President Donald Trump house servant pastor Darrell Scott made an embarrassment of himself this week after he made a verbal goof in saying Chicago gang leaders were ready to work with the administration to curb violence. Pastor Scott said that his statement was a mistake and there are no talks between the president and gang leaders.

On Wednesday (Feb. 1), Scott made the claim that he spoke with gang leaders who said they would “lower the body count” if Trump instituted federal programs to assist people in the city. Later in the day, however, Scott put on his moon-walking shoes and slid backward on the comments in saying that he “misspoke” about the supposed meeting.

Fox 32 exclusively reports:

FOX 32: So, there are no gang leaders offering to reduce the body count in exchange for federal funds?

“No! I mean, c’mon now! (laughs) No!” Pastor Darrell Scott said.

Rev. Darrell Scott was laughing about it Wednesday night. A few hours earlier, though, the Cleveland Heights, Ohio, pastor told President Trump that Chicago’s “top gang thugs” wanted him to pass along a sensational offer.

“They’re going to commit that if they lower the body count, we come and do some social programs,” Scott said.

“If they’re not going to solve the problems, what you’re doing is the right thing, then we’re going to solve the problem for them. Because we’re going to have to do something about Chicago. ‘Cause what’s happening in Chicago should not be happening in this country,” Trump responded.

So basically, Mr. Shoeshines here lied in the president’s face about the plans and made the already loosey-goosey White House look even more disjointed. Scott tried to clean up his verbal diarrhea by saying he did speak to one gang member, adding that a lack of sleep led to his silly lip slip.
