In right-wing world, President Donald Trump’s scandal ridden and error prone administration is a success. That’s why conservatives as gushing at his ‘successes.’
Televangelist Pat Robertson said the Pope should make Trump an honorary saint for his services to Christianity.
“Trump has reversed the war on Christianity,” said Robertson. “We finally have one of our own in the White House.”
It’s baffling that social conservatives have rushed to accept Trump, a thrice married, former casino owner, who has appeared in Playboy and a porn film. Evangelicals seem to have conveniently forgotten that.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. was over the moon about Trump’s presidency.
“I think Donald Trump has the potential to be the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln,” said Falwell in a FOX News interview.
John Morgan, a George W. Bush impersonator, also praised Trump during a speech at the Values Voters summit.
“Folks, I don’t know where we’re going. But I know God’s with us. It’s so exciting to watch the transformation of America taking place right before our eyes. And I know that God raised up Donald Trump for us,” said Morgan, according to Right Wing Watch.
However, Newsweek lambasted social conservatives’ support of Trump and described him as the “prince of lies.” According to Newsweek writer Nina Burleigh, Evangelical Christians see Trump’s election as a result of divine intervention, not Russian hacking.
“For many fundamentalists, Trump’s profligate dissembling and decades of dissipation are further proof that their Lord moves in mysterious ways. White evangelical supporters excuse Trump’s long history of immoral behavior by comparing him to various biblical heroes whose lives were less than exemplary but who nonetheless did God’s work. Lance Wallnau, author of a best-selling book about Trump called God’s Chaos Candidate, has claimed God spoke to him and said, /Donald Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness,’” said Burleigh.
