Somehow, there are many evangelical right-wingers who have been supporting our crotch-grabbing President-elect Donald Trump. It’s almost like he has created a cult. This particular televangelist is comparing Trump to Jesus’ disciples.
Rick Joyner, who heads the Christian publishing organization MorningStar, said he had been talking to Trump during the campaign. Joyner said Trump is:
“… Very different than what the media portrayed him as being.”
He said that Trump was near tears when they were talking about deporting immigrants and breaking up families.
“I saw the tears well up in his eyes. He was about to bust out crying.”
As if that wasn’t gag-worthy enough, Joyner then said:
“I think if you look at the disciples that Jesus chose, they were all Donald Trump. Every one of them were Donald Trumps.”
Seriously, Mr Joyner? This racist Orange Menace is far from Jesus’ disciples.
I’m an atheist, but Jesus’ disciples had to have been better than Trump. I’m sure that Jesus’ disciples wouldn’t have been advocating for nuclear weapons. They wouldn’t have advocated torture. Trump is conning these people into thinking he is one of them.
Considering Joyner’s history, this isn’t too surprising. He said climate change is a Communist plot.
Joyner is just one of many Evangelicals who have fallen under Trump’s spell. Bill Maher gave this great description of Trump:
“He is the world’s least Godly man. Jesus saw the good in whores and lepers, but if he met Donald Trump he’d say ‘sorry man, but that’s a pre-existing condition.”
I don’t know how these religious people could possibly have followed Donald Trump after all of the nasty things he said during the campaign. I wonder if they are regretting that choice now.
