‘I Just Don’t Think That’s in the Lord’s Plan for This World’
Pat Robertson, the man who agreed gay people caused the 9/11 attacks to happen has an entirely different feeling about nuclear war with North Korea. Many Americans since Tuesday night have been distressed over a tweet President Donald Trump posted that taunts Kim Jong-un over the size of their respective nuclear launch buttons. Trump insisted his is “much bigger,” even though he doesn’t even have nuclear button at all.
“I don’t think we’re going to have a nuclear war,” the televangelist told his “700 Club” viewers Wednesday. “I don’t think that God almighty is going to allow that to happen to this world.”
“I think there are too many important things to be done, spiritually,” Robertson, who suggested in 2012 God told him Barack Obama would lose re-election,Â insisted. “I just don’t think that’s in the Lord’s plan for this world.”
Robertson says God’s just not going to allow a nuclear war, and “if he has to take out Kim Jong-un in order to accomplish that, that’s what’ll happen.”
The octogenarian preacher recently lamented that “terrific people” are being ruined by sexual misconduct allegations. He also blamed the Texas church massacre, which left 26 people dead, on antidepressants, and the Las Vegas massacre thatÂ left 58 people dead and over 500 injured on a “profound disrespect for our president.”

Trump Replaces Brad Parscale As Re-Election Campaign Hits the Skids
President Donald Trump has just replaced his flailing campaign manager Brad Parscale, as experts increasingly say his re-election chances wither. Parscale will stay with the campaign in the role he had during 2016.
Trump made the announcement on Facebook, trying to put a positive spin on the bad news.
“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager,” the president said. “Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign. Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together. This one should be a lot easier as our poll numbers are rising fast, the economy is getting better, vaccines and therapeutics will soon be on the way, and Americans want safe streets and communities!”
Just hours ago a devastating Quinnipiac poll put former Vice President Joe Biden 15 points ahead of Trump. Worse, the polling organization’s analyst reported the results offer “no upside, no silver lining, no encouraging trend hidden somewhere in this survey for the president.”
Stepien, who was embroiled in the infamous “Bridgegate” scandal, had been Chris Christie’s chief of staff until the former New Jersey governor fired him in 2014.
Tweet from super PAC American Bridge’s opposition researcher:
Trump's campaign manager was Christie's campaign manager, and he's famous for exactly one thing: The illegal use of the governing power of the state against political enemies for the purpose of winning election campaigns

‘No Silver Lining, No Encouraging Trend for the President’: Pollster Explains How Biden Is Beating Trump by 15 Points
A polling analyst for the highly-regarded Quinnipiac Poll explained how former Vice President Joe Biden is beating President Donald Trump in the latest survey by a whopping 15 points.
“Independents are a key factor behind Biden’s widening lead as they now back him 51 – 34 percent, while in June, independents were split with 43 percent for Biden and 40 percent for Trump,” Quinnipiac reports. “There is also some movement among Republicans as they back Trump 84 – 9 percent, compared to 92 – 7 percent in June. Democrats go to Biden 91 – 5 percent, little changed from 93 – 4 percent in June. ”
In the latest Q poll Biden is beating Trump 52 – 37 percent – practically doubling his lead to 15 points from just one month ago. In June Biden led Trump 49 – 41 percent, an 8-point spread.
“Yes, there’s still 16 weeks until Election Day, but this is a very unpleasant real time look at what the future could be for President Trump. There is no upside, no silver lining, no encouraging trend hidden somewhere in this survey for the president,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
Quinnipiac adds that Trump has now lost what was his one remaining advantage over Biden.
“President Trump’s approval rating on the economy is underwater,” with voters trusting Biden on the economy 53 percent to 44 percent.
“Today’s numbers are his worst net score on the economy since August of 2017.”
This Q poll was conducted from July 9 – 13 among 1,273 self-identified registered voters.
‘Where Is the Law?’: Internet Trashes Trump as He Feeds Off Anger Over Ivanka’s Illegal Goya Endorsement With One of His Own
Outrage was immediate when First Daughter and Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump endorsed Goya Foods in a tweet late Tuesday night. Government ethics experts says it clearly violated federal law. Worse, it came just days after the CEO of Goya praised President Donald Trump from the Rose Garden at the White House, saying the country is “truly blessed” to have Trump as president.
Moments ago, clearly smelling the widespread outrage, President Donald Trump did a Goya Foods endorsement of his own.

Many Americans are furious, especially given the coronavirus pandemic that Trump is ignoring.
He’s busy selling Goya.
Priorities, you know.
True story, sadly. pic.twitter.com/AmamW8me8Z

It’s appalling that the current president of the USA is actively promoting the products of a for-profit company & doing so from the White House – literally! And as is always the case, there are no consequences for this grossly unethical conduct.https://t.co/z1Kc7seX6K pic.twitter.com/Aa33AqOQWV

Jesus fucking Christ, can’t we end this shit already? We’re living inside of a parody and it’s not cute or funny at all anymore. https://t.co/RLLjXtyiFK

The president and his daughter are committing ethics violations and nobody will do anything about it b/c the attorney general is too busy looking for peaceful protesters to gas and even tweeting about it feels like a giant waste of time b/c Trump is also getting people killed.

Trump shares photo with Goya Foods products after Ivanka faces criticism https://t.co/Vh7RgQBNTV YOUR POS PRESIDENT ADVERTISING FOR GOYA FOODS. LIKE ALL ELSE HE HAS DONE TOTALLY ILLEGAL. WHERE IS THE LAW????
— George Weinkotz (@george124) July 15, 2020
As if she’s ever seen a can of black beans before. trump himself did a photo “ad” for Goya also. None of them have the slightest concept of what “illegal” means.#PhonyJoni
— Matt (@Giant_Cyclone) July 15, 2020
Exactly. All talk but no action. Trump is also endorsing Goya with their products spread all over the Oval Office desk. This is illegal. Action needs to be taken NOW!
— Cher Davis (@cherdavis1000) July 15, 2020
@realDonaldTrump @TheJusticeDept It’s illegal for you and daddy to do this while in office. You want to do this then quit your job and go work for Goya. I have never seen such a corrupt administration and family. pic.twitter.com/qyfYnBUueC
