The [Friday] Papers

"An Ohio pastor told FOX 32 that he 'misspoke' at the White House. He created a national sensation by telling President Trump Wednesday that Chicago gang leaders would 'lower the body count' if given new federal programs," Mike Flannery reports for Fox Chicago News.

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

Pastor Darrell Scott: "No! I mean, c'mon now! (laughs) No!"

Darrell Scott, you are Today's Worst Person Within Two States Of Chicago.

*

"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.

Who?

"Top. Thugs."

*

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

Like one less death per million, or what?

*

Oops.

"Scott also told FOX 32 a lack of sleep caused him to tell President Trump that Chicago gangs had offered to 'lower the body count.' He said he actually spoke to one former gang member, and not to any gang leaders."

I constantly lack sleep and I've never claimed gang leaders have called me to talk body counts.

Then again, I haven't been "Serving God's Kingdom for 30 years."
