Chris Hayes Destroys Trump’s ‘Spiritual’ Biographer: ‘Is There a Single Person on God’s Great Earth’ Who Thinks He Reads the Bible?

Published

on

Christian Broadcasting Network White House Correspondent David Brody says evangelical Christians are all in for Donald Trump because he has “been on a spiritual journey the past few years.”

Brody, the co-author of “The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography,” told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Tuesday evening that the only way the Christian far right will drop The Donald is if he’s found with a “Monica Lewinsky in the White House.”

In other words, the religious far right, who have spent decades attacking LGBT people, same-sex marriage, interracial marriage, diversity, feminism, equality, and many other social changes, the group that conceived into being the “Moral Majority,” televangelism, and many other religious-political creations, is now willing to 100 percent overlook the astonishingly long list of sins this U.S. President commits on a regular basis – unless he takes a mistress inside the White House.

That’s where they will draw the line.

Brody, pushing his book, told Hayes “we haven’t seen anything the last few years,” on Donald Trump – meaning, Trump has not done anything the religious right has an issue with over the past few years.

Daily lying, targeting and unleashing his venom on people of all backgrounds, ad hominem attacks, a poor work ethic, possible collusion, possible obstruction of justice, using his office for financial gain, breaking apart families, taking away health care from the poor – none of that registers with evangelical Christians. None of that matters.

Hayes demanded to know if Trump’s “spiritual journey” includes the basics.

“David, David I read my Bible and I grew up in the church, and grace doesn’t come cheap and you gotta ask for it, and you gotta ask for forgiveness, and you have to be pious, and you have to pray to your Lord, God, and Savior and you gotta ask for it,” Hayes reminded Brody. “You have to have a change of heart and you have to reach out spiritually. Is there a single person on God’s great earth that believes Donald Trump is doing that?”

Brody responded that in September of 2015 Trump told him he does ask God for forgiveness.

“Now look, that’s his word,” Brody said, trying to put a sliver of distance between himself and Trump.

“He also talked about when you asked him what God means to him he also talked about how great his golf course is that he didn’t have a mortgage on,” Hayes responded.

It appears the White House press corps are not being allowed to leave the room.

“There was a shooting outside of the White House,” Trump says upon returning minutes later. He says reporter John Roberts reported he heard shots. He also says he was taken to the Oval Office, and “law enforcement” shot the suspect.

Trump Puts Gettysburg on RNC Speech Shortlist – 4 Years Ago He Was There Complaining About the ‘Rigged’ Election System

Published

on

President Donald Trump still has not decided if the RNC should hold the most important portion of the 2020 convention at the White House or at the site of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The last time Trump visited the site of the Battle of Gettysburg, late October 2016, he “declared that the system is rigged against him, that election results cannot be trusted, that Hillary Clinton should have been barred from running for president, that the media is ‘corrupt’ and that he will sue all of the women who have accused him of sexual assault,” The Washington Post reported at the time.

“Trump also implied that what he called rampant voter fraud could cost him the election and said the media was ‘dishonest.'”

The newspaper added that Trump also spent “more than 13 minutes listing his grievances.”

Sound familiar?

Published

Nikki Haley is once again being widely mocked for a tweet. A few weeks ago it was this tweet, which basically was a very effective ad for Joe Biden:

Now, it’s something far less political – or is it?

Monday morning President Donald Trump’s former U.S. Ambassador to the UN complained about… late birthday popcorn.

This one tweet seems to sum up the opinions of many:

Many mocked Haley for being tone deaf to Trump’s destruction of the U.S. Postal Service.

Many reminded the former Republican governor of South Carolina that we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

Many mocked her for her horrible record or priorities:

Many mocked her for her support of President Donald Trump:

And some, well, just mocked her for being cheap:
