WATCH: Roland Martin and NewsOne Now Panel Talk About Pastor Mark Burns’ Lies


Donald Trump surrogate Pastor Mark Burns has found himself embroiled in a massive controversy as a result of embellishing the credentials on his bio.

The South Carolina pastor padded his resume by overstating his college and military service, but the one line that ultimately led to his exposure is the claim that he was a member of Kappa Alpha Psi.

On today’s edition of NewsOne Now, Ralph Chittams, Senior Vice Chairman of the DC Republican Party revealed the bottom line: “The first line that took him down was lying about the Divine Nine…Any Black person knows you don’t front on the Divine Nine, because they are going to come at you.”

Michelle Bernard questioned Donald Trump’s campaign for soliciting the services of a “fraud” and having him speak at the Republican Convention.

Chittams, a Republican, explained, “They don’t have qualified Black people in certain positions that know how to properly vet someone before they put them in front of a microphone.”
