Disgusting. Oh, and someone actually wore a hoodie. The exploitation of pain in this country by supposed “civil rights leaders” is beyond comprehension.
President Obama hosted a pre-Easter prayer breakfast at the White House this morning with members of his administration and clergymen. Prominent breakfast attendees included Rev. Al Sharpton, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, and Rev. Julius Scruggs. White House aides told the press pooler at the breakfast that “heads of major denominations, non-profit leaders and prominent mainline, Evangelical, Orthodox and Catholic leaders from across the spectrum” were all in attendance this morning.
But not all the clergymen came to pray. Some came to deliver a political message.
As the press pooler notes:
One pastor wore a hoodie, the symbol of Trayvon Martin, the young black man shot to death by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
The pooler does not note which pastor was wearing the hoodie.
Vice President Joe Biden also delivered a political message this morning, the pooler notes, though his related to taxes:
VP Joe Biden spoke for about 5 minutes. He joked about his “12 years of nuns” in school but said it was worth it. “I’m often characterized as the White House optimist. I like it because it makes me seem younger than I am,” he said, adding he’s older than everyone there.
Biden spoke of the need for sacrifice – “equal sacrifice” – a nod to Obama tax policy he ended with the words, “Keep the faith,” and then visited tables.
