Rev. Maurice Watson made a bold statement about the vulgar words of Donald Trump right in front of the Vice President of the United States. Rev. Watson got a standing ovation during his sermon at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, Maryland after blasting Trump’s “s***h*** comments directed towards Haiti and African nations while VP Mike Pence was in attendance.
According to NBC 4 Rev. Watson said “I felt I needed to speak up, and I would have spoken up regardless to whether the vice president came or not,” Watson said. “It wasn’t about his being there. This was about trying to be a responsible pastor to speak up for God’s people.”
“I did not look at him while speaking,” Watson said. “I wanted to keep my focus on speaking to my people, because it wasn’t a personal attack. I wasn’t trying to personally go after the vice president.”
The White House confirmed Pence’s visit to the church:
“Yes, the VP attended the service yesterday with the Second Lady and Secretary Perdue.” “He was welcomed by the Pastor and the congregation received him with open arms. The VP and Second Lady went from church to lay a wreath at the MLK monument.”
