Republican Christians and Trump

When I first started this blog it was fun because most, if not all, Republican Christians were still trying to hide behind some self-appointed moral high ground in politics and especially religion. After President Obama was elected it was a little harder for them to hide behind that high ground but they still tried. Remember the so-called Christians were some of the first to cast stones.

Questioned his faith. Questioned his marriage. Questioned his citizenship.

Franklin Graham had some trouble believing President Obama was a Christian. He had no trouble believing Newt Gingrich was a Christian. The guy who famously had two mistresses and three wives. Franklin Graham offered a prayer at the inauguration of Trump. He is a vocal supporter of Trump. He has no trouble believing Trump is a Christian.

Even when the Republican Christians gave President Obama the benefit of going to church it was with disdain because he attended the wrong church. Remember the faux conservative outrage over a certain church and a certain pastor? Of course there is no outrage over Trump’s spiritual advisor out on TV preaching the prosperity gospel. Whatever the fuck that is.

I have been thinking about all of this lately while watching the same Christians overwhelmingly support Trump. And it is not just the “he’s going to get us pro-life judges” crowd. BTW I hope those judges are worth having this unprepared amateur trying to play president on TV during a pandemic.

Republican Christians love Trump. They are like his super base. His approval rating with white born Evangelicals is 75%. 75%! The pussygrabber is their guy! The guy who cheats on his THIRD wife with a porn star. That is their guy. The liar. The cheater. Their. Guy.

Trump is the poster guy for the Seven Deadly Sins and yet he is their guy. If you made a person out of the sins it would be Trump’s Mini-Me. It is as if they do not even believe their own bullshit anymore.

Pride No one knows more about pride than Donald Trump. Believe me.

Envy So envious of President Obama. And Cuomo now. I love it.

Gluttony More Gold. More Big Macs. More Women. More More More…

Lust Unprotected sex with a porn star four months after his THIRD wife gave birth. “Grab them by the pussy.” -Donald J. Trump

Wrath Colleagues. Allies. Friends. Employees. Women. Reporters. Etc.

Greed Trump and greed are synonymous.

Sloth Avoidance of spiritual or physical work… introducing Mr. Donald J. Trump!

Republican Christians are no longer hiding their beliefs with their support of Trump. It is over. I have always known that their Christianity was like a WWE character they played for the slack jaws, but now it is out there for everyone to see. Never again can they question or judge any politician or any person for that matter.

Their Christianity is more about oppression and racism and money and politics than it is about religion. Their Jesus brags about being able to get away with murder and abusing women and paying off people for his sins. They should be ashamed but they’re not, because again, Trump is somehow their guy.

Peace be with you,

REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY DURING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

I cannot help but notice all of the Republican hypocrisy during the first three weeks of the Trump administration. It is hilarious to watch Republicans act like they were a model opposition party for the last eight years instead of the ultra-obstructionist party we all remember. It is equally hilarious to watch Republicans abandon so many of the beliefs that they have been preaching for the last eight years. I have a feeling this is going to be a running list so here is the beginning..

1. Deficits no longer matter. Please forget what they have cried about for the last eight years..please refer to prior Republican administrations when they ran up huge deficits.

2. Executive orders are okay again…please disregard the “governing like a king” rhetoric when now referring to executive orders. Donald Trump signed 20 Executive Orders in his first 10 days in office. Republican response: crickets.

3. Super expensive designer clothes are now acceptable…I mean, what else would billionaires and their Stepford women wear?

4. Conflicts of interest no longer exist…because you know, billionaires and generals always do the right thing.

5. Friendship with hostile foreign leaders is now a positive not a negative…you cannot turn your back on those who help elect you.

6. Golf is now again okay for the president to play. He is golfing this weekend on his second vacation in his first three weeks in office.

7. The cost of the president to go on vacation, or to New York, or to Florida is no longer an issue. Apparently it is also not an issue to pay for his trust fund son to go on a business trip. Don’t they have their own mercenary goons?

8. The president deserves a chance to succeed…hahaha-because Republicans have no appreciation for irony or hypocrisy. Seriously, tears.

9. Hating the president is no longer patriotic…back to the good ol’ days where you better respect the president or get out of the country.

10. Supreme Court nominees should be treated fairly and given a straight up or down vote…no politics.

11. Goldman Sachs hedge fund bankers are not only back in good graces, but they have in fact been appointed to run our economy. Hey poor and middle class Republicans are you feeling conned yet? You should.

12. Republican “Christians” who voted for or somehow support this administration prove the point that their hypocrisy runs deep through any administration. Blocking refugees. “Not a Bible issue.” Who are these people?

13. It is okay for the president to weigh in on rulings by the judicial branch…and also okay to then attack the judge and the decision if it is against the wishes of the president.

14. The jobs numbers are magically real again! For 75 consecutive months of job growth the Republican response has been that the jobs numbers are not the real numbers and that unemployment is in fact much higher. Miraculously on the very first “Trump jobs report” the Republicans are touting President Obama’s continued record of job growth. Funny however that the usual Republican jobs experts out on the Internet were nowhere to be found. During his White House press briefing on Friday Sean Spicer said, “They may have been phony in the past, but it’s very real now.” Hahaha…you cannot make this up! Tears.

Peace be with you,
