The Black Lives Matter movement has been disrupting several political candidates at speaking events of late, so one candidate, Jeb Bush, decided to get out in front of the issue and have a ‘face to face’ meeting with the group.
Trouble is, as with much of what Jeb Bush says, that was a lie.
Oh, he did have a meeting, but there was not a single Black lives Matter activist in attendance. Instead, Jeb met with a local elected official, a GOP lobbyist and a staffer from an anti-poverty organization.
Three people; and not one a Black Lives Matter activist. One was a member of the Las Vegas Urban League, and one was North Las Vegas Mayor Pro Tem Pamela Goynes-Brown, and Sean Fellows, a registered lobbyist for a communications firm was the third.
Jeb Bush said he was meeting with Black Lives Matter.
But that was a lie. And that’s how Jeb Bush rolls.
