Did Flint Preacher Set a Trap for Trump?

The minister of a Methodist church made national headlines after she scolded Donald Trump for injecting politics into a campaign stop.

The Rev. Faith Green Timmons came on stage and stopped Trump in the middle of his remarks at Bethel United Methodist Church. 

She told him to stay focused on the water crisis and not Hillary Clinton.

"I invited you here to thank us for what we've done in Flint, not give a political speech," the reverend told Mr. Trump. 

Trump graciously complied with her demand.

But something doesn't pass the smell test. Consider this screen grab from the minister's Facebook page: "We have our chance to show Donald Trump that this nation is filled with intelligent, wise black citizens of integrity many of whom live right in Flint, Michigan," she wrote. "What he will see is how we are braving a man-made catastrophe. HE WILL NOT USE US, WE will EDUCATE HIM!!!"

Well, I guess the Rev. Timmons showed Mr. Trump—ambushing him in a house of worship. I will give her credit for hushing up a protester who kept interrupting his remarks. 

By the way, the Rev. Timmons has since deleted that Facebook post. Hmm.

Mr. Trump showed great restraint and class as he complied with her request. And he deserves credit for at least trying to start a dialogue.
