Televangelist Pat Robertson has launched a stinging attack on the mainstream media, which he claimed is being directed by Satan.
“As President Trump said, the fake media are making up negative stories about him,” said Robertson on “The 700 Club.” “God put Trump in the White House, so if the media are against him they must be on the side of Satan. I pray the Lord causes their keyboards to jam and their computers to crash.”
Trump, a thrice-married former casino owner, has heavily courted the Religious Right. Conservative Christians cynically decided to overlook his glaring flaws and vote for a candidate who they thought could deliver. Last week Trump held a photo op to mark the signing of his religious liberty executive order. But according to Raw Story, the executive order doesn’t really accomplish anything.
“Trump’s rhetoric about protecting religious liberty was soaring, but the actual language of his order fell far short, so much so that the American Civil Liberties Union, which had geared up to challenge the order in Court, announced that it wouldn’t bother because ‘it turned out the order signing was an elaborate photo-op with no discernible policy outcome,’” said Right Wing Watch’s Peter Montgomery.
