand that Haiti has been governed and exploited by the United States in the past. #AMJoy pic.twitter.com/Y0L3maVfJM

Mark Burns is a rambling buffoon. He is a clueless tail kisser of racist *45. He is unable to hold a conversation and disrespectfully talks over @JoyAnnReid because he can’t provide a rational answer to simple questions. Disgusting and disgraceful. #AMJoy pic.twitter.com/ZsxVXrvbkL
