Robertson: Trump is Being Persecuted Like Jesus

Televangelist Pat Robertson has chastised the “liberal media” for their attacks against President Donald Trump. In an appearance on “The 700 Club,” he compared them to the Pharisees, a religious sect that persecuted Jesus.

“The satanic, fake media are just like the Pharisees, who opposed everything Jesus tried to do,” said Robertson. “But when you have a great man, who is trying to change the world like Trump is, then people will attack you.”

Trump is still receiving strong support from Evangelical Christians even though his White House has been marked by scandals and departures of several high-level staff such as the recently-fired Anthony Scaramucci.

According to Right-Wing Watch, Pastor Rick Joyner compared Trump’s leadership style to Jesus’. Joyner said Jesus “was the best leader there will ever be” and his apostles also fought among themselves.

“Why were they fighting? Because they are stallions! These are serious leaders. They’re the real thing and they’re going to jostle and they’re going to fight, they’re going to position themselves. Trump has chosen those type of people for this cabinet,” said Joyner.
