Knock, Knock.. Who's There?

And St. Peter said, “Oh, no Mr. Trump. It doesn’t matter what you said on Fox News. 
We have it right here. 'Misstatement' 10,500,000. The one you said about Flint. Remember... 
when you stood inside the Church...”
Remarked NPR correspondent Scott Detrow, "I was in the room in Flint as a pool reporter at the time, and here's what happened... As Trump began to criticize his opponent, Hillary Clinton, Timmons slowly walked back onto the stage."

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

"Oh, oh, OK, OK, OK. That's good," Trump said. "Then I'm going to go back onto Flint, OK."

"The audience was saying, 'Let him speak, let him speak,' " Trump told Fox and Friends.

"That isn't true. In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord."

"And that's when Timmons — who Trump said Thursday had planned to ambush him — stepped in to defend Trump, saying the Republican nominee was "a guest of my church, and you will respect him."

"Thank you. Thank you, Pastor," Trump responded.

The pointed questions for Trump continued as he wrapped up his remarks, though — and that's the moment when the press traveling with Trump were hastily escorted out of the room."
